Aberlour 16 Year Double Cask Matured
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedI had this bottle as well as Aberlour 10 and 12 years in a tasting. All ages are solid and very consistent with each age being slightly better than the last.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve
Peated Blend — ScotlandTastedThis bottling has quite a bit of peat so for me, it's not my style.
Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandTastedI’m not a big fan of Irish whiskies, but this was pretty good. The rum finish helps smooth out the rough edges of the whiskey. I felt the same way about the original Glenmorangie 10, not the biggest fan of their standard bottling, but when trying their cask finished bottlings they really helped with the overall flavor.21.0 USD per Bottle
Blended — JapanTastedThis is probably the worst Japanese whisky I have tried. Extremely bland with very little flavor beyond straight malt alcohol taste. Luckily it was on my brother’s bar and had to pay nothing to try it.

A.D. Laws Four Grain Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon — Colorado, USATastedThe bottle I actual had was the bottle in bond four grain, but unfortunately Distiller doesn't have it in their archive and I wasn't able to take a picture of the bottle! I will first say that i was a Big fan of the E.H. Taylor four grain bourbon and since I won't pay $700 for secondary prices i though I would try this AD Laws bottle at the Whiskey House in San Diego. Overall I will say this is a pretty darn good substitution and all the grains mingle very well with each other. I like the four grain because it isn't your typical bourbon profile so if you like whiskey that a little different i would recommend this one.12.0 USD per Pour
Balcones Baby Blue
Corn — Texas, USATastedBananas and butterscotch on the nose and relatively soft on the palate. This pretty tasty considering it’s a 100% corn whisky5.0 USD per Pour
