BenRiach Heart of Speyside

Blend-like BenRiach Heart of Speyside

There is not much to say about this whisky really. It's very young and not complex. It reminds me of a medium-class blend. I event didn't care to write some TN. It's 12yo brother is so much better.

Jura 16 Year Old

Quality whisky, just that Jura 16 Year Old

This whisky is a nice one. It's quite smooth, gentle and tasty. But It's pretty uneventful. I guess it is for those moments when you don't feel like examining a dram for hours. If you just want to sit…
