Islay Oloroso Mashup: Bowmore 15 v Kilchoman Sanaig

BOWMORE 15 DARKEST
43% ABV Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry Barrels
46% ABV Bourbon and Oloroso Sherry Barrels

Chill-Filtering (What Is It & Why Do It?) plus Four Roses meets Jack Daniel's
Recently, a whisky reviewer named Ralfy posted a YouTube video where he mentioned that in Scotland, GlenDronach (now owned by Brown-Forman of Jack Daniel's and Old Forester fame) had removed the words "Natural Colour" and "Non-Chill Filtered" from the tin that contains the whisky.
Whiskey Comparison: High Proof Bourbon including Elijah Craig B520 and C290
Time to do some high proof tasting. Thanks to my Instagram buddy Todd Ritter (a great fan of the show) I had the opportunity to blind taste 5 different bourbons. All were great, one blew me away.
Texas Whisk(e)y Comparison: Ironroot Harbinger 115 vs Balcones Blue Corn
The tale of two Texas whiskey's. No, these aren't a perfect match - Balcones is 46% ABV and Ironroot Harbinger 115 is 57.5% ABV but both are corn forward whiskeys created in pot stills (one a Kentucky pot still, the other from Speyside Scotland). But my main objective was to give you an idea of the diversity of spirits coming out of the Lone Star State.
Whisk(e)y Comparison: Dalmore 12 v Beam Suntory Legent
For having said I wanted to avoid putting a bourbon vs a scotch, it seems that Beam Suntory teased me into trying it out - since they were so willing to collaborate between Japan and Kentucky. And Dalmore 12 seemed like an interesting scotch to pair it up with.
