This is Compass Box's 'Peatiest Dram Yet' (Damn Right) this Whisky is an absolute beast, 75.5% of this liquid is from Ardbeg (one of my personal favourites) and it really comes through.

Ardbeg An Oa
Ardbeg An Oa

I'm a big fan of Ardbeg distillery, Ardbeg 10 year was the first 'heavily' peated whisky I had tried many moons ago (well I thought it was the smokiest thing I had ever tasted at that point) so Ardbeg holds a special place in my heart.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye
Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye

We use Woodford Reserve Straight Rye as our house pour rye for the last year or so, it’s got a decent back bone and stands up in classic rye based cocktails, but I have never got really into it in depth straight up as I always use it for mixing, so this should be interesting.

Few Rye

As a brand Few are extremely trendy, with cool branding and a great backstory.

I was lucky enough to try Jack Daniels single barrel Rye for the first time a few months ago, it's the first new mash recipe since 1866 (Mind Blown!), I was quite surprised to hear that Jack Daniels was getting involved in the rye boom!
