    A lot of dark caramel and vanilla notes on the nose. The taste has a bit of an alcoholic burn but really doubles down on that great caramel taste that stays around in the finish with a bit of strawberry

    Such a beautiful whiskey. I constantly get reminded of shortbread and berries and cream. It rounds it out perfectly. I thought I was an Islay guy for the longest time but I’m starting to become a convert to the Irish

    This is definitely a man’s bourbon. Lots of oakiness and leather up front with a bit of vanilla sweetness backing it up. The taste lingers on the tongue for quite a while before opening up into some beautiful cherry notes
  4. Buffalo Trace Bourbon

    I'm getting a lot of orange and peach flavors on the nose, really pleasant and welcoming with a small hint of leather. Some good spice and caramel notes on the palatte that lead into a really nice leather, ginger finish with a hint of vanilla. Definitely a great everyday drink

    I'm finding some interesting nutty, almost salty notes today with this dram. It still has that traditional creamy, blueberry note but there's some more stuff revealing itself. A really creamy fruity note on the palate with a really lovely dark caramel finish. It honestly reminds me of the milk left over after you eat Fruity Pebbles if you added whiskey to it. Turns out that's something I really needed in my life.
  6. Nelson’s Green Brier Tennessee Whiskey

    Tennessee — Tennessee , USA

    Such a sweet, welcoming whiskey with lovely hints of vanilla, black tea, and caramel. A little spice rounds it out and welcomes you into this original Tennessee Whiskey. Really nice fruity notes on the palate with an almost chocolate-cinnamon finish. The Green Brier Distillery is always a must-go when I head to Nashville.

    I love a good challenge from a whiskey and Laphroaig is always a good challenge with hints of seawater and rubber, lending itself to a smoky finish that’s hard to shake. May not be my favorite Islay but it’s fantastic for what it is.

    A lot of woodiness on the nose with some nice hints of black tea and cherry. Maybe even a little banana. Lots of that oak and some chocolate (?) notes on the tasting with a finish that's spicy and almost reminiscent of cherrywood. Not enjoying this dram as much as usual. Not sure why.

    Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

    I got the most oddly specific sense memory while drinking this... but it's eating dinner at a Western Sizzlin (a buffet chain in the Southeast) while at the beach. I've never experienced Ardbeg being this light before. Usually, I get punched in the face with some vicious smoke and meaty flavors, but this time it eased up quite a bit. A lot more lightness on the nose with some almost beachy smells coming in. A lot of that saltwater, briny smell. The taste brings forth a bit more of that bacon bits flavor I'm used to, but I keep finding this almost lemon-apple note throughout this tasting. I'm not sure what it is. A really interesting dram, that's to be sure.
