Isle of Skye 12 Year
Peated Blend — ScotlandReviewed February 24, 2015 (edited August 5, 2017)The first thing I noticed about this scotch was the full creamy texture that rolled right along the palate. I sense rich caramel, juicy apples, touch of raspberry, toasted marshmallow and a modest oakiness that is complimented by a mild peaty finish. It has some spice, but it loses a point for a slightly ethanol burn residual. Overall very nice stuff. I highly recommend if your'e looking to get into some more robust whiskey.
Tyrconnell Single Malt
Single Malt — IrelandReviewed February 24, 2015 (edited October 27, 2018)[Revisited 12/12/16]: It's been quite some time since I last spoke about this dram, but I'll save the sentiments. Smooth, grassy, oily, touch of honey, and rich in super overripe banana. Unfortunately there is a nasty burnt oak/old leather aftertaste that sticks around longer than the flavor does, and over the years I've become repelled by the sticky sweetness. I would still say to give it a go to see how it matches up with the traditional 30$ Irish fair to see which direction your whiskey adventures will take you next. For now, I'm done with this expression.
Jameson Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandReviewed February 24, 2015 (edited November 24, 2015)[Re - Review 11/24/15] A soft and sweet pot still from the lovely Middleton Distillery. Over time I've opened up to this as my palate has danced around the various regions of Scotland and Ireland. Less flavor than most Irish single malts, and also less sour bitterness. This grassy dram is a great approach to beginners' drinking, or just a nice iced dram after work. I personally don't keep any around.
