Caol Ila 12... although I'm very tempted to open up one of my unopened Japanese ones as well! (Trying to pace myself here, heh...) Although I am doing some Japanese translation at the moment, would think it'd be fitting to open up a Japanese bottle. Ah, maybe once I'm done with it.

Caol Ila 28yo 55.2% from Bladnoch. As long as Raymond keeps bottling these fantastic casks and offering them at such reasonable prices, I'll keep drinking them. :D

Oops that'd be Nikka Pure Malt White, not Black. I really don't understand why the edit button is only available in certain places :evil:

Having screwed up and oversold my allocation of Chapter 6 (mea culpa)
I bailed my self out by snaring a bottle from those helpful chaps at the Whisky exchange.
Whilst at it I thought why not buy a bottle of Four Roses small batch
Been meaning to try it for a while
Happy amber in colour with a very flashy sweet nose that is held in check by a streak of charcoal
More sweetness and some good poke to the palate it's less sweet than the nose would suggest with some more complex smokey notes that suprised me
and it's very long.
Great value for money

so still no chapter 6 from St George to drink
please tell me it's nasty
