I recently inherited a handful of already opened bottles. A fantastic oppurtunity to try new stuff!
Highland Park 15: Lovely, honey, sweet cherry, but I did not find it shockingly better than the 12.
Macallan 15 (Fine Oak): Amazing nose. When I first put it in the glass I was quite happy but gets a little boring/harsh towards the end. Good, but just not great.
Oban 14: Is it just me, or is this quite dull?
Clynelish 14: Good, steady, salty. I liked quite a bit but was not distinctive. Am I missing something?
Balvenie 15: Incredible, sweet, with bitter undertones. Very complex to my tongue.
Balvenie 10 Founder's Reserve: Powerful, strong, complex. Are bottles of this available??
It's ironic that my favorites were the Balvenie's as I'm generally a Talisker/Lagavulin/Laphroiag drinker. The sweet usually isn't my style.
