Basil Hayden Rye Whiskey Review

May 11 3:00am The Whiskey Reviewer
By Richard Thomas Rating: B- What with Basil Hayden gaining in popularity in recent years, it was inevitable that it would see a brand extension. After all, Knob Creek has seen three such extensions: the 120-proof Single Barrel; the Rye; and the Maple. And because Basil Hayden was the premium high rye expression of Jim ...

The Cu Dhub

May 10 11:04pm The Malt Impostor
These are not tasting notes. These are Notes from the Underground. This dram is a profundity made manifest: it is a liquid form of the argument that there is an irrational pleasure in pain and suffering. And by “pleasure” I don’t mean that we enjoyed it at all. The “pleasure” here is knowing that pain and suffering is necessary to being happy. I’d rather have a toothache and have my liver hurt. But I can assure you, I will never drink enough of this whisky for it to even wake my liver up from a daydream. The tannins overwhelm like crippling ennui. There are aromas of a wet dog, appropriately enough, and of a rotting pine cone stuffed into a sewage pipe I can’t bother to get up off of the sofa to dislodge. These run alongside the smell of mushrooms scraped off a burnt pizza by someone with the vapid industriousness I have transcended or perhaps descended below. The mouth, like life around me, is thin and sour. Has it gone off? Or is it I who has gone off? Or is this a black and red tea steeped with heavy molasses by Sisyphus himself (of course, he never [...]...

An Impostor on Domestic Soil: Stephen visits Westland Distillery

May 6 10:19pm The Malt Impostor
The motto for Westland Distillery in Seattle, Washington is “Thoughtfully Made.” We’ve always found their promotional materials, down to the hamster caskets they send the samples in, to fit this phrase. But as I took the tour of the distillery, I realized that rather than an apt description, “Thoughtfully Made” is actually a wild understatement. You can see the thought put into the place soon after you walk through the door: boards that make up the walls are reclaimed wood, and exposed I-beams from the previous tenant’s days divide and adorn spaces in the bar and tasting room areas. Storage of a small number of barrels lines a meeting hall that Westland uses for hosting events. A display at the other end of that hall showcases the five different malts Westland uses in its typical mash bill: two malted barleys from Washington state (that make up 80\% of the mashbill), two darker malts from the U.K., and an “Extra Special Malt” from Briess, Wisconsin. (Westland wasn’t looking for swing-state action when they picked that Extra Special Malt, but they got it–along with a side helping of Brexit for good measure. They’re fortunate that Washington is a reliably blue state, else [...]...
