The Macallan Genesis
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedIncredibly rich and full bodied on the nose with warm sugars, raisins, and baking spices. The palate is just as pleasing. Rich with a bit of an oily texture. The baking spices remain with added hints of dried fruits, finalized by chocolates and hazelnut flavors left on the back of the tongue.55.0 GBP per PourThe Macallan Distillery Ltd
William Larue Weller Bourbon (Fall 2018)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATastedRich, buttery, maple roll goodness. Cinammon spices and dark honey spread on wheat toast. The finish is sweet and spicy and lingers and it's wonderful. The hype is real. This bourbon is fantastic. No way I'll pay the near $700 secondary price but I'd stock up at or near retail.45.0 USD per PourJack Rose Dining Saloon

Different from anything else I've tried. Enjoyable on occasion. Above average but not overly amazing. Certainly a solid whiskey from the wee Wales.
