SVS : Glendronach 12 vs anCnoc 12

It’s been a little while since we had a Scotch versus Scotch so today we’re going pit a couple of beginner friendly twelve year olds against each other and see who comes out on top. We’ve got the PX & Oloroso sherry cask finished Glendronach 12 that wears a burnt orange hue next to the…

A few more OMWs…

Happy Whisky Wednesday fellow Whisky lovers! New youtube videos are coming soon! And no, I don’t mean the One Minute Whisky videos (which I’ll post more of below). I mean real, hosted, Scotch N Sniff videos! I’m teaming up with Whiskey Library DC to help host a new slew of topics that should be entertaining…

One Minute Whiskies?

One Minute Whiskies is a small side project that will fall under the ScotchNSniff umbrella of fun stuff 🙂 If you haven’t subscribed to the SNS youtube channel or follow the ScotchNSniff instagram, you might want to.

Wait, a rye from Baltimore? There are a handful of articles out there about this new local hooch and how it’s sourced from MGP but the water used to bring it to proof is actually retrieved from a spring at the actual Sagamore Farm but that’s not what we’re going to talk about today. As…

Scotch for bourbon lovers? Definitely!
