Opened an old bottle of Glenmo portwood finish at a friends house. I much prefer it to the new bottle (LS or QR I always get them mixed up).

The latest Springbank 18. Nice layered nose, the sherry most prominent on the finish.

bruichladdich 12yo second edition. i really didn't like this one - might try it a few more times before relegating it to a mix-with-coke whisky :(

Bladnoch 8yr bourbon barrel. Expected grassy, summer meadow notes. A bit more distinctive than the previous 6yr old.

Nikka From the Barrel. Surprisingly soft nose for 51%. Terrific whisky.
