Glenmorangie Signet

Highland Scotches are great, I drink a lot of them, but this particular bottle stood out. I received this bottle of Glenmorangie Signet from a friend as a birthday gift last year. I’ve enjoyed sipping on it since then, with today being the end of my bottle. I get booze a lot, because my friends known I love scotch, but this bottle was exceptional. I already miss it.

Casajús 2006 Vendimia Seleccionada Tempranillo

As you may know I’m pretty biased towards Spanish reds. I found this wine to be a pretty tasty selection. It’s not my all time favorite by any means, but I really enjoyed the oaky aromas and exceptional dryness. I really like a dry wine. I know some have criticized this bottle for not being fruity enough, calling it flat, but it really was in my opinion a good example of what we expect from a Tempranillo. It’s a low acidity wine, it’s not supposed to be very fruity unless it’s blended. This wine was produced in Ribera del Duero and aged for three months in tank, six months in french and american oak with a 14% alcohol content. It should also mature with age and be highly drinkable throughout this decade. I enjoyed the solid cherry flavor and some of the earthy and medicinal tastes. The price was also very reasonable at about $20 USD at my local liquor store.

A great wine from Ribera del Duero.
