Haven’t tried their old fashion mixer But their Bloody Mary one is awesome
There's a guy from LI who used to go around to local bars pushing his bloody mary mix. I'd see him at our Sunday football hangout spots. And the mix was really good. Looks like he got a good distribution deal. If you see Murph's Famous Bloody Mary mix, (assuming the recipe hasn't changed siince he got distribution), I definitely recommend it.

I had both Hakushu and the Spaniard. Loved both. Once you get to to the other 2 please let me know how they are.

By the way not sure if you had the Yamazaki 12. Same distillery. Yamazaki is more licorice, vanilla - highland scotch like forward. Hakushu a more floral, fruit forward like some Irish whisky. At least that’s the profile I am getting from those 2.

Dan, the Clynelish 14 is one of my favorite scotches to date. I went through the bottle in about 3 months. That's probably the fastest I've drank a bottle so far. The Yellowstone is a store pick and is 115 proof. I've tried the Spaniard and liked it, which is why I bought it and I've never had the Yamazaki or the Hakushu, but I really like the Hibiki.

I guess I have to pick up Clynelish 14. And if you liked Hibiki you will like both Hakushu and Yamazaki. Same smoothness but more complex flavors

I like this reviewer (GWhisky). He didn't give this a great score, but he seemed happy with it. I watch 6 or 7 different YouTubers, but rely on friends or actual tasting as often as possible.
GWhisky, Scotch4Dummies, and Ralfy have reviews I enjoy on youtube
An English friend recommended this to me and as I mentioned in a previous post it might be one of my favorites today. We'll see in a year or two if it has grown on me or fallen off.
