Port Askaig 110° Proof
Daniel,
Wow, harsh. Notes of iodine and charcoal. Not likely getting more.
Laphroaig 10 Year Old
guest,
Smoky goodness.
Alexander Murray Monumental Blend 18 Year Old
Chris,
Nice and sweet with a hint of whisky
Port Askaig 110° Proof
Reese,
Have had many peated whiskeys, this is excellent!
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
guest,
Nose: rich leather, smoke, and some melon Extremely smooth, finish of oak without too much tingle.
Alexander Murray Monumental Blend 18 Year Old
Reed,
Sweet and smooth
SIA Blended Scotch Whisky
Emily,
Delicious, very smooth, vanilla flavor.
Alexander Murray Bon Accord
Reed,
Tons of honey up front, almost mead-ish to me. Spice at the end.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Qi,
Peat it
Laphroaig 10 Year Old
guest,
Far too peaty. Just not my cup of tea.
Alexander Murray Bon Accord
Scott,
I’m not one who can express the nuances of it taste like this or has notes of that, The only barometer I use is whether or not it tastes good to me or not. This one was taster #5 in my Flaviar Scotch advent calendar. This one tastes great to me, I REALLY enjoy it!
The Glenrothes 12 Year Old
Roman,
Love this. Has a bit of a sweet note and goes back very smooth. At the price it is at the top of my list.
The Glenlivet 12 Year Old
Kenneth,
This is my first bottle of Scotch, definitely my favorite whisky so far.
SIA Blended Scotch Whisky
John,
Above average for a scotch (I'm more of a bourbon fan) sweet tasting
Craigellachie 23 Year Old
Mark,
A very smooth great tasting scotch without the smoke...so good!
Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or
guest,
Solid whiskey: good balance of honey/sweet and spice. Will enjoy with good friends.
Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old
Matt,
Delicious, deep, complex Scotch. The palate hits with peat and brine. A swish opens up dried fruits and honey, with a delicious, dark fruit finish that hangs around long after your last sip. Take your time with this one and enjoy it slowly. A truly fantastic, unique spirit.
Johnnie Walker The White Walker Edition
Earl,
JW Green Label is my usual go-to for blended scotch, so my expectations may be out of line for this $25 bottle. The best thing about this JW offering is, unfortunately, the bottle itself. The contents of said bottle taste like a sweet-and-sour blend of second-hand near-vinegar, reminiscent of metallic Red Label (that is, if my dog had pissed menstrual blood into it).
The Glenlivet 14 Year Cognac Cask Selection
guest,
Don’t like the cognac finish. Unlikable taste I can’t place.
Laphroaig Triple Wood
Susanna,
The best Laphroaig I have ever tasted. I would certainly buy another Bottle of this. It was really worth tasting. The taste was not as distinct as in the original one, it was better.
SIA Blended Scotch Whisky
Ben,
Has a nice mellow flavor. Some definite sweetness, but that releases to a smokey finish.
Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old
Antti,
It is a very good, complex, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has a complex birth with notes of fresh blossom, heather, hibiscus, cherry juice, warm toffee, honey, almond cookies & peat smoke; while a complex & creamy life adds notes of stewed fruits, espresso, citrus zest, toffee, cinnamon & allspice; that leads to a long & rich death with notes of herbs & a hint of peat.
Kilchoman Sanaig
Larry,
I'm a fan of smoky, peaty scotches, like Lagavulin and Laphroigh, but my immediate reaction to this scotch was that it was way too strong on the nose. It almost burned my nostrils when I took a good whiff and that was a real turnoff. When I added about 1/2 an ice cube it took on a whole new life and the flavors really came out. It does pair well with a strong cheese however. For a few dollars more I will probably stick with my favorite....Lagavulin 16 yr. You just can't beat it for the price!
Compass Box Hedonism
Michael,
This is a super smooth scotch blend the flavor profile is somehow bold and smooth at the same time.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
guest,
Rich Islay. Smoky and smell of iodine. Long, minty finish.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
guest,
Amazing. Melon nose with smoke. A much lighter, fruitier Islay. Tingly mouth finish of mint.
