Beefeater London Dry Gin (47%)
London Dry Gin — EnglandTastedMakes exceptional cocktails. I use in Negronis, Corpse Reviver #2s, Gimlets, and martinis. The slightly higher proof really shines there. I just absolutely love the nose of this gin.
Gordon's London Dry Gin (40%)
London Dry Gin — CanadaTastedReally love the smell of this gin. Makes a great martini as well as other cocktails. If you take into account the price, it is a 5.
Rittenhouse Rye Bottled in Bond
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted4.5. Best eye for the price. Great neat and makes a great cocktail as well.
Ardbeg 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted4.5. Damn, this is really nice. Not too over powering, although I love a real smokey, pleated scotch. Has a dry finish. Going well the cigar I’m smoking.
Dewar's White Label
Blended — ScotlandTasted3.0. Pleasant nose, a decent finish. Little bit of peat. I actually think this shines in a Rob Roy cocktail.
Jack Daniel's Tennessee Straight Rye
Rye — Tennessee, USATasted4.0. I enjoyed this pour. I tried this neat and in a few cocktails. Was on sale so I thought I would try it. Pretty smooth and enjoyable.
Lagavulin 16 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted5.0 just great. The smoke, the peat, the great finish.
Jim Beam Double Oak
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedHas some smoky flavors, but there is just something I don’t really like. Not terrible, but for $17 I guess I can’t complain. Tried in some cocktails, underwhelming .
Powers Gold Label
Blended — IrelandTastedVery nice. My favorite Irish Whisky so far. Oats and honey on nose with a nice finish. Really enjoyed and price is good.
Blended Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTastedFruity and floral. Very enjoyable scotch for a decent price.
