BenRiach 12 Year Old The Twelve

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @Kvlaanen
  • Rating: 75/100
  • Review: “This BenRiach The Twelve has a rich and soft scent: honey, cocoa, berries and blackberries. Maraschino cherries, baked orange and hazelnut richly fill the mouth, which leads to an aftertaste of raisins, spices and mocha. “

Crown Royal Canadian Whisky

  • Category: Canadian Whisky
  • Origin: Canada
  • Author: @RynoMac
  • Rating: 67/100
  • Review: “My dad had it in his cabinet. Why not.”

Glen Scotia 2022 Campbeltown Malts Festival

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @ChrisCharman
  • Rating: 75/100
  • Review: “I love a Glen Scotia but this has missed the mark a little for me. I was intruiged to try something so peated for GC but I find this a little too young, the smoke is a bit flat and its very dry. I think I prefer a bourbon cask in general but I love other GC’s that have had some PX influence so only can imagine that the peat levels and young age just haven’t worked that well. Still worth a try but much preferred some of their previous festival releases.”

Jack Daniel’s Bonded

  • Category: Tennessee Whiskey
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @VWTDI02
  • Rating: 77/100
  • Review: “Nose: Caramel, vanilla, and banana. Very rich nose. Palate: Sweet, caramel, vanilla, and banana. Finish: Graham cracker, subtle heat, banana, and medium length. Overall: Tasty and rich but one dimensional. Nose and Palate match with not a ton going on otherwise.”

M&H Elements Sherry

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Israel
  • Author: @WhiskyJohnny
  • Rating: 72/100
  • Review: “Forrest, ressin and pines. Fresh flavours.”

Masthouse Single Estate Whisky

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: England
  • Author: @Jhender4
  • Rating: 67/100
  • Review: “Nose is orchard fruits – nectarine, peach, green apple, also shortbread, something like a rubber cement is there too, but it’s not a bad thing. Palate is really light and pleasant, all biscuits and soft honey and graham crackers. Gets a little bit of spice into the finish, which is similar to the nose (apples, rubber cement) along with some almonds.”

Redbreast 21 Year Old

  • Category: Single Pot Still
  • Origin: Ireland
  • Author: @Isenriel
  • Rating: 87/100
  • Review: “Tasty, elegant, quite complex, very well matured and balanced. It’s however too polite and lacks a kick, which is offered by 12CS.”

  • Origin: Ireland
  • Author: @FreezyT

  • “One of the “”strangest”” tasting experiences i had. Would guess, you love it or hate it. I love it…try yourself, very difficult to explain.”