The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak
Michael,
All Macallans are my favorite Scotch, but for the price, very smooth and great finish.
Game of Thrones House Greyjoy Talisker Select Reserve
Alex,
What I like to see in a scotch and an excellent tribute to the drowned god. If you like smoky and peated scotches from the Islay region like I do this one’s for you!
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Kyle,
Almost overwhelming flavor!
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Caitlin,
I like it okay when I take a first sip, but the lingering sweetness is too much for me. Too sweet and sticks around too long. Husband likes it better. Says he wouldn't mind having a bottle, although it isn't his first choice.
Glenkinchie 12 Year Old
Caitlin,
Inoffensive and accessible for someone new to Scotch. Kind of boring?
Bowmore 18 Year Old
Mark,
Really nice, the smoke is balanced and a smooth finish. I will buy again.
The Macallan 12 Year Old Double Cask
guest,
Love the nose - chocolate sweetness. Taste is really good, my favorite non-Islay widely.
The Glenlivet 12 Year Old First Fill
Richard,
I am primarily a bourbon man. So I am new to the scotch tasting experience. I find this Scotch to be very enjoyable. It is smooth and has a nice balance between smoke and Peat. It mixes well and makes a very good godfather. I look forward to tasting in testing more of the Scotch like this. It has a very nice finish. I have also enjoyed Dalwhinnie And we be happy with either one of these.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Richard,
Thoroughly enjoyed the scotch. Very smooth. Nice touch of peat on the finish.
Wolfburn Northland
Matthew,
Color is a light straw. Nose starts with subtle peat, with a mildly sweet malty and fruity background. First sip is more peaty than the nose lets on, with a nice peat spice and a moderately malty backbone. Sweetness level is subdued by the spice. The fruit notes from the nose are harder to pick out over the spice, but are still present. Mouthfeel is not too thin or oily. Finish is a moderate linger of the peat spice with a touch of cocoa. Overall, nothing noteworthy, but also nothing bad or offensive. A good example of a lightly peated (from the barrel in this case) Scotch with a nice malty backbone.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Alex,
It's a good blend of scotch, but sometimes doesn't sit well with me depending on my mood.
Wolfburn Northland
Julie,
Very rough.
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old
Jeffrey,
The 14 yr old is not nearly as good as the 12. In my opinion they ruined the Quinta Ruban with its new recipe. Finish is not as good and it has more of an alcohol flavor.
Alexander Murray Laphroaig 12 Year Old
Travis,
Good peat but seems thinner than laphroaig
Alexander Murray Monumental Blend 18 Year Old
Travis,
Lingers, mellower than the 7 year but still spicy and not at all mellow. Bite really overwhelms the caramel undertone.
Alexander Murray Bon Accord
Travis,
Pretty harsh and young, spicy, didn’t taste the sweetness, vanilla or caramel notes.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Chris,
Clean, light flavor with sweet subtle vanilla, floral nose and pleasant finish with no sharpness. Great value.
Game of Thrones House Stark Dalwhinnie Winter's Frost
Robert,
Pretty good stuff. Not too smoky. No particular flavor really stands out but all blend together well for a smooth slightly smoky finish.
Port Askaig 110° Proof
Matt,
Boozey. Strong. Medicinal in a way I don't like. Overpowering. Weirdly, intensely and confusingly vegetal. Good brine on the nose, though. Smokey and ashy. Way down, past the alcohol burn, there is butterscotch. Not the best from Islay. This is a young and hopelessly wild whiskey. Hard to find something and hold on to it in this. It's rough, rowdy, immature and punchy. Like a frat party in grandpa's liquor cabinet. I'll spend my money elsewhere.
Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair
Bruce,
Smooth. Easy to drink. Good “every day” Scotch
The Glenrothes 12 Year Old
Stephen,
Very smooth great for sipping.
Compass Box Hedonism
Keith,
Honestly, I was blown away by this scotch! The aroma is rich and warm, almost like a Crème Brule. The flavors are balanced and complete. The finish is silky and smooth. Almost too easy to drink!
The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak
Nathan,
Smooth finish. Hits all the right notes. Fantastic.
