Highland Park Viking Pride 18 Year Old
Brennan,
Wonderful, complex but approachable, great smoke. If it wasn't so hard to get, I'd say it's one of my top 5 scotches.
Bowmore 12 Year Old
Evan,
I love a pleated whiskey and found this one to be mildly peated. Very tasty and balanced. Highly recommend.
The Balvenie The Sweet Toast of American Oak 12 YO
Toby,
Very tasty! Don’t know all the official language of an official reviewer but it was.l very enjoyable with my cigar on the porch of my saloon!
Talisker 10 Year Old
Adam,
Mine tasted more like a night out on bonfire night. Strong smell and taste of smoke and peat, not exactly unpleasant however preferred mixed.
The Glenlivet 18 Year Old
Daniel,
Oh man smooth. Delicious. Oak, spice, sherry, and smooth.
Arran 10 Year Old Whisky
Ann,
I enjoyed this the most of the tasting box- but still not really a favorite
The Glenrothes 12 Year Old
Michelle,
Very light
Port Askaig 110° Proof
Steve,
WOW! Nice, strong peaty flavor with a kick. Fairly smooth for the high ABV, and long lasting smoke and charcoal flavors.
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban 14 Year Old
Kent,
Probably my favorite Glenmorangie. I keep going back to this bottle for more!
Isle Of Skye 12 Year Old
Matthew,
Color is amber. Nose starts with mild peat smoke. Sifting through the peat, layers of fruit and vanilla appear. Finally, notes of malt appear. First sip is creamy in texture, with mild peat smoke and spice, with vanilla and subtle dried fruit in the background. On further sips, notes of milk chocolate are apparent. Finish is short, with the peat and a little fruit just barely lingering. Overall, nothing amazing, and definitely could use more finish, but for the price, this is a solid value.
The Glenlivet 18 Year Old
Darren,
Very smooth and classy
The Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak
Johnathon,
This was my first taste of the Sherry whisky’s, and I see no reason to try any other brand for comparison sake.
Compass Box Hedonism
Shannon,
Liked the coconut, but the finish was a bit bitter for my taste
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Carroll,
My go to single malt is the Dalwhinnie 15. Love it neat, or with a single large ice cube, though it is almost a shame to dilute it. The nice notes of smokey honey and vanilla seem to increase as the ice melts. A scotch for even those who think they don't like scotch.
Talisker Storm
Johnathon,
This whisky quickly jumped into my top 3 favorites!
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
guest,
Gentle smoke. Easy sipper
Alexander Murray Bon Accord
Nathan,
This bottle reminds me of a slightly anemic Glenfiddich Select. The floral fruit tries to give it depth, but falls short of the appeal of the classic flavors. For the price I'll stick with the original Glenfiddich.
Alexander Murray Monumental Blend 18 Year Old
Nathan,
What a lovely, sweet and complex blended Scotch! From the first sip I knew I'd be back to taste again and again... Smelling lightly of fruit or berries with a good, mild Oak note. The tart fruit flavor melts into deep, sugary caramel as it lingers on the tongue, and a hint of spice tantalizes the senses with a luxuriously long finish. The first and still the only blended Scotch I enjoy sipping unaccompanied.
Alexander Murray Laphroaig 12 Year Old
Nathan,
I was excited to try this Scotch, until I smelled it and the smoke was so overwhelming that it reminded me of burnt olives... The flavor didn't change my mind a lot either. It was like sucking ash from a still-lit camp fire. I have a friend that likes VERY smoky Scotch and even he was overwhelmed by it. I'm sure it's a fine Scotch and has many admirers, but unfortunately, I'm not one of them.
Glenmorangie Signet
Mark,
Smooth, dark, truly very involving.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Oystein,
A wery good dram!
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Oystein,
This is a whisky I learned to like at a pub in Glenrothes together with a friend of mine tjat at the time was the Purshasing Manager at the Tullis Russel papermill. This is some good stuff! The first one of the day (or evening, if you go for the more traditionally acceptable, I poor about 1/5 with pure luke warm still water. Heavenly!
The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask
Damian,
My go to, very smooth with a strong Carmel finish. Exceptional dram!
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Robert,
Definitely peat on the nose. Nice amber color. Sweet taste of honey on first sip with a slight peat aftertaste. Adding a few drops of water really intensified both the aroma and taste. Nice burn to warm you up.
