  1. Glenmorangie A Tale of Cake

    Single Malt — Highlands, Scotland

    Tasted
    4.5
    4.5 out of 5 stars
    Read many favorable reviews and lucked out and picked up a bottle. Up front, I think Glenmorangie is brilliant with this one, as they have created a whisky that will be exciting and approachable by the ladies, both in terms of the taste and the packaging. Having said that, this is an excellent dram, that will not only appeal to the fairer sex, but even seasoned male aficionados will enjoy its complexity and unique flavor profile. In particular, the mouthfeel is full, heavy and creamy, which is a terrific complement to the nose and taste. As much as I love my smoky Islays, this one is truly genius on multiple levels. Kudos, Glenmorangie! SUPPLEMENT - Did another more formal tasting with friends last night, and highly recommend that everyone do this: The host had us do a tasting of some Tokaji wine. Then we cleansed our palate and did a tasting of Cake. It was an excellent way to do it, and one could really get a better sense of the Tokaji flavors, etc. Highly recommend!

  3. Loch Lomond 12 Year

    I first rolled the LL12 out at a tasting with friends. After 20+ years of tastings, this one shocked us all. If one were blindfolded and knew nothing about it, one would think that this is an exceptional $100 bottle of whisky. I won't go through the tasting details here, just know this: my friends rushed out and cleaned out the local supply the next day. Weeks later, we did a head-to-head between the LL12 and the LL15. Don't waste the extra money on the 15, as it is good, but the 12 is better. I would score it a 4 for nose, taste, finish, etc., but for value it bumps up to a 4.5. It is the BEST value in the market at present, with nary a close second.

  4. Lagavulin Offerman Edition 11 Year

    Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

    Tasted
    5.0
    5.0 out of 5 stars
    Up front: Like many people, Lagavulin 16 and Distiller's Edition are two of my favorites. So I was excited to do a head-to-head tasting between those two and the Offerman 11. Unbelievably, everyone I was with scored the Offerman 11 as our favorite. It is Lagavulin+ and has an amazing balance of sweet, savory and smoky. It is highly underrated, and if you can get a bottle, grab it while you can. You won't be disappointed!
