    Rick number L-1, barrel 18-9890, bottled on 10/24/18, 67.95 % ABV! The colour is impressive, very dark with almost some sort of a red glow to it. I get glue!?! on the nose, might be the smell of my burning nosehairs though, highest ABV I've tried so far! There's also definitely some maple syrup hidden behind the alcohol. The palate is massive. Brown sugars, lots of it, and cherries, dark and almost overipe ones. The ABV numbes my tongue a bit. After adding some drops of water the maple syrup shows up on the palate and finish followed by some bitter dark chocolate. This is some intense whisky, love it! Cheers all

    My brother gifted me this bottle, he picked it up in Holland were the price is much better (60€ vs 155 CAD$). I told him I would open it when my daughter was born, which happened today! On the nose I get dried fruits and tar, it's rich and sweet. The palate is great, sherry sweetness and brine. On the finish the classic Ardbeg peat shows up perfectly in harmony with red fruits, sea salt and again tar. A perfect whisky for a special moment, cheers all!

    I love the 8 year age statement on this bottle, a really great young whisky this is. It's a blended malt mainly consisting of Ben Nevis. It's blended with one other Highland single malt. Rich sherry notes on the nose, Plums, abricots, overripe dark red fruits. As soon as you take a sip this whisky takes over. More sweet and sugary fruits, almost like strawberry jam. No heat for 58% ABV. The finish is long and chewy. Really fantastic stuff! Cheers all

    After reading some great reviews I was excited when this bottle became available here in Quebec. All the boxes checked, it's a great one indeed! Fruity and nutty aroma's on the nose, a little sour note as well. Also some spice on the background most likely from the virgin oak casks. On the palate just great balanced sherry flavours, dried figs, grapes, apricots, a faint little salt and some bitter chocolat. Very well done. The finish lingers on for medium length. On par with Glendronach 12! Cheers all

    First pour from my bottle, hard to get a lot on the nose, I think I'm getting a cold pff. The palate is very fruity up front, mainly apples or even apple sauce. On the finish I get nice spices, cinnamon and clove, followed by some bitterness and a pinch of salt. The finish is not overly long. I will get back to this one in a couple of weeks to provide a cold-free review. Cheers all

    Beautifull classy bottle, looks great and I might keep it after it's empty to use as an infinity bottle! Very oily, long legs in the glass. Citrus, oak, vanilla and rye spice on the nose. It has a spicy palate, lots of cinnamon and black pepper. The finish is long, spicy, bitter, some salted caramel shows up. Wow, great single barrel rye from JD. If you would have me taste this blind I would never guess its from them. Definitely recommend this to rye lovers!

    Benromach Peat Smoke. Distilled in 2008, bottled in 2017. 46% ABV, 47 PPM, natural colour, lightly chill filtered. Honey and grassy notes on the nose. I also get a faint herbal peat smell. The palate is apples and pears, vanilla, black licorise and some smoke. It has a medium long finish of peat, sea salt and oak. My first ever Benromach, great stuff! Cheers

    Picked this one up at the duty free on Schiphol airport. I fell for the packaging and presentation of the whisky. I have a weakness for 46% ABV , no added colour or chillfiltration and I have had a really good experience with the Benriach 10 Curiositas. Very oily Scotch. Lots of oak on the nose, some tobacco as well. There's also a very subtle fruity note to the nose, green apples and lime. On the palate you get vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, coffee/cappuchino, toffee. The finish is medium long. A very unique Scotch, it tastes like lovely coffee ice cream in a glass. Very glad I picked this one up, cheers fellow addicts!

    A quick re-visit. A great intro into peat. Sweet and salty black licorise with a hint of smoke. Hard to beat for the price. Cheers
