A little throwback to back to Thursday night and the IFMA mixer event at @lastbestbrew. I'd heard of Last Best a while ago and was intrigued when I'd heard about last year's @gincrazeyyc experiments. Wish I'd known about it sooner because if sounded exciting. A different gin distilled every week for a year! It's insane! Finally I was presented with the perfect opportunity to check it out. A networking event for my day-job professional association...two birds, one stone. Took a bit to decide which Gin Craze I wanted to try (and believe me, I thought about ordering a flight), but I eventually decided on the Space Coyote. A dry earthiness, contrasted with some bright florals. I got a bit if a licorice/licorice root flavour on the back end. It had a bit of spice to it and was just great all-around sipper. Will have to head back soon, when I have time to sit and experience things a little more.
Ladies Poker Night!
The @plantationrumasiapacific 5yo Barbados. What an absolute all rounder rum. Seriously juicy, balanced and above all delicious. Get it when you find it and if if you are considering returning to the world of Rum #plantationrum is a perfect start. . . . . . . #whisky #whiskey #singlemalt #bourbon #whiskytasting #sydney #thehills #whiskyappreciation #spirits #worldwhisky #whiskyeducation #whiskyambassador #bars #smallbars #sydneysmallbars #sydneyfoodie #cocktails #spiritsevents #dramnation #masterclass #scotchwhisky #events #whiskyevents #tastingbar #caskstrength #rum #rumappreciation
We're more than halfway through #DanielMonth and today was Canada Day! Featuring two distilleries that make Canadian Single Malt: @lohinmckinnon and @glenbretonrare. Sounds like Daniel and Rex enjoyed both of them 😊 They compared Lohin's to an Irish and Glen Breton's Ghleann Dubh to an Islay or other peated Island Scotch. I'd call that pretty high praise on both counts. Check it out on the Whiskey Vault YouTube channel! #PatronSaintOfCanadianWhisky
Incredible first day in Tasmania. First @monamuseum (see my stories), then @moobrewbrewery and @moorillawinery tasting and tour, now Tasmanian whisky (@springbaydistillery @larkdistillery and @belgrovewhisky ) at Lark Bar. Next up @templohobart #festivalofnicole
Had a great lunch today down at @buchananschophouse with a friend. Haven't seen her in a while, so it was great to catch up. Of course, I decided to check out some whisky. I'd decided on the Macadamia Chicken, with creamy mango dressing, and wanted something light and bright to go with it. Not sure why, but I found myself staring at the rather robust list of Balvenie offerings. The waiter recommended the Caribbean Cask (a 14 year old, rum finished malt). Instantly it felt like the exact, right choice. It even came in a Balvenie Glencairn! Tasted great alongside the salad, highlighting the tropical notes of the nuts and mangoes. Delicious!
About to kick off our next Tattersals Club quarterly whisky tasting paired with a selection canapés from the kitchen. Let’s drink!
Finally picked up the @tendeadcrow album a couple of weeks ago. Been listening to it on a loop ever since. Makes me want to crack open some Bourbon and sit out on the back porch, crankin' the honkytonk tunes. It's a gorgeous night in Cowtown and I've been looking for an excuse to open up my Longbranch. What do ya think?
T'was a Hell of a Night! Happy St. Paddy's, Y'all.
Hosting a special Irish Whiskey tasting tonight in honour of St. Patrick's Day! I know that's March 17, but in Ireland it's already tomorrow 💚 Should be a fun night! Great line-up featuring a range of Irish styles from Single Grain to Single Malt to Pot Still and a triple distilled Scotch...just because. . . . . . . . . . #WhiskeySommelier #WhiskyAmbassador #WhiskyYYC #WhiskyGirl #WaterOfLife #DramsComeTrue #WhiskyEducation #Slainte #WhiskyWorks #EnthusiasticEnthusiast #WhiskyTasting #WhiskyCommunity #Instadram #whiskey #whisky #spirits #DrinkLessDrinkBetter #WhiskeyVault #WhiskeyTribe #StPaddys #IrishWhiskey
The inside workings of a grain elevator. This bottle of Lot 40 is sits on the top of 800 MT of rye. Canadian Whisky separates the grains. We cook, ferment, distill, and age each grain separately.

