    Saw SKU retweet this today:

    Pretty hilarious and sobering at the same time... *sigh*

    The Balvenie Tun 1401 Scotch Whisky

    Buzz Of The Day
    By: Maxim Staff

    Bravo! Go on, and take a Balv.

    Ready for a Scotch that's a tun of fun?



    It's Balvenie Tun 1401 Scotch Whisky: Batch 9!



    The nose of this batch is citrusy, sweet, and smells like vanilla. Oak and honey fill the flavor of this whisky and a strong amount of spice hits you in the mouth.



    A hot tingling sensation lasts on the palate long after you swallow the spirit, so if you're into that sort of thing (you know, burning tingles), then this is the stuff for you.



    But in all seriousness, we love the spicy scotch. It's sophisticated, flavorful, and like many of the great scotches we love, best neat-o.

    Seems like a poor way to talk about a whisky that contains some very old and quite tasty stock and seems to be a great "value", at least compared to whiskys that contain similarly aged product. All that being said... I still laughed

    Unless a supermodel is spouting whiskey from her nipples, I really don't want to get my whiskey news/reviews from Maxim

    Wait, you mean they didn't steer me right with the Jaeger bombs I've been pounding the last couple of years?!

    I end all of my whiskey tastings with jaeger bombs.. Only seems appropriate and it is a fantastic palate cleanser
