    Kind of a raw sweetish alcohol smell almost like a young brandy, but a fairly smooth taste that sort of reminds me of Irish pot still whiskey - malty flavors of light sherry and wood resin, with a slightly warming finish. Just a bit of brine and smoke - a bit of a coastal feel. Simple but enjoyable.
  2. Pyrat Rum XO Reserve

    Aged Rum — Anguilla, Anguilla

    Simple, straightforward, smooth. Very candied and sweet, flavors of caramel, sugarcane, and a bit of cooked plantain. No hard edges. Great value.
  3. Caperdonich 1995 17 Years Old, Berry Bros. & Rudd Single Cask 95077

    Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland

    Warming with sweet spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. A modest amount of fireplace smoke. Sort of a creamy, almost buttery quality - rounded, soft but full flavor. What a nice unusual Speyside!
  4. Caol Ila Distillers Edition

    Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

    (2010 bottling) Intense, while being smooth and balanced. Plenty of smoke scents, sort of like barbecue and cigars. Tastes like a combination of smoke and ripe fruit, with a warming and drying finish. Great, for those who like peated whisky with some sweetness.
  5. Tomatin 12 Year Old French Oak

    Single Malt — Highland, Scotland

    Smooth and fruity, but also has a bit of a woody kick. Definitely can smell and taste the oak, but this also has a noticeably fruity flavor, like cherry. Warming and sturdy on the finish - it feels like a whisky to drink in a wood-paneled law office after hours.
  6. Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition

    Peated Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland

    Powerful smell of grass and grains. Flavors are balanced nicely between sweetness and dried fruit on the one hand, and malty Highland whisky flavors along with some saltiness. Finishes with a strong but smooth burn down the throat.
  7. Vivat Armenia Apricot

    Other Brandy — Armenia, Armenia

    This Apricot brandy smells unpleasant, like paint thinner. The taste is somewhat better - there is a burn upfront and a bit of a harsh mouthfeel, but at least the apricot flavor is there in the background, and there is some sweetness. It finishes with some sharp alcohol burning sensations but then fades to a pleasant warmth. The bottle says it was aged 30 years - it does not taste like that, unless it was aged in metal tanks!
  8. Aberlour A'bunadh

    Powerful and smooth as hell.
  9. Old Pulteney 12 Year

    Fairly light, a little malty, a little sweet, a little briny. Good, but a little indistinct, almost like a blend of a few single malts.
  10. Agavero Original Tequila Liqueur

    Sharp scent of tequila. Tastes very sweet, like agave syrup, with a kick of silver tequila at the end. Straightforward but smooth and tasty.
