Aerstone Land Cask 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — ScotlandTasted August 29, 2021Rich, syrupy, and sharp without being harsh. Nice balance of flavours and plenty of peat smoke for something this cheap. Excellent value, definitely the best peaty Scotch anywhere near this price range I've found so far.
Ballantine's 12 Year
Blended — ScotlandTasted August 23, 2021Yeah it's good value tbh, smooth and crisp. That's all I've got, I'm tired.
Copper Dog Blended Malt
Blended Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted August 14, 2021A little rough around the edges, and pretty pricey for a NAS blended dram. A bit of a sweet oakiness.55.0 AUD per Bottle
Wild Turkey Rye
Rye — Kentucky, USATasted August 4, 2021My first rye, yeah it's about what I expected. Rye malt bill with plenty of sweet and spicy to go round. A wee bit of mint, a fair whack of wood. Guess I don't hate Americans so much anymore. If the hard times don't kill me, I'll lay down and die.
Glen Moray Elgin Classic Port Cask Finish
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandTasted July 31, 2021Don't expect a miracle from a no age statement Scotch. A little rosy in colour, smooth and syrupy start with a little fruit and maybe even grapey influence turns to a bit of a harsh finish. Not cheap but far from expensive. Yeah alright.
Aerstone Sea Cask 10 Year
Single Malt — ScotlandTasted July 28, 2021Salty, soft and sweet with a cheeky lil bit of vanilla to it, this one's another winner at a very affordable price. Nice nose and a pretty long sharp finish without being harsh. Got it on sale for $40.50.0 AUD per Bottle
Ardbeg 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted July 22, 2021Good god gosh this is a deliciously dreamy drop, crammed with campfire and pulling a primo peat package plus surprising slight sweetness. Almost affordable and always an ample amount around. Ardberg goes Hardberg.99.0 AUD per Bottle