The perfect pre-St. Paddy's Day Friday...a trip to @fionnmaccoolseauclaireyyc for lunch and the chance to sample a tasty Irish Whiskey. I've never had @kinahanswhiskey , and I wasn't exactly there to explore, but it was nice to have something to sip during lunch. It went well with the amazing Shepherd's Pie Yorkies (one of my favourites). Might have to try it again when I can devote more attention to it.
Loving the variations in @benriach single malts getting into our shores at the moment and always a pleasure to be presenting them in our public experiences.
"Cape Bowmore" is always ready to launch tasty spirits 🚀 Est. in 1779 Bowmore is one of Scotland's oldest distilleries. Bowmore is also home to the world's oldest whisky maturation warehouse (~240 years): the No.1 Vaults. Over its long history the distillery has seen many owners. To name just a few: Established by a scottish merchant, John P. Simpson, then passed into ownership of James Mutter who's family was of German descent. Since the mid 90ies Bowmore is ultimately owned by the Japanese distiller Suntory. Also known as Beam Suntory after the takeover of Beam Inc. in 2014 for $13.6 billion. Looking forward to tasting this years Bowmore Feis Ile releases 😋😍 Slainte mhath! ... .. . #whiskyforbeginners #whiskylover #whisky #islay #bowmore #suntory #beamsuntory #whiskyeducation #scotlandtrip #slainte #scotchlover #scotchwhisky @bowmore @suntorywhisky

Checking in on some of the other smaller Irish whiskey brands @westcorkirishwhiskey before #spd The bog cask, port cask, and rum cask are all quite tasty and solid drams but the standard 10 year and barrel proof are outstanding and really shown off the high quality distillation. The peat char barrel is a labor intensive method to develop subtle, complex, smoky flavors and an amazing bottling, if you can find it. #irish #whiskey #barrelproof #westcork #saintpatricksday #whiskyeducation #drinkbetter
Part of the Club.... I had the privilege to speak infront of the Manitoba Club. We also tasted the 2018 Northern Border collection. The Pike Creek 21 Year and JP Wiser’s 35 Year was the Club’s favourite. #whiskyeducation #canadianwhisky #manitoba #jpwisers #lot40caskstrength #pikecreek #gooderhamandworts #rye #whiskyfabric #blendingwhisky @corbysw @jpwisers @lot40 @whiskywhistle @manitobaclubweddings
A while ago I heard tell of a mythical PX Kilchoman bottled exclusively for @kensingtonwm. I think it was @holdmyscotch that posted about it. Sadly, it was a bottle that was long gone from retail...but I got a little lucky. Turns out there were a few minis hanging about, and I managed to snag one back in the fall Needed something to fit my mood tonight, and this sharp little pour is cutting through all the mid-week blues.
On its way on the 3rd April is our Brews & Boilermakers experience at @the_captains_balcony . Priced at $55 we have paired up both @jackdaniels_aus and @woodfordreserve with the delicious and varied @younghenrys brewery. This casual event will have brand ambassadors to speak as well as yours truly in the mix. Educational, informative and relaxed follow the link to book: http://bit.ly/2UlU8SQ

