During my recent trip back to Melbourne, I had the chance of working alongside two of the most illustrious whisky bars they had: The Elysian Whisky Bar and Whisky & Alement. While I was collaborating with the both of them, I also had the chance to sample several exceptional expressions from their range of offerings […]Read more "Whisky Review #129: Pluscarden 1977 38 Years Old (Bottled by Silver Seal)"

But rather than set lofty targets, […]Read more "Whisky Review #118: SMWS 46.52 “A Storm In A Barrel”"

There was also a fair bit of inertia in play, but that’s to be expected. As such, I endeavour to provide at least two reviews per week […]Read more "Whisky Review #117: SMWS 30.97 “Dancing On A Volcano”"
