Johnnie Walker Blue Label

Smooth Johnnie Walker Blue Label

This ultra premium pours a nice deep gold and leaves a thin oily ring on the glass. The nose is light, offering hints of malt and honeyed sweetness. The palate is just smooth, with almost no smoke. I got…

Rebel Yell

Uncomplicated Sipping Rebel Yell

This was my first experience with Rebel Yell, and I bought a bottle upon recommendation of a friend. First, it pours a surprisingly light color for a bourbon. More golden than the usual amber. On the…

Caol Ila 12 Year Old

Laphroaig Wannabe Caol Ila 12 Year Old

I’ve had this bottle for a couple years, and had not had any for quite some time, so I decided to go back and give it another try. I had it neat, and it pours a light golden straw color. The pour is thin…

Chivas Regal 12 Year Old

A nice introduction to whisky Chivas Regal 12 Year Old

This Chivas expression would be a good one for someone just beginning their whisky journey. I was served this with a couple small cubes of ice, in a heavy cocktail glass. The pour was a nice golden amber…

Ardbeg Alligator

Incredible Islay Ardbeg Alligator

My taste in Scotch tends to run to the Islays. But I generally shy away feom these “big” whiskies in the summer. I find the scent and taste of them lend them to winter drinking. The initial nose is one…
