Bearface Triple Oak

  • Origin: Canada
  • Author: @Leviatan11
  • Rating: 73/100
  • Review: “I had a chance to taste the element whiskies at Festival Of Whisky at Jastrzębia Góra in Poland, which are used to produce this one and talk to the Master Blender. This is very experimental product, but already good. And that’s cool someone is experimenting in the world of whisky so bravely! “

  • Origin: United States
  • Author: @AsleepInTheBack

Johnnie Walker Red Label

  • Category: Blend
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @DutchDanny
  • Rating: 68/100

  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @user42228314

Octomore Edition 11.1

  • Category: Single Malt
  • Origin: Scotland
  • Author: @Kermel
  • Rating: 95/100
  • Review: “I was looking forward to yet another tasting if my favourite brand and I was not disappointed. Very nice and soft vanilla, sweeting, cinnamon nose. Despite being the most ppmed whisky it is not very smoky/iodine/peaty-whatever. Just nice harmony of taste and soft smoky/salty hints. Simply beautiful.”

  • Author: @VWTDI02
  • Rating: 75/100
  • Review: “Nose: Almonds, pear, slight creaminess, and lemon Palate: Ginger, black pepper and malt. Finish: Black pepper and candied ginger. Overall: Definitely different from their regular single malt but lacks the vanilla/caramel you expect from bourbon. Not bad but just meh”
