Smokehead Extra Rare
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedLots of sweet briny peat smoke, ends up in sharp burning sweet smoke then drifts away. Made my mouth numb so it can't be that bad. It's okay, a bit tame. Go get Ardbeg instead.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedAh the nose. The taste. This is easily a favourite. Bright and delightful, round honey, seasalt, long dry aftertaste that reminds of black tea, lingers long and joyful. This is one I will truly miss when it's gone.

Sonoma Distilling Company Sonoma Bourbon
Bourbon — California, USATastedQuite nice! Nose: sweet oily wood or leather. Young and sharp but there's a lot of nice taste with sweet pepper, leather and dryness. Different. Short aftertaste, but you feel it. I say yes!
