Connemara Cask Strength Peated Single Malt
Peated Single Malt — IrelandTastedThis whiskey has a very smokey taste and a strong sharp nose.
Redbreast 15 Year
Single Pot Still — IrelandTastedThis version had a stronger taste with a bit of pepper and a silky feel to it. Interesting that I prefer the 12yr old.
Bushmills 1608 Anniversary Edition
Blended — IrelandTastedWhile I prefer Redbreast for normal Irish enjoyment, this whiskey was simply delicious. It had a great nose, medium peat with a bit of pepper and spice.
Redbreast 12 Year
Single Pot Still — IrelandTastedOne of my favourite Irish whiskeys. It has a strong nose that just pops right out your eyes. It had layers of flavour and the sherry casks give it a bit of sweetness.
Ballantine's 17 Year
Blended — ScotlandTastedA nice blend with a good tang on the tongue. A bit of citrus, some peat and little smoke. It had a nice long finish.
Springbank 18 Year
Peated Single Malt — Campbeltown, ScotlandTastedThis excellent whiskey had a very light peat taste but quite a sharp nose. The taste lingered long and made my tongue tingle for a long time.
Springbank 10 Year
Peated Single Malt — Campbeltown, ScotlandTastedA fantastic whiskey with a rounder taste from the 18yr old. Still had a bit of sharpness and a bit more peat too. A wonderful, long-lasting taste with a bit a pepper, salt, and some smokey goodness.
Mackmyra First Edition
Single Malt — SwedenTastedTried this on our 'Swedish Night' of the Whiskey tasting club. I found it a bit lighter than the others but still a bit sharp. A very decent whiskey at a much better price point.
Forty Creek Barrel Select
Canadian — CanadaTastedI don't drink much rye lately but this Canadian rye was quite tasty. It had a bit of pepper in it and a decent smooth finish.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year
Peated Single Malt — Highlands, ScotlandTastedA very enjoyable drink, lighter than my usual but a good starter for my non-whskey'd friends.
