    This would have gotten a higher score, but for the price was truly disappointing. If this had been 60-70 dollars I'd say pick up a bottle, but as the price stands I can't recommend this, and quite frankly I'm surprised this passed muster.Id much rather have Tamdhu Cask Strength at half the price or even if price was not a factor. I wanted to try a "Good McCallan and not just the 12 but for $125 I can find whisky that blows this away by a huge margin. I feel MaCallan should be ashamed of themselves and eventually are ruining their name for the normal drinkers. If I want to spend 1 to 4 K dollars I'm sure they make wonderful whiskies but their common stuff is.....well.....shite! Still in shock that I spent $125 for this mediocre dram!

    I've been tasting this for the last two weeks before I rated it and this is some good sh**! This will always be in my top pics of peated whiskies

    I'm here tasting on New Year's Eve 2019 and appreciating the absolute smoothness of this whisky. I understand it doesn't have the smack in the face of other whiskies in its category but small sipping and nosing now I have to say absolutely delicious and glad to have in my collection. Very recommended!

  7. Monopolowa Vodka

    Just for a change I thought I would try a bottle of Stolichnaya which is a highly rated grain vodka so I could compare it to my many year standby of this Monopolowa which is a potato vodka. I usually only have vodka in Martinis with Garlic Stuffed Olives but want ted to compare neat chilled to 70 degrees and served in Glencairn glasses so I could nose and taste better than a shot glass. I have to say I'm not sure what the reviewer here was tasting or if she is a "paid reviewer" but I do not find this one BITTER & HARSH or @ a rating of 64. I think the Stoli is a quality Vodka and at twice the price of this one but I actually prefer the flavor and experience better with the MONOPOLOWA. I buy this at Trader Joes here in Socal in the 1000ml bottle for $10.50 vs. the Stoli 750ml for $17 on 12/29/2019 Decide for yourself..............Slainte!
  8. Green Spot Single Pot Still

    Single Pot Still — Ireland

    Tasted
    I'm not rating at first pour as I would like to spend some time with the whisky as the bottle opens up. What I will state right now is that its so light it makes it hard for me to get anything out of this whisky. I think there should be an international law that prohibits whisky producers from selling whiskies under 92 proof and especially under 86 proof. Green Spot @ 80 proof is simply too weak to enjoy the flavor profiles offered in a whisky!

    Have had the bottle open for about 2 months now. Nice nose but has some off putting flavor to my palate. I see its rated highly but tastes like a young whisky with noticeable alcohol burn!
