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. 🤦🏽♂️
Yamazakura Fine Blended Whisky
Blended — JapanReviewed August 17, 2016Quite the disappointment. The nose is for the most part smoky with hints of fruit (which for the life of me I cannot figure out because it's so tasteless), the palate falls flat without body, and the finish just isn't there. Picture a blend of water, sugar and cigarette.
Haig Club Single Grain
Single Grain — Lowlands, ScotlandReviewed August 15, 2016Surprisingly decent. There's a bit of a burn in the finish, and that takes away from the overall pleasure of this whisky, but both the nose and palate are pleasing. Imagine sweet breakfast cereal without the milk.
Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye
Canadian — Manitoba, CanadaReviewed August 12, 2016It has taken me three different occasions to finally PARTIALLY appreciate this whiskey. The hints of pear and caramel are wonderful, but the burn is terrible. Though not unpardonable, this whisky is largely forgettable.
Macallan Fine Oak 21 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed August 12, 2016Outstanding. This truly is a perfect whisky, and the oak perfectly complements it, offering a balanced taste and satisfying finish.
Highland Park 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandReviewed August 5, 2016Pleasant hints of toffee and moss, lightly peated, a fantastic mouthfeel, and a delicious yet short finish. This is a great whisky that merits 4 stars.
Té Bheag Connoisseurs' Blended Whisky
Blended — ScotlandReviewed July 23, 2016Blended scotches aren't my cup of tea, but this isn't bad. It's ever so lightly peated and spicy. Lacks both body and finish, but it's not much to complain about considering the price.
Highland Park 18 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandReviewed July 22, 2016Dare I say perfect? The nose is wonderfully reminiscent of caramel squares candies, and the palate is just the right amount of peat (and slightly saline). The entire experience is well-balanced, with a wonderful finish that makes you wish for more. A true accomplishment!
Aberfeldy 21 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed July 22, 2016Spicier than the 12, with a pleasant fruity nose and an able body. The finish feels like an Academy speech that requires the orchestra to cut short the winner, particularly because the spice is poorly balanced, but overall a decent whisky.
Glenfiddich 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed July 21, 2016Though as exciting as a geriatric convention, its hints of pears is pleasant. The palate is predominantly spice and the finish nearly nonexistent. It's a decent enough whiskey, but in my opinion a poor representation of the speyside region.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed July 19, 2016A light citrus nose, lightly body, and pleasant but hasty finish. There's peat, a little bit of smoke, and a nice touch of caramel. Picture having an improved Aberfeldy 12 with a lighter - the lighter because you're burning half your money.
