  1. Octomore 10 Year (2020 Edition)

    Peated Single Malt — Islay, Scotland

    Rich and buttery smooth, so smooth that if you tell me it is a 25 years old whiskey, I wouldn’t say you’re lying. Honestly not as peaty as I expected, and the taste is sweet and savory, reminds me of smoked brisket. The character of the peat is sort of like a combination of laphroaig and ardbeg. Overall a super enjoyable whiskey!

    It’s not the sherry bomb that I expected. There’s not a lot of dark fruit here, but rather light, fruity, and somehow reminds me of honey and jasmine tea. Still, an enjoyable dram.

    It’s sweet and spicy. Sort of like a combination of Clynelish and Dalmore, with their fig, dark fruit, and oaky characters, then adds a dash of chili oil to it. I would say it’s quite an uniquely enjoyable whiskey.

    Light bodied, fruity, smooth, and clean. Got light fig and date flavor to it. Royal Lochnagar’s juice can be found in the higher end Johnnie walkers, so drinking this would definitely remind you some of the characters of JWs. Overall a pleasant daily dram.
  5. Nikka Whisky From the Barrel

    Unlike the Hibiki Harmony, this whiskey has a lot more depth into it. The sweetness and creaminess from the grain whiskey is distinctive, yet not overpowering. The taste of dry fruits is absolutely delicious, and a hint of Miyagikyo add to the complexity to the whiskey. Overall a great value whiskey, and I would pick this over the regular Hibiki Harmony.

    My favorite dram in the edition line up so far. It’s sweat on the palate and mouth watering. It’s not as smooth as some of the other Macallan, but it got some deep dried fruits flavor to it. Compare to the Edition No.4, the finish is sweeter and more enjoyable. Overall, a very good dram imho!

    Batch 009: it’s rich, sweet, smooth, peaty, and it’s cask strength. What more can I ask for?
