The Verdict

Geoff9/10

EP 69: Dingle

Single Malt Irish Whiskey

County Kerry Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“It’s just tasty. The aftertaste is very sweet. At the very beginning it’s quite strong for an Irish. Very smooth. I’m really enjoying it.”

Alex8.5/10

“It’s very tasty, I like that sweetness that comes with it. Not a huge burn, but I don’t really miss it because it’s so tasty and smooth.”

EP 68: FEW

Rye Whiskey

FEW Spirits Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“It's herby. There's a lot of different flavors going on.  It's got the burn...it's a bit spicy but smooth like a typical Rye. Very very good, what can I say.”

Alex8.5/10

"FEW Rye has more than a few flavors that I'm tasting. I like the spiciness, I think its smooth. It's got a really nice burn to it. It's a very full flavor.”

EP 67: Sourland Mountain Spirits

Double Oaked Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Disch and Sons Distillers

The Verdict

Geoff8.5/10

“I am digging this bourbon, baby. It’s spicy...some heat to it. There are very few bourbons that tickle my fancy, [this one] is tasty.”

Alex8/10

"There’s a really strong burn. The more you drink it, the easier it gets. It’s spicy, but also with a deep sweeter flavor. I really like it. I’m surprised how much I like it.”

EP 66: Penderyn Myth

Single Malt Welsh Whisky

Penderyn Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7.5/10

“It’s good. If we need more before the review comes, it means we like it. It’s subdued, but what’s there is really good.”

Alex7/10

"It’s smooth, a different type of flavor. It’s not crazy strong in any direction. Not a huge burn - a bit, but it’s enough. Shelf worthy.”

EP 65: Stork Club Full Proof Rye

German Rye Whiskey

Spreewood Distillers

The Verdict

Geoff9/10

"They make rye that rivals American rye. Good Lord, it’s lovely. Quite tasty."

It’s delicious. It’s got a really nice burn. It has a heavy flavor, which I like."

EP 64: Flaming Pig

Irish Whiskey

Flaming Pig Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

Alex8.3/10

"It’s really good, I really like it. I love the creamy taste to it. It’s got a nice burn, not too hard, the flavors aren’t super in your face anywhere, but very tasty.

EP 63: Belgian Owl

Belgian Single Malt Whisky

Belgian Owl Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“For a three year old whisky, this is quite good. It’s tasty.”

Alex8/10

“There’s a lot of flavor there. It tastes good. I wouldn’t say it’s anything crazy special...it’s something I would drink again."

EP 62: Säntis Malt

Swiss Alpine Whisky

Locher Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff6/10

It’s interesting. It just does not fit my pallet and what I like. I’m glad I tried it. I’d rather have this than something without a lot of flavor. Somewhere out there, there is somebody who would really enjoy this, it's just not meant for me."

Alex4/10

“This is something if I had it a few more times I could learn to like. The more I’m drinking it the more I like it, but I don’t like it...yet. It doesn’t taste like a bad whiskey. It just has flavors I don’t like. My tongue is like naaah.”

EP 61: Nestville

Slovakian Whisky

Nestville Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7.5/10

“It’s good. It’s a stronger flavor. There’s a little bit [of burn]. It’s interesting...”

EP 60: Hammer Head

Single Malt Czech Whisky

Pradlo Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8.5/10

“I’ve been enjoying it throughout the episode very much. It’s very tasty. It’s incredibly smooth; goes down super easy.”

EP 59: Vina - The Italian Whisky

Italian Whisky

Puni Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff6.5/10

“It doesn’t really stand out. Not a remarkable whisky. There is very little burn, very subtle. I would put the bottle on your shelf - not necessarily to drink it.”

Alex6/10

“It’s definitely smooth and easy to drink. It’s not giving me a lot of flavor generally. The flavor there is good, but it lasts a second and it’s gone.”

EP 58: Adnams

Triple Malt English Whisky

Copper House Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“There’s flavors in here that I’m not used to and I’m digging it. The burn is not big, but it’s there. It’s got a bold flavor.”

