  1. Glenfarclas 21 Year

    Enjoyed this on a Friday evening with my sweetie. You can absolutely tell this is a 21 year - so smooth. Sweet and a little vanilla, easy finish. But I hate to say, a little bit lacking in flavor. Sometimes these 15+ bottles lack punch and maybe that’s what happened here. Still it’s a special bottle and I am forever a fan of the Farclas!

    This was a tasty and sweet rye that won our monthly whiskey club taste test. @sscheck

    It’s pretty good and doesn’t deserve the 83 from Distiller. This 14 earns its 3.5 stars from me by being tasty and a tiny bit smoky. Nice for any Saturday night.
  4. Paul John Peated Select Cask Single Malt

    A solid 3.5 star performer, it will do in a pinch and it’s enjoyable too, but not a rock star. Kind of one dimensional, a little figgy and sometimes too sweet. Still I’ll finish the bottle, since my brother left it here the other night.
  5. Nikka Taketsuru Pure Malt

    Peated Blended Malt — Japan

    Y’know, it’s not as bad as I once remembered. Really it’s just a nice whiskey without a lot going on. Simple one note and not much to follow. A little sweet maybe. I’ll hit this bottle rarely.

    I’m not a big bourbon guy, I prefer scotch, but I really enjoy this bourbon. It’s slick and sweet, yummy and fun on a Tuesday after dinner. PS after having a bit more of this deliciousness, I have upped my rating to 4.0 stars. Yum.

    Yeah the weak reviews here are unfortunately accurate. Not really peat and just not really enjoyable. Had this at my monthly scotch tasting.

    This is a better bourbon. Very smooth, almost syrupy and sweet with vanilla and caramel. I enjoyed this with my wife and son on a quiet stay-at-home Saturday night.
