Spot Offer #115: Glenfarclas 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
95/100 Points: “An incredible dram from Glenfarclas, we can’t say enough about it. It’s a juicy, Christmas cake of a whisky, absolutely huge! This 15 year old matured in sherry wood, a superb malt which earned 95 points from Jim Murray. A lot of the whisky in this is clearly much older than 15 years, this is a really sherried dram and we love it.”

Wine of the Week #1536: The Ultimate Noodle Wine – Under $13!
90/100 Points (Gord Stimmell – Toronto Star) “Some Gewürztraminers are over the top with screaming lychee and rose petals. But this, while full of subtle floral notes, seduces the palate with slightly sweet complexity. Joseph Drathen 2013 Gewürztraminer Kabinett: Honeydew melon, mild lychee nut, honeycomb and lime sorbet aromas tantalize, while off-dry flavours dish up jasmine, clover blossom and quince with a lemon tart finish.”
