Orach Strawberry Vanilla Ginger Beer RTD Cocktail
We've all seen a huge amount of new RTD (Ready to drink) cocktails in the shops so why not a whisky based one and that's what this Orach, from the same guys behind Dram Orach, believe too.

Turning Strangers Into Friends With Jameson
As a whisky blogger every now and again I'm lucky enough to be invited to the occasional Press Trip which generally up until very recently a lot of them I've had to say thanks but no thanks to due to work shifts and the notice given, however when I was invited recently to spend St Patricks Day in Dublin with Jameson's Irish Whiskey it fell at just the right time and I was able to attend in the week between changing jobs.

Balbair 1960s Bottling
After the last review (The Golden Age Blend) which talks about the 1960's-1970's being the golden age of distilling it's time to try this sample of a Balbair bottled in the 1960s sent to me by my good friend Chris (@chrismiles303) from Still Dramming.

The Golden Age Blend
The Golden Age Blend is an extraordinary whisky, harking back to the 'Golden Age' of distilling from the early 1960s to the mid 1970s, being made exclusively with whiskies that are at least 40 years old. Malts from Macallan, Glenrothes and Tamdhu are used, along with a little peated Bunnahabhain to add the 'seasoning'.

Octomore 7.4
I've had a number of Octomore drams in the past including one straight from the cask at Bruichladdich, which was also from Virgin Oak, but I was just enjoying it and didn't take notes so interesting to try this .4 version which is matured in virgin oak.
