Redbreast 12 Year
Single Pot Still — IrelandReviewed June 8, 2019I’d like to say I love this as much as everyone else, but I can’t. Not bad, just a little boring.
Tomatin 18 Year Oloroso Sherry Casks
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed June 5, 2019Really happy with this purchase. Opens with plenty of dried fruits. Opens up to spice, roasted nuts and toffee. Long sherries finish as well. A great value as well.
Cragganmore 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed March 3, 2019The nose on this whisky is complex and filled with strawberries, bananas, citrus, malt, and honey. The palate starts out very mild, but gradually reveals fruit, honey, and nuts. Would need more on the palate to give a higher rating, but still very well done.
Stagg Jr Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch 1
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed February 21, 2019 (edited November 4, 2019)$50 in my area. On the nose, big notes of cigar box, cinnamon, brown sugar and oak. Palate rich with oranges, cherries, and a little black pepper. Long finish. Great value if you like Buffalo Trace products.
Henry McKenna 10 Year Bottled in Bond Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed January 7, 2019For the money, this is a very rich and satisfying pour of bourbon.
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed December 13, 2018Delicious balance between smoke, spice, and sweet. Well worth the money.
Rittenhouse Rye Bottled in Bond
Rye — Kentucky, USAReviewed November 3, 2018Rye spice, cherries, vanilla. Beautifully sweet and drinkable for 100 proof. If you can find this stuff just grab it. For $25 you won’t be disappointed.
Forty Creek Copper Pot Reserve
Canadian — Ontario, CanadaReviewed November 2, 2018Nice butterscotch and chocolate notes, but very slight. Shows promise, but too little flavor and too much alcohol on the palate
Springbank 15 Year
Peated Single Malt — Campbeltown, ScotlandReviewed November 2, 2018Cocoa, almonds, smoke, and spice. Very good.
Balvenie Single Barrel Sherry Cask 15 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed October 18, 2018Tasty stuff. Toffee, buttered waffles, and mild spice. Rich and balanced. Not much dried fruit for sherry ( probably 2nd fill), but definitely quality.
