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.

Suntory Toki Whisky

Suntory Toki Whisky

Don't let the (low) price scare you off. This isn't discount-grade Japanese whisky, but a graceful and well-crafted product. Not just for highballs! 
Overall Rating: ★★☆

Chivas Regal 18

Chivas Regal 18

Today, we're taking a look at a fun one. Chivas 18 is neither boring like its little brother nor overpriced like a lot of those no-goodnick Johnnie Walker products. It's not just a great blend, but a great whisky period. Overall Rating: ★★★

Absolut Oak

Absolut Oak

Up next: a weirdo liquor that defies categorization and begs for a reason to exist on the shelf. Much to my surprise, it turns out it ain't all that bad!  Overall Rating: ★☆☆

Girvan Patent Still No. 4 Apps Grain Whisky

Girvan Patent Still No. 4 Apps Grain Whisky

A light, otherwise boring whisky might be able to escape the sharpest barbs of criticism if the price was good. However, the distillers want about $45 for this, and at that price this bottle has nowhere to hide.  Overall Rating:
