Valley Of The Moon

Talisker

Talisker Storm Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Enjoyed this, though it does comes off a little harsh, which can perhaps be attributed to its youth. A NAS, but as I understand, the blend is at least as old as the standard 10 year old. It definitely has a pretty similar profile - pepper, brine, peat smoke, and citrus. Would be good to taste them side-by-side given the general consensus that the Storm's essentially the 10 taken up a notch. There's a really "sweet" inner core that pushes through to peaty, somewhat-medicinal finish. Medium length. Really liking this profile (particularly the saline character) so I'm definitely going to be checking out the rest of the range. — 4 months ago

@Severn Goodwin Haha. I can see that. The older bottlings not worth the premium?

@Aaron Tan They certainly are, but this particular bottle (Storm) does showcase their style with much greater affordability.

@Severn Goodwin Great to know. Very keen to try more bottlings and when possible, aged examples... Particular the precursor to the 10.

Rediviva of the Stones Syrah Blend 2015

I’ll have to look at my prior notes of this wine, but this strikes me as far more acid-driven than the last bottle I had. Nose show red fruits, crushed rock, and smellable acidity. Lean, crisp, but intense. Like a real hybrid of Walla Walla and a Northern Rhone from an older days cooler vintage. It’s got good length and mouthwatering acids. A Syrah- based wine to have with some meat dish in a sauce, as opposed to a simple grilled or roasted meat. — 6 days ago

Big sip of iced peach greens tea with aromas of an oxidized copper green penny. Tastes like apricots and Fuji apples. Very much as expected and very much appreciated. — 9 hours ago

Murder Of Crows Shiraz 2020

Went to a wine tasting last night and this was my favorite ! It is so full of fruit that the high alcohol content didn’t even matter. Paired great with an excellent steak. — 16 days ago
