Natterjack Irish Whiskey

...American Whiskey soaked pipe tobacco. Our spice drifts softly down over the top of it all, black pepper, cinnamon and a light puff of nutmeg, all well complimenting the taste of the whiskey and a mouth feel of melted ice cream. Our finish is just as nice, soft, surprisingly delicate and long, milky way chocolate bars...

SMWS 35.190 – Hot Apple and Cinnamon Spice

...chilli comes back, this time accompanied by dark chocolate, crispy rose petals, charred plums, hoi sin sauce and a nice duck rolls dipped in oyster sauce. It grows thick and heavy after a time, the sherry becoming all the range of the whisky; punchy dried dark fruits, more dark chocolate, cayenne pepper, capsicum, and cloves, before becoming increasingly tannic...

Amrut Single Malt

...laughing demon made of sulphur and plastic, the burning of old garbage bags that have been left in the sun for too long.

Goalong Liquor Whiskey (Special Small Batch Whiskey)

...Banana slices fall down upon sweet grass shavings, flowers coming back again, this time dusted with caster sugar. More fruits come through, gnashi, red apples chunks, green apple peel and pears before fudge and butterscotch. Barley sugars, sweet watermelon...

McDowell’s No.1 Reserve Whisky

...but has a firm woody background that allows us to over see these treats; caramel cubes, raspberry bonbons, lemonade jelly beans and a distinct hint of E150 dropped lightly over everything. I kept thinking to myself that it was artificial, but that wasn't a bad taste to my surprise. It kept up with a merry smile, and was quite pleasing. The finish is long, quite sweet, and gains clarity...

Widow Jane 10 Year Old

...fudge and the ice cream, smooth and silken caramel, wafers, maple syrup and oranges alongside some oxidising copper, it really is an interesting palate. It's slightly puckering, which somewhat confuses the palate given the taste, but rolls into more vanilla pod and cherries...
