Aberfeldy 16 Year Old

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @user43720050
  • Rating: 70/100
  • Review: “Smooth, balanced but not as rich or  complex as I anticipated for darker colored sherry aged scotch. Good but not great.”

Amrut Fusion

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: India
  • Author: @MarcHD
  • Rating: 88/100
  • Review: “Reminded me a lot of Bruichladdich Classic Laddie with it’s fresh barely sugar and bright vibrant notes. One especially good for spring or even summer and glad I finally got round to trying Amrut. Been curious for years”

Ardbeg BizarreBQ

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @Rassi
  • Rating: 84/100
  • Review: “Tasted this release alongside Ardbeg Heavy Vapours and for my taste this is more complete product. It has nice color of copper and the nose is gentle without much ethanol. Nose has meat or bacon treated with honey or other sweet sauce. The taste is smoky with touch of spices.”

Barrell Dovetail

  • Category: Blend
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @Durge
  • Rating: 85/100
  • Review: “Aroma: great maple pine malt aroma, graham cracker. Fruit nougat, white pepper pear. – Palate: sweet honey wheat, herbal, vanilla. – A pretty hefty pour that does well with some added water or even ice to mellow. Sweet taste treat, well blended.”

Buffalo Trace White Dog, Rye Mash

  • Category: New Make
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @VWTDI02
  • Rating: 20/100
  • Review: “Nose: Sour nose with some funk going on – Palate: Sweet at first but quickly turns nauseating – Finish: peppery with lots of rye and leaves a taste of raw bread dough. Overall: Just bad. Not sure what I’ll do with it. Maybe save it to prank someone. Didn’t even finish a glass.”

Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old Cask Strength

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @siara00
  • Rating: 88/100
  • Review: “Nose: dominated by fruits – dates, dried cherry, in addition to the classic fruits associated with sherry, I also sense yellow fruits – peach? A bit of citrus, bourbon also comes to the fore here – clear vanilla, chocolate toffee. – Taste: initially sherry hits, a lot of raisins, sometimes citrus notes appear, milk chocolate, toffee, spices – nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, quite clear but short spiciness. – Finish: moderate to long, warming, fruity, built mainly by sherry, a bit of citrus, vanilla.”

Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye, Port Finish

  • Category: Rye
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @Grumpyscotch
  • Rating: 79/100
  • Review: “As always this rye hits right up front and follows straight through the mid palate. Somewhere before swallowing this fruity jam notes tries to sneak in and cozy up to all those spices. Very nice.”

Hakushu 12 Year Old

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Japan
  • Author: @jdriip
  • Rating: 92/100
  • Review: “This bottle has been open less than two weeks. Initially unimpressive, it is now amazing! I’ll have to add real notes later. For now its restrained earthy peat, honey, orange peel, baking spices, dried fruit, delicious and fantastic!”

Maker’s Mark Cask Strength

  • Category: Bourbon
  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @jackfar177
  • Rating: 88/100
