The SnG Comprehensive List o' Whisky.
Aberfeldy 12yr: Highland. Very sweet from honey, notes of green apple, with a peaty finish.
Aberlour 10yr: Speyside. On the nose you have caramel with cherries and some peat. Mild in flavour with a light body.
Atholl Brose: Traditional Scottish Liqueur involving oatmeal, honey, whiskey and sometimes cream. Very sweet, with warm spices.
Auchentoshan 12yr: Lowland . A powerful Scotch with a fiery punch without the smoke. A certain sweetness lent to it by tangerine and creme brulee.
Aultmore 12yr: Speyside. A very light and sweet Scotch. Almost clear to the eye, hints of vanilla, honey and some citrus permeate through the dram.
Ballantine's Finest: Blended Scotch Whisky. A perfectly serviceable whisky with a bit of a rough edge. Not a complex scotch by any means, but it will do its duty.
Bowmore Small Batch: Islay. A heavily peated whisky reminiscent of Laphroaig - a Scotch to keep you warm on a cold night. Lovely if you like smoke.
Bowmore 12yr: Islay. A well-balanced dram, rounded peat, honey, and fruity flavours.
Bowmore 15yr: Islay. Fairly well balanced with a darker underbelly - smoke, wood, and syrup.
Bowmore 18yr: Islay. Deep fruit and wood combine with sweet smoke, reminiscent of jam.
Cardhu 12yr: Speyside. Citrus and vaporous alcohol on the tongue with a slight peatiness. Mild notes of hay throughout.
Chivas Regal 12yr:
Cutty Sark Yellow Label: Blended Scotch Whisky. A dirty, rapscallion of a whisky. Drink irresponsibly. Not for enjoying a dram.
The Deanston Virgin Oak: Highland. A certified Organic scotch, interestingly their distillery is powered by hydro energy. An unfortunately young whisky with a harshness that is overwhelming. Maybe some will enjoy its rough edges.
Dun Bheagan 6yr: Islay. A very peaty scotch with notes of orange peel. Very warming scotch, on the dessert-side of things. Great for a cold night.
Glenfiddich 12yr: Speyside. Velvety texture, without harshness. Some green apple and honey.
Glen Garioch 1797 Founder's Reserve: Highland. Citrus, green apple, subtle smoke, butterscotch.
The Glenfarclas 15yr: Highland. An impressive scotch at the beginning with a burst of floral sweetness and spices. The palate sneaks past quickly to a strong finish reminiscent of nuts and peat.
The Glenlivet 12yr: Speyside. Notes of caramel, floral and fruity aroma, very little peat.
The Glenlivet 15yr:
Glenlivet Nadurra Oloroso:
Glenkinchie 12yr: Lowland. Floral on the nose, a dry scotch with a wisp of peat. Easy drinking, a pleasant scotch.
Glenmorangie 10yr: Highland. A strong vanilla permeates through the overall sweetness of the whisky. Citrus rings through some oat flavour, a generally sweet scotch.
The Glenrothes: Speyside. Another sweet Scotch with a certain spiciness near the end of the tongue. Toasted grains permeate throughout.
Knockdhu AnCnoc Flaughter:
Lagavulin 16yr: Islay. A deliciously well-rounded scotch with subtle and balanced flavours. Peated, but not overwhelming. Thoroughly delicious.
Laphroaig Quarter Cask: Islay. Heavily peated, punch-you-in-the-face-flavour. Not for the feint of heart.
Laphroaig 10yr: Islay. Very smokey, with saltiness derived from sea-weed and the weather surrounding the distillery. Full-bodied with a slight sweetness.
Laphroaig 18yr: Islay. An incredible scotch that is well-balanced and oily. Smokiness is complimented by nuttiness, and floral flavours. Very deep flavours that take their time on the finish.
Laphroaig 25yr: Islay. Hits hard with peat at the beginning followed by sherry sweetness and a spicy apple flavour. A long and warm finish with slight saltiness distinct to Islay.
Macallan Gold: Highland. Fruity with chocolate notes on the nose. We paired with chocolate on the show, so the main flavour that came through there was cocoa - however notes of apple, citrus, and winter spice were detectable.
McClelland's: Speyside. Very drinkable, inoffensive, good introductory scotch.
Oban 14yr: Highland. Deep amber in colour, this smooth and light scotch delivers a preliminary sweetness and finishes with a pleasant amount of smoke.
Robbie Burns Arran: Island (Arran). A surprisingly drinkable Scotch, especially for those newer to whisky. An inoffensive and fruity dram with a fair share of caramel and citrus.
Scapa 16yr: Island (Orkney). Green apple on the nose, very light-bodied with no hints of peat. Slight citrus notes, added water opened up the flavours though that is personal preference.
The Singleton 12yr: Speyside. Lots of caramel on the nose, without the harshness of alcohol. A smooth scotch with some bitterness and smokiness. Lots of peat hammers through during the finish.
Te Bheag: Island Whisky. Great value blend of 8 to 11yr whiskeys from Speyside, the Highlands, and Islay - rich toffee and delicate peat.
Tomatin 12yr: Highland. Sweet on the nose, tart apple on the palate, with a clean fruity finish.
Writer's Tears: Irish Whiskey. An incredibly smooth, peaty whiskey with a nice sweetness on the tongue.