Cheers to these great Whisky Ambassador students in Taiwan whom I've had the pleasure of teaching. The results are back and I'm happy to report all passed and are now officially Certified Whisky Ambassadors! Our next class in Taiwan will be 4/28 in Taichung City. Did you know that Taiwan a country of only 20+ million people at one point was the 4th largest Scotch importer in value in the world? Taiwan is consistently in the top 10. It's one of the biggest and most important Scotch whisky markets. The US is number one and France is number two consistently. The Taiwanese love their whisky and whisky education! #whiskyeducation #whiskyambassador #whiskyscholar #taiwan #taichung #台中 #台灣 . . 🏅📚🏅📚🏅📚🏅 . . #whiskey #whisky #alcohol #spirits #instawhisky #whiskeyporn #whiskyporn #bourbonporn #bourbonwhiskey #bourbon #scotch #whiskygram #whiskeygram #singlemalt #singlemaltwhisky #scotchwhisky #威士忌 #酒 #whiskytime #whiskeylover #whiskylover #imbibe #instawhisky
What else are you going to taste on a Monday mornung but whisky? Lee's thoughts on the delicious Dalwhinnie I've been drinking Dalwhinnie for years and it was very much a 'gateway' whisky for me. Whilst I love the peaty, smoky nonsense (hey Caol Ila, what you doing tonight?) I don't always want to drink that style. Sometimes it's nice to have a gentle and sweet whisky that is a little more playful. Dalwhinnie, from the Gaelic meaning 'place of meetings' was founded in 1898 and is Scotland's highest and coldest distillery. There is a subtle hint of smoke here but this is all about the fruit. For me it's peaches poached in syrup, cinnamon and honey. There's a toffee sweetness alongside heather and cream. So approachable, even at 43%ABV, this is delicious.

Yesterday was a blast! Went to #thescotchwhiskyexperience And tasted #whisky from every region of #scotland The whole experience was very pleasant and educational Oh Yeah, and Scottie had a few as well #scottieduck #ducktastic #whiskyeducation #slightlytipsy #edinburgh
Got asked to do one of them video things for work so I gone done one. It did mean having to open a bottle of whisky on a Friday afternoon...we all do it right?

Finally getting out for some live, local tunes. @thebasebornband CD Release! Sipping some Jamie and getting a dose of some great punk/blues/metal 😎🤘
Made stop at Original Joe's for a cocktail and bite to eat before going home. Tried a Guilt & Honey (made with Bourbon and amaro) and had an order of the tempura shrimp. Great way to finish off an amazing night with friends.
A few final photos from the Lassie's Only Fest. Couldn't recall if I've had the Balvenie Double Wood, so I made a point of giving it a try. Delicate aromas and a round, creamy palate. Tasty cereals with a burst of raisins and dark fruit Made a point of stopping by the Arran table to see what was new. I missed trying the Robbie Burns special edition a while ago, so it was nice to get another chance. It's youthful, but sweet and approachable. The caramel and cereal notes were highlighted by a floral, perfumed fruitiness. The Amarone cask is still my favourite expression, but I did enjoy the Robbie Burns. Stopped by the Scotch Malt Whisky Society table. Their barrel picks are always unique, and I love that they like to have fun with the names. Will be picking up a membership this year. I feel like I need to get a couple of these bottles in my collection. Finally, a shout out to Metro Element. The flower arrangements accented the festival nicely. KWM always throws a good party, but the arrangements were great touch. Thanks and Slainté!
Last night was absolutely fantastic! The Lassie's Only Whisky Fest at @kensingtonwm was as magical as last year. While I always have a good time at the Kensington events, the Lassie's events are a little different. Was great to see all the familiar faces and meet a few new folks. Among the whiskies on offer were a 23 year old Macallan and a 40 year old blended Scotch from Berry's. Both @kwmwhisky exclusives. Not entirely in my wheelhouse, but there is a bit of time travelling magic at hand when dipping into some of these older expressions. The Berry's is older than me, which is a bit to take in while sipping it. Got to try the new Springbank 15. Floral and fruity that was both light and rich on the palate. Another delicious expression from one of my favourite distilleries. Dipped into the Lismore for the first time. Apparently most people were gravitating to the 15 year, but if I had to pick, I'd probably go with the 21. Strong family resemblance, but with more potent flavours and some extra cask influence in the older spirit. Both of these are lower proof, which I don't normally gravitate to, but I was pleasantly surprised at the level of complexity and body. Before finishing up, I had to stop at the Adelphi table. I wanted to check in and see if there were a few things I maybe hadn't tried yet. I was in luck! Got to try a special secret Highland Island single malt bottled as "Breath of the Isles" (pretty sure I could guess the distillery...the spirit was light and floral, and finished with a distinctive Highland Heathered Peat) and an independent bottling of 20 year old Bowmore. The clock was ticking down so I didn't get to make notes, but I may have to look for that one again. It was a little something unexpected. Of course the new E&K (international malt blend) was tasty. Can't recall if I'd had it before, but I liked the first edition (The Kincardine). This is a blend of two Scotches and some Amrut Indian Malt. The world coming together in balance and harmony. As always, @peasantcheese provides a tasty array of charcuterie and cheeses. The food was as much a work of art as it was a treat for the palate. Thanks to everyone for an amazing evening!
Had an amazing night at the second annual @kensingtonwm Lassie's Only Whisky Fest in honour of #internationalwomensday (and supporting the @brendastraffordcentre ). So much thanks to everyone who made this another amazing night out. Ran into some great folks and met some new friends. Will post photos tomorrow, but for now, I'm settling in at home with a bit of 2018 Springbank 12 CS. #Slainte ! #ThereAreNoStrangersInWhisky #OnlyFriendsYouHaventMet

