Another 21yr, this time a blend. Thinner than I expected, lot of heat in the gnosis, smokier than usual for a blend. Overall very nice, with a little more character than you’ll find in equivalents from the big name blends.

Took a gamble on this rye. Not only because the last few MGP-sourced ryes I’ve had were disappointing (The Senator, Knotter Rye), but also I’ve never had this mashbill before (51% rye, 49% malted barley). I’m a big Smoke Wagon (especially barrel proof) fan and it was retail so why not. I don’t have a sophisticated palette, so I can’t provide a proper review, but I was very impressed. Not as spicy as many ryes, and not as hot as the proof suggests. Thick mouthfeel, unique finish. (Lager v ale) 🥃

A bottle kill of Aberlour 18. My father in law drained like half this bottle when he house sat and he doesn’t even like scotch 🙄 Now onto 41 year old rum (aged 25 years). There can’t be much of this English Harbour floating around still.

Today ended way too late - so a 21y single malt is a fantastic surprise!

The nose has a bit of blue cheese funk to it. Overall super-smooth yet with a good higher-proof kick. Has a weird bitterness and decayed mushrooms on the finish.

Not a fan. Glad I’m not stuck with an expensive bottle, but still happy to have tried it.

Let the holidays commence!

Sweet nose, but then a hit of savory spice on the tongue with an insanely long finish that is all cigar.

I wouldn’t drink this with a cigar, because you wouldn’t notice it, but it’s insane how much that finish lingers and mimics the mouth tingle after smoking a cigar.
