    Nose: Pine leaves, lemon zest, tart berries, lavender Palate: Opens on a dry and oily juniper pine note which turns into berries, rosemary, thyme, and then it explodes into citrus. Finish: Lemon cupcakes and lemonade lingering for an eternity This is excellent stuff! I have had this on my wishlist for a long time and I regret waiting so long to try it. Don't make the same mistake as me.

  6. Black Velvet Reserve

    2.75 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Rye spice, caramel, plums, ginger Palate: Brown sugar, molasses, pears, apples Finish: Ginger and some baking spices A very unremarkable whisky. Very smooth and easy to sip, it feels watered down. It's not bad, but it's very faint in both smell and taste and fades quickly afterwards. Good for beginners or as a mixer. Goes well with coke.

    4.5 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Green grapes, banana, creamy malty butterscotch Palate: Plums, oranges, pears, brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg Finish: Ginger, black pepper, honey roasted nuts Friendly but not a pushover. Sweet but not too gentle.

    5.0 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Plums and a chocolate bitterness with an undertone of mint and orange zest Palate: Cinnamon, ginger, cloves, apple sauce Finish: Black pepper, dried apricots, vanilla A very interesting whisky that keeps changing and keeps you guessing. Very rich and potent and has me going back for another sip again and again to see if I've missed something.
  9. Springbank 10 Year

    Peated Single Malt — Campbeltown, Scotland

    Tasted

    5.0 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Sharp and dry peat, salted caramel, grapes, tart apples Palate: Oily peat smoke, pears, ginger, cinnamon and more baking spices Finish: Ash, tobacco, more pears and back to the baking spices as the finish goes on forever. This really is something special and one of my favorites. A whisky that fights you a little before you gain it's trust and unlock it's secrets. I bought a second bottle before there was even a chance that I would run out. It's magnificent.
  10. Black Bottle Blended Scotch

    Peated Blend — Scotland

    Tasted
    3.75
    3.75 out of 5 stars
    Nose: Light smoke, bananas, tart pears Palate: Light touch of peat, pepper, apples, caramel Finish: Coffee, walnuts, orange zest Very easy sipper, doesn't burn much, very good in general for the pricepoint. Now I haven't tried the old bottling, but if it's better than this for the same price I can understand why people are upset about the change. For my experience though, this is a really solid whisky that you should definitely not overlook.
