  1. Maker's 46

    As a longtime Makers fan, I figure I’d try a 375ml bottle of Makers 46. I’m glad I didn’t purchase a full sized bottle. It’s like standard Makers with more wood. The finish is raw 2x4 that I can’t shake. I can’t recommend this whiskey. I will use it in mixed drinks until it’s finished. I love a woody finish, but this flavor is unrefined. It’s like raw lumber.

    ‘Sweet’ is the primary reaction from this bourbon. A great Everyman’s bourbon to appeal to the masses. Not as complex as an Eagle Rare or Weller, but pleasant and approachable. I enjoyed this neat and chilled as it was horribly hot outside.

    Clean with subtle smoke. Coming off a Laphroaig or Kilchoman, this is very mild. Not as syrupy sweet as a Macallan 18, but still much more than JW Black. Worth the premium, I’d say Yes. Overall very balanced. Not challenging, but complex enough to keep my interest.

    So well rounded. Slight hint of salt on the finish. Sweet with a great mid palate. Similar to a Glenmorangie. Very easy to drink. Finish is smooth and sweet. Great value for money too. This is my new highland standard go-to.

    Slight smoke. Decent nose. Solid sweetness and barrel note. Good in a pinch or on a flight.

    Smooth and very vanilla. Clean flavors of corn and caramel. Short but clean finish.

    Sweet corn and caramel. Vanilla and mild spice on the back end. Fantastic in an old fashioned or neat. Easier to drink than Wild Turkey. Better mouth feel and less Rye than Bulleit.
  9. The Glenlivet 12 Year

    Honeysuckle Vanilla and Pear. Sweet but not overly sweet. Nice barrel note at the end. Balanced and simple. Not challenging, but good overall. Good value over JW Black when at a ‘middle of the road’ bar.

    Sweet and easy to drink. Very light smoke. Finish similar to a Speyside. Think Glenmorangie. Great dram for the money. Not overly complex, but delicious.
