Plank  Yes, it's my whiskey, and also my fence post.

Did a little gin throwdown the other day, and as sad as I was to see something beat the #botanistgin the @castleandkey London dry gin may be my new reigning champ. The higher proof and rye mashbill left it dryer than most and really let's the ginger and rosemary linger. The coriander isnt overwhelming and the juniper appears on the nose only. This is a strong first release from castle and key and I'm glad to have gotten my hands on a bottle from batch one. Looking forward to their ages spirits in the future. #whiskeyonafencepost #ginonafencepost #gin #castleandkey #craft #craftspirits #ginseason #itshotoutthere #madeinthebluegrass #kentuckycraft #kentuckyproud #highproof #bottleporn #madeinkentucky

Don't worry baby, I'll never let the bad men take you out of Kentucky again. This little guy would have had to travel over 6,000 miles to get to the shop I grabbed it in kyoto, and then the 6,000 miles back to just down the road from where it was made. Japan still gets these age stated wild turkeys regularly, while those of us in kentucky have to travel around the globe to get a chance at them. It's nice to be home in the bluegrass. #bourbontrail #bourbon #whiskeyonafencepost #gobble #austinnichols #wildturkey #bourbon #campari #bourbondrinker #americanwhiskey #madeinamerica #madeinthebluegrass #myoldkentuckyhome #goodwhiskey #barrelselect #not101 #feeltheburn #itkeepsmewarm #happyjuice #whiskeywithaview #whiskeyporn #bottleporn #instawhiskey #wildturkey13 #barrelproof #le

How about a Japanese whisky on a fencepost in kyoto Japan? That's right, grumpy old post is in Japan. The hibiki 17 was unfortunately discontinued recently but I came across this bottle in a little shop in Osaka where a clever shop owner convinced me I couldnt survive without it. The hibiki are always a little mellow for someone like me that loves brash barrel proof whiskies. Honey and flowers is generally how i describe these. A light smoke is present on the younger version on the finish only, so we'll see when I get home if its here at age. #japanesewhisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyporn #whiskeyonafencepost #kyoto #japan #hibiki #hibiki17 #suntory #forrelaxingtimes #oldwhisky #goodwhisky #goodbooze #illdrinkitinkentucky #almosthome #bottleporn #whiskytanuki

Am I the only drunk that drools thinking about bottles waiting for you at home? Got this bad boy in a trade about 6 months ago but have been out of the US since. Now that my trip is coming to an end this bottle is haunting my dreams! #madeinscotland #highlandscotch #highlandwhisky #singlemalt #scotch #scotchwhisky #goodwhisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #bottleporn #whiskeydrinker #whiskyporn #finespirits #macallan

Insert terrible Austin powers joke here. Although I didn't love kelpie, I normally enjoy the ardbeg annual feis ile release. Doubly so, when I'm lucky enough to try the committee releases at their proper proof. This year is no exception, and may even be the best in years. The only way I can describe this is the caramel sauce on salty buttered popcorn you get in some theaters, paired with a side of a well smoked brisket. Its savory with just the right sweetness, and really just a great whisky all around. #madeinscotland #madeinislay #islayscotch #islaywhisky #singlemalt #butidrankitinkentucky #scotch #scotchwhisky #peat #goodwhisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #bottleporn #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeydrinker #whiskyporn #finespirits #ardbeg #ardbeggrooves #warmthebones #groovy #feisile #feisile2018 #committeerelease

Brought something a little different with me to Korea this time. Mezcal isnt talked about as much as other spirits, but it's really worth exploring. The different types of agave drastically effect the flavor, much like the grape does a wine. The smoke varies from earthy and dry to rich and meaty like a good brisket. This mezcal marca negra made with espadin (somewhat common cultivated species) has the overwhelming flavors of stone fruit and mint, and I love it. Its oily and coats the mouth with flavors of rich charred red meat. #whiskeyonafencepost #geoje #southkorea #mezcal #madeinmexico #okpo #bottleporn #mezcalmarcanegra #espadin #highproof #goodbooze #neat #mezcalwithaview #mezcalonafencepost #nottequila #handmade #oaxaca

