    Mashbill: corn, rye, and maybe some wheat, in the mix. One source said "high rye" and another, "high corn". Previously aged 15 years And now "4-20" (10-11?). (Willett-KBD) Chocolatey and brown sugar aroma. A bit nutty and the rye comes through on the palate with a bitter chocolate flavor. Rich and smooth (though I would not call it viscous) and only needs a few drops of water at most. Bottles seem to vary quite a bit and it seems like this does well with some extra air in the bottle. Over time it seems to get better.

    Peat level: 7-8 ppm. Aged in ex-sherry casks. https://youtu.be/H6ah4eFc1tI. Nose: light smoke, red sweet berries, sherry, freshly-cut tree Palate: sweet fruits, some bitter vegetal flavor Finish: sweet, pepper, maybe a little chocolate Overall: a wonderful whisky with a fair amount of complexity The vegetal note on the palate reminds me of the vegetal and seaweed flavors I find in younger Laphroaig.

    Phenols at 35 ppm. Aged in ex-bourbon casks for 10+ years. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-U8me62kZEY ; https://youtu.be/vf3QkrOn2OI. Pronounced kyaw-bin-och. A smoky and earthy aroma with flavors that include some pepper, an earthiness, malt, vanilla, and light citrus. There is a nice sweet, honeyed, finish and, not my comment, but "warm salted butter" fits this well. The only drawback for me is a lingering bit of seaweed on the palate.

    MB: 72/18/10 corn, rye, malt. Aged 12 years. #4 barrel char. (Brown Forman) Aromas of mint (and something related), butterscotch, and wood. I can definitely taste the wood in this whiskey. Butterscotch and vanilla/caramel also are on the palette, with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall this tastes a bit thin to me, like all Old Foresters. That and the bitterness really kill the overall flavor and finish.

    Barreled in first fill bourbon and finished in sherry casks. https://youtu.be/WaDcOhX4Tzs. https://youtu.be/jdAjPbgmtXk. Smells, and tastes a bit, like bailed hay (shortbread also makes sense), and it is quite smooth. A rich flavour and the aroma is fruity, with vanilla shortbread and some brown sugar.

    30-35 ppm phenols. Aged in refill ex-bourbon casks. Aroma: smoky with a bit of brine/seaweed, flint, light vanilla, fennel, and sandalwood (or some kind of woody incense) Palate: Woody, ginger, vanilla, light fruit, oily Finish: a minimal finish with wood and a hint of ginger and pepper Overall: subtle (for a smoky scotch), with water the spicy notes are more noticeable from the palate through the finish (but being very light do not add more than a few drops of water)

    Phenols at 8 ppm. Nose: light fresh fruit: apple/pear, sweet/sugar aroma, smells somehow like a field Palate: honey, ginger, wood, oily, beeswax?, slight bitterness Finish: ginger and light sweetness lingers, there is a light tea note as well Overall: complex with little of any obvious peat; well worth a try Add some water to enhance the aromas and pick out more flavors Probably aged in both ex-bourbon and ex-sherry casks. (Clynelish used to be one of the two distilleries, with Brora).
