Old Overholt$12
Next time you take a shot of this rye, take a minute and actually smell the whiskey. You'll notice a pleasing aroma full of dark grain, char smoke, and cherry vanilla cola. The whiskey is quite hollow on your palate and not very full, but the finish is pleasing enough. You are left with the dark grain and char wood aromas.
Nose is marshmallow over a campfire and baking spices. Palate is a middle of tongue burn with an oily mouth feel, butter, burnt sugars, dried fruit and honeysuckle. Finish lingers with maple syrup, dried fruits, and honey.

Just opening up the bottle, let alone pouring and taking a sip, you'll get a campfire aroma wafting in the air. Cigar ash and medicinal camphor comes into play, but you will find other notes such as lemon zest, pears, and a smidgen of honey. The whisky is oily and reminds you of smoked mackerel, but there is also a sweet spot of dark chocolate on the mid-palate. All of this is to say, please, if you haven't already, dive head first into this dram. We live once.
Balvenie 14yr$16
Aging whisky in rum casks can be a tricky proposition as they whisky can become overly "rummed". To be successful, the rum should just enhance the whisky, not overpower it. The Balvenie have done well here. Tropical fruits, vanilla, and honey are present, but it isn't intensely molasses or funky.
There are a fair amount of layers to this 12 year old whisky starting with the aroma: dark honey, cereal, citrus, and vanilla. The sherry really comes on the scene when you taste the whisky with cinnamon, dried fruits, and bitter chocolate. The finish is pleasant and of decent length. In short, for the price, it's a solid choice.
The aroma is pleasantly sweet and full of cereal, honey, and apples. There is a slight floral quality intertwined with more honey and cereal on the palate with the whisky coming to an end with oak notes. The White Label is never over-powering and really does well on the rocks.
Glenfiddich 12yr$16
Aged predominately in used American whiskey barrels, the 12 year is aromatic with orchard fruits, butterscotch, and wood spices. There are tasting notes of oatmeal with cinnamon on the palate and though the finish is brief, it goes gentle into that good night.
Glenfiddich 18yr$28
If ever there was a whisky that brings to mind "liquid fruitcake", this is it. The dried candied fruits, ginger, vanilla, baking spices and toffee just screams "fruitcake"
Glenlivet 12yr$14
There are times that you want an über complex, confounding, whisky to consume. And sometimes you just want a drink. The Glenlivet has pleasant aromas of toasted cereal, pears, and honey. The finish has more honey and vanilla but the whisky doesn't stay with you for the long haul. And that's okay because sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.
Highland Park 12yr$15
The sweet aroma is very inviting and draws you in closer to inspect the dram. The honey'd and vanilla fragrance takes a turn on the palate replaced by grass and pineapple. A lemon twist or two comes next with the peat smoke just teasing your senses.
Highland Park 15yr$22
The peated smoke seems to be more intense in the 15 year old bottling particularly on the nose. It's got a sweet midsection with apple and spice and everything nice. On the finish, you find salted peanut brittle and smoke.
Highland Park 18yr$29
The sweet smoke is the underlying feature in this whisky but the complexity of the dram is what is most enjoyable. Among the many notes found were oyster mushrooms, fresh cut apples, kelp, cigar ash, honey, sea salt, and smoked bacon. Velvety and indulgent, the whisky finishes on the dry side with mouthwatering acidity.
Hudson Single Malt$16
Nose grape nuts, puffed grain cereal, and some oak sweetness. Palate: grains, oak, char, and some heat.
Intense peat smoke, with iodine and bandaids coming through. This is an intense, peated whisky and not for the faint of heart or those that hate smoke in a glass. For those that have a nose and keep searching you may just find, vanilla, pears and some honey under all that smoke.

There is a beeswax component on the aroma with lemon peel, applesauce, and fresh cut grass. As you taste the whiskey, the lemon tartness comes first followed by some toasted cereal, cinnamon, and honey. There is a bitterness to the finish but that can be squashed quickly if you take another sip.
Jameson 12yr$18
Jameson 12 doesn't get a lot of attention, and that is unfortunate. Those folks that just know the standard Jameson offering would be in for quite a surprise. The range of tastes go from honey, ripe pear, buttered toasted nuts, and dark caramel. The whisky is smooth and has an enjoyable finish.
Jameson Black Barrel$15
The nose is full of grains, apple skins, and citrus. Smoke is present, but not overwhelming. On the palate, char smoke is blended with the fruit and the whiskey is smooth as you swallow. With a name like "Black Barrel", one might make the assumption of an over smoked, bitter whiskey. Jameson has balanced the smoke and fruit aspect quite nicely.
On the nose: Oats, honey, frosted flakes and blooming, sun drenched, honeysuckle. Palate: creamy, slightly malty with full fat, Irish buttered toast. Slight spice comes through in the beginning and end. Finish is long and easy with some of that spiced honey coming through.
Redbreast 12yr$16
A healthy dose of orange marmalade presents itself along with toast and coconut. Dried red fruit, cloves, and honey round out the palate and leads to a creamy and lengthy finish. All in all, a balanced and satisfying whiskey.
Redbreast 15yr$20
The nose is still filled with toast and honey, but this time there is a lemon bitterness as well. The wood spices also speak a little louder in the 15 year than in the 12 year with a pleasant bite at the finish.
Lots of soft vanilla notes on the nose, with a slight hit of spice near the end. A developing spice forms on the palate, with rich herbs, vanilla and caramel dancing until it mellows with a tingle on the long finish
Tullamore Dew$12
The Original is quite enjoyable with sweet cereal, barrel spices, and some honeyed nuts. It is a fairly straight forward affair, not overly oily, bitter, or sweet but it does have a bit of a brassy quality to it. There is a smoothness to the whiskey, and while it isn't necessarily one you'd be slowly sipping, it is perfectly acceptable as a shot or a mixer.
