I buy expensive whiskey to make the employee following me in the liquor store feel bad.

    Nose: fruit cake, clove, cinnamon, faint oak, stewed plums, lemon curd, milk chocolate, pepper Taste: extremely dense fig, heavy pepper finish. Dry and sour. Lemon zest. Light malt. Dense dry walnuts. Orange zest, parsley, baking spices, red wine, graphite, underripe peaches or pear. Water subdues all the fruit notes and brings maple syrup and powdered sugar. Finish is still long and dry with heavy red wine notes,

    Nose: allspice baking spices, light grape or figs, malt, oak, blonde roast espresso, heavy port Taste: fruit cake, peach, vanilla, light oak. Finish is dense port wine. Interesting in that it doesn’t overpower the rest of the flavors as port finishes usually do. Dense cherry, white grapes, milk chocolate. Becomes malty and sour when water is added.

  6. Kilchoman Machir Bay 2016

    Peated Single Malt — Scotland

    Tasted
    4.25
    4.25 out of 5 stars
    Nose: burnt brisket, nectarines, honey, vanilla, a bit of barrel bitter, salt water. Taste: cherry, vanilla, butter, burnt bacon, very sweet tomato, burning hay, marshmallow, black pepper. Finish is almost non existent. Water eliminates almost all the sweet elements and really brings the bacon and burning hay. The finish then elongates into honey and bacon grease.

  7. Suntory Whisky Toki

    Blended — Japan

    Tasted
    4.0
    4.0 out of 5 stars
    Nose: vanilla, honey, caramel, lemon, orange, pear, slight cake malt Taste: lemon, very very light peat, pear, apple, cake malt, honey, rosemary, parsley, I feel this gets looked over a lot because its a readily available Japanese whiskey and they let the hype take over. This is no Harmony or a single malt for sure and its a bit young, but it is good, especially for $30 or under. Treat it like a budget highland or speyside scotch rather than some mystical Japanese product and it'll be good
    25.0 USD per Bottle
  8. Ron Diplomático Reserva Exclusiva Rum

    Aged Rum — Venezuela

    Tasted
    3.75
    3.75 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Bosch pear, buttercream, caramel, molasses, banana, Taste: caramel and a bit bready like a tres leches cake. Banana, tropical fruit. Slightly floral. Brown sugar. Finish is almost non existent but it goes down easy enough. It’s good in that it doesn’t have that glue or plasticy note that I find in most cheap runs

    Tasted
    3.5
    3.5 out of 5 stars
    Nose: blueberries, dense earthy peat, butterscotch, caramel, corn bread, lavender. Taste: gingerbread, caramel, dry grass. Finish is a very spicy black pepper and heavy red wine graphite / leather taste. Almost no mid palette. I think I got a neck pour so that may be the issue.
