Other Whiskey — USATastedSweet and caramel on the nose. Orange flavor and a little floral. Very smooth for its ABV and overall was great on ice.
Ledaig 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandTastedPossibly the best combo of smoke and peat I’ve had. Starts with a sweet roasted and spiced taste then lingers with smoke for a while. Very smooth with little bite but not sweet either
Octomore 07.1/208 Scottish Barley
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedPretty good, for the ABV especially. It’s light and peaty but not particularly smoky, and a slight floral aftertaste that lingers. I can tell this is a quality whiskey just not my personal style
Springbrook Adirondack High rye bourbon
Rye — Queens bury, New York, USATastedReally smooth on the palate, seems to last and almost numb, and then a little spicy in the throat. It’s light with a sweet and toasted taste - even though it’s a bourbon you can definitely taste the blend
Yamazaki 12 Year
Single Malt — Honshu, JapanTastedAmazing. Light and smooth on the palate with (very) subtle vanilla/floral notes. Just a tad sharp on the finish and a flavor that lasts.
Ardbeg Wee Beastie
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTastedSmoky but smooth and even a little sweet on the palate. Definitely getting the salt and maybe a little meats but not the chocolate personally. It’s good just personally prefer the sharper/harsher brands with the peat.
Blended — JapanTastedA little sweet, goes down easy, tasty with certain foods but nothing remarkable about it
