Battlhill Jura 11. While I can't say this is great whisky I will say that it is one of the more enjoyable Juras I've had. I would much rather have a dram of this than the OB offerings I've tried. I've posted notes over in the Live Tastings.

Whoops, forgot about the Battlehill Bowmore 8 as well. Again, notes in the Live Tastings. I would say this has many similarities to the younger OB bottlings but the floral character is different in this bottling.

Jameson Gold Reserve. Probably my favorite of the range. Perhaps the Irish of choice going forward, though it's a bit pricey.

Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX... A rather 'luxurious' whisky, I'd say (upon first impression)

Lagavulin 16. This one is good but not great. Really has a charred character and less of the sweetness from the sherry casks.
