Mezcal Marca Negra Ensamble
Mezcal Joven — Oaxaca, MexicoReviewed June 5, 2023This is earthy, herbal, spicy, smoky goodness!! The nose is herbal and earthy with bit of a nice burnt tire note. Nice oily mouthfeel with a spicy, peppery delivery and moderate to heavy smokiness. The finish is medium to long
High West Double Rye
Rye — (bottled in) Utah, USAReviewed May 28, 2023Nose: like an apple pie with a good amount of cinnamon. Palate: spicy with apples and pears. Nice flavor character but suffers from low ABV. A barrel proof version would be wonderful.
Edradour Caledonia 12 Year
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed May 25, 2023This is the sherried scotch of choice. If you are looking for that old style deep rich dark fruit sherry character with some basement funk in the background, this is it. Nose and palate are consistent and full of dates, figs, raisens, plums, prunes, tabacco and an almost indescribable backbone of warehouse/basement funk that gives it much more depth than a current Glendronach 15 or Arran Sherry that come off much more bright.
Fortaleza Blanco Tequila
Tequila Blanco — Tequila Valley, Jalisco, MexicoReviewed May 14, 2023Heavy on the minerality and a bit soapy on the finish.
Don Amado Largo Mezcal
Mezcal Joven — Oaxaca, MexicoReviewed May 14, 2023I get a whole lot of dark chocolate and minerality. Interesting, but not interesting enough to buy a bottle.
Kilkerran Heavily Peated batch 5
Single Malt — campbeltown, ScotlandReviewed April 26, 2023If you see a bottle of this let me know and I’ll come buy it. Ok, this has very much the same nutty, peaty character of the Ardbeg Corryvreckan but with less of the peppery notes and a long finish. I’d rate this higher than the Corryvreckan but below a Laphroag 10 Cask Strength.
Deanston 12 Year
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandReviewed April 26, 2023 (edited May 16, 2023)The neck pour on this bottle was not great. I was a bit disappointed to be honest and the finish was disappointingly short. But get it down to the shoulder and this becomes a wonderful whisky full of honey and vanilla and malty goodness with a medium to long finish. This is a great pour for a beginner or an experienced whisky lover.
Compass Box Orchard House
Blended Malt — ScotlandReviewed April 26, 2023Ive got the second edition bottling with a touch more Clynelish in the blend. This is just fruity and wonderful!! I get a touch of butterscotch with the plethora of fruit on both nose and palate or it might be apricot mixed in with the obvious apple, pear and citrus. This is readily available, relatively affordable and wonderful. A definite recommendation for a scotch lover or even someone who isnt that into whisky.
Tobermory 12 Year
Single Malt — Islands, ScotlandReviewed April 10, 2023 (edited April 11, 2023)Im going to start with a controversial statement…..I think this is a better whisky than the Ledaig 10. On the nose it herbal and floral with green apples and pears in the background. Its a great nose and makes me want to keep my nose in the glass to pick out more and more…. On the palate it has a fairly oily mouthfeel. The flavors are herbal with underlying green apple and pear and barley sugar….maybe a bit of kiwi in there too. A good balance of herbal and sweet that makes it very moreish. If you see this pick it up!!
Gracias a Dios Mezcal Cuishe
Mezcal Joven — Oaxaca, MexicoReviewed April 1, 2023Subdued. Not much smokiness. Not much spiciness. But quite a bit of minerality.
