    Having a dram on a random Wednesday evening, the first sip is like getting smacked with a 2x4, very woody. This is a lush Islay and suitable for your random Wednesday, too. Cheers!

    I'm between 3.75 and a 4.0 on this one. Interesting that the 'professional' ratings are usually lower than user ratings for this Balvenie. And I can see why. It's a little sweet, lush and almost creamy. It's yummy, fun to drink. Also, I think fairly priced for a 17. Enjoy! 🥃🥃🥃

    Delicious and my new favorite (for now). Smooth and noticeably better than other bourbons at this price point ($90-$100) and I think it beats the Bardstown #4 by a hair and that bottle is $50 more. Not too sweet. Just right.

    Delicious, almost chocolatey and definitely a rich bourbon. My brother gave me this bottle for my birthday and I'm glad he did. I think The Honorable High 'n' Wicked might edge this out as my favorite (for now), but this Bardstown is great stuff and in my top 3.

    I love this one. Its distinctive without being just super sweet. I compare it to Widow Jane 10 and I think this is a little better. Buy it.

    Just delicious. I call this the "gateway drug to Islay" because it gets you warmed up for a Laphroig or Ardbeg. But don't make the mistake of drinking Laphroig first as you won't even taste this one. However, if you start your evening with this fine bottle (or follow up your afternoon bourbon with it as I did), it's really special. Sweet and subtle, smoky and rich but in a light way if that makes sense. Anyway - cheers!

    This is a nice, well rounded scotch that is hard not to enjoy. I was going to give it 3.75, but i added .25 because it's such a smooth diversion and my father-in-law, a scotch novice, loved it.

    I'm having this delicious Glenfarclas again (mid-week). I see I tasted this and posted a mercifully short review just last year. It's still delicious and, y'know what? I think the 17 is better than the 21. There I said it. Cheers!

    This is a distinctive bourbon. It's rich and delicious, and the 126 proof is actually a treat (as long as it's on the rocks). I've gone through about half the bottle and took some extra time to decide - this shit is great. Not really an every day bourbon, but why not. At this price range I would compare to the Widow Jane 10, about the same price and both are favorites. Discovered this thanks to Blackwell's in San Francisco, their weekly email is great. 🥃🥃🥃

    I was expecting to be disappointed, I was expecting 3 bottles of similarly tasting scotch that wouldn't impress a scotch snob like me. I was very wrong. Each one was different and delicious. No cask info but we think we've got it figured out (I should say, my brother has it figured out). Taste them in order and enjoy.
