Little Bay of Caves 14 Years West Highland Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

Tonight’s nightcap 🥃

During our stay at the hospital for the birth of our son some dear friends of ours brought my wife & I a care package. In it were all manner of goodies and treats, as well as a bottle of champagne and this scotch. They know us all too well 🤫🤷🏻‍♂️
.
Caramel, creme brûlée, charred orange peels, and Christmas spice cake on the nose. Mild notes of moss on the palate with a pronounced but welcome warmth on the way down. Smooth and perfectly suitable for ending the day with.

Old Forester

Kentucky Straight Rye Whisky

Grainy, cereal nose with dried trail mix notes. Granola. Palate is bold, in classic fashion Old Forester fashion. Spicy notes lead to a long, warm finish. Good effort. For those who like a bold,, spicy rye, this one hits the right note. — 5 months ago

@Eric Bass if you can get hands on the 12 or 17 year old you’re in for even more of a treat

Fukano Distillery

Single Cask Whisky

Another modern Japanese whiskey. I’m starting to see how one gets seduced & to never turn back. If whiskey has a mid palate, this has it in spades. I don’t know how to write about whiskey but, hotdamn, I’m in love.... — 4 months ago

The Glenrothes

18 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glenrothes used to have a relatively unique labeling convention. They would mark the distillation date (vintage date). They did away with all that and adopted a more traditional age statement for their bottles. This was a crazy dark color after seeing 18 years in ex-sherry casks. Delicious honey, nuts, and dried fruits. Smooth. A pleasant “oiliness” though not to the extreme that the Craigellachie has. Long finish. Rich and delicious. Definitely worth seeking out. — 4 months ago

Sounds amazing. Have a bottle of 21 Macallan waiting to open later this year. Hopefully it lived up to the expectation.

This was an amazing treat! The finish lingers and lingers, and there is no way to describe how mellow and delicate this scotch is. It’s Mcallan 30, what more needs to be said?

Midleton

Redbreast Cask Strength Edition Aged 12 Years Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey

Perhaps one of the best Single Pot Still out there. Bottled at over 58%, it is surprisingly smooth on the nose and on the palate. Unripe banana, vanilla (probably from the cask), and American oak. More fruits come up after few drops of water. — 4 months ago

Suntory

17 Years Old Hibiki Blended Whisky

Very smooth, light orchard fruit on the nose like a yellow pear or yellow apple — 5 months ago
