NV Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky Lasanta, 46%

Highlands more

6/20/2015 - Rezy13 Likes this wine: NR

Thought this was the most successful and distinctive of this tier, Sherry note really comes out but in a complementary ethereal way, this still has nice pop and focus as well as a touch less heat than the Quinta Ruban and Nectar d'Or.

Very unique, loads of peat, iodine, leather, smells like Swamp Thing but in a good way, a bit of a palate wrecker so do not drink anything subtle after this; relating this to wine it reminds me of rustic leathery CdP.

Wow, intense, surprised alcohol is so high, holds it well, cleaner than the Uigedail and more precise, very different.

Really interesting Scotch, impressive packaging; deeper color; chocolate malts really come out, very luxurious on the nose a great fullness on the palate, grainy maltiness is different; not my style but very nice.

My favorite from today's tasting. Golden straw color; fresh, salty, lots of heather, grain, high toned, great balance; not cheap but worth it.

Corked. Could smell it on the cork pull and it increased as it sat in the glass.

Father's Day Dinner (Woodstock, GA): Very pale color, medium sized bubbles; fairly restrained nose and palate, nice freshness, a little toast, hint of vanilla, almond, apple and pear; not a Champagne to wow but a very pleasant drink.

2010 G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe

6/21/2015 - Rezy13 Likes this wine: 91 points

Father's Day Dinner (Woodstock, GA): Similar to my note on 4/17 this wine performs above its weight class again; it was great to see this elegant floral fresh and fruit driven Barolo alongside a well aged 1998 (Einaudi), the drinkability wins me over, could absolutely drink a bottle without any fatigue, silky but prominent tannin structure, great acidity displays itself as sour red cherry, floral and stimulating bouquet of roses and red licorice; really drinking well with 2 hours in decanter; need to get some.

1998 Poderi Luigi Einaudi Barolo Costa Grimaldi

Nebbiolo more

6/21/2015 - Rezy13 Likes this wine: 94 points

Father's Day Dinner (Woodstock, GA): Color looks great, deep reddish crimson with only a little rust at rim, tons of sediment and wine seemed to get darker as the quantity diminished; nose is classic aged Barolo but so fresh at the same time, love the aged character of properly stored wine, still loads of fruit, high toned floral rose, pure red cherry, anise, sandalwood, and earth, no soy, celery seed, cardamom; on the palate this starts off very focused and stays that way until the back end where this really shows off the earth, iron rich soil of Terlo is awesome here, grainy and caressing tannin that envelops your mouth, nice ripe fruit, leather, balsamico, sweet wood, anise, depth, richness, and tons of character; really awesome!; still love Einaudi.

2009 Domaine le Sang des Cailloux Vacqueyras Cuvée Lopy

Red Rhone Blend more

6/21/2015 - Rezy13 Likes this wine: 92 points

Father's Day Dinner (Woodstock, GA): Deep purple with bright rim; initially seemed Bretty on cork pull- revisited 3 hours later and no sign, wow this is great stuff, reeks of green and black olives, a myriad of herbs, lavender, violets, tar, mineral, almost seems like N. Rhone; on the palate much of the same notes but the Grenache really comes out, dark fruit, sour plum, berries, garrigue, Band-Aid, mineral, fairly caressing tannin; rustic in style but tons of great character, a beautiful bottle that really distinguishes itself from CdP or Gigondas, reminded me a bit like Cornas on the nose and the palate was a combination of good CdP and Gigondas; need to get more; 92+.

6/21/2015 - Rezy13 Likes this wine: 91 points

Father's Day Dinner (Woodstock, GA): Deep golden yellow; well put together and showing good balance, I think the extra age has helped along with the hot 2006 vintage, acid is fairly round, lime is strong then replaced in the back by pineapple, lots of honey; easy to drink; went well with ceviche.
