Blind tasting flight by Whisky Hedonist Malaysia

It's my first #blindtasting session, I'm excited to join this and had fun, it's definitely frustrating to identify, some have obvious notes which i was so confident but failed badly. ๐Ÿ™„

Countless times I was told to be patient and slowly savor and appreciate whisky but there's this drive inside me that wants to taste as much as possible. Very importantly the journey can't be rushed which I've to consistently remind myself. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Also to drink and savor with appreciation on the liquid rather then the label, as I'm new I'm still excited tasting many whiskies. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Below are my notes prior to submission , I wont state my wrongly guessed details ๐Ÿ˜‚
