Mortlach 12 year old

The nose on 43.4% expression is very floral with some wheaty breakfast biscuits and spicy notes.  The taste is very smooth with baked spiced apples (maybe even slightly burnt) caramel and honey.  The finish has some slow building heat along with some Bovril (salty / meaty) notes.  Reminded me of good Texas barbeque brisket with strong spice bark.  Overall a ittle too much burnt, salty and bitter notes with not enough sweetness to balance it for me.

    Noah's Mill

    A 15 year old expression (which is pretty old for a bourbon) and comes in at a hefty 57% ABV.  The nose is a vanilla fudge overload, then comes oak and corn.  Rich and moresy, the 15 years in wood is evident.  The taste is smooth at first, but then comes the oak and some fruit sweetness.  A little bodied (based on nose) but still good.  The finish is a spice fest, cinnamon, pepper and cola at the end.  With water I got some rye notes, even mint and more fruits.  Great stuff.
