Ardbeg

Uigeadail The Ultimate Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

In a case of truth in labeling, this is the ultimate in peat and salinity, the latter so off the scale as to evoke a sense of pure iodine. A few splashes of water sorted this out, superb. — 11 days ago

Craigellachie

Berry Bros. & Rudd Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2001

Some of our dear friends muled this bottle from their recent trip to Scotland. Craigellachie is not very well known outside of Scotland as little of it gets bottled under its own label. Instead, the majority goes into blends for Dewars. Bottled at cask-strength, my notes are after four drops of water. This is an explosion of honey, lanolin, Frosted Flakes, pine forest, and bandaid. This is an oily whisky with substantial body. The finish is looooooong...lasting for minutes. Super delicious! — 10 days ago

Loch Lomond Distillery

Aged 12 Years Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

Mild peat. Not complex, but no bad at all. Moderate spice on the finish. This distillery seems to deliver a decent product on the lower end of the single malt scotch price spectrum. — 8 days ago

Caol Ila

Aged 12 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Nose is camp fire, pepper, sea breeze, and some faint lemon peel.

Pretty dry up front with big spice/pepper notes. Smoke builds on palate and crescendos in a salty smoked bacon note with some lemon pith. Long, savory finish.

An Islay beauty. Not as much malt or wood sweetness as others, but really nice brine notes and plastic phenolic notes are subdued. Yum.

Agreed. I used to think their 30 had the best QPR, but the price on that really shot up recently. And I’m with you: the 40 is the best scotch I’ve ever had. Period.
