St. Magdalene Rare Malts 19 yo 127.6 proof. A closed Lowland distillery.
I picked up Wiser's 18 year old. Maybe all the gold medals put me in the mood for a good Canadian whisky. Here are some notes:
Sweet and full. Toffee, table syrup. Dried leaves. Hint of mineral (wet rocks).
Crisp with oak and rye, followed by a surge of sweet corn. Evolves with hard caramel candy and that mineral note again.
Full and thick, almost syrupy.
Rather long. Dries on crisp leafy flavours, but a touch of sweetness persists.
A big, bittersweet Canadian whisky, less subtle than others in its class. Follows the established Wiserís profile of a more full-flavoured Canadian whisky. Comes across as a bit too sweet at times, perhaps, but satisfying nonetheless.
A bottle of Jameson's Gold Reserve over the weekend. St. Paddy's Day is coming and I've got to be ready!
Picked up another Laphroaig QC for the bunker and a Lagavulin 16.
Four Roses Small Batch
Four Roses Single Barrel
This thread is for foreign whiskey so Four Roses really doesn't qualify.
A bottle of Inchgower 14 (Flora & Fauna) to add to the collection.
Don't know if it is "water of life" but I picked a bottle of Johnny Walker Green. I have wanted to try this for a while - blended Scotch is pure malt and in my opinion "vodka scotch", so a pure malt blend is more what I think a blend should be. $59.99 less 25% at a liquor store going out of business that Bob and Randy told me about.
