Still my favorite
Woodford Reserve Straight Rye
Rye — Kentucky, USATastedNot too mashy. Clean, smooth, fruit but not too sweet.
Ron Zacapa 23 Sistema Solera Rum
Aged Rum — GuatemalaTastednot a fan of rum enough to appreciate how good I was told this is....but it's good. still rather scotch.
Glenfiddich 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTastedsimple. fruity and vanilla. no finish whatsoever.
Single Malt — Highland, ScotlandTastednot bad but nothing special. raisins, vanilla, a swish of salty sea, burning melon finish. not worth ever drinking again.
Rye — Illinois, USATastedit's ok....nose is harsh but I get the mash sweetness. taste is fruity, honey, middle eastern spices...wood...hot finish that is not as enjoyable. hints of creamy coffee lingers on my tongue after the burn. too harsh to find depth though, which is unfortunate.
Bourbon — USATastedno depth. some honey and fruit but empty and thin. bad finish with a lack of years and a tad too much heat.
Bruichladdich The Classic Laddie Scottish Barley
Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedhot upfront...vanilla, honey... exhale of honeysuckle flowers...orange blossom and cereal or malt. less salt and smoke than expected from the region. overall, a good one. bite sits on the back of the tongue as does an almost sweet tomato sauce breath.
one of the best I've ever tasted. the nose is vanilla, toffee, and peach. draws you in right away. tastes like melted vanilla ice cream, raisins, and pudding. a puff of smoke keeps you balanced. bites just enough at the end. well balanced, deep, rich, finish. I'd buy a bottle of this again to keep around for special occasions, or a nightly sipper in the rotation.130.0 USD per Bottle
The Macallan 18 Year Sherry Oak Cask
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasteddefinitely taste the sherry. fig and bread or muffin. oaky but more smoke barrel. fruity but not sweet. smooth. the finish stays with you awhile. sadly, at the price, I'd never buy a bottle again, but this is very good. just not worth paying that much when there are equally as good - or better - bottles out there at $100 or more below this price.239.0 USD per Bottle
