Title for The Whisky: The Whisky


It’s October; It’s Chuck Crouse’s B-Day: To celebrate his 70th birthday (he’s not  old, he’s just even par), I’ve selected 6 of Chuck’s favorite whiskies. Glencadam is da bomb!  I just love this style of whisky, because it has a unique taste and interesting complexity.  Glenlivet Triple Cask Matured is just the half step in strength that we seek in the #2 slot.  Here’s a lovely dram that is currently missing from its core line-up:  Arran 14-Year.  But there’s no need for us to bemoan its absence: I have a bottle.  Glengoyne is a mellow highlander in its 43-46% ABV typical strength. Even so, it is a bit of a beast ‘at source’ (cask strength).  There are so fine cask strength ranges available from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, Signatory, Gordon & MacPhail and, now, Battlehill.  Unlike the former listed companies, Battlehill costs $50 a bottle.  These are young CS whiskies, but they are of fully-matured casks of young whiskies.  We’re going to try Royal Brackla, an awesome 5-year-old offering at 58% ABV.  Let’s top this one with a lovely dram of Port Charlotte. I hope that you can join us and do bring a friend because good whisky is made great when shared among friends.
