Torabhaig 2017 The Legacy Series
Single Malt — Skye, ScotlandTasted March 25, 2021Subtle. Lemon drop candy. Sea spray. Light smoky peat. Glad to have found this and look forward to their future releases.55.0 USD per Bottle
Weller Special Reserve
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted March 23, 2021I like it for the price, although not complex or especially interesting. Vanilla, honey, orange, and leather on the finish. A little too sweet for me as a regular sipper.23.0 USD per Bottle
Jameson Irish Whiskey
Blended — IrelandTasted March 19, 2021Powdered sugar, thin, fairly inoffensive.
Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition
Peated Blend — ScotlandTasted February 28, 2021Unexpectedly flavorful for a Cutty Sark product. It reminds me a lot of Loch Lomond 12, with mild peat and a little funk that makes it interesting.32.0 USD per Bottle
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted February 24, 2021Candied bacon, sweet smoke. Fabulous! This may cause me to adjust down my ratings of other whiskeys.71.0 USD per Bottle
Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USATasted February 8, 2021The scarcity of this bourbon made me expect something better on my first taste and left me disappointed. Having come back to it later, I think it's decent, and maybe even good for the price. I always tend to pick up peanut and cherry in most bourbons, and I don't care for the peanut taste. This one has more cherry, wood, and leather, so I prefer this to the more peanutty bourbons.29.0 USD per Bottle
Stranahan's Blue Peak
American Single Malt — Colorado, USATasted January 23, 2021Tasted side-by-side with Balcones Lineage. Lighter, with some tropical notes. More like a Speyside scotch, compared to the Highland-type profile of the Lineage. I prefer the richness of the Lineage, but the Blue Peak is nice too.41.0 USD per Bottle
Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTasted January 1, 2021Spicy, sherry, a little cherry cough syrup, and hot.
Lagavulin Offerman Edition 11 Year
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandTasted December 24, 2020Savory, peaty, briny; some sweet, but not a lot.
Corn — Texas, USATasted December 3, 2020Smoky campfire, grilled corn, peaches. I like it, but definitely have to be in the mood for it.