Alex8/10

“I find it really really smooth. 'Bold' is a good way to put it. For 50 €, it’s worth the price.”

EP 57: Armorik

Single Malt French Whisky

Warenghem Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7.5/10

“I have been enjoying what’s going in my mouth. I have been enjoying sipping this. My expectations were low, but it exceeded my expectations.”

Alex7.5/10

“I do like it. It has this interesting fruity flavor. It's nothing crazy, but it has this special, 'how you doing' there. Clearly, the French can make liquids. I like it a lot.”

EP 56: Paul John

Single Malt Indian Whisky

Paul John Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“I like it, it’s good. It clears the sinuses. It’s got a stronger burn. It’s a flavor that slaps you in the face. It’s tasty.”

Alex8.0/10

“It’s strong, but I like it. Definitely not a beginners whisky. It tastes like a really strong scotch.”

EP 55: Roe & Co

Blended Irish Whiskey

Roe & Co Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“I am a big Irish whiskey fan. This is a good Irish whiskey. It’s got a good burn - it’s smooth. It’s got this flavor, I can’t put my finger on it. It’s not present in a standard Irish whiskey. Good substitute for a Jameson.”

Alex8.2 (8 for Geoff's Mom)/10

“This whiskey gave me a very good first impression. It’s got a sweet fruity flavor that I’m really enjoying. I did not expect this.”

EP 54: Dalwhinnie - 15 Year

Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Dalwhinnie Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7/10

“There’s nothing amazing about this whisky. It’s a diet scotch, scotch light. It’s a solid standard whiskey that I’ll go to, that I’ll drink. Nothing sets it’s apart from the other 53 whiskeys we’ve had.”

Alex7/10

“I wish there was more “scotch flavor” to it, it’s not smokey at all. It’s average.”

EP 53: Glenfarclas - 12 Year

Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glenfarclas Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“It does have a little bit of smokiness, a little bit of the burn, and a little smoothness. From the first sip I knew it was an 8. It’s a very tasty scotch at a very good price.”

Alex8.5/10

“I really like this whisky. It just tastes like a really good scotch. It’s warm and it’s got a decent burn. Smoky, but not too smoky. Really, really solid whisky.”

EP 52: Enso

Pot Still Japanese Whisky

Enso Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7/10

“It’s pretty dull, flavor wise. Having said that this is a beautiful whisky, it tastes good. Other Japanese Whiskies we’ve had are better. Has little to no burn at all. I don’t think this is worth 40 Euro.”

Alex8/10

“I really like it. Has more of a sweeter flavor. Smooth maybe to a fault. You can definitely get a better whisky than this. It is missing something, but the flavor it gives me, I like.”

EP 51: Heaven's Door

American Straight Rye Whiskey

Heaven's Door Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“It’s a rye. It’s good. I can’t say it’s an extremely special rye. It’s a solid quality rye. I can’t really fault it. It's very good. I enjoy drinking it.”

Alex8.5/10

“It doesn’t have this usually sweeter taste, but I do like the taste. It has that bite to it, it’s got a nice burn. My brain keeps putting it to my face.”

EP 50: Blackforest Wild Whisky

German Single Malt Whisky

Franz Wild Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“It's hard to describe, I can't put my finger on what this whisky is. I drink it and I like it. There's a lot going on for like 5-10 seconds and I like that.”

Alex8.5/10

“I really like it, I didn't expect it to be this good. It's sweeter, not a lot of burn to it."

EP 49: Writer's Tears - Copper Pot

Aged Single Pot and Single Malt Irish Whiskey

Walsh Whiskey Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7.5/10

“I find it very good, very comforting. Smooth Whiskey. For 25 Euro, I feel this is 40 Euro worth of whiskey flavor.”

Alex7.5/10

“For 25 Euro I recommend this to everybody. The flavory is nothing crazy. I wouldn't say it's full bodied. It's got a decent flavor and a decent burn, but for 25 Euro it's very good."

