Yup. Opened the Amrut TWE 10th Anniversary 63%, it takes a lot of water. I took it on vacation last week so it's gone already but i did find a couple older cask strength Amruts in the tip. Damn fine whisky.

Amrut is more warming than i remember. :roll:

Caol Ila 12
Port Charlotte An Turas Mor
Laphroaig Quarter Cask

I prefer Laphroaig Quarter cask of the three, well before most of Whiskies actually.

Glenfarclas 105 cask strength

A bit too overpowering for me without water, but with water it's absolutely delicious:
hazelnut and figs and a long dry finish.

I like them both but this is my preferred.... :smoke:

Those 20yo Bladnochs are a great whisky at a great price.

They recently sold a 23yo Single Cask for £125 a bottle. The previous 22 year old was less than half that. I heard a rumour that the 23yo was the last of the casks the distillery has from this era. I really should go looking for the info, but if this is the case i reckon it's worth it to grab with both hands any 20/21/22 year old Bladnoch one can find.

I don't think they have distilled for about 5 years. Whatever the issues are at Bladnoch, be it financial, or rumoured infighting, it doesn't come across as a well run ship.

G&M Linkwood Cote Rotie 1991. Spectacular whisky in celebration of Robbie Burns on January 25th. Right up there with my Port Ellen for my taste.

Tried a Glenfarclas afterwards and it tasted harsh and crass in comparison!

A spritely peppery Teerenpeli 8 yo 43% Single Malt from Finland. Lovely coffee notes and with water some good fruit. If it was cheaper i'd get it regularly.

Octomore Comus.
I've been curious about this one, and I think it grows on you with a little time and water. I've been collecting a few of this kind, and I'm thinking of doing a "heavily peated and beyond" tasting with a few Ardbegs including the Supernova 10 and another Octomore. Have any of you done that?
