Johnnie Walker Double Black Label 750mL

Hello ladies and gentlemen. Welcome to another Booze Review. This one is a good one. Yup.

Alright I will be honest: right now I am dreading writing this because I have not had alcohol in over two weeks because I am trying to get into shape and it does not help. I feel like a fraud. I feel I have disgraced the other members of our troupe by doing this but I need to think of my physical conditioning right now.

Glenfiddich 12yr 750mL

Ahh to review scotch again. Well plainly we’ve had quite a lot of whisky this past October, but while Single Barrel is nice – it’s still Jack Daniels, and I will always prefer my whisky coming from across the pond then in the depths of the American south. Unfortunately while we have a scotch here – a single malt as well, there is something left to desire. I never understood why some people would compare Glenlivet to Glenfiddich, because honestly the latter is merely average.

A Journey of Justice: Part 4

Dear Booze Reviewers,

Well everyone, I’m home.  Those of you in the Buffalo Lounge no doubt already know of my safe return to my homeland.  However, despite this I feel that I must recount to you the final days of my expedition.  You will recall that in my previous letter I told of my time in a faraway land with an exotic, yet strangely familiar single malt whisky.  It took me several weeks but eventually I found my way out of that place and back onto a path I felt led me to my destination.  My intuition proved true, as within a day I found myself standing before a treasure trove.

I, JimmathyJethro Justice, have decided to write you once again, with tales of my travels.  I hope that all is well back in the Buffalo Lounge and I want you all to know that despite my traveling, I have not shirked my duties.  It has been nearly two weeks since my last correspondence and I have more tales to tell you about my search for inner mysteries of scotch.

A Journey of Justice: Part 1

Dear friends and comrades,

I, Jimmathy Jethro Justice, have just set out on a journey.  I know not when I will return or how long it will be before I can sample another alcoholic beverage with you again.  However, this is a journey I must undertake.  I have decided to catalog my journey and send back to you my adventures, so that you may share them with the world.

I set out two days past, donning my traveling cloak and packing only the barest of essentials.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Scotch 750mL

Hello and welcome to a particularly momentous edition of booze reviews.  I am the man called Justice, and I am happy.  On our final night together at college we decided to celebrate by purchasing what I would venture to call the King of Blended Scotches: Johnnie Walker Blue Label.  Now up until this point I was the only one who’d tried this scotch previously, so this time I was determined to put on my most critical booze reviews face and make certain that I didn’t give it any breaks.

Chivas Regal 18yr Blended Scotch 750mL

Ladies and Gentlemen, I am the man called Justice and this week the Booze Reviews Crew is bringing you a particularly special treat.  Its been a long time coming, but today we bring you Chivas Regal 18 year blended scotch whiskey.  Before you ask, yes this is a liquor that deserves to have its full name used.  Now I am a lover of high grade scotches, and though I can’t claim to have tried as many as the Buffalo, I have sampled a fairly robust number of scotches.  That being said, there are few blended scotches which have tried which rival the flavor of this one.  Off the top of my head only Johnny Walker Blue Label is a scotch I’ve tried better than this one (though that really isn’t a fair example).
