Lagavulin 16 Year Old

The best of Islay Lagavulin 16 Year Old

As far as I'm concerned, this is the pinnacle of Islay scotch. What makes it great is that it's more than just smoke and peat. Of course, that's not to say that smoke and peat aren't present in abundance…

Macallan Cask Strength

Powerful and punchy Macallan Cask Strength

The best way to describe this is what comes on the label -- it's a cask-strength version of Macallan, with flavors very reminiscent of the Macallan 12.The higher proof, obviously, brings up the alcohol…

Cragganmore 12 Year Old

Balanced, smooth, and delightful Cragganmore 12 Year Old

I've tried many, many single malt scotches through the "standard scotch" price point (in my area, something like $30-50/bottle). This is the one I consistently come back to as my "everyday" scotch. The…

Ardbeg 10 Year Old

Pure unadulterated peat Ardbeg 10 Year Old

This is a very funny scotch. Incredibly powerful peat and smoke notes, and an oily mouth feel with a smoky finish. But what's interesting about it is that's all there is. As far as flavor profile is…

Glenrothes 1985

A spectacular bottle Glenrothes 1985

This is a great bottle -- arguably much better than, say, the Macallan 18, at a much more reasonable price.A very smooth and rich scotch, with a nice sweetness, coming I think, from sherry casking. No…

Balvenie 15 Year Old

A great scotch at a great price point Balvenie 15 Year Old

This is everything I like about Balvenie scotches at a really great value. It's got the usual Balvenie oak notes, though relatively less than the Double Wood 12yo (see my other review of that bottle)…

Glenlivet 12 Year Old

Consistently Underwhelming Glenlivet 12 Year Old

I'm not sure why I'm underwhelmed by this scotch. Perhaps it's that it does nothing exceptionally well, and many things half-decently. The nose is light - a bit of oak, a bit of sweetness, a bit of…

Balvenie 12 Year Old DoubleWood

A great oaky scotch Balvenie 12 Year Old DoubleWood

This isn't the best scotch I've ever tasted, by far, but it's a nice "everyday" scotch. Not nearly as sweet as many other scotches in its price-range (e.g., the Macallan 12), which I like quite a bit.The…
