Glenlivet Code

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @MoneyMatters1994
  • Rating: 95/100
  • Review: “The novelty of the whisky adds to the desire to taste it and create your tasting notes as Alan Winchester never released the tasting notes at the time of release. Awesome bottle that engages the avid whisky connoisseur.”

James E. Pepper Old Pepper Rye

  • Category: Rye
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @TIMAAAAAAAY
  • Rating: 86/100
  • Review: “Can be a bit harsh so a sacrificial sip is a must, but afterwards if gives off a deep and long finish. If you like a strong rye forward flavor with the more subtle after tones than this is a great choice. I personally prefer it neat, but it also makes a spectacular whiskey sour.”

  • Review: “You can definitely taste a hint of stout.”

  • Category: Blend
  • Origin: Namibia
  • Author: @cosmo
  • Rating: 80/100
  • Review: “What a great surprise: a great whisky from Namibia with barley malted over elephant dung fire, nice and full and sweet with a load of sweet wine and gentle peat”

Royal Brewhouse Gold Royale

  • Category: Blend
  • Origin: Indonesia
  • Author: @Jhender4
  • Rating: 72/100
  • Review: “On the nose I first get oranges, then a strong banana taffy smell develops. Staying with it a bit reveals some rye bread spice and also marshmallow. On the tongue it’s creamy, slightly juicy, and a little indistinct. Mostly malt notes, some citrus, but there’s also a tangy pineapple and a little bit of oak spices. Finish brings in that tang and the slight spiciness along with sweetness and some more banana taffy. Interesting stuff.”
