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. 🤦🏽♂️
Glen Elgin 18 Year (2017 Special Release)
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed May 24, 2018 (edited August 15, 2018)Oh my god... and a great review by Jake Emen. Apples and pineapple on the nose with a touch of toasted barley and honey. Very creamy on the palate with wood spices, vanilla and floral notes. The finish is quite long and, though fiery (this IS cask strength), with great finesse. This whisky is a work of art!
Jim Beam Apple
Fruit Liqueurs — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 18, 2018 (edited May 19, 2018)Their honey flavour is more palatable than this one. 7-up can't do miracles here. Only your sink or toilet can. Avoid.
Jim Beam Honey
Other Liqueurs — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 18, 2018 (edited October 20, 2020)If you like honey flavored Halls cough lozenges, this "whisky" is for you. With 7-Up it's enjoyable. Then again, I'm sure cyanide is enjoyable with soda.
Woodford Reserve Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed May 18, 2018 (edited May 27, 2018)I don't dislike it - it's got a better nose than palate, though the finish is a high note. Nose: touch of caramel with a strong vanilla note. Palate: charred oak, honey and some cherry. Finish: wood spice and oak.
Cardhu Limited Edition 2018
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed May 11, 2018 (edited May 27, 2018)Very good whisky. Similar to their 12 but more flavourful, almost bolder. Apples and cinnamon, like pie. A touch of cinnamon and oak as well. Oily texture and fairly long finish.
Cragganmore Limited Edition 2018
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed May 11, 2018Available only at the distillery, 1 of 1800 bottles. Much tamer than the typical Cragganmore, with apples and honey on the nose. Vanilla and oak on the palate with a touch of spice. Good whisky.
Glendronach 1993 25 Year Hand-Filled Manager's Cask 400
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed May 11, 2018 (edited November 23, 2018)Thick and rich, with almonds, sweet plums and oak. The subtle wood spices on the finish is prolonged and warm. Divine!
Glendronach 1992 25 Year Single Cask
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed May 11, 2018 (edited May 8, 2020)Spectacular! I could not heap a sufficient amount of praise for this expression even if I wanted to, and if you can get your hands on the bottle, it's worth just about any (reasonable) price. That sherry, oak and baking spices are really strong on the nose. On the palate it's woodsy and sugary, with a syrupy and almost granular texture on the tongue; it's a mouthfeel that is more akin to an expensive cognac. A wow factor. Also notes of ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, dried fruits, and the whole damned pantry! It's one of the all-time best!
Glendronach 1993 24 Year Cask 656
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed May 11, 2018 (edited May 16, 2018)Yeah... It's alright. Not great considering the price. It's complex though. Just not the right type of complexity - like someone who's bipolar and not taking their medication. 😏 Green tea and dates, with some almond paste. It's sweet and bitter at the same time.
Glendronach 1995 22 Year Cask 3311
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed May 11, 2018 (edited May 16, 2018)Maybe it was my bottle, but there was an off flavour - sulfurous. Hints of tea, dark chocolate and plums. We were a group of 30 people and the mild dislike of this expression was nearly unanimous.
