NB Spirits Festival Update

I am pleased to report the NB Spirits Festival product list is now available for viewing on line. Please visit the Festival's web page for all the details. www.raiseyourspirits.ca  The Festival has an amazing selection of whiskies, rums and spirits to please everyone.

I have been pouring over the list on what to purchase this year. It has made for some very tough decesions. I definitely plan to pick up a bottle of the special Festival bottlings from Hart Bros and Balblair. The Hart Bros bottling is 15 year old blended malt finished in a Port wood pipe. It has been bottled at 50% abv. A wonderful nose and mouth feel. The Balblair was distilled in 1997. It is from the very last cask of the 97 distillation. It has been  bottled at cask strength. I look forwad to sampling this one on the night of the festival.

More coming soon...

                          Whisky For the Holidays

Every year I am asked to recommend a whisky as a gift for a Christmas present. Not as easy as it sounds as everyone has different tastes when it comes to Whisky. Not always knowing if someone appreciates a whisky with smoke, peat, sherry, vanilla, etc  can be challenging to make a recommendation they might like in the end. If you have a rought idea of what they like now can be a big help in deciding what to select. The price point you can afford always comes into play for most of us. So that said here are a few of my recommendations and price points. Single Malt under $50.00 in NB It is not easy anymore but I like Aberlour 10, Aberfeldy 12 and Strathisla 12. They are all very good whiskies for the price.
