Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasted October 30, 2021Smooth start, fruity, very solid spirit.
Canadian — Alberta, CanadaTasted October 30, 2021Not for the feign of pallet. Spicey. Could benefit from additional aging, but enjoy it still.
The Irishman Founder's Reserve
Blended — IrelandTasted April 3, 2021Decent irish whisky.
Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandTasted March 30, 2021Love this spirit! Buttery notes, caramel finish.
The Forager Botanical Whisky
Flavored Whiskey — Niagra, CanadaTasted March 16, 2021I was expecting more character from the buildup on the label (complex it is not) but it is a nice drink none the less. Smooth, pleasant tasting, nothing to really complain about at its price point. I would not recommend to the more experienced whisky enthusiast.
Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice
Blended — ScotlandTasted March 6, 2021I hated it at first, but now find it to be an ok drink. Fruity and a bit of butter caramel, it is not spicy at all. There is an odd aftertaste lingering on the back of the toungue. Wasn't expecting much from a "theme" whisky. Hope we won't see a star wars set (android oil in r2d2 shaped bottles).
Hyde No. 8
Blended — Ireland , IrelandTasted February 12, 2021Easy on the palette, a bit fruity, not spicy. Bit pricey for what ot delivers.73.0 CAD per Bottle
Jameson Black Barrel
Blended — IrelandTasted January 8, 2021I expected a bit more character. It is good, and starts off with some attitude, but establishes and finishes quite ordinarily.
Aberlour 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Double oak cask)
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted December 30, 2020Quite pleasant on the nose. Has a bit of spunk to it, I expected less bite from a 12 year old. But I like it, a nice solid scotch for those of us who are adverse to licking ashtrays. Would love to try a more mature bottle, if I could sneak one by my accountant!
Wayne Gretzky No. 99 Red Cask Whisky
Canadian — Ontario, CanadaTasted December 23, 2020I like this one, but there is a note that reminds me of vinyl upholstery. But the wine does shine through, so I give it a solid "good".
