Jim Beam Original
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 12, 2018Nose is good, light, sweet, flowery almost perfume, too much. It is okay, but the extra aged black label is so much better, calmed down, warmer, oak, sweet spiciness and really good.
J.P. Wiser’s 10 Year Triple Barrel
Canadian — Ontario, CanadaTasted October 12, 2018Methylated spirit with soft plum and expired fruits. Maybe something wrong with my bottle. Pretty bad.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted October 6, 2018Subtle, fresh, vanilla. Some spice, high rye, fresh and nice, not too sweet at all. Good finish with oak, warmth, kind of luqourice in the back.
Jim Beam Black Label Extra-Aged
Bourbon — Kentucky , USATasted October 3, 2018Very nice! Warm, oak, friendly, still got an edge from oak and rye similar to Wild Turkey 101, just more smooth and friendly.
Nikka Whisky From the Barrel
Blended — JapanTasted September 28, 2018Needs time and attention. First nose is spirity fruity plum, then calms down, deep warm notes of oily wood, bourbon, fruits, sweets. Delicious, full, rich, velvety. Fireworks in the back of my head. Very nice.
Jack Daniel's Gentleman Jack
Tennessee — Tennessee, USATasted September 22, 2018Old no 7 made smoother, calmer, less vibrant. Makes the banana cake and wood come forward and spirit to the back. Less vibrant but it suits the banana cake feeling quite well. A good dram.
Ardbeg 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted September 21, 2018Favourite go to reasonably priced accessible peated delight. Nose is lovely crisp, fresh, dry peat and smoke, seaside and oil, fresh fruit, mint and malt. Hangs around and finishes soft. Super nice.
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted September 14, 2018Really great. Smoke, ash, peat, oil and tar. Think I prefer the 10yo, this one is sharper and less of forest and moss. Great anyhow.
Highland Park Einar
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandTasted August 1, 2018Decent HP, some sherry, all right, I think the 12 year is better.
Mackmyra Svensk Ek
Single Malt — SwedenTasted August 1, 2018This is good! Although I think the problem for me was too kind and short. And then some herbal thing that I wasn't too much into. A solid product nevertheless and I will explore Mackmyra even more!
