This is one of those bourbons that changed my mind about bourbon. Whenever my buddy @bearsandwhisky hosted a whisky tasting, Colonel E.H. Taylor Barrel Proof came out. After a whisky tasting with a dozen different whiskies, it stood out beautifully. Still does. Great pour. Just don't expect it to be gentle

@whistlepigwhiskey Boss Hog is a delicious pour. Decadent pour of whisky that's incredibly well structured. Had but a few drinks of this last year on the farm but wished I had snuck back the bottle for a few more drinks

Speaking with Drew Mayville reminded me of this from a few years ago. Blanton's or not Blanton's? Each single barrel goes through a blind tasting. If even one assigned taster at @buffalotrace decides the profile doesn't fit Blanton's profile, that barrel is rejected. Pictured here are 30+ barre samples. ... #Whisky #whiskey #whiskygram #whiskeygram #instawhisky #instawhiskey #spirits #alcohol #booze #drinks #Blantons #bourbon #buffalotrace @buffalotracedistillery

It's rare that I don't feel envious for our American whisky buying friends, but @jpwisersca has had some incredible Canadian only releases. This one is named after @cdnwhiskydoc's dissertation when getting his whisky PhD! It's friggin terrific. If you live in Ontario or near Ontario or have a buddy in Ontario, procure yourself some bottles ... #whisky #whiskey #whiskygram #whiskeygram #instawhisky #instawhiskey #spirits #alcohol #booze #drinks #canadianwhisky #canada150 #canadianwhisky🇨🇦 #Rye

Hanging out with @bourbonthing means I've been drinking more Rob Roys. The vermouth can't be too sweet; a perfect Rob Roy (equal parts sweet and dry vermouth) probably works best for me but a strong scotch will carry through either way. Balvenie 12 DoubleWood and Glenfiddich 15 make for pretty great Rob Roys ... #whisky #whiskey #whiskygram #whiskeygram #instawhisky #instawhiskey #spirits #alcohol #booze #drinks #glenfiddich #balvenie #thebalvenie #robroy #manhattan

I won't say which friend of which company let me jump on this thing, but there was a good two minutes of fiddling before I got it moving. But oh man the excitement! #idontalwaysdrinkwhisky 🎥: @not_that_nicole

Sometimes The Macallan comes with age statement. I do miss the 12yo up here in Canada. Sweet, dry, sharp with oak spice! Great stuff  #whisky #whiskey #whiskygram #whiskeygram #instawhisky #instawhiskey #spirits #alcohol #booze #drinks #macallan #themacallan #scotch #singlemalt #singlemaltscotch
