Do you support the local distilleries in your area? If so, any stand outs that are worth going after?
Personally, I have purchased many of the Okanagan Spirit releases and have enjoyed them. I also see that many other local distilleries (BC) have whiskies at various stages of maturation and I am looking forward to trying them when available.

I'm hope to go on a tour of Glenora Distillery here in N.S.this fall and pick up a bottle or two. It seems folks are down on their products I hope that I don't have the same experience.

Well I've been to the Glenora Distillery and taken the tour. Before condemning the man that gave the tour I should tell you that it's a beautiful place and well worth visiting if you're in the area.

First of all we were given a sample at the end of the tour which deterred me from buying any whisky in the gift shop. It was not good, not to my taste anyway. A little lemon and hay and.... well not much else. I was very disappointed as this is kind of my home distillery.

The man who gave the tour new how the distillery worked but he made so many outlandish statements about Scottish distilleries and whisky that I laughed out loud a few times. The topper was that Glenlivet has been maturing their whisky in solely Bordeaux barrels for the last 20 years.

The sheep I was with didn't even blink. As I turned to leave I bumped into a man I hadn't noticed who was also suppressing laughter. He told me he was from Scotland (Edinburgh) and actually arranged distillery tours there. He was shocked by what the man had been saying but didn't see the point of correcting him, which was true. What would be the point?

I just paid a visit to my local single malt distillery Lucky Bastard here in Saskatoon. I sampled their "Naked Single Malt" new make. Their first actual single malt whisky release is supposed to be a bottling of two casks that were filled in 2012. Release date unknown, possibly by the end of 2015.
