Bottle down! This @compassboxwhiskyco release was (as you can tell) quite delicious. However "The General" is still my all time favorite! What's your favorite Compass Box pour?

Happy "World Whisky Day"!
@dlaingwhisky has long been known as an award winning independent bottler. The family run and owned company has purchased and bottled an incredible selection of single malts from various distilleries all over Scotland. As the whisky craze continues to spread around the globe, many independent bottling companies are finding it more difficult to purchase barrels with higher age statements as distilleries struggle to keep up with demand. Enter, the Master Blender. Often left in the shadows, a blender’s job is to do precisely what his job title states. Blend whisky together in order to keep a consistent taste profile within the company’s core range (be it single malts from one distillery or a blend of scotch whisky from various distilleries). In this day and age however, companies are quickly switching to the pure malt form of blending. This eliminates grain scotch whisky from the blend which allows the Master Blender to rely on single malt scotch as the sole component in the expression. Over the past few years Douglas Laing @remarkable_malts as released a very interesting lineup of blended malt whisky, each of which focuses on a specific region of Scotland. “Rock Oyster” focused on the Island region, “Timorous Beastie” on the Highlands, “Big Peat” is sourced from Islay and “The Epicurean” which is a blend of Lowland malts. Today we’ll be focusing on “Scallywag”, a blend focusing on arguably the most famous of Scotland’s regions, Speyside. Scallywag is a blend of single malts from distilleries such as Macallan, Glenrothes and Mortlach. Scallywag is non chill-filtered, natural color and bottled at 46% ABV. The nose is predominantly defined by the sherry influence and is rich a sweet with dark fruit notes and honey. The palate has a bit more bourbon cask influence with lighter fruit notes, oak, orange and some baking spice. The finish is medium and length with a nice dark chocolate note to round it all out. I think this would be a great scotch for someone who is looking to segue from blended scotch to single malt! Or as a gift to any Speyside scotch drinker who has a dog. *sample provided. all views are my own

Whenever I get stressed out I grab my camera, a glass, a bottle of whisky and my pup and head out into the woods to hike. Being in nature away from the concrete, the wires and the hustle and bustle of human existence has always been my therapy: But the fateful day that I decided to, on a whim, bring a bottle of whisky with me to photograph whilst hiking made my therapeutic activity a passion. Other than meeting and sharing drams with fellow enthusiasts, one of my favorite things in the world is when someone tells me they were inspired by my work to go out in nature and appreciate it more. It's even better when they bring a bottle of whisky and snap some photos. I absolutely love being tagged and seeing everyone's photos of whisky from around the world in amazing locations. It inspires me to keep going and to improve my craft seeing as there are photographers out there far more talented than myself producing incredible photos of their favorite spirit. So this glass is for all of you and to the amazing community that whisky has created. Cheers and happy "Whisky Wednesday"!

A year ago my buddy @will_the_whiskey_man was gracious enough to sell me 2 of these bottles at cost after he found a few on the shelf in Florida! The first bottle vanished at an alarming rate so I've been holding off on cracking this one until a special occasion. I have failed in this mission since I opened this today purely because I had a hankering to drink it and, because, Tuesday I guess. This discontinued bottling of @jeffersonsbourbon 10 Year Straight 100% Rye Whisky was sourced from Alberta, Canada and is absolutely delicious. Many people assume that a 100% rye mashbill would create a very spicy and bitter profile (which can indeed be the case), but when aged long enough and attentively, it can transform into an incredible balance of sweet and spice. This whisky is like drinking a Christmas gingersnap cookie. Notes cinnamon, cardamom, ginger orange peel, vanilla, cherry and oak integrate perfectly to create a phenomenal sipper that I can only pray will come back to market one day!
