I only review whiskies, and I try to keep it short and sweet.... and backlogged with nearly 450 reviews I have yet to post on the app. 🤦🏽♂️
The Singleton of Glen Ord 12 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed June 18, 2018Unusual and quite unique. Maybe the first time I come across a whisky that evokes thoughts of Champagne - the nose is winey with citrus zest. The palate has notes of honey and ginger, but the finish is non-existent. Not bad.
Bowmore Black Rock
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed June 18, 2018It's good, but disappointing for a Bowmore. There's roasted almond and kiwi on the nose, with salt and smoke on the palate (almost like smoked salmon). Palate is decent but short.
Edradour Ballechin 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed June 18, 2018A one-dimensional whisky with peat overpowering every other note. There's peat, with a touch of peat and hints of peat. If Zeus grants you the ability, you may also get hints of cut grass and citrus. The palate is kinda sweet, with some pepperiness and Malboro. The finish is bitter and unpleasant. Skip!
Tomintoul Peaty Tang
Peated Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed June 18, 2018Peat, some rubber and an oily texture. Pretty much the liquid version of Oscar The Grouch. It's garbage.
Amrut Single Cask Peated Barley Port Pipe
Single Malt — IndiaReviewed June 18, 2018Amazing stuff and you could swear this thing comes from the Hebrides. There's brine and white glue on the nose, with plenty peat but little smoke. On the palate there's spice and malted barley, like an exotic beer. The finish is really long and lingering. I recommend, like just about every Amrut.
Glengoyne Cask Strength Batch No. 003
Single Malt — Highland, ScotlandReviewed June 18, 2018Full disclosure: I might be a hater, so feel free to discard this review. To my defense, however, I reviewed this whisky blind AND I generally really enjoy Glengoynes. This was a disappointing dram and none of the aromas or notes played nice together. There's a predominant cereal element on the nose, like oatmeal. Also honey, nuttiness and some fruit cake. The palate is peppery and long.
Tamdhu Batch Strength Batch 002
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed June 18, 2018I don't know about 93, and truthfully I enjoyed this less than my 3 friends during a blind tasting, but it was still enjoyable. There's toasted barley, walnut and stewed fruit on the nose - the sherry influence is obvious on first whiff. The palate has a touch of oak with cacao nibs and tobacco on the finish. The high ABV is subtle here, and it adds pleasant weight and complexity to this whisky, but there's no wow factor. Still... Enjoyable. Cheers!
Glen Grant 18 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed June 18, 2018Well crafted and balanced. Light on the nose with hints of honey and fragrant fruit. The palate has touches of baking spice and brown sugar with bitter dark chocolate on the finish. Quite good.
Glengoyne 12 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed June 10, 2018DELICIOUS AND HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! There's hay and apple on the nose, with a touch of nutmeg. Palate is honeyed and oily. Quite complex.
Benromach 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed June 10, 2018This whisky suffers from multiple personality - peculiar and unpleasant nose with a delicious palate. Notes of mushroom, lavender and sulfur on the nose - hell, maybe even cheese. Palate is fruity, with ginger and wood spices on the finish. Texture oily and medium-bodied. Try it but don't buy it.
