Nicely rounded with smaller cask. Maybe sherry or orloroso. Big peat per usual. — a month ago

Way too much peat for my taste but if you are into that you’ll love this one. — a month ago

Yes I guess you can call peat an acquired taste. But in this spectrum lagavulin is on the low scale.

Glenrothes Distillery

Robur Reserve Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

I don't think this is as bad as some people paint it to be. It's a perfectly fine entry-level NAS scotch, though a bit too rich for me. Round, sweet, and malty. — 2 months ago

The Duthac Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

I bought a 1 litre bottle at the distillery in Tain, Ross-Shire last August 2019. Smokey aromas also cloves, dried fruit and vanilla. Matured in Pedro Ximenez and Virgin oak casks bringing sweet caramel and vanilla notes to the palate. Overall smooth and a crowd pleasing Single Malt where the Oak casks influence the flavour profile noticeably. Perfect for a very cold day in Toowoomba - currently 7 degrees Celsius - probably like a heat wave to many Delectable posters in North America and Europe. — a month ago

You’ll probably have to make that last as it will be a while before the current world lets you make that trip again. 😔

@Clive McNish Very true Clive. Sadly just polished off the last dram but would buy again.

Nice bottle.
7°C is a beautiful Fall day for me, perfect temp to sit by the outside fire and drink Champagne.

Clynelish Distillery

Aged 14 Years Coastal Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Mild and delicate. Lemon and white chocolate on the nose as well as on the palette. Also on the palette, flavors of praline appear with mild peat and saline. The finish is Christmas spices with a hint of cigar box. — 7 days ago

This one really grew on me after a few sips. Nice smokiness to it. Lingered on the palate. Nicely done. — 2 months ago
