Chivas Regal Mizunara

Chivas Regal Mizunara

A usually-boring scotch label tries out an exciting concept for a brand extension. Surprise! It’s still boring.

I’ve had better, but I’ve certainly had worse. Compelling if you can find it cheap!

Is it horrendous? No. Is it overpriced and only a shadow of what the distillery has to offer? Absolutely.

Dewar's 12-Year Blended Scotch

Dewar's 12-Year Blended Scotch

This one snuck up on me. You guys know I'm a sucker for a focused, well-considered flavor profile, and this is a direct hit. Value-minded drinkers may find a new favorite.

Ballantine's 12 Scotch Whisky

As if the world didn't have enough reason to care about age-stated blended scotches. In a word: Ballantine's 12 is overcomplicated.
