TYPICALLY, THE CATHOLIC MAN SHOW WILL CONSIST OF 3 PARTS: A manly “drink” A manly “gear” A manly “topic” ALL 3 PARTS WILL HAVE A THEME OF A VIRTUE THAT A CATHOLIC MAN SHOULD OBTAIN. HERE IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE 3 PARTS TO THIS WEEK’S SHOW CALLED, “Apologetics 101”: PART 1: THE MANLY “DRINK” DISTILLER’S DESCRIPTION: The Review This bottle costs $82.99 at Astor Wines and $85.99 at KLWines. At this price we’ve found few malts that get it this right. This scotch is actually smokier than Lagavulin, we’d say by around 15%. While it does not have quite the smoothness and balance of The Lag, the increased smokiness and peat flavor is a welcome variation and is exciting to drink. We give Bunnahabhain Toiteach an A-. If you are looking for a bottle in this range, especially something that really stands out and will add a unique dimension to your collection, this is a must have.Comparison to Other BottlingsBunnahabhain produces a number of unique bottlings under different distributors and releases. The most common are the Bunnahabhain 12-year and the 18-year. The 12-year is pretty easy to find and usually runs around $45/bottle. The 18-year is more difficult to come by (at the time of this post it is available here at KLWines and costs a premium $109.99. The 12-year and the 18-year are both very respectable scotches, however the Toiteach is a completely different whisky. The traditional Bunnahabhains have only a hint of the peat and smoke that is present in this variation. Personally, having tried all three, this one knocks it out of the park. I felt that the 18 was delicious but not quite a homerun at over $100. The 12 is a nice choice for a mellow mid-range scotch that is a bit off the beaten path. However the Toiteach is far-and-away the winner – well worth the additional cost above the standard bottle and also a much better value than the 18. Review taken from smokybeast TASTING NOTES Aroma: Charming peatiness with a subtle nose, prickling strength emanates from the dram. Palate: Immediate warming peaty flavours drift towards a slightly sweet sherry influence with delicate peppery notes. Finish: Good robust length with extremely pleasant aftertaste.