Happy International Women's Day! We thought we'd let The Whisky chick summarise it best: "I’m not naturally a 'balance' type of person, in life, work or whisky… but in the spirit of this year’s IWD #balanceforbetter I’m going to get myself a nice balanced single malt and enjoy a smooth dram. No matter your flavour preferences, whisky (much like life) is great when you step a little out of your comfort zone and try something different, even if your different is a little bit of balance". - Shanti Korporaal - The Whisky Chick @whiskychicksoz . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #whiskychicks #whiskychicklife #womenwhowhisky #womenlovewhisky #whisky #whiskygram #whiskyappreciation #whiskyeducation #realwhisky #whiskytasting #intsawhisky #dram #dramfull #whiskey #internationalwomensday #GoodDrop

After a few months of waiting I finally got my Institute of Brewing and Distilling Certificate for passing the Fundamentals of Distilling. The London based IBD started in 1886 with scientists wanting to learn more about the science behind brewing and malting. I enjoyed the course and would recommend the it to anyone. I took mine online and went to a local testing center to take the proctored exam. There wasn't much online course material besides the syllabus and text book. It's pretty much read and go take the exam. The text was very quality with a lot of information though. My experience with other classes certainly helped a lot in this case. It can be kind of dry since it's a lot of distilling science but it's concise. The large glossary of terms also help a lot and makes it a good reference book. Thanks to @patsychristie for the online flashcards, they were quite helpful! #instituteofbrewinganddistilling #whiskycertified #whiskyscholar #whiskysteward #whiskygeek #whiskynerd #whiskyeducation . . . 前陣子考的蒸餾證照終於收到了。 這是1886年建立的Institute of Brewing and Distilling (英國釀造與蒸餾學院)開的Fundamentals of Distilling(初級蒸餾證照課程)。學院還有很多等級的課程可以上。英文好的朋友們可以上網看看。教材很專業很豐富也可以網上上課,我推薦。 . . https://www.ibd.org.uk/qualifications/examinations/distilling/fundamentals-of-distilling/ . . 📚🏅📚🏅📚🏅📚🏅📚 . . #whiskey #whisky #alcohol #spirits #instawhisky #whiskeyporn #whiskyporn #bourbonporn #bourbonwhiskey #bourbon #scotch #whiskygram #whiskeygram #singlemalt #singlemaltwhisky #scotchwhisky #威士忌 #酒 #whiskytime #whiskeylover #whiskylover #imbibe #instawhisky
There's no whisky without grains and malt.

It's Friday night and the weatherman says it's going to get damned cold overnight. Guess March has decided to come in like a lion! Perfect time to curl up with some whiskey and a movie. How are you escaping the latest blast of winter?
For the last week I've been down with the sickness. Felt I needed a little something to help soothe my sore throat, which means ice cream, of course! Have been eyeing the new boozy inspirations from Häagen-Dazs for the last while and finally decided to give the #WhiskeyChocolateTruffles a try. Overall, nicely balanced with some tasty Bourbon inspired flavours. I'm still more of a chocolate chip cookie dough kind of gal, but cup of hot tea and a little whiskey ice cream is bringing me some comfort tonight.
Exploring the World of Whisk(e)y one bottle at a time, one group of intrepid pioneers tasted 7 different styles of Whisk(e)y, and learned about the essential roles played by barrel, peat, grain, and water. Proud to send them out into the world better prepared to choose their own poison... our Paul John Select Cask Classic 55.2% abv found a special place in their hearts for it’s notes of sweet apple pie and cinnamon spice... #pauljohnwhisky #indiansinglemaltwhisky #goainaglass #goa #tropicalwhisky #whiskyeducation #whiskyexplorer #singlemaltwhisky #followyournose #pauljohnclassic

