10 YEAR OLD SHERRY OAK FINISH

What is the only thing better than Laphroaig 10 year scotch? The same scotch that hangs out in sherry casks before its bottled.
A very reasonable $43 from Total W.

Black Art Aged 26 Years Unpeated Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 1994

Perhaps slightly less “interesting” than some peated scotches, but if you don’t like this, you just don’t like amazing whiskey. — 5 months ago

La Bota de Fino No. 35 Sherry

The UNDEAD

Bought from “closeout bin” due to long time since release. Then fogot it👎. Any life left?
Served with Vinloq System

DAY1
👀Turbid golden brown
👃Nutty + dried fruits. Fresh
👅Smoky. Salty. Toffee. Nuts. Bandaids. Tea. Varnish..
Totally savory. So complex. So delicious. Powerful. Channels scotch whisky with some flavors. Wow! Not dead yet

Vinloq preserved bottle refrigerated until..

DAY12
Same as DAY1. Panoramic flavor profile. Islay scotch notes. Full bodied
Begs for charcuterie 🙂

DAY20
Savory, salty, smoky. Rich, bold, amazing

This was so affecting that I was having taste auras the following day each time.
I was pouring this at night as a sipper like I would a scotch

Proved to have plenty of life left. Invincible?

Uigeadail The Ultimate Islay Single Malt Scotch Whiskey

We love Islay malts in winter— Seattle reached 17° F today, so we reached for the Oog. Gorgeous bottling if a touch sweet for my palate. Threads the needle of smoky peat/malt styles very well. Best with a few drops of water to open up. — 5 months ago

10 Years Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Color of tea. Nose of smoke, peat, sweet dates, spicy and strong alcohol, and more coal like peat. The nose is powerful. Taste is another hit of smoky peat. First sip is dry, however the sweetness surfaces later. Hidden note of marginal sweet apple. Aftertaste shows some baked apple and more smoky peat note. Clean, powerful, straightforward, and tasty. — 2 months ago

Octomore Edition 07.2 Aged 5 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Peat and salinity are definitely at the forefront. But I love both and there is enough malt to provide some balance to my taste. — 4 months ago
