Santa Fe Spirits Colkegan Single Malt

A Different Young Lady Santa Fe Spirits Colkegan Single Malt

Distilled and bottled in Santa FE, NM, this whiskey bears a felicitous contraction of the British owner's name, Colin Keegan. I had no idea what to expect out of this fledgling exile's distillery out…

Dalmore 12 Year Old

Hunting Lodge Dram Dalmore 12 Year Old

The color is a deep reddish-gold, as dark as the darkest Bourbon I’ve poured into a glass. It has slow, syrupy, promising legs. The nose is unmistakably Scottish: peat, grape, and cream dangling in a…

Highland Park 15 Year Old

Schooling Teachers Highland Park 15 Year Old

When nosing this whiskey, I can't help thinking that I'm smelling a really good blend. It reminds me of Teacher's, except it has an extra roundness, affability, and maltiness that sets it apart from the…

Suntory Yamazaki 12 Year Old

Japan Speaks Scotch Suntory Yamazaki 12 Year Old

The color is a dark, rich gold for such a light-tasting whiskey, suggesting artificial coloring, but I honestly have no clue. The nose is sharply fruity, with a zing of passion fruit and tart white fruit…

Glen Moray Carn Mor 17 Strictly Limited

Delicate Purebred Glen Moray Carn Mor 17 Strictly Limited

A good friend of mine got me this bottle for my birthday last year, and before I had tasted the contents, it already ticked a lot of boxes for me: bottled from a single cask, respectable ABV & age sta…

Balvenie 15 Year Old

Sherry Nuke Balvenie 15 Year Old

My bottle is aged in European sherry butts, and I can't say that I've tasted a better sherried whisky in my wannabe whisky-connoisseur career.The nose is full of spice, butter, and dates. There is also…

Scapa 16 Year Old

Serious and sweet. Scapa 16 Year Old

I can't get over the impression of artificial grape when I nose this one, not bad artificial grape necessarily. It's like a grape lollipop, the kind with a loop stick, really sticky and tempting. There's…

Talisker 10 Year Old

Scottish Sweetheart Talisker 10 Year Old

It smells of smoke, peat, brine, and the same velvety quality of Black Label. For taste, there is an explosion of sweetness and flavor in the mouth, with no bitterness, and a lingering finish. On further…