Ladies Poker Night 😊 . ♠️♥️♦️♣️ . Always a great time, but just that little bit sweeter when you manage to pull a straight on the turn to beat pocket kings and take the night! Felt like something worth celebrating.
Thursday night was a wonderful deep dive into the dark, rich world of everything peat at @kwmwhisky Feis Isle! This was truly a celebration of everything Islay and Islaternative. New takes on classics, the discovery of long lost bottles, and dipping into the past. Not sure I could tell you my favourite. Not even sure I'd even want to try narrowing it down. Lagavulin 16 PX Distiller's Edition Bruichladdich Black Arts 4.1, 5.1, and 6.1 Kornog Côteaux du Layon (wine finished peated malt from France) Bowmore 18 Manzanilla Cask Kilchoman 100% Islay Caol Ila 30 Year SMWS (including at least one that wasn't previously available in Canada) The Whisky Agency Springbank The list goes on and on and on! Was great meeting some new folks and of course seeing all the familiar @kensingtonwm faces. Much thanks to @thescotch_guy , all the staff, the reps, and @peasantcheese for yet another fantastic mini fest. Looking forward to the Lassie's Only Whisky Fest on March 8. Ladies, I believe there are still a few tix. I attended last year and had an amazing time.
#latergram from #thewhiskyagency tasting hosted by @theelysianwhiskybar and @casadevinos ⠀ ⠀ This whisky is from the Speyside Region in Scotland distilled in 1973 (!) 44 years old aged in an ex-Fino Sherry butt (48.6% abv)⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Much older than me but with aromas full of freshness initially - sea breeze, blanched almonds. Also hints of cashew shortbread, fruit mince pie and whipped cream.⠀ ⠀ It had quite a light texture loaded with sweet Christmas spices - nutmeg, clove and orange zest and a hit of salted toffee and fresh whipped cream on the finish.⠀ ⠀ One of the highlights of 2018 for me was to really start understanding spirits. Prior to then I had only tried commercial bottlings - it’s a bit like only ever drinking Pinot Gris but then being given a Burgundy or a Barolo 😄
On recommendation from @timeforwhisky we have headed over to @backyard.jr for cocktail and whisky lunch.

This afternoon I found myself up at @wineandbeyond Sage Hill. Their whisky selection is one of the best in the city and I always enjoy wandering the aisles. Today, I was intrigued by...a beer?! I'm not a beer drinker, but then again, I'm not even sure this would count as beer, in the traditional sense. An ale brewed with maple syrup (apparently this was to increase the sugar to sustain the yeast so they could produce higher alcohol concentrations). Then it was aged in a series of 5 different barrels: Bourbon, Aquavit, White Carcavelos, Ruby Port, and Muscat. Tipping the scales at a hefty 28% ABV, this isn't a beer to throw back on a hot summer's day, this is something to savour on a cold winter's night. As I said, I'm not a beer drinker, but I am intrigued...

The snow has once again started to fall here in Calgary. The perfect night for a ready-made meal. I walked in the house and was greeted with aromas of warmth and home. Turns out a slow cooker pot roast is also the perfect pairing for a gift whisky of @amrutmalt #DoubleCask . The roast recipe was adapted from @altonbrown and includes dark raisins. The Amrut is a blend of ex-Bourbon and ex-PX Sherry casks...undertones of rich raisins and brown sugar. They really do play well together 😊 . It's going to be a good night. I even have a bit ice cream for dessert! MMMmmm...!!! 😋
