Single Malt — WalesTasted December 30, 2020Nose: Fruity and light Taste: Mild spice with some pleasant fruitiness, middle of the road oiliness. Lingering oak mouth feel. A decent choice if you're trying to avoid smokey or peaty whiskies.
Highland Park 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandTasted December 30, 2019In my opinion the Highland 12 is a lovely mellow balanced whisky. Because the peat on Orkney is non-woody, the peat in HP12 is not exacerbated by the woodiness of the smoke. More relaxed flavours are given room to express, like grassy heather and subtle honey. It's a great whisky with a good all-rounder balance.
Loch Lomond Original
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasted December 29, 2019Colour: light caramel Nose: Pleasantly Fruity with a light smokiness Taste: Mild chocolatey oakiness to start which gives way to a very fruity mixture of pineapples and coconuts. Seems to me like a cheaper, less well developed but comparable version of the Balvenie Rum Cask.
