Wild Turkey Bourbon 101
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 7, 2021Very nice, bold, powerful, soft spice, rye, oak, nice dryness. High ABV, complex, good enough any day of the week. Personal favourite available bourbon together with Four Roses small batch.
Tullamore D.E.W. Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandTasted March 3, 2021Similar to Jameson, I like it! Bright and light, clean, fresh, a tad sweeter, caramel, vanilla, a tiny bit softer, some bitterness. Subtle and easy drinkin'.
Caol Ila 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted February 27, 2021Delicate, fresh, sweet, light citrus sour wet moss fire smoke. Subtle! Nature, ocean, fruity sweet, round, balanced, mild, super kind, very nice.
Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Select
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATasted December 4, 2020Yes, thank you very much! I enjoy Old No 7 pretty much. This one is same just slightly deeper, calmer, drier, a little more focused. Less spirit and bubble gum, more leathery or toasted oak. Tobacco, old books and wild west. Nice spicy aftertaste. Where I live, the price difference is not that much, then it’s a no-brainer. Otherwise, the No 7 is just fine. It is not Lagavulin level stuff but I’ll definitely buy again. What a nice experience!
Glenfiddich 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted December 1, 2020Mild, sugar sweet, soothing and super safe. Soft earthiness. Nothing to dislike. Round, nothing sticks out. Nice entry level 40 ABV single malts, a bit dull and thin, easily gone.
Chivas Regal 12 Year
Peated Blend — ScotlandTasted October 9, 2020More enjoyable than I thought. Almost nothing wrong with it. Pleasant, light, clean, mild, fresh fruit, spirit, yet balanced. Reminds of irish grain. Soft and happy. Nothing to seek out but great as a baseline blend. Good for what it is.
The Ileach Peaty
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted October 2, 2020Soft, sweet, dull, damp smoke covers everything. Smooth, shallow, gone in a swift. Half an hour in the glass and a few drops of water and it is not bad. Okay.
Evan Williams White Label Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted September 24, 2020Great value. Nice, full, rich, sirupy, fresh oak, cinnamon, baking spice. Powerful, great ABV, warm and with oak hanging around. At this price, almost perfect. Wow!
Loch Lomond 18 Year
Single Malt — Highlands , ScotlandTasted August 28, 2020Sweet and confectionary. Sweet vanilla, caramel, wet wood, yet fresh and forward. Feels basic, for an 18 year old, but quite all right!
Loch Lomond 12 Year
Single Malt — Highlands , ScotlandTasted August 28, 2020Sweet confectionary. Sweet vanilla, caramel, wet wood, yet fresh and forward. Feels basic but quite all right! Also tasted the 15 year old that was no fun and not better than the 12 year old. The 12 year old is the sweet spot when it comes to value.
