Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old
Joseph,
Complex, smooth and reasonably priced. So far, my favourite Scotch.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Burt,
Smoke and peat on the nose and palate, although lighter than some other Islay whiskies. Ron Swanson's favorite, but not mine. Good, but I prefer the Ardbegs and Laphroaigs.
Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Stuart,
Sharp and peaty
The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak
Luke,
Initial burn, but it ends smooth. Not bad.
Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Brenda,
I'm not a huge fan of scotch, because many are too smoky. This one was more flavorful and didn't taste like a liquid campfire.
The Glenrothes 18 Year Old
Will,
Amazing!! Vanilla, raisins, chocolate and a perfect finish... love it!!
Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Matthew,
Good taste, smoky but not overpowering. Doesn’t blow you away but also easy to drink.
Highland Park Magnus
guest,
Very Islay
Wolfburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky
GEORGE,
This is a solid choice to me. Floral notes on the front and a hint of smoke at the end. Looking forward to seeing how Wolfburn's scotch ages in the coming years.
Wemyss Malts The Hive 8 Year Old
Matt,
love it
Johnnie Walker Blue Label
Lawrence,
As with all Johnnies, you still know it’s his and still only 40%. Better than the red and black but you’re only showing off that you have money and want to spend it on a Johnnie Walker. Oak. Spice. Citrus notes. Well balanced. Medium honey finish but gone too fast for the money. Still drinking a Johnnie which, if that is your man, is great.
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
Lawrence,
Still distinctly Johnnie base with spice and citrus. Long finish. Step up from the red though
The Balvenie The Sweet Toast of American Oak 12 YO
Will,
Great Whisky!!
Mackinlay's Shackleton Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
Lawrence,
Extra star because if the story. Something I would break out for friends and a scotch club that didn’t know the story. Moving past the story it is a good scotch. Vanilla. Graham crackers. Apples and oranges.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Lawrence,
Great everyday whisky. Easy drinking. Smooth. Malty. Vanilla. Spices. Medium length
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old
Michael,
This is scotch!! Not heavy on the peat, smooth on tongue, and proof that you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy top shelf scotch
Johnnie Walker The White Walker Edition
Ethan,
Definitely needs to be cold - even cold it tastes like cough syrup
Glenfarclas 21 Year Old
Santiago,
Very nice! Good taste and easy to sip.
Wolfburn Aurora
Corey,
Don’t usually like scotch, due to the campfire taste. This was more fruity than Smokey. I enjoyed it!
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Brandi,
Great for a scotch but a bit too harsh.
Johnnie Walker The White Walker Edition
Brandi,
tasted fairly medicinal, not something I'm a fan of. For a walker, it wasn't bad, but it seems like it was supposed to be special and wasn't.
Compass Box The Peat Monster
Michael,
So so so good...you gotta work up to it though
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Karen,
Currently my favorite Scotch. Well-balanced and delicious.
The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Cask Finish
Daniel,
Vanilla, smoke, oak, spice. Much more flavor than the I thought after pouring into a glass. I liked this straight without ice.
Wolfburn Aurora
Michael,
This came in my 1st sampler , it is a decent midrange scotch
Wolfburn Aurora
Bradley,
Dry full bodied, much better than other scotches I’ve tried
GlenDronach 21 Year Old Parliament
Will,
Full bodied!! Sherry , chocolate and creamy!! Top 5 all-time favorites!!
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Joshua,
A great starter scotch!
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
Joshua,
Not a big fan of Johnnie Walker Black, the smokey taste overpowers any whiskey flavor.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Sei-IS,
I always leave room for me to find that ultimate special dram and Lavavulin gets closest of all the Scottish drinks I have tasted. This is two drinks in one, without a few drops of water it is Smokey with hidden peaty pepper on the edges of the tongue and a nose that simply delays you wanting to taste this drink. Add a few drops of water and the smoothness of the drink rises to the front and suddently the fruit and spices become the reasons to taste this drink. With the right amount of water this becomes cream of the Isley whiskeys lifting out the taste of aromatic tea and raisins on the taste leaving the smoke to lengthen the finish that goes on... and on... and on...
Ardbeg An Oa
Mirosław,
As good and strong in taste as Ardbeg should be ;)
Craigellachie 13 Year Old
Mirosław,
Very nice, delicate.
Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve
Michael,
My go-to Scotch because it is uncomplicated smoothness with a hefty enough palate for me. For me, JW Blue is too far to the right (think "Heineken Light" and JW Black is unbalanced to the left (think "de-sweetened" molasses and licking an ashtray). If you don't like a lot of smoke or fruity variations you might stick to this like I do.
Wolfburn Aurora
Philip,
A very interesting scotch. I picked up on the notes of vanilla, floral, and melon right away. It has certainly expanded my palette and has piqued my interest as to what else it out there. I enjoyed this sample alone while editing a video and I will say the glass emptied too soon.
The Balvenie Scotch Single Malt 17 Year Doublewood
Logan,
Smooth, lots of sherry and little to no smoke. A favorite of mine even though the price point is a little high.
The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak
Jose,
Smooth, sweet sherry tastes
The Balvenie 21 Year Old Port Wood Finish
Glenn,
This bottle speaks for itself. I absolutely love it.
Johnnie Walker Double Black
Michael,
This is the second, and last, version of JW I am going to try. I just can't wrap my head around the blended scotch. It just doesn't have a pleasant finish. I gave it to my son to mix with Coke.
Tullibardine 225 Sauternes Finish Scotch
Pen,
Beautiful smooth ending. A little metallic to start, not the best bouquet.
Port Askaig 110° Proof
Pen,
Very SMOKEY, heavy anise on the backend, very medicinal. Almost like drinking a humidor. Not for me.
Glenfiddich IPA Experiment
Stefanie,
I bought this for a father's day gift so I will assume he liked it.
Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 10 Year Old Heavily Peated
Chris,
Heavily smoky, deep flavor tones that blend together exquisitely. It's definitely got a decent amount of heat, but unlike some liquors where there's a bigger medicinal quality to the heat - this one is a bit more like you are inhaling a smoky peaty campfire.
The Macallan Edition No.4
guest,
Smooth as all get out. Great mouthfeel, sweet, but not too sweet.
Port Askaig 110° Proof
John,
this is definitely a go-to bottle at this price. savory peat with a complex finish of flavors.
Bowmore 18 Year Old
Nic,
This is for the Bowmore 19 Sherry cask
Highland Park The Dark 17 Year Old
James,
Extraordinary taste. You can taste all the flavors with a great finish. Highly recommended even for those non scotch drinkers.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Halldor,
After a few drops of water were added, it was a really nice tasting glass!
Aberlour A'bunadh
Matt,
Heavy sherry influence and the alcohol feel is very forward. Mood related drink for me and not a regular sipping scotch but very good for price.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Susanna,
This was one of the best whiskies I have ever tasted. I would highly recommend this.
Ardbeg Corryvreckan
Zach,
This stuff is delicious. As much funk as a Laphroaig 10, just a lighter mouthfeel. Being that you could get 2 bottles of laphroaig 10 for one bottle of this stuff, I’d go with the Laph, but this is going to be one of my core pete holdings. Mmm mmm mmm
