The Balvenie Single Barrel 15 Year

Arran Port Cask Finish Single Malt
Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandTasted100 proof but super smooth, mouth coating, a port wine finish. Slight smokiness on the finish
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedVery high alcohol but amazing feel in the mouth. Sweet deep sherry that coats your mouth and the evaporates away. Great rich warmth.
Aberlour 12 Year Double Cask Matured
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedThe second bottle of scotch I purchased. My first impressions (coming from the Glenfarclas 18) were that it was light and had honey/caramel flavors. It doesn't seem to have the oily coating of my tongue like the Glenfarclas and I miss this a bit. The dram grew on me over time and it was very easy to drink and light.
Glenfarclas 18 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedMy first scotch. The bottle grew on me over time. It had strong sherry flavors and was sweet and smooth. I enjoyed the oily character that coated my tongue.