EP 48: Elsburn Wayfare Cast Strength

German Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Hercynian Distilling Company

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“Very strange flavor for whiskey. It’s much sweeter than any whiskey I have ever had. Definitely a winter whiskey. It’s not the standard whiskey flavor, but I really like what it’s giving me. I like that it’s different.” 

Alex8.5/10

“One of the most interesting whiskeys we have ever had. This would be a really good after thanksgiving whiskey. One of the most unique whiskeys we have ever had."

EP 47: Aberfeldy 18 Year

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Aberfeldy Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff9/10

“Very interesting color. It's really good. In my mind, it does not taste like a 100 euro whisky - it's a really good whisky, doesn't blow me out of my seat." 

Alex:  9.5/10

“I really do like this fruity taste that I'm getting. I can't give a reason its not a 10. It's perfect. It's a really, really, really fantastic whisky.”

“I like it. Nothing to write home about, but it’s good. It’s a good faithful scotch." 

Alex:  7.3/10

EP 45: Starward Single Malt Australian Whisky

Single Malt Whisky

New World Whisky Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7/10

“There’s nothing special about it. It’s a good 'have in your hand keep refilling' type of whiskey. Above average. I enjoy it." 

Alex:  7.7/10

“I could use a little bit more. Really nice after taste that lingers in my nose. Nothing incredibly mind blowing.”

EP 44: Kyrö Malt Rye Whisky

Finnish Rye Whisky

Kyrö Distillery Company 

The Verdict

Geoff9/10

“I dig it, its super good. It's like I'm sipping a waffle. This is a winter whisky."

German Rye Whiskey

Spreewood Distillers

Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Lagavulin Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff8/10

“It's really good. if I had to make a list of my top 5 scotch, I would probably put it on there." 

Alex 8/10

EP 39: Redbreast - 12 Years

Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

The Midleton Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff9/10

“That's a whiskey. This has the bite and it's very smooth as well. From that first sip it was really tasty." 

Alex 9/10

“I'm going to enjoy drinking this. It's exceptionally smooth...this one is a higher price, but the flavor really reflects that price”

EP 38: Mack by Mackmyra

Swedish Single Malt Whisky

The Gravity Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff5/10

“The thing is it's not bad, there's just really not a lot going on here. It's just as you drink it, it just leaves you wanting...it just needs a little bit more." 

Alex 6/10

“This is kind of like a...decent Irish whiskey that you put ice in that has now warmed up [and you've let that ice] melt. It kind of tastes like a watered down Irish whiskey. But, I don't hate it.”

EP 37: The Dead Rabbit

Irish Whiskey

The Dublin Liberties Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff7/10

“For what it is, and the price it has, I enjoy it. It’s a good whiskey. I’d be happy to have it on my shelf."

EP 35: Sazerac Rye

Straight Rye Whiskey

Buffalo Trace Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff9/10

“As the episode went on and the more sips I had...my mouth is telling me, this is pretty damn good. As far as rye's go, this is in the top."

EP 32: Jameson Crested

Triple Distilled Irish Whiskey

Alex:  8.5/10

"That’s really good. I’m really digging it…it’s better than I thought…” 

Matt (Guest):  9/10

“I wouldn’t voluntarily pick this off of a shelf. I’m not even going to continue talking about this."

Small Batch Blended Canadian Whisky

Hiram Walker & Sons Distillery

The Verdict

Geoff:  6.5/10  (Neat) or 8/10 (cocktail mixer)

“It’s good…I can just sense this would be a good mixer. I think like this Canadian Club and a standard bottle of Jameson - I think anybody should have in their liquor cabinet just as something to pull out and make a drink with”. 

 

Alex:  6.5/10

"It’s ’s a totally fine Canadian whiskey, but that’s it….there’s not a lot of big flavours coming at you and the burn comes at a weird time.”

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Ryan (Guest):  6.5/10
