Connemara. Good, but unusual. I might try one of the other expressions some day, but probably not this one.

Amrut Fusion. I really loved this on opening day, then it settled into mediocrity for a while, but these last few drams have risen back up to the occasion. A tasty one for sure. Probably would buy another if I came across one.

Glenmo Artein. Not a bad whisky but definitely not worth $80. The wine cask easily overpowers the spirit.

Sazerac NAS. Incredible stuff. Will definitely pick up another when they come back into town.

Woodford Reserve Master's Collection Aged Cask Rye. Quite nice on the nose, but a bit of a letdown otherwise. Woody, but otherwise too muted.

Funny I feel the same way about the Woodford Reserve Distillers Select Bourbon.

Johnnie Walker Swing. Hasn't aged too well in the bottle, but still probably the best JW short of Blue. I'd buy another bottle maybe if I came across one in person, but I don't expect to special order again. Too pricey.

Hibiki 12yo. A good bottle worth the $45 I paid. A casualty of the move.
