    Brown sherry color. Nose is brown sugar, cherries , maple, vanilla and Madeira. The taste is leathery, woody and peppery. Medium finish. I tried barrel 4747. Overall, it lacks complexity which is why I end up buying Booker's when I want good Beam.

    Tawny color. Floral notes like perfume, fabric softener, then moving on to fruit, but not the raisins I was expecting, but rather solvent like paint. The taste is very winey, Chardonnay comes to mind. Then we're back to paint notes with a salty finish. Overall, delicious, but then I'm a big Islay fan.

    Bright reddish brown color. Rich chocolate and sweet leather nose. Some real nice complexity on the nose. Taste of dried fruit initially, then sour cherries. Once again, I feel like I'm dealing with a very complex whiskey that will get more interesting over time. This is definitely wonderful. I sampled batch 2D bottle 298.

    Deep redwood color. Nose of burnt brown sugar, pepper and chocolate. Honey, heavy spice and wood on the tongue. A leathery finish, longer than I expected it to be. it's fun to drink a style of whiskey made at the beginning of prohibition , even though I suspect it's much much better than the whiskey sold at the time. Definitely something fun to share with friends at a party. I give it 3.5 stars.

    Straw color. Big orange notes on the nose. Fresh fruit initially. Long alcoholic finish. If you are a GLENMORANGIE fan this is for you.

    Deep amber rose color. Honey and floral notes on the nose. nice legs given that I understand it's a blend of six through 12 year whiskeys. It comes in super hot. Much hotter than you'd expect from a 116 proof whiskey. Obviously, that's going to put a lot of bitterness on the tongue. I can still pick up the wood. This one really benefits from water. Very much reminds me of a Woodford Double Oak. If you're a fan of whiskeys from heavily charred barrels this is a good choice for you. I prefer a lighter char.

    I picked this up at Gatwick Airport at World of Whiskies. Rosie straw color. Heavy smoke and barbecue on the nose. Very reminiscent of an Ardbeg Uigeadail, but bigger, or perhaps one of their Octomore whiskies. I feel the cognac barrels add some roundness to the peat note. I'm not picking up true fruit notes but maybe that is the barbecue I'm picking up. Although there is no age statement, the legs seem to indicate at least some age on it. Sweet smoke on the tongue at first, followed by big tobacco notes. A big long finish. Definitely benefits from the extra alcohol content. Doesn't benefit from the water at least for me. It was worth 100 bucks, and worth the premium over the Uigeadail. It's an outstanding Islay product.
