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

    Nose: cereal malt, heavy apple and cherry juice. light vanilla, black pepper, cloves/ cardamom, caramel, butterscotch. Taste: very malty and watery with a spicy finish. sherry, figs, and cherries with a bit of apricot as well. Almost a pancake / fruitcake malt. Very strong sherry notes. Water turns it into hard cherry candy sweet, maple syrup and grapes. Notes of caramel and chocolate appear as well. Honestly skip this one and go right for the abunadh it's easily 1000 times better

    Nose: very strong black pepper and malt with a hint of the sherry cask. Honey, vanilla cream, and light caramel as well. Taste: christmas fruit cake with very lightest hint of some peat at the back. Very intensely sherried almonds and grapes. The peat represents itself as cheese and bacon grease after you get past the sherry notes. Very dry oak on the finish Water makes the nose very honeyed and crisp with pear notes. Taste is much of the same sherry notes with a long after taste of rubber

  4. Ardbeg Wee Beastie

    3.5 out of 5 stars
    2nd time tasting: Nose - blueberry jam, blue cheese, espresso, chocolate, burnt wood. Taste: blueberries / dark fruit immediately turns into bacon grease and then disappears. The finish returns with that mint after taste but now it has the edition of a burnt hay. Fairly generic vegetation note as well. Very lingering black pepper finish as well. Water intensifies the fruit notes as well as the malt. It turns the taste into what I can only describe as motor oil. The flavors definitely evolved from last time but it’s still a 3.5 from me

    Nose: burnt bacon, sweet maple syrup, blue cheese, mayonnaise, pine wood, sap, cherry, strawberry, Taste: ham, espresso grounds, dark chocolate, black pepper. Water brings out the maltiness and a minty lagavulin style mid palette. Not as smokey as one would expect from a young islay.

    Single Malt — Highland, Scotland

    Tasted

    3.5 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Malt, light citrus and creme, almost like a key lime pie. meringue, lemon, cinnamon, light dense floral. Apples, light pears, apricots, vanilla Taste: This is almost impossible to drink neat. It needs a lot of water to open up. Once you add it, hold it up to the light to see just how dense and oily it is. Malt starts on the palette and quickly fades into oak and spice. It then goes to a dense honey, slightly floral and very fruity mid palette. The spice comes back in force after a bit, almost getting to the rye spice territory of slightly herbal and strong spice. Its almost like eating something actually spicy. On the one hand this feels like a really good and complex malt. On the other, it seems a bit younger than it should be. It is very rough around the edges. May be worth it just to try it especially if you don't mind strong bold flavors. Maybe even suited to convert a rye drinker. Obligatory: was a neck pour may rereview etc.
