Special treat ladies and gentlemen! One of my hidden gems in this city (a bar of course) was able to get its hands on a bottle of Glentaite. Going at about $100 per bottle, you can see why it's not something you'd see everyday (at least not in Canada, it is however, distributed in the States as far as I know). Lucky for me, I was able to be there for the bottle opening and review this fine scotch for you.
Looks: Smooth amber, almost golden but not quite.
Smells: Honey, peat smoke, toffee, leather, oak.
Tastes: Quite oily feel. Tastes of nuts, spice, leather and a light touch of apricot and banana adding to the sweetness. Finishes a bit dry with some citrus, spice and a bit of pepper.
Looks: 4.5/5 - Clear bottle lets you see right away what you are in for, and it looks delicious.
Smells: 4/5 - Good smell, the leather is a bit dominant, but adds a lot to it's aroma.
Tastes: 9/5 - Great, plain and simple. Try to enjoy it's multiple layers.
Overall: 17.5/20 - Excellent bottle, if you get one, be sure to enjoy it, not just down it. A bit on the pricey side, but worth every penny.
