Chivas 12 is on sale at the LCBO for $37... picked one up...a decent everyday blend.
Bowmore 10 Tempest. Notes in a moment.
I picked another bottle of Oban 14 to replace a recently demised bottle. :grin:
I dropped by my local store to get a bottle of Dickel 12 and I happened to see a bottle I haven't seen in quite a while... Carduh 12. Obviously, I had to buy it. :grin:
Laphroaig QC. The bar seemed so empty the last week or so without it.
Ok... Cardhu 12: It has a floral, honey, vanilla nose. The taste is sweet, as I remember it. Kind of a vanilla, caramel, butter sweet all rolled into one. There is also the slightest bit of smoke. The finish is medium to short, with a caramel cream candy kind of note.... maybe a little dry. The mouth is full and on the medium, thick side. The legs are wide and slow to drop. I find no need for water, it is a very "soothing" and easy to drink scotch.
I kept thinking this has almost the same nose as Johnny Walker Black. I did some research and found out that it is the predominante malt in JWB.
For $42.00 I will definitely get a bottle or two more.
