  1. Mossburn Island Blended Malt Cask Bill #1

    Blended Malt — Island , Scotland

    Tasted
    3.75
    3.75 out of 5 stars
    Not a peaty Scotch, but great flavor nonetheless. If you like Scotch that isn't peaty you'd absolutely love Mossburn- others will still appreciate it for (despite the lack of peat) it's cask tasteful palate finished with a sea salty, minuscule burn, but an overall smooth, delicious experience.
  2. Bushmills 10 Year Single Malt

    Single Malt — Ireland

    For the price, it's hard to do better. Solid Irish with more flavor than Bushmill's original, black, & red, but could use a tincy bit more character given its 40% abv. But at $40... c'mon, what more do you want?

  3. Knappogue Castle 16 Year Sherry Cask Finished

    Single Malt — Ireland

    Unrivaled smoothness, this is one of the best Irish's that I've had. A little pricey given the Knappogue 14 is unique and excellent in its own right for 30 bucks cheaper. The 16 is so good you'll have to exercise restraint to make it last... try the Knap 12, then 14, then 16 to get the true elevation or variation of Knappogue's esteemed line of Irish's.

  4. Suntory Whisky Toki

    Blended — Japan

    Tasted
    4.25
    4.25 out of 5 stars
    Hard to give this 5/5 based on each of my friends unknowingly suggesting the same thing upon my brag of the purchase of Suntory Toki: "Oh, man. You gotta try Hibiki." So the consensus is that Hibiki is the top notch, but Suntory Toki was my first Japanese whisky, as it is for many given it is perhaps the cheapest. I loved it. I could chug it, gargle it, savor it. There are various notes on the fruit side, but predominantly pear and macintosh apple (do not expect granny smith on this, there is nothing sour about it) mixed with a smoky, woody flavor, but said smoke & wood flavors are merely accents to the fruity, botanical ones. If you are searching for a new whisky around $40, do not settle for the same old- try Suntory Toki. This bottle is addicting in the best way.

  5. The Dead Rabbit Irish Whiskey

    Blended — Ireland

    4.0 out of 5 stars
    Above average Irish whiskey and it's cheap. Spicy, with burnt roasted veg and oak followed by a distinct dark chocolate finish. The chocolate comes across most prominently. What a treat to have a uniquely flavored Irish for under forty bucks.

  6. Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon

    Bourbon — Kentucky, USA

    3.25 out of 5 stars
    Not harsh, yet not too complex. Solid bourbon, fair price, not quite a standout. Looking to try the single barrel next. Above is my initial reaction, but as I drank it more there was a standout quality to it.. oakiness married with sweetness linger for a pleasurable finish.
