  1. Glenmorangie A Tale of Cake

    Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland

    Tasted April 7, 2021

    2.75 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Surprising amount of the tokaji finish, which likely adds to the sweet, icing note. Diving deeper, baking spice appears, maybe cinnamon (?). The nose is very well balanced out by an appealing note of white chocolate. Palate: Even more wine influence that highlights lots of fermented fruit which is paired with a very prototypical glenmorangie mouthfeel that finishes off a little thin. Finish: Again, very Glenmo. The white chocolate shows again. Finishes Sweet, too much for me, but I can understand the draw for some people. I've never really been a glenmo fan and this dram unfortunately isn't much different. The nose was really interesting, unfortunately the liquid fell a little short for me.

  2. Pike Creek 10 Year Rum Barrel Finish

    Nose: Vanilla and toffee with dried fruit hiding in the background. Palate: Seemingly endless waves of butterscotch, vanilla shows through with some water. Finish: Even more vanilla, sweetness from the rum barrel rounds out the dram nicely. One of the few rum barrel whiskies I enjoy, still continues to be solid for the price.

    Nose: Less demerara than expected. Loads of mushroom, and mossy, musty wood. Palate: Huge note of BBQ smoked mushrooms caps, with even more smoke to spare. Finish: The demerara finally shows, more mushroom and a very creamy finish round out the rum.

    Nose: Very light, the floral notes hide in the background and caramel is highlighted. Palate: Lovely bit of rose, minimal salt. Rose is definitely the star. Finish : Even more rose comes through, seaweed, very crisp finish. I wish I got a little more kelp/sea salt from it, but well done nonetheless.

  5. Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin

    Flavored Gin — England

    The nose gushes with fresh blood orange as does both the palate and finish. The juniper adds a nice balance throughout. I found the backend a tad harsh straight, but it could be easily masked in any cocktail. My only complaint is that the big juicy notes could be limiting if you are wanting use it for cocktails.

    Nose: Honey and sweet apple notes at the forefront with some pleasant medicine and brine. Palate: Caramel, vanilla, underlying pear and peat. Finish: Short, chocolate/cocoa and vanilla with more caramel and a touch of dried nut and fruit. Better than expected for the price; simple, approachable and smooth. Most importantly, the underlying peat/brine keep it interesting throughout.
