133 – Michel Couvreur The Unique
Ok this is a bit of a strange one for me. Onion skin, tobacco smoke, leather, slight sulfur and a touch of vanilla. It’s not bad just not my thing. It tastes hot, way more than 44%. Just not sure about it.
130 – Cadenhead Small Batch Auchroisk 24 Years
Brown sugar and butter, with wattle seed and cola. Buttery palate with a hint of rubber.
131 – Yamazaki 1998 Rare Sherry Cask
Banoffee pie, cola, peanut butter and Pedro Ximenez. This thing is delicious, expensive, but delicious.
132 – Balvenie Tun 1509 Batch 1
Spicy banana bread, yeasty, nutmeg and a slight green medicinal tone. I found tropical fruit, almost like the tropical cordial I remember as a kid and some orange peel on the palate.

As you can probably tell, I’m a bit of a sherry head. I don’t mind a bit of peat every now and then, but I’ll probably complain about it being like licking a fireplace or too medicinal.
