Ardbeg 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed December 23, 2022Smells like a campfire with something sweet underneath. Smooth, short finish. I was surprised, yet again, by Ardbeg offerings. Nice to sip, but don’t think I could have too much of it versus something less in your face.
Ardbeg An Oa
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed December 23, 2022Nice medium smoke on the nose. Short, smooth finish. Understandably a little rougher than Wee Beastie. Probably down to age.
Ardbeg Wee Beastie
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed December 23, 2022Not too smoky on the nose. Some iodine and beneath that something sweet like white wine or white grapes. Short finish with a little warmth.
Bowmore 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed December 19, 2022Great nose! Under the smoke there is hint of sweet. Not overpowering at all. Almost a sweet smoke on short finish; maybe too short? Not spicy. Overall, a pleasant sipper.
Highland Park 18 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandReviewed December 16, 2022Slight smoke on the nose. Hint of something sweet like caramel. Nose opens after first sip. Couldn’t place the sweet on the chew and finish until I read sherry cask maturation. Much better than I expected. Not too heavy on smoke or spice which I had expected.
Slyrs Bavarian Single Malt
Single Malt — Bavaria, GermanyReviewed November 20, 2022Medium nose and legs. Spicy palate with warm finish. For me, the warmth was slightly overpowering. Glad I tried it as I was really curious.
Highland Park 14
Single Malt — ScotlandReviewed October 30, 2022Smoke and peat, but not overpowering. Spicy chew with medium finish. Better than what I was expecting. Liked it more than HP 12
Maker's Mark Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 15, 2022Warm vanilla. Oak. Caramel. A little spiciness with medium finish.
Glenlivet Founder's Reserve
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed July 1, 2022Nice nose. Some fruit and wood. Smooth with short-medium warm finish. It’s on my re-buy list.30.0 EUR per Bottle
Big Peat Blended Malt
Peated Blended Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed February 8, 2022Inviting peat nose and mouthfeel. Surprisingly the finish was cooler than I expected. I decided not to cut it because I like sipping this one as is. It's a decent way to try an Islay blend, but one can also get others that are not blended from Islay for a similar price. It's worth a try if you like trying out the different offerings known for peat.
