Octomore 07.4/167 Virgin Oak
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedPeaty yet floral on the nose. Nutty almond and toffee on the palate. There she is - that punch in the guts Octomore mega peat - the heart burning power packed punch to finish. I imagine this is how Thanos felt when he clicked his index finger and thumb with the Infinity Gauntlet.
Highland Park 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandTastedSweet malted honey on the nose. Strong hint of lemon zest on the palate and over-ripened sweet banana. Subtle light yet heartwarming smokey peaty finish.
Hibiki Japanese Harmony
Blended — JapanTastedWow. The most creamy, vanilla, floral nose. So smooth on the palate - whilst floral and vanilla bean-esque such an impressive balanced dram. Like the whisky version of a dessert wine. Impressed with this "harmony" of a blend.

Laphroaig An Cuan Mór
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedMy new favourite Laphroiag. A nose to die for - so much like Ardbeg Uigeadail. Mega punch of peat to the nose. Citrus-boiled candy on the palate with a gentle drawn out dry smokey finish.

Bakery Hill Cask Strength Classic Single Malt
Single Malt — Victoria, AustraliaTastedNow here is the best from the distillery in Bayswater. A nose to die for - amplified rich honey-glazed sultanas and dried apricots. Continues with such an oily palate not dissimilar to Redbreast Cask Strength. Much more refined, bold intense appley pear palate than its standard strength bottling. And the finish? Long. Drawn out. Heart warming ripe banana and toffee apple finish. For a Peat-lover/non-Speyside drinker to say this... kudos to you, Bakery Hill.
