Glenrothes

First Editions Glen Grant 23 Year Old Single Malt Scotch

Caramel, darkest brown rye bread, baked golden apple, ripe green apple and poached Bosc, lemon and orange peel, glistening hemp oils. Lemongrass, spruce, sage and basil, peach blossom, clover and candied violet waft olfactorial. Ethereally nuanced. Snappy ginger and intense lemon oil, peppercorn, ginseng, candied grapefruit ride a fiery wave across the palate. Lanolin and beeswax entertain candied ginger and cinnamon oil. This one rips the thinning veil asunder, releasing the smoky spirits of ancestral resolve; the striving, meticulous, driven and unwavering craft. Impeccable and intense in depth, breadth and expanse.

Thanks! Really good whisky! Would buy again if I could find it, but have had this for almost 10 years, and with low production, guessing it is hard to find.

Glenrothes

First Editions Glen Grant 23 Year Old Single Malt Scotch

Orange peel infused caramel, cinnamon apple, crumbly cedar, and a russet earthiness aromatically. Warm flash on entry, exhibiting golden apple drizzled with caramel, strong tobacco, pepper, a briny pineapple touch and a spruce nettle finish. Instantly put peach skin into my mind, but perhaps texturally more than flavor-wise, ginger and cedar spine, tinted with gunpowder tea. #scotch #glengrant #speyside #scotland #firsteditions — 7 years ago

Macallan Distillery

Edition No 4 Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Aromas of gingerbread, apricot, cut red apples, lemon pith, tea biscuit and caramel. What a smooth and amazingly deft whiskey on entry; lifting off the palate like a smoldering Phoenix immolating in slow-mo as it becomes engulfed in various smokes layering endlessly outward in its bourgeoning expansion. It evokes congnac’s finest offerings, showing mixed apple and baked orchard fruits and complex spice and pastries, but cask choices leave no doubt to its whiskey-ness. All the nobility, but with the sinewy strength of a seasoned warrior. #scotch #whiskey #whisky #macallan #No4 #HighlandWhiskey — 5 years ago

Yes, it is dark, and it really benefits from a healthy dollop of water. #darkorigins #highlandpark #scotch #delectableapp #oldlinefinewine — 8 years ago

Compass Box

Great King Street Blended Scotch Artists Blend

Light golden color reminiscent of apple juice. Warm apples, baked pineapple, grilled lemon, walnut brioche, pine nut, hazelnut, and Bosc pear and vanilla cooking aromas. There is light Spanish cedar trailing. NorCal wildflower honey meets pine nettle and orange peel on the palate. Cedar plank, green peppercorn, currant leaf, lemon zest, grapefruit oils, and flash of cinnamon oil paints a pleasantly complex narrative of autumn comforts and campfire smokes with brittle caramel bits and bee pollen place it squarely in the meadow. Packs a surprise for those who underestimate it based on pale color. No caramel color here, and no dark shadows. Bright, lively, alive. #compassboxgreatkingstreet #compassbox #compassboxwhisky #scotch #blendedscotch #edinburgh #scotchwhisky #whisky #whiskey #artistsblend #johnglaser #nonchillfiltered — 3 years ago

Talisker

25 Years Cask Strength 57.2% Bottled 2004 Single Malt Scotch Whisky Skye

What a powerhouse whiskey! Smoke and citrus hit you like a core sample that somehow burgeons into thick smoke with a saline and jalapeño essence unraveling it’s lemon, tangerine and orchard fruits wrapped in sweet tobaccos. There is a mild sweetness that tames the heat with vanilla, chili pepper, almond biscuit and brown sugar, but the core never wavers, and the smoke never clears. A true bonfire on the beach! #talisker #scotch #IsleofSkye — 5 years ago
