Deanston 10 PX Finish – 57.5% ABV – $79.95 (LCBO) Ok, I'll up be up front with this one... It's probably not going to be to everyone's taste, but it's definitely in the wheelhouse of my palate. It's a BIG sherry influence, and if you don't like that or you don't like sweeter whiskies, this … Continue reading Whisky Musings – Deanston 10 PX finish review
https://youtu.be/78mmoLfdygg Glenfarclas 12 (Speyside) - 43% ABV - $74.95 (LCBO) Nose: Full and fruity, and fresh in a way that reminds me of a glade or orchard after a rainfall.

Light vanilla and oakiness follow underneath. Palate: Sweet, but not dessert-malt level. The tropical fruit is still predominant, … Continue reading Whisky Musings #4 – Aultmore 12
The third Green Malt whisky review takes us to the west coast of Scotland with the highland malt Oban 14. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/9GaQCVnHyOo
I posted a written version of the Oban review over at reddit.com/r/scotch, and I thought I would post it up here as well, cuz... why not? Oban is a town and distillery I had the opportunity to visit, and I found that the town and the spirit had a remarkably similar quality. Like the malt, … Continue reading Oban 14 Year Old: Redux…
