n:  Delicious.  Fruit salad heavy on the maraschino cherries.

 

p:  Little hot.  Flavors bounce everywhere.  Cherry and prune pie that leads towards oranges and gunpowder in the finish.  Obsolutely fun but not for the timid.  Farmers Market gone wild.

 

B/B+

n:  Metallic mustiness that may just be from the old bottle.

 

p:   Vegetal and springtimey but only enough for a weak smile rather than and Sound of Music number.  Goes down easily.

The nose has young peat notes with a malty background and maybe some white wine.

The Palate is sweet with strong peat.

The finish is just peaty.

 

Solid, bold Laphroaig, tastes younger than 13 years.

The nose has sweet sherry. The palate has a nice sherry/peat mix which leads into a sweet, sherry finish with strong peat on the nose. Nicely balanced if a bit on the sweet side.

The nose has great peat with sherry in the background which gradually moves to the fore; it comes together beautifully.

On the palate it's got peat up front with some light sherry notes on th edges. The finish is smoke and soil. It feels a bit weak for being cask strength (though it's only 51%), but otherwise, it's a very nice whisky.

The nose has light bourbon notes with some banana. On the palate it opens sweet with caramel notes, then develops some red wine like savory notes and some nice oak. It fades into a pleasing roasted marshmallow finish which is followed by dry oak notes. Water adds complexity, bringing out earthy, hay and grass notes as well as additional oak.

 

This is nice stuff. It's well balanced, has some complexity of flavor, and is fantastic for the price.

The nose is understated with light rye and caramel. The palate has sweet hot cocoa, simple syrup and light medicinal notes but not a lot of rye character, which is typical of Beam ryes (though this one is supposed to have a higher rye mashbill than their standard rye). The finish is sweet and mild.

 

This is a perfectly decent whiskey that's soft and sweet but has very little rye character. As with most Beam rye whiskeys, it's a good rye for people who don't like rye. Those folks who like their whiskey "smooth" will love it.

Water helps greatly with openening the nose.  Palate is fine with some sweetness and waxy licorice flavors on the short finish.  C+ without water.
