    maple, oak, laundry soap, resin, corn, peaches, very light and thin; I understand the idea of highlighting the oak variety, but this would be much better with a heavier char

    Musty warehouse, sweet tea, cream soda. This is the best rye I've had in 2019. I would rate it even higher if it was bottled at a higher proof.

    The finish on this has a significant sulfur component that is very off-putting and obscures the wonderful fruit in the base spirit. Yellow Spot is a much superior product.

    This one is pretty rough. My bottle says 60.6%. There is a little bit of strawberry, some vanilla, and a lot of spice. Tastes more like flavored vodka than single malt Scotch. Hopefully it will settle down in a few months.

    This Hampden-sourced heavy rum independently bottled for K&L Wines is all funk, all the time, so be prepared. I get diesel, celery, and pizza, along with more typical rum fruits. The high proof (125) results in great mouthfeel. One of the most interesting rums in my collection.

    I've had this bottle for a few months now, and it isn't improving. Fresh corn and faint caramel on the nose. Corn, peanuts, and craft whiskey (licking a piece of wood) on the palate. Very thin mouthfeel. I'm guessing this is no longer sourced, or there is significant new make whiskey in the blend.

    My local place is selling the limited edition that comes in the "warehouse" case for $38. The Distiller review is a spot-on description. The 10 is lighter and has more stone fruits than the Uigeadail, which I really like, and I wish the proof was slightly higher, but for the price, there isn't a better Scotch. I had Rollercoaster a couple of months ago, and that one takes the "10" flavor profile and bumps everything up in intensity. But you will pay 10x or more if you are lucky enough to come across a bottle.

    Fresh malted grain, cereal, white chocolate, a little too sweet

    Lots of stone fruit and some cherry vanilla, but very thin mouthfeel. Only a little of the fruit lingers on the relatively short finish. Would be better if the proof was bumped up a notch or two. Not a good value.
