Balvenie 15 Single Barrel

How do you like your apples?

Well, on the nose, this one’s got apple crisp.  The flavour is a lot like apple and cinnamon oatmeal, accompanied by a glass of Magner’s cider.  The beauty of these Single Barrel bottlings is that every one has its own unique character… can’t wait to try more of them!

Beautifully sweet and peaty, with a distinct note of Ivory soap on the nose.

Nose: briny, seaweed, with nuts and leather.  Kind of like a gay bar for fishermen.

Palate has some spice, with a lovely note of cocoa powder.  Clean, dry finish.

Creamy, buttery nose. Woody, with a bit of apple-y fruitiness. Thin, very fast and clean finish.

HOLY SEAWEED, BATMAN!
Christmas Eve 2013 Rod and Matt re-try some superstition,
And there was little seaweed to be found although there is a kind of briny-ness. Instead what was most apparent was Big Red Gum and cinnamon.

Talisker Distiller’s Edition

Lots of peat.  Not as much band-aid/iodine as the usual Talisker fare.  Palate had lots of clove and orange, and hints of Coca Cola or possibly even Brio.  Paired with some nice dark chocolate.

Lots of oak on the nose, obviously.  This scotch is ridiculously sweet, almost like cotton candy, with a hint of cherry. Some nice peat to balance it out, though.

Nose was like apricots, sprinkled with pencil shavings and drizzled with honey.  Palate was beautifully smooth and sweet, with a touch of salty black licorice.  We love this one.

Oban 1995 Distiller’s Edition

Darkly sweet and caramelly nose.  Quite spicy and peppery with a long, hot finish.  Matt said green peppercorns, but we think he was just showing off.  Overall darker and more complex than the regular Oban 14.

Nose: Demerera Sugar, candied fruit
Palate: Molasses, rich pastry and custard. A shade darker than the 15.
Finish: Is still going on. Awesome stuff.
