Musky is very very happy.

Delighted as it is getting hard to come by now.

I had a couple of bottles under the tree on Christmas morning:

1. Laphroaig QC
2. Germain-Robin XO alambic brandy

I also bought a Scott's Selection 1977/2004 Glenlivet that was opened Christmas Eve with my in-laws. An excellent, Nadura-like 'livet.

The Germain-Robin XO brandy is amazing. If you're a sherry cask whisky lover, you really should try this. It's also very "accessible" for your friends who only drink spirits occasionally.

Same here Ganga. No one bought me anything whisky related, though thanks to Jeff, I ran over to our local shop and grabbed 2 Scott's Selections for myself (HP 1981, and OP 1977). hmm, Jeff I see some sample trading in our future.
