Bunnahabhain Toiteach
Ilona,
Best smoky scotch. Smooth with a wonderfully long finish.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Erin,
Love the peatiness
Dewar's White Label
Christopher,
Virtually undrinkable. Lot's of peat and tastes of contaminated water.
Chivas Regal 12 Year Old
Christopher,
Good base flavor, but too much peat.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Erin,
Really like the smokiness
Compass Box Oak Cross
Neil,
mmmm
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Tyler,
A classic. My go-to whisky really, if I had to be stuck on an island with just one bottle in particular.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label
Jared,
It's funny that this is more expensive than green label, which I prefer over this one. Perhaps I need an opportunity to cross-compare them next to each other, which I haven't had the opportunity to do yet, but I think I prefer the more cask and woody flavor in the green label compared to this. I enjoy the smoothness and aroma of this, but the flavor doesn't quite live up to the price for me.
Compass Box Oak Cross
Lawrence,
Toffee and oak notes. Spice and vanilla on the tongue
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Colin,
Very smooth, very peaty/smoky but not overwhelmingly so
Dewar's White Label
SCOTT,
Every day Scotch with no bite!
Compass Box Oak Cross
Maryjo,
Smooth and the best taste of scotch I've had in awhile. 12/2020
The Naked Grouse
Daniel,
Notes of rusty radiator. Gross. Ew.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Erin,
Literally my favorite scotch of all time so I'm a bit biased here. We did a blind tasting with Kilchoman Machir bay, Laphroaig Select, and Bruichladdich Port Charlotte and of course this lovely bottle. On taste Lagavulin 16 came in first place. On nose it came 3rd (Kilchoman was 1st for nose). Laphroaig Select came 2nd on both taste and nose if you're interested...
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Ryan,
one of the worst whiskey's I've ever had. Very difficult to drink and smells terrible.
Oban 14 Year Old
Daniel,
Fantastic single malt. Nice understated peat flavor, smoke and citrus fruit. Delicious.
Aberlour 12 Year Old
Jim,
A sweet honey and fruit nose with vanilla wafts. Smooth taste and mild spice finish. Not much smoke in this dram. Easy sipping scotch.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
guest,
I love the smoky smell and flavor. It’s like a campfire by the ocean in a glass. Smooth sipping and tons of character. This is my favorite whisky.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Raveesh,
A very light easy to sip whiskey.
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
Josh,
Slight smoke and molasses on the nose. taste, is mostly charred wood. Finish is a little peppery. overall fine, I feel like it's the Tullamore dew of scotch. Simple and drinkable, but not complex.
Aberlour 12 Year Old
Steve,
Very smooth and not "harsh" at all. No as peaty as some, but that's ok, I very much like the sweet, smooth taste of this one!
Tomintoul 16 Year Old
Christopher,
This is the smoothest whisky I have had by a large margin
Talisker 10 Year Old
Lawrence,
Talisker 10 never disappoints. Pleasant dram and carries the day for musing and recovery!
Jura 10 Year Old
Vincent,
Love it
Glengoyne 10 Year Old
Mark,
Light and flavorful, but nothing special. Not likely to buy again.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Christopher,
The greatest standard Scotch? I think so.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Christopher,
Another classic Islay.
Laphroaig 10 Year Old
Christopher,
A classic peat bomb. A bit fiery and intensely smoky, but with pleasing malt beneath.
Oban 14 Year Old
Christopher,
One of the essential Scotches. A nice middle ground between peaty and malty expressions.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Jim,
Really smooth and sweet honey. Vanilla with some apple for a crisp start. Some light fruit on the nose. Clean end with little to no spice. A really nice dram.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Elijah,
Salt, smoke, caramel, vanilla nose. Moderate plus peat, heavy smoke but quick subsiding on palate. Slight iodine that fades into fresh mint.
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
Brian,
Smooth
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Randy,
One of my favorites
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Dax,
This was the first peated Scotch I ever had, not a big fan of smokiness in my whisky. I would never buy this again or reccomend it to anyone who doesn't like the taste of an old charcoal grill.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Eric,
Awesome! Just the right amount of peat!
Aberfeldy 12 Year Old
Ray,
Really like this Scotch. I have found that the 12 year to be my sweet spot. Very smooth, so smooth I bought 3 bottles. I don’t have one of those discriminating pallets but I know what I like.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
David,
Not for the uninitiated when it comes to smoke and peat, but once you learn to appreciate it, this is a bottle you must try. Good strong smell of smoke and peat, and tastes even better going down. This is one to always keep stocked in your home bar.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
David,
Love this bottle. Not for the uninitiated to smoke and eat, but once you are you will LOVE this Scotch ! This is a bottle I will always have in my bar! Not heavy, but strong smoke and peat that goes down with a smile!
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
David,
Nice smell of light smoke and licorice.. smooth drink with no harshness, goes down nice and smooth. A light smokiness to it for those just getting into smoke.
Ledaig 10 Year Old
David,
Good nose - can smell the smoke and peat as though I was touring Islay. Tastes of light smokiness, peat, sweetness, and fruit. Has a mild harshness/hit to the mouth with a nice smokey aftertaste. Recommend it and enjoy it!
Arran 10 Year Old Whisky
Nick,
Shaved coconut, citrus and green fruits, and hazelnut. Pretty well balanced but not very complex. Great malty finish. I ordered this expecting to receive the repackaged Arran 10 but received a bottling from 2017. Take it for what you will. I’d recommend this for its price point and 46% abv bottling to any novice or intermediate scotch drinker.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Brian,
This is my go-to Scotch. Perfect amount of peat.
Dewar's White Label
Ben,
I'd rate this scotch right down the middle given the affordability of a bottle and that it is a decent sipping scotch on a budget. Not terrible, but not great either.
The Dalmore King Alexander III
Nick,
A ton of complexity! Great for intermediate or experienced scotch drinker. So much going on in the glass credit to the 6 different casks at play. The nose alone is exceptional. Always find something new when I come back to this dram. Almost perfect. One mark off for price and ABV.
Aberlour 12 Year Old
Nick,
Very soft and sweet in the mouth. Not much complexity, but dangerously easy sipper. Good price for 12yo with both sherry and bourbon casks in play.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Chris,
Smooth, smokey, everything a Scotch should be with none of the heavy aftertaste.
The Naked Grouse
Bob,
This is a surprisingly nice Scotch. I say that, in part, because I got the bottle from Flaviar for free and my experience has been that the free bottles tend to be less than spectacular. This one, however, is a very nice sipping whiskey. Sweet and smoky as the flavor profile suggests. I'll be keeping a bottle of this in my home bar.
Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or
Russ,
Don't buy again. not pleasant on the pallet.
The Glenlivet 12 Year Old
Russ,
Pedestrian. OK when nothing else is available.
The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak
Russ,
Better than Mac 18.
