Ron Zacapa Centenario Sistema Solera 23
Back at the tail end of last year i was offered the opportunity to sample a Drinks By The Dram advent calendar, my biggest issue with that is that the Whisky ones offer a large amount of drams that i've already sampled and reviewed for the blog, and with a backlog already of samples it was time for something different.

Compass Box Phenomenology
'Phenomenology: The Philosophical study of the Structures of experience and consciousness' Epic Name.

Compass Box No Name
This is Compass Box's 'Peatiest Dram Yet' (Damn Right) this Whisky is an absolute beast, 75.5% of this liquid is from Ardbeg (one of my personal favourites) and it really comes through.

Springbank 14 Year Old Bourbon Wood
It has been a quite a while since I last reviewed for Tom, no real reason other than work, tasting whisky without dissecting the flavours or taking notes, just enjoying whisky the way I fell in love with whisky and probably to annoy Tom, some laziness.

Ardbeg An Oa
I'm a big fan of Ardbeg distillery, Ardbeg 10 year was the first 'heavily' peated whisky I had tried many moons ago (well I thought it was the smokiest thing I had ever tasted at that point) so Ardbeg holds a special place in my heart.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye
We use Woodford Reserve Straight Rye as our house pour rye for the last year or so, it’s got a decent back bone and stands up in classic rye based cocktails, but I have never got really into it in depth straight up as I always use it for mixing, so this should be interesting.

Few Rye
As a brand Few are extremely trendy, with cool branding and a great backstory.

Bulleit Frontier Whisky 95 Rye
Bulleit predicted the rye boom before I had even properly got into whisky

Michters US*1 Straight Rye Whiskey

Jack Daniels Single Barrel Rye
I was lucky enough to try Jack Daniels single barrel Rye for the first time a few months ago, it's the first new mash recipe since 1866 (Mind Blown!), I was quite surprised to hear that Jack Daniels was getting involved in the rye boom!

Highland Park 12yr Cask 1140 (World Duty Free Gatwick Exclusive)
I have a love hate relationship with Highland Park with some being ones i love and others i don't so when i was invited to join a twitter tasting to sample the new 12 year old single cask which will be exclusive to London Gatwick airport i jumped at the chance.

SMWS 76.108 Raspberry Ruffles
This dram from the distillery known as the Beast of Dufftown, is a perfect example of how brilliant single casks can be and how complex.

Mortlach 1971-1996 (Gordon and MacPhail)
This was handed to me by a lovely customer at work, and is from a bottle distilled in 1971 and bottled in 1996.
