Ardbeg Wee Beastie
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted April 17, 2021Open Date 2-17-2012 Tasting date 4-17-2021 Young and not feeling it here. Why would I buy this young newmake when I can buy Ardbeg 10 for the same price that blows this away by a large margin? I'm just hoping this lower quality product isn't in place to replace the 10 year old. That would be a tragedy against mankind! Buy again? = No way!
Glen Scotia Campbeltown Malts Festival 2019 Rum Cask Finish
Peated Single Malt — Campbeltown, ScotlandTasted April 14, 20214/14/2021 At 7 months now being open and @ 1/2 bottle I'm taking my score down to 3.5 as its only soso now and still has strong alcohol burn even watered to 86. I'm surprised I gave it a 4 when first opened so possible my palate is also changing. At this point I would not buy this again. Very unmemorable and not worth buying again. Life is to short.
Single Malt — Bangalore, IndiaTasted April 6, 20212nd review. Open = 8-21-2020 Today's tasting 4-6-2021 Not sure if my palate is changing or if its oxidation but now I can only give 3.5 I don't find myself reaching for this one much now.
Arran Amarone Cask Finish Single Malt
Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandTasted April 6, 2021Open = 8-24-2020 Tasting = 4-6-2021 I have been holding off on this written tasting as I have already had over half this bottle and was hoping it was going to open up to be better to match the amazing high score here on Distiller. I'm sad to say after over 7 months being opened I can only rate it a 3.25. I'm very disappointed in this one and not sure if its cask/quality variations but this bottle I have is not the highly rated one here. Sadly I bought 2 bottles because of the high rating. Anyone interested???

Peated Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted April 5, 2021Bottle open = 1/10/2021 Tasting Date = 4/5/2021 Now open for 15 months and almost undrinkable. Now flat and very hot. Who would want to buy this shite?
Balcones Texas Single Malt Rum Cask Finished
American Single Malt — Texas, USATasted March 31, 2021Open Date= 12/25/2020 Tasting Date= 3/31/2021 Bottle @ 2/3 Love the Single Malt and French Oak but this one just missed the mark. A bit to sweet with some strong alcohol burn even watered to 92 and 86 Will not buy again
Kirkland Signature 23 year Speyside sherry cask finish
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted March 30, 2021Open Date 3-1-2021 Review Date 4-1-2021 Bottle Contents Just below the shoulder @ top of Kirkland Label What can I say but I am totally disappointed at this early review of only 4 weeks open but below shoulder. This has less luster than a Loch Lomond 12 swill whisky. I see that this is bottled for Costco by Alexander Murray and company. Based on the Ultra low quality of this spriit I will never purchase anything from this independent bottle. This inferior product just hurts their brand and makes any serious Scotch fan go to Signatory Vintage products even more. This has the alcohol burn of a cheap whisky half its stated age. Is it really 23 years old? Its hard to believe. I wonder how much food color is in this whisky? From all the high reviews I was expecting something very tasty but my bottle at least this is shite!
