Laphroaig Cairdeas 2020 Port & Wine Casks
Peated Single Malt — Islay, ScotlandReviewed July 17, 2021This is nice! I like the smokiness of Laphroaig,and I like sherry cask finished Scotch. This is a perfect harmony of the two. The initial nose is smoke, but behind it but not at all hidden is the sherry. Worth a second taste or even a bottle purchase.
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 11, 2021Nice typical bourbon. Spicy, with vanilla notes. Nothing special, but nothing wrong with it either. Some kick on the back end.
Rye — Indiana (bottled in Kentucky), USAReviewed July 11, 2021Some nice spice notes, but not as much of the spice kick one gets from other eyes. Some citrus notes, some minty freshness. Reminds me of peppermint candy a little. Some nice creaminess. Not as woody, with only subtle wood notes. I like it, I’m more of a Scotch person but this is nice.
Glenfiddich 12 Year
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed July 8, 2021 (edited August 4, 2021)This is perfectly nice. It’s not especially interesting, but a good drink. I get sweet notes, vanilla and citrus. The nose is clean and fresh.
Angel's Envy Rye Finished in Caribbean Rum Casks
Rye — USAReviewed January 21, 2021This is unique. I finally figured out what this reminds me of. It was always Christmas (which is when I got it) but it reminds me of my grandmother’s fruitcake, which she always wrapped in cloth soaked in Grand Marnier. I get the baked goods notes and candied fruit notes.
Russell's Reserve 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed January 19, 2021 (edited April 1, 2021)Very flavorful. Orange notes and the cinnamon toast I used to love growing up. Worth getting again.
Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve
Peated Blend — ScotlandReviewed January 16, 2021This is really nice. Lots of citrus and some floral notes. A hint of smoke. The palate is not super complex, neither is it simple. I got it in the 200ml size with other JW. Might get a full sized bottle.
Glenlivet 12 Year Double Oak
Single Malt — Speyside, ScotlandReviewed January 11, 2021Unassuming. Not complex, but tasty. Great for when you are tired and don’t want to work to taste all the notes. For me it pairs well with a good book, it doesn’t distract me from what I am reading, but is a nice accent to the experience.
Chivas Regal 18 Year Gold Signature
Blended — ScotlandReviewed January 11, 2021It is very nice. I get orange notes with smoky spices. It reminds me of Christmas tea. Nice taste, just a little alcohol on the finish. Definitely worth getting some for the right price.
Woodford Reserve Double Oaked
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed January 8, 2021I make chocolate toffee bars every Christmas. These remind me if them, but if eaten in a tobacco shop. This is very flavorful, rich and tasty.
