Scotch info:

-Macallan 12 year: Mahogany colour with a full, slightly 
sweet nose of toffee, ginger and dried fruits accompanied 
by sherry and cloves.

-Macallan Gran Reserve: Fiery red mahogany in colour with 
a very spicy nose and hints of vanilla. Dark and complex 
in character.

-Macallan 18 year: The most popular among single malt 
drinkers. Honeyed, wine-like sweetness in the aroma with 
hints of citrus dried fruits and an assertive sherry nose.

-Highland Park 12 year: Amber. Nose; smokey, 'garden bonfire' 
sweetness, heathery, malty, hint of sherry. Medium body, 
exceptionally smooth. Succulent palate, with smokey dryness, 
heather-honey sweetness, and maltiness.

-Highland Park 18 year: Burnished gold colour. Nose:
Warm aroma, honey, polished oak, fresh, oak, sap, peat. Palate:
Honey, vanilla and tobacco. Finish:
Drying in lightly spicy, fresh finish (cinnamon, ginger) 
with a splash of water some smokiness emerges

-Bunnahabhain: 12 Year Old Islay, 40% vol. Amber. A delicate 
nose, misty; starts simple, becomes more (straight) complex. 
The first impression is of drifting smoke, which passes, to 
be replaced by clean, fruit-associated scents of nectarines, 
rum-toft and oil of orange. (dilute) With water, the fruit 
scents become estery and the smoke takes on a burnt match note 
(or the sandpaper striker on a box of matches). Faint hint of rubber.  
The mouthfeel is delicate, drying and mouth-cooling. The 
overall effect is refreshing. This comes from a distinct minty-toffee 
flavour, with some smoke in the finish. After time the smoke 
vanishes altogether and aromas reduce to almost nothing.

-Tamdhu: This is a soft, medium weight, Malt. It yields a 
little sweetness and is very mellow.
