1. The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve

    Single Malt — Speyside, Scotland

    3.75 out of 5 stars
    Received as a gift and had low expectations. I must say it won me over. Nose: Malt and pear, oak and walnut. Maybe a tad floral? Smells strong and very good. Palate: Surprisingly tasty given the abv. Malt and wood. Sweetness is lower than expected. Finish: Short. A bit of oak and then nothing. Try it with a few drops of water (again, surprisingly). One of my favorite daily drinkers so far.

    Okay it's really inexpensive, but that's it. Smells and tastes like cheap alcohol, I hate that. If you get over that, it tastes like a typical rye, not a very good one, and diluted.

  3. Lot No. 40 Canadian Rye

    Canadian — Canada

    4.0 out of 5 stars
    If you hate rye don't bother, obviously, otherwise you have to taste it, it is a very intriguing and atypical rye with a good complexity. Nose: Raspberry, hints of slightly fermented grass. Brown sugar sweetness and a touch of vanilla. There is some tartness that reminds of red wine vinegar. Palate: Raspberry jam, peppery rye spices, charred oak, not that sweet. Thin texture and a bit dry, not the most pleasant feeling but not bad either. Finish: Strawberry candy and raspberry jam, very fruity. Medium+ length. +0.25 for price/quality

  4. Kilkerran 12 Year

    Peated Single Malt — Campbeltown, Scotland

    4.25 out of 5 stars
    Nose: The peat is very controlled and coated in sweetness, great balance. Coal and rotting grass. Salty and heavily smoked meat. Some water brings out some fresh ripe pears, yellow apples and a hint of vanilla. The saltiness comes out a bit stronger but is overpowered by the sweetness. The malt is now there as well. a hint of lemon custard and walnut. Palate: Intensity and sweetness, by which the peat is covered. Olive oil and a bit of ash. Juicy feeling like a very fatty smoked meat, makes you salivate. A few drops of water lets the malt and the wood shine. Pears and walnuts are back in the dance. finish: A return of the campfire on a beach. Long finish, smoke tends to last longer in my experience. Gets more meaty with water. Overall very complex, layered and changing yet very enjoyable. Very good quality/price for a scotch.

  5. Gooderham & Worts Four Grain Canadian Whisky

    Canadian — Ontario, Canada

    4.5 out of 5 stars
    This is an amazing whiskey, one of the few best I have tasted. It is very atypical, both complex and very easy to enjoy. Interestingly perceptible influence of the wheat, the corn and the rye with a perfect balance. a delicious, profond, suprising whisky. Nose: Dried and slightly dusty cereals, raisins macerating in spiced rum, crème brûlée crust, cherries, a lot of sweetness. Very rich, complex and powerful. Palate: Very aromatic, an explosion of flavours. A lot of what was in the nose comes back on the palate. Very sweet and pleasantly liquorous. Very refined taste. Brown sugar, some blackberry fruit paste. The colour brown comes to mind when I have this in my mouth. Finish: Medium length. More woodiness, a lot drier than before but still a good sweetness. A return of the raisins in rum. Price/quality is absolutely insane, +0.5 for that. You absolutely need to taste this.
