Angel's Envy. Decent enough, but a bit confused I think. Maybe a bit more port influence would help sort it out. Might buy another one in a few years if they're still around to see how it evolves.

Laphroaig Triple Wood. Too much wood. I'd be interested in trying a double wood if they wanted to ditch the quarter casks. . .

Highland Park 18 years. The good news is the LCBO has more. Come to think of it the LCBO seems to have an unlimited supply of single malts.

Killed the Sunnybrook Kentucky blend last night. Very sweet but uncomplicated dram.

Me thinks you either got a god-awful bottle, you don't like sherry or things have severely changed since the first batches of the new 50/50 vattings.

Kilbeggan. Decent enough, just nothing special and not really my cuppa. Won't be buying another of these.

I found a new found appreciation for American Rye Whiskey. Even though this bottle was not that great.

I am going with god-awful bottle. But I have had someone comment that they agreed with my notes. I do really enjoy Sherry influence in whisky, but the Dalmore just tasted dirty, with molding and rotting oranges. Very little of the nut or spice flavors often found in sherry bottles, and the only fruit was that rancid orange.
