    Chocolate granola. Like the kind gram gram used to make.

    Oily prune with a bite. I like. Love is much too strong for this.

    I can see the vanilla, but no fruit. For flora, try grains, specifically wheat. Very unremarkable.
  4. Cragganmore Distillers Edition

    Once again Cragganmore: bravo! Lucky enough to try this: the distiller’s edition adds maturity to the fruit and darkens the floratic flavors overall. Like the snake in the Garden of Eden, opens my eyes to the darkness I didn’t realize I wanted, nay needed!

    Leading note/spice: wild blend of cardamom and clove. Undercurrent of corn sweetness. Will become a regular on my shelf.

    The old familiar Irish twang coupled with a floral bouquet. Not quite the price darling, but quite cool nonetheless.

    I don’t know where this got its reputation. One note: harsh.

    Weird mix of weaker peat smoke and sweeter fruit, as if dried. If you prefer darker flavor go here, otherwise go Oban.

    Mildly interesting hybrid of smoke and sweet. Like a campfire of sandalwood. Or perhaps roasted prunes/dates.

    Lauded by the late, great Michael Jackson for complexity, this dram does not disappoint. The quintessential light Scotch, a complex blend of herbal, floral, grassy, and fruity. Alcohol burn but no smoke, if you wanted that, go maritime. I’ll enjoy this mellow pastoral ode.
