    Batch OL1117, 60.3 ABV. Spices, sherry, peanut brittle and orange zest on the nose, very spicy fruit and nuts on the palate, long spicy finish. A splash of water toned down the spice on the palate while adding a creaminess.
  6. Green Spot Single Pot Still

    Shoe polish, green bananas and astringincy overpower an otherwise fine dram. It's got the usual Irish whiskey notes in spades, quite good indeed. This would be 4 stars without the unpleasant notes.
  7. Highland Park Valknut

    Peated Single Malt — Islands, Scotland

    Tasted

    This is a curious whiskey, lots of interesting scents and flavors, but all a little disjointed. Initially strong diesel and peat on the nose, after a few minutes these ebb while sherry, barley, vanilla, powdered chocolate and stewed prunes appear. Rich, oily and a little young and hot on the palate with cereal grains, honey, vanilla, walnuts and a hint of sherry and diesel. The long finish has spicy, sweet and savory notes.
  8. Auchentoshan The Bartender's Malt

    Single Malt — Lowlands, Scotland

    Scumptuous nose with floral, chocolate, orange and malt notes plus a hint of smoke. The palate starts off a little rough, grungy for lack of a better word, more Neal Young and Crazy Horse than Nirvana, but it morphs, sip by sip, into a Chris Cornell like transcendent beauty touching all the notes of the nose and adding a raspy spice. The finish is long, peppery and satisfifying.
  9. Jim Beam Distiller's Cut

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    Pleasant nose of vanilla and cherry pie, spicy, chewy palate with cherries, vanilla and peanuts, spicy medium finish with more vanilla and funky peanuts.
  10. Droptine 12 pt

    Bourbon — New York, USA

    3.75 out of 5 stars
    Nice nutty, grape and vanilla notes on the nose and creamy palate, but feels a bit young with some astringency and heat. Medium length warming finish with a little grape nuts cereal.
