The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak
David,
Easy to drink, but I expected a bit more for the price point. Subtle, smooth, but somewhat lacking in terms of a flavor profile.
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
Stefan,
High value for money, this smoky whisky from the Walker-family is very nice and comes at a very reasonable price.
Ardbeg Uigeadail
Stefan,
Too smokey even for my liking, I would not buy this one again.
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Stefan,
Perfect smokey whisky from Ardbeg, the nicest one I've had so far.
Caol Ila 12 Year Old
Karri,
New year present from a good friend. Very smooth experience, with happy surprise with the flavors. This one was much welcome addition to my collection.
Laphroaig 10 Year Old
Karri,
First real whisky that I ever bought myself. The taste changed my life view how I looked at spirits in general. The smokey flavor took me into a journey and I haven't looked back since.
Bowmore 12 Year Old
Joshua,
very nice, smoky, peaty sipper; just lovely straight, and fine with a little ice
Ardbeg Uigeadail
Joshua,
i've only had a small glass once, but it stuck with me as one of the best libations i've ever had
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Joshua,
lovely, smoky, peaty - a *real* treat; a little water can open up more of the caramel notes and tone down the peat, if that's not your bag
Laphroaig 10 Year Old
Joshua,
a very good Islay; not too peaty, but sufficient; smooth and almost too easy to drink
Auchentoshan Three Wood
Jeremiah,
Not great. Least favorite of the three from the "In the Mood for Wood" taster.
Laphroaig 10 Year Old
Josef,
Prefer quarter cask
Oban 14 Year Old
Josef,
Good
Talisker 10 Year Old
Josef,
Salty
Singleton of Dufftown 15 Year Old
Lawrence,
Slight spice that quickly calms to sweat. Slight smoke
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Nicholas,
Love this Scotch after the first dram. It’s peaty and love the hint of salt.
Glenfarclas 21 Year Old
Kestrel,
A bit underwhelmed. First Glenfarclas that I have had in my cabinet, and maybe I over-expected. That said, I just finished the bottle, so by no means was it "bad". Felt a bit bland to me, with no real exciting notes.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Kestrel,
Great for the price point. Clean and simple, but satisfying.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Amber,
Sweet, tart with a gentle finish.
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old
Alexander,
Love this! So smooth and surprisingly not peaty; rather a woodiness. Bunnahabhain has a permanent spot in my home bar. I highly recommend!
Compass Box Great King Street Artist's Blend
Alexander,
This is a great blend at a bargain price! Enjoy in a penicillin or on its own.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Tina,
Nice go to
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old
Robert,
I like this one! Not as peaty as some Islay Scotches I have tried. A very pleasant flavor. My palate is not all that well-developed yet, but it tastes sweet to me. Will buy again.
GlenDronach 18 Year Old Allardice
guest,
Lots of sherry hint of peat. Dark rich color and long finish. My favorite so far.
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Jason,
Clean, some smoke, pleasant finish
Arran 10 Year Old Whisky
Cynthia,
Enjoyed this one - has a zesty, somewhat smoky, slightly sweet - just a tad more bite than super easy going. I can enjoy this one anytime.
Compass Box Asyla
Edward,
Nice light blend. Citrus, green apple, grass and not a hint of peat. This is what I'd offer someone who said they didn't like scotch because of how peaty they are.
BenRiach Curiositas 10 Year Old
Greg,
Quite enjoyable with well balanced peat and flavors of vanilla, honey, light fruit and barley finish. Esp. Impressive for a 10 year old. Price point seems ok. A fine dram for a winter evening by the fire
Ardbeg 10 Year Old
Michael,
One of the best whiskies I ever tasted! Just love it! 🥃
Johnnie Walker Blue Label
Megan,
Lol perfection
The Glenlivet 12 Year Old
Matt,
Not my favorite or least favorite from the Glenlivet. I strongly prefer the 15 year to this one. It tastes mostly the same, but it is much smoother with more pronounced and refined fruit and oak notes. The 12 year hints at that delicious Glenlivet flavor profile, but mostly misses the mark for me. Spend the extra and go 15 or even 18 year. The 12 is nice, but it tastes younger and less refined than a lot of other 12 year scotches.
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Mark,
Love it!!! Reminds me of being by a camp fire on the beach. Heavy peat with just the correct amount of sweetness. The finish is long and wonderful.
Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Solera Reserve
Scott,
smooth
Johnnie Walker Double Black
Carter,
Really Interesting flavors. Not a huge fan of the overbearing peat smoke flavor but I respect the change in whiskey flavor. A tasty blend but a blend that could use some more flavor profile.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Ian,
Probably ahead of my time on this one. Way better than I think I could probably appreciate. Smooth and warm
Glengoyne 21 Year Old
ronald,
Absolutely lovely drink, gentle but still firm in the mouth
Bowmore 12 Year Old
ronald,
Nice strong taste, if you like peaty, smoke drinks.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Uldis,
Very nice aroma but spicy, dry taste.
The Macallan Estate Reserve
David,
Great smooth easy to drink scotch yet complex enough to be interesting. If you like a slight sweetness and are ok with something that isn't as well aged as others at this price point its a fantastic scotch.
Arran 10 Year Old Whisky
Ryan,
This is a great bottle to try when you are first exploring Scotch. The light color is indicative of a younger Scotch that finishes smooth but still provides the full flavor.
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Nathan,
Sweet ciderish nose, slight acetone and malt on the palate. A bit of a wet concrete finish in a not unpleasant way. Very good for the price.
Laphroaig 10 Year Old
Robert,
I prefer the 10 year old better than the 15 or the 25 year old because the smokiness and peaty taste is much more intense. One of my favorites.
Singleton of Dufftown 15 Year Old
David,
Delicious as a sample, neat. Rare, low 80 proof for a 15 year which I like. Smooth, with a lot of depth of flavor.
Johnnie Walker Black Label 12 Year Old
Liam,
Mellow taste good flavor
The Macallan 15 Year Old Fine Oak
guest,
The honey vanilla fruit notes are front and center with just a touch of spice.
Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old
Matthew,
Beautiful and smooth
Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch Whisky
Mark,
Soepel, honing, zacht
Lagavulin 16 Year Old
Antti,
It is a good, intense, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & bold life leads to a long & spicy death with notes of Indian spices, figs & dates.
Auchentoshan Three Wood
Muriel,
Strong alcohol and tangy taste, smell upsets my stomach
Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old
Mark,
Smooth. Honey. Bit of walnut. Very good.
