JP Wiser’s 18 Year Old

  • Category: Blended Grain
  • Origin: Canada
  • Author: @dhere123
  • Rating: 75/100
  • Review: “A soft, light whiskey.  The age really delivers some soft oakiness.  Very smooth, light vanilla tones.  I don’t taste to many additional flavors.”

M&H Elements Sherry

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Israel
  • Author: @gullydwarf
  • Rating: 84/100
  • Review: “Lovely, somehow picked up mint amongst the typical bourbon/sherry notes.”

Nelson Bros. Reserve Bourbon

  • Category: Bourbon
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @Rhines81
  • Rating: 81/100
  • Review: “When you first take a sip, it hits the pallet with a slight bit of heat and finishes with a little bit of peppery notes that is nice.  It doesn’t linger for too long and I found myself wanting another sip.  Tested this neat, would probably be very good mixed or with rocks.”

Oak & Eden Bourbon Toasted Oak

  • Category: Bourbon
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @Creed785
  • Rating: 80/100
  • Review: “High acid burn at first but smooth and spicy taste that rests easy on the tongue. An easy recommend when trying something new or wanting a toasted oak. “

Talisker Parley – Wilder Seas

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @frank
  • Rating: 75/100
  • Review: “Too expensive for what it is.  Buy the 10yo instead.”

The Legendary Dark Silkie

  • Category: Blend
  • Origin: Ireland
  • Author: @William_Schep
  • Rating: 80/100
  • Review: “Sweet on the nose with some peat. Slight peat on the palate and honey. The aftertaste is a bit bitter, but that fades away after a few sips. It’s a young whisky so it’s lacks some finesse. Overall nice whisky “

Van Winkle 12 Year Old Lot B

  • Category: Bourbon
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @Meepcorp
  • Rating: 85/100
  • Review: “Potentially the best bourbon I’ve had. Totally worth the msrp but those secondary market prices are crazy. “
