Johnnie Walker A Song of Ice
Blended — ScotlandReviewed March 6, 2021 (edited September 6, 2023)I 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 Heritage Cask Stout Cask Finish
Blended — IrelandReviewed 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 — IrelandReviewed January 8, 2021 (edited February 10, 2021)I expected a bit more character. It is good, and starts off with some attitude, but establishes and finishes quite ordinarily.
Aberlour 12 Year Double Cask Matured
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed December 30, 2020 (edited January 16, 2022)Quite 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 Maple Cask
Canadian — Niagara, Ontario, CanadaReviewed December 23, 2020So far my least favorite of the great ones collection. It's got maple up the wazoo, maybe I thought it would be more subtle. Don't hate it, but the bottle will be around for a good part of 2021.
Single Malt — WalesReviewed December 18, 2020 (edited December 30, 2020)It's different, it has a smell and taste that sets it apart from scotch or Irish. I like it, won't be in my primary selection. A good option when I want something different.
Compass Box Spice Tree
Blended Malt — ScotlandReviewed December 18, 2020A great selection when you want a shot with some attitude.
Balvenie Triple Cask 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed December 18, 2020Balvenie does not disappoint. Great special occasion spirit.
The Cardrona Single Malt Single Cask Pinot Noir
Single Malt — Central Otago, New ZealandReviewed December 18, 2020This is a great taste, especially for its age. Had the pleasure to see the distillery. The price makes it a special occasion nip.
Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed December 18, 2020Fine tasting whisky. One of my favorites.
