St Albans (05): Mildly oxidised rubber aroma. Sweet caramel, mild fruits. Some whiskey flavours, but mostly just stale malt. Cheers anyway duff!

Cloudy red, no head. Aroma is apple and some other fruity notes. plus some smoke and caramel. Flavor is overly sweet and alcohol. Where is the Scotch? Shouldnít there be more Lagavulin character?

Bottle courtesy of Paul at his place during some football. Pours a red amber body no head. Aroma is whiskey, oxidation and light fruit. Lots of burning booze. Mouthfeel is thinner with notes of cherries, oak and whiskey barrel.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
At the risk of having my geek license revoked, I will tell you I didnít like this one. Appearance was fine, looked like liquor. Aroma had some wood to it, and syruppy sweetness, and medicine type aroma. Flavor wasnít overwelmingly sweet like some of the JW Leeís Harvest that Iíve had, but I didnít like what was there either. I think I perfer Listerine. Mouthfeel was viscous and sticky. Finish was slightly sweet. I might lay one of these down, but it wonít be me drinking it!

206 bottle from ethereal shared with mes and tashi as well. I dont like whisky. I didnt want to smell it, drink it, or go anywhere near it. But hey, it smells like lagavulin and tastes of lagavulin and for me it actually a lot better than the actual stuff. just covered in sugar.a bit like eating haggis in maple syrup.

Cask sample from the public house in Las Vegas. Bourbon like taste. I like the bubble do this was not my fave but I can appreciate this beer. Well done.

Tap @ Black Bottle. Pours a hazy, dark orange appearance with no head. Aroma is full of booze, smoked peat, Scotch, caramel, and a bit of citrus. Honestly, quite hard to drink. Boozy, big whisky, goopy orange candied flavor that is hard to swallow. I keep thinking that I would eventually this series but alas, I still donít like them.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark reddish brown. Nose was sweet with candies. Smokey / peat taste, charcoal, lots of sweet notes. but it has the most disgusting floaters ever like thick pieces of wood floating around in it. gross.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber, thin head and lacing. Nose of strong peat, licorice, medicinal band-aid. The flavor is overwhelming with peat and sweetness and a horrible, horrible finish. I feel like Iíve used my tongue to comb through the medicine cabinet. Ugh. I like a good peaty scotch but this blended something funky together with it and it just didnít jive.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2007 2004 bottle - pours thick, almost no head. smells of sweet port and burnt wood, lightly carbonated. dark amber color with dark orange. thick and sweet on the front of the tongue and overwhelming smoke flavor towards the back. thick oily coating as it goes down. Poured it cold but much better after sitting for a while and warming up. Too much burnt wood taste for me but good for a cold winter day by the fire.
