    Needed this one tonight to punch me in the mouth. Crazy way to start the week 😅

    It’s fresh, piney, “organic”. What I consider to be a “Scotchy-scotch” in true Highlands style, which generally isn’t my personal preference. But this is quality, so I like it. Not something I’ll drink regularly but it fills a gap in the collection.

    Nice leathery nose although the palate disappointed a bit in complexity and depth. Interesting to try a 28-yr bourbon though, probably the oldest I’ve seen.

    Excellent Wild Turkey high-rye bourbon that noses like a rye and tastes like a caramel bomb. Rye comes back on the finish and the entire experience is rich, complex, and leaves you wanting more. The low ABV might hold back the finish slightly but improves the nose, which I'll take in this case. Try it!

    This immediately jumped close to the top of my list of not in the #1 spot. It’s not surprising since I love Islay, Caol Ila, and higher aged expressions. This one is a subtle peat but so expressive and complex. Beautiful!

    The best tequila I've had so far, but not against much competition. Compared to my typical whisky experience, it was MUCH sweeter, especially on the nose, and had a distinct agave characteristic on the finish. Still, quite enjoyable once I got past the sweet nose. Excited to try a few other high-end tequilas (DJ1942, Don Pilar XA) for comparison.

    This is for a “The Whisky Exchange” custom bottling. Solid peated Malt here. Comes through much fresher than Islay-style peat with subtle vanilla and oak in the mid-palate. Fairly rich and malty as well...this is a really strong expression.

    Compared to the 1999 3rd (18 years old) this one is much darker in every way...Nose is actually similar with this one focusing more on the stewed fruits, but the palate is where the experience jumps dramatically. This 1990 ~25 year old is super sticky and rich, without being syrupy. Closest comparison would be the Highland Park The Dark 17 year old, which was a lighter version of this for twice the price. Balblair knocked it out of the park with this one, and comparing against the younger brother definitely enhanced the quality of the 1990. Grab this (or the 1991) while you still can.

    Starts out a bit shy, with classic soft green apple and brown sugar on the nose with stewed fruits and vanilla on the palate. After a while, the palate gets spiky-er and more complex, with brighter berries coming through. 89/100
