    Really quite rubbish. Standard marketing back story spiel for a harsh, thin, grainy, estery mess, cloaked with some kind of Islay in the mix to trick you into thinking its OK. It's a JW red label pretending to be black, choose black every time.

    Nice, very smooth, good rye flavours, only downside is short finish.

    Find this grainy, estery and uninspiring. Not as nice as their other expressions.

    My bird likes it, so it must be good. Then my dad downed the rest of the bottle so she couldn't have anymore. Nice! Has a lovely approachable amount of smoke that isn't offensive, and a sweet, warming, well rounded depth of flavour.
  6. Lagavulin Distillers Edition

    So rich. Still a peat bomb but a great mix of sweet and salty. On the nose, under the smoke, there's caramelised raisins and cakeyness. On the palate, tonnes of saltyness wrapped with caramel. Really long, salty dry finish with underlying sweetness. Very nice.

    Very smooth, lots going on, revisitable.

    Loads of moist ginger cake on the nose, smooth mouthfeel, very fruity flavours, spicy, slightly citrus finish which sadly leaves too soon. Good entry dram for whisky newcomers, would be legendary if the finish was a bit longer and more interesting.

    Heaven in a glass, developing flavour with about 5 levels of awesome,
  10. Hillrock Estate Seasoned Oak Cask Finished Double Cask Rye

    This is an exemplary rye, tonnes of depth of flavour but somehow tames the normal rye firey, spice overload. Outstanding.
