Aberfeldy 12 Year Old
Michael,
How did I like it? It gone. It went fast too.
Auchentoshan Three Wood
Matthew,
Tasty little number
Laphroaig 25 Year Old
Matthew,
It’s a bit special
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Matthew,
Getting a little tired of the peat
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
James,
I love Laphroaig in general, and I can imagine that this is delightful to a certain palate, but to me, this one just too "meaty", almost "sweaty". I loved the Lagavulin, though.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Chris,
Loved it. A great expression by Caol Ila; however, the lagavullin 16 is like for like price and my preferred.
Bowmore 12 Year Old
Mark,
Love this one, very smooth, but a great taste!
Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve
Michael,
Sweet honey 🍯
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old

Go to drink
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
guest,
Wet
Talisker 10 Year Old
Michael,
As far scotch goes, its solid but i think my personal preferences are straying from the peatiness in favor of smoother drinking whiskey. Aroma is heavy with smoke and is fairly overpowering. There is a slight burn in the nostrils. Initial taste is smoke...followed by a hint of caramel, and finishes with more smoke, but surprisingly mellow burn. I would not purchase a bottle for myself, but think it would be a good gift for a regular scotch drinker. A bottle in my own collection would last a long time, as it would be a special occasion with a friend or two who would appreciate above average scotch for me to break it out.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Mike,
My most favorite single malt from Islay
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Roy,
Makes an evening very enjoyable!
Aberfeldy 12 Year Old
Alan,
Because I first had a dram in Inverness and carried a bottle home to the US, I'm emotionally invested.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Tyler,
Want to shake things up? Spice up your old fashioned with this gem!
Old Pulteney 12 Year Old
Avinash,
seasealt, caramel,vanila.. probably my favorite for the price!
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
James,
This bottle is the pinnacle of smoke and peat but it is extremely smooth. If you're not a fan of that characteristic I would not purchase a full bottle but try first. It hits the palate hard with smoke and peat at first and then takes you on a ride to some citrus and vanilla followed by some sweetness that offsets the initial smoke but doesn't remove it. This reminds me of ARDBEG Uigeadail minus the leather and a little bit of sweetness. I am not a fan of Uigeadail but I can get down on Lagavulin 16.
Aberlour 12 Year Old
Aaron,
Easily, my fav scotch. Was the best distillery tour as well! So drinkable.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Katherine,
Looooovved it. But I knew I would. Now that was a whole bottle. How can I try some of those small vials (dram size)? Thanks, Kathy (cortenka@gmail.com)
Tobermory 15 Year Old
Matthew,
Notes of Caramel and so so smooth. Was expecting to be far harsher.
The Dalmore Cigar Malt Reserve
Alan,
Good God. If Kipling had opined on scotch the way he did on cigars, this dram would have cost him his last girlfriend. I loved the depth of flavors and the outstanding finish. It was really the finish that won me over on this one. A whole lotta wow.
The Glenlivet 12 Year Old
Jason,
A perfectly satisfactory drink. Nothing more to be said, really.
Ledaig 10 Year Old
Adam,
Particularly peaty (and pepperly), but it's got a smooth finish. Nice addition to the collection from Isle of Mull
The GlenDronach 18 Year Old Allardice
Chris,
Very smooth, favorite scotch
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
ERIC,
Easy drinking, fine for cocktails, price point is about right.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Ray,
This is the quintessential islay, smoke and peat for days
Compass Box Flaming Heart 10th Anniversary
Brad,
This is possibly the most complex thing over ever drank. I lack the ability to properly put into words the spicy sweet blend this bottle contains.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Robert,
Very peaty. Very good.
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old
Nicholas,
A very good scotch for the money, complex and balanced with excellent sweet and nutty flavor, interesting smoke/coastal lingering flavor
The GlenDronach 18 Year Old Allardice
guest,
This is just an amazing dram. The cherries and orange/chocolate smack you in the face, then comes the nuttiness, followed by the delightful Christmas cake on the long finish. You get what you pay for!
Dewar's White Label
Dylan,
The bottle we have is about 60 years old
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Stjepan,
I like the smoothness and the peaty aftertaste.
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
guest,
Before I had tried Johnny Walker Black, I assumed it would be a mundane whiskey because it is readily available and inexpensive. Boy, was I wrong. It has some nice vanilla, smoke and oak notes on the nose. On the palate, it has some nice spice and peaty flavors, which are some of my favorites with scotch. The more I drink JW Black, the more I like it!
Oban 14 Year Old
Connor,
A little peat but a lot of flavor. 🔥
The Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival
David,
Round, warm and wonderful. Full, mouth-filling flavor with plenty of sherry, vanilla, and cherry. Notes of baking spice and a touch of smoke show in a long finish.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Josh,
I prefer sherry cask Scotch but I must say this is absolutely wonderful. Nice smooth smoke with a mildly sweet, earthy finish. Excellent, almost a 10!
Glenrothes Sherry Cask Reserve
Josh,
Damn, I didn’t want to like this one because it is difficult to find where I live. Thank God for Flaviar! This is really good!
Arran 10 Year Old Whisky
Josh,
It has a bite to it, much closer to what a novice Scotch drinker to think Scotch is supposed to be. Very good overall.
Talisker 10 Year Old
Josh,
Apples up front, smoke comes second and a spicy finish on the tongue, very good but with so many varieties, it’s not my “GO TO SCOTCH.”
Old Pulteney 12 Year Old
Josh,
Rich tasting whisky, definitely not a starter Scotch. Has a distinct smoky finish. Very, very good.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Tom,
Like it. Its not a starter whiskey for me. I have to go to this after something a little less peaty as a primer. But when I get there, its really good.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Tom,
Like it. Its easy drinking and something I give people who are not really whiskey fans. Not bad, but not a lot going on for me.
Arran 10 Year Old Whisky
Roy,
Quite good but not for me. I’m sure the issue is with my taste buds but struggled to find the depth that other’s have.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
guest,
Saftig süße, aber trotzdem stechende Nase, volles angenehmes Mundgefühl mit langem Nachbrand. Gut, kann man wieder trinken 06/20 Pierer Teichalm
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Jason,
I tried this for the first time after the Port Charlotte, thinking I’d like the profile more. Quite the opposite, I found the profile much more one dimensional and rough in comparison. Not a huge fan, and I love smoke
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
Michael,
Great for everyday sipping
Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve
Michael,
Excellent..smooth
Port Askaig 100° Proof
Cody,
If I could go negative I would, smells like chemical and leaves the worst taste I've ever experienced from any type of alcohol.
Compass Box Great King Street Artist's Blend
Mark,
A nice tasting scotch. I definitely get some butter from the nose along with fruit and coconut. The finish is pleasant and wholesome.
Glenmorangie Signet
John,
Sweet Scotch. Chocolate, caramel. Unusual for a Scotch, but very delicious.