A lot of people were weird about this when it came out. Tons of low reviews and general complaining, all about how it wasn't the exact same whisky as the old cask strength. What they weren't doing though is stopping and just exploring this whisky for what it is, a spicy and interesting cask strength single malt from Macallan. Ginger is the big note here, with that nice lingering bite that you would expect from a single malt of this proof. Is it the same whisky as the old cask strength? No. But, macallan never said it was. #madeinscotland #highlandscotch #highlandwhisky #singlemalt #scotch #scotchwhisky #goodwhisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #bottleporn #whiskeydrinker #whiskyporn #finespirits #macallan

I always love trying single malts that usually end up in blends. Glenturret is a single malt that generally ends up in famous grouse, which I will admit is not a favorite of mine, but this wasn't half bad. I found it raiding my family's liquor cabinet it California, which is where this picture was taken. I was pleasantly surprised by this. It's definitely a little thin, but maybe that would improve at cask strength. The peat was mild, still tasted to have some fruit influence that I would normally attribute to sherry but I can't confirm if they use bourbon or sherry barrels there. If give it like a 6.5 out of 10, but it reminded me to always just try things. #madeinscotland #madeinedison #highlandscotch #highlandwhisky #singlemalt #butidrankitincalifornia #scotch #scotchwhisky #goodwhisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #bottleporn #whiskeydrinker #drinkyourwhisky #yorbalinda #bottomsup

Who doesn't love a cask strength non colored/non chill filtered independent bottling of Caol Ila? When you type it all, the scotch community really does sound pretentious doesn't It? Not that I care because this is delicious. Usually used in #diageo blends, the Caol Ila is distilled on Islay then shipped in to the mainland for aging. I usually get a lot less brine on these, but what was astonishing was how much less peat there was on this than the standard 12 I know and love. There's a lot spring flowers/honey to the nose, but then it's just a nice soft peat on the palate. Honestly, this one is going to take me a while to pick more out of. It's very subdued (in a good way) and I look forward to getting to know this bottle better #caolila #caolila20 #singlemalt #madeinscotland #madeinislay #scotch #scotchwhisky #singlemaltscotch #whisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #drinkyourwhisky #goodwhisky #allwhiskydeserveslove #whiskyporn #adrattray #independentbottling #caskstrenth

My whole interest in whisky actually started to spite my father in law. He made some comment about how I didn't have any scotch and it rubbed me the wrong way. After that I went out to buy one of every variety and then test him next time he came over to show how little he knew. Well, many years later I'm fully obsessed, but I just recently finally grabbed a Campbellstown whisky. Now I'm also hooked on that. This @springbankwhisky1828 was viscous and rich, tons of spice and a nice smoke that reminds me almost of the barrel char from bourbon. Really great whisky at barrel proof. #whiskynotwhiskey #whisky #singlemalt #barley #caskstrength #scotch #scotchwhisky #whiskeywithaview #whiskeyonafencepost #bottleporn #goodwhisky #drinkyourwhiskey #homesick #campbeltown #madeincampbeltown #southscotland #madeinscotland #whiskyporn #barrelproof

Well, I'm back in Korea for a few months this time. Sorry about the lack of post lately but I've got some fun ones I took before I left to share. I figured the best way to deal with being away from my whisky is to get a good all around bottle to enjoy . The Macallan 18 is the perfect whisky for this. Mac is always a rich floral whisky, and you get the same rose water on this as you do the younger expression, but with the age you also get the spice. Chocolate nibs, stone fruits, and almost a grassy note balances the sherry and vanilla. Really just a wonderful single malt. #madeinscotland #highlandscotch #highlandwhisky #singlemalt #butidrankitinkorea #scotch #scotchwhisky #goodwhisky #whiskynotwhiskey #whiskeyonafencepost #bottleporn #whiskeydrinker #whiskyporn #finespirits #warmthebones #babyitscoldoutside #macallan

Sometimes you just have to try something new. Yesterday I was in Ohio and saw this OYO oloroso wheat double cask. I had heard good things about OYO's whiskies, but just hadn't grabbed one yet. Well I cracked it open last night, and have to say, I'm impressed. Good strong green apple notes that are pretty normal for wheat whiskies, but then that rich, lush, oily finish, and strong, dark stone fruits that is quintessential sherry. A slight tingle from the proof and a warming vanilla are the send off on this one. Cheers @middlewestspirits you did good. #whiskeywithaview #whiskeyonafencepost #whiskey #wheatwhiskey #sherry #sherryfinish #americanwhiskey #madeinohio #ohio #columbus #doublecask #oyo #oyowhiskey #bournfound #rainydaydrinking #drinkyourwhiskey #bottleporn #whiskeyporn