Port Askaig 110° Proof
James,
Peat is well blended into a balanced flavoring in the mouth
Aberlour 12 Year Old
Kevin,
Smooth and mild
Tullibardine 225 Sauternes Finish Scotch
Steve,
Love the combination of citrus and spice, yet still a smooth and sweet finish. Not too harsh, one of my favorites actually. Pleasantly surprised with this being included in my tasting box!!!
Deanston Virgin Oak
tapani,
Kannattava ostos!!
Wolfburn Northland
KD,
Light Scotch - chocolate and peat undertones Hated first sip but second opened up a bit. Not a favorite but an okay one off.
Game of Thrones House Stark Dalwhinnie Winter's Frost
Robert,
Light amber color. Smell of vanilla not particularly strong. Definitely taste of vanilla with fruit notes, pear and apple. No smoke whatsoever. Easy to drink. Water does intensify the flavors making it more tasty. Good everyday dram.
Game of Thrones The Night's Watch Oban Bay Reserve
Robert,
Sweet stuff. I’m glad I didn’t need to “take the black” to get some of this. A little smoky with honey and orange. Drank it while having some dark chocolate. Great combination.
Johnnie Walker The White Walker Edition
Austin,
Tried this as my first scotch and lemme tell ya I was mixed on it. I am not a big scotch guy I found out but this is definitely a interesting option out there and the bottle alone demands respect and priceability.
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
tapani,
Aivan huippu hyvää!!
Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Scottish Barley
Michael,
I very much enjoyed this one
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Robert,
Liked it very much. I don't mind a little peat and did not feel this one was peaty at all. Certainly no iodine. Found it quite balanced with sweetness prominent and fruity notes. To me a rich scotch. Those I shared it with also were impressed, except one or two who I guess prefer true Speysides that have no hint of smoke whatsoever. Me, I like a little complexity.
The Macallan Rare Cask
Eduardo,
Delicious nose, chocolate, dried fruits, walnuts, vanilla and a bit of oak. A warming sensation equilibrated with a sweet note in the mouth and a long finish. Really nice
Laphroaig Triple Wood
Scott,
Loved it super smooth love the Peat !
Glenfiddich IPA Experiment
guest,
Work taster
Highland Park Viking Honour 12 Year Old
Erin,
The smell is great, but too much bite
Game of Thrones House Stark Dalwhinnie Winter's Frost
Nathan,
A refreshingly crisp and young Scotch with bright floral and fruit notes offer a promising finish. A flavor of apple and spices follow, teasing the senses a bit. The finish is medium length and is SPICY. Not in a powerful flavor way, but in a literal unexpected HEAT way... Not an unpleasant amount of heat, but very hot. The kind of Scotch I'd keep in a small flask and carry with me on a chill-your-bones kind of winter camp out to have a sip of around a roaring fire to keep the chill away. I hope more bottles become available, as it may become a favorite.
The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask
Dan,
Great drink. Love the rum infusion.
Kilchoman Machir Bay
Melissa,
Surprisingly sweet in the beginning with a very hot finish. Wasn’t expecting that!
Kilchoman Sanaig
Melissa,
Complex and interesting. Has a hot, woody flavor.
Bunnahabhain Stiùireadair
Mark,
Seems to try to straddle the line between Islay smoke and Highland mild. Pleasant enough, but misses the mark for me. I’d prefer heavy peat or heather and honey, not an awkward blend of the two.
Kilchoman Sanaig
Scott,
Strongly smoky and peaty, with a little subtle sweetness out of this very nice offering from Kilchoman. A little more robust and powerful than something like the standard Ardbeg and not as much of that pure smoke flavor. A little richer and full bodied.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Jen,
great smokey and peaty flavor
The Balvenie 14 Year Old Caribbean Cask
Tumelo,
Sterling Scotch. Highly recommend. Glorious flavours. Beautiful colour. Great whisky.
Wolfburn Northland
Joey,
Very light a great starter scotch
Port Askaig 110° Proof
Aaron,
Potentially overpriced compared to similar whiskies, but damn did it hit the spot sitting by the fire !
Tullibardine 225 Sauternes Finish Scotch
Aaron,
Somewhat boring; but what a speecyspicy kick to finish
