Bowmore Legend

For $30? Bowmore Legend

Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak

A bit overrated? Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry Oak

...in my opinion. Or it may just be that I'm not as fond of sherry monsters as I thought. Because it's all sherry, here -- with toffee and cranberries in the nose, along with earthy wet blossoms. There's…

Caol Ila 12 Year Old

A new favorite! Caol Ila 12 Year Old

Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

The best way to drink port Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban

The nose is dominated by the dark fruitiness of port with a foundation of syrupy French toast. Take a sip and you get lots of brown sugar & cinnamon, with warm citrus notes of blood orange. A thick &…
