it has ardmore and tasting notes mention bacon fat. So to Teachers! I'd like to get something similer

teachers is rich, creamy, savory, with a toffee lolly chew too in it. and smoke

CB not mention of spysides.just islat and ardmore.

i dont want a laphroig 10 40% like textue that is just pure soft in much.
or a citrus sherbet tang malt.





here what i thinking
HANKEY BANNISTER original
HANKEY BANNISTER 12
Tomatin 12
COMPASS BOX Peat monster 1
Aberlour a’bunadh dont like real dry and nutty. glendronach was fine with me
ardmore traditional

How about Laphroaig Triple Wood?

From Whiskey Notes:

Laphroaig Triple Wood (48%, OB 2008)

Nose: lots of camomile and a bit of butter. Smoky with a sweet edge. A bit of coconut, banana and apple. Basically the same flavours as the Quarter Cask, but maybe a tad less “barbecued”, more musty and with an additional layer of balanced sweetness. Less peat smoke than a regular Laphroaig, but just as medicinal (iodine). Mouth: full-bodied and pretty fruity. Again lots of camomile and camphor, like peated camomile tea. Not immediately smoky and quite a gentle, velvety impact. Toffee and vanilla. Liquorice. Woodsmoke. Finish: cigarettes in yesterday’s ashtray. Creamy aftertaste, rather sweet with hints of coffee and chocolate.

what you think of these? store has these.

Aberlour, A’Bunadh. so it just strong syrupt and wood and spice?
read it caky but unsure on wood balance.

Big Peat. is this malty or just oily.

Hankey Bannister no age blend Malt. carmal added looks fine unlike rest.
just as no spirit reek toxic. too drink neat/water.

BENRINNES 12 malt cask. (charged sherry butts) net says rubbery, honeywaxy.

ardmore traditional. no age
what you think bushmills blackbush. still fresh or too woody.
