Glenmorangie Lasanta, 46% abv

Light, oranges and citrus notes on nose; fresh and floral with some banana notes on palate; delightful finish with a hint of ginger. A wonderful dram.

Disappointing. Great nose, rich, sherry, organic and spices; some smoke and honey; woody oak and flat on palate; medium short finish with hint of anise.

Highland Park 18 years old

Highland Park 18 years old, 43% abv

This was a full flavored whisky for me, I quite enjoyed it. The nose was flowery, strong, but not over powering. A dry oak finish.

Old Pulteney 17 years old

Old Pulteney 17 years old, 46% abv

I was not a fan of this one. The nose was rough, too spicy. The palatte was very dry, with a pine needle finish.

Scapa 16 years old

Quite smooth on the palatte, very enjoyable. Rich long aftertaste.

Glengoyne 10 years old

Glengoyne 10 years old, 43% abv

Light nose prickle; warm dry hay; pepper tends to dominate the palate.

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Batch 65

Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey Batch 65, 47% abv

Heavy on the nose it almost forces candy apples up each nostril (but not an unpleasant experience!). Sweet and caramel tastes with a bit of licorice even. Through the soft sweet flavours it brightens teh edge of my tongue with a crisp almost medecinal tang.

Johnnie Walker Double Black

Johnnie Walker Double Black, 40% abv

I've always loved peaty scotch, but now I'm starting to prefer the gentleness and subtle complexities of many Hihgland and Speyside malts. So this Double Black is bridging that gap. The peat on the nose softens to a smoother vanilla on teh palate andfinishes with a lingering warmth. Not an exceptional whisky, but very enjoyable.
