Bushmills 10 Year Single Malt
Single Malt — IrelandReviewed April 22, 2023Smooth, honey and malts. A solid Irish whiskey that is a little more refined than your budget labels. Nothing to really shout about, just a solid sipper.
Glen Scotia 8 Year Peated PX Cask Finish (2022 Campbeltown Malts Festival)
Peated Single Malt — Campbeltown , ScotlandReviewed March 4, 2023 (edited April 14, 2023)Feisty one this. Cask strength and 8 years old, this packs a punch 👊 spicy but with plenty of lovely sweetness. A drop of water takes the edge off.Glen Scotia Distillery
Lagavulin Offerman Edition 11 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed February 17, 2023 (edited March 4, 2023)Snapped this up at the distillery shop after a wee sample, far cheaper than expected. Its really smooth. Lighter and fresher compared to the 16. Plenty of smoke and sweet sherry. Really nice 👌
Knob Creek 9 Year Small Batch Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky , USAReviewed January 29, 2023 (edited March 4, 2023)Decent bourbon. Quite a spicy one. Nice sweetness of vanilla and banana. Bit of a char finish. Got something interesting about it, lots to pick out.
Rampur Double Cask Single Malt
Single Malt — IndiaReviewed December 30, 2022 (edited December 31, 2022)Whisky me pouch. Enjoyed this one. A sweet one with a nice mouthfeel. Smooth and creamy, bourbon and Sherry barrels doing their thing.
Rye — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 18, 2022A light, spicy rye whisky. Nice sweet notes of cherry and vanilla. Wood and rye spice. Works well in a cocktail, I enjoyed it mostly neat.
Jim Beam Double Oak
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 15, 2022Sweet vanilla aroma. Heavy on the charred oak in the taste, also the ethanol is very noticeable. It's got some sweet caramel and vanilla hiding in the background, but is all too overpowered by harsh oak. Not one I'd revisit.16.75 GBP per Bottle
Rebel Yell Kentucky Straight Bourbon 100 Proof
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed December 2, 2022 (edited March 4, 2023)I've been drinking a lot of wild turkey 101 recently so thought now was a good time to try a wheated bourbon for comparison. This is definitely smoother and lighter. Lots of creamy sweet vanilla and goes down very nicely. No hint of its 50%! Really enjoyed this whisky me pouch.
Mackmyra Moment Karibien
Single Malt — SwedenReviewed October 31, 2022Only a little sample sized taster, but this was lovely. Sweet rum with a touch of the Sherry notes. Nice bit of spice and heat from the 44%.
