Notes from the Whiskey Boyz

de Vere’s Whiskey Society 
Tuesday, September 7, 2010
Rachel did us the honors. 

      This was the official launch of de Vere’s new format. Tonight 20% night. Next week’s a flight.
 
Jack: Laphroaig: http://www.laphroaig.com/home.asp. Fragrant full nose pear flavor. A bit of water really brings out the flavor; designed to do so. Oban 14: http://www.malts.com/index.php/en_can/Our-Whiskies/Oban Nice bite, not much aroma, very friendly back taste (whatever that means).

Tom: Glenlivet 16 Nadurra, Cask Strength: http://www.theglenlivet.com/nadurrarange/. Floral licorice, about 94 proof. Cast means it hasn’t been diluted with water; straight from the cask. Peaty, Stays with you, “ummmm.”

James L.: Glenrothes Special Reserve: http://www.theglenrothes.com/uk/. Light nose. Does remind me of Walker (see Ralph’s comment). Very good. Highland Park: http://www.highlandpark.co.uk/. Great, light peat nose. No finishes; doesn’t linger.

Ralph: Glenrothes Special Reserve: Kinda has mellow floral fragrance. Reminds me of Johnny Walker.
