Hibiki 12. I'd never guess this was a blend.

Old Crow bourbon. Never tried this. Will give some thoughts in a bit.

I forgot I opened a celebratory dram Monday. Prime Malt Bruichladdich 13, 1991. While nothing outstanding it is very drinkable. I probably won't touch this till the opening of the KINGS' season next fall.

Some initial thoughts up in WAYDN thread.

Next open is the Old Crow Reserve bourbon.

I bought a bottle of Johnnie Walker Platinum Label from the Dubai duty free store, a one litre bottle for US $100. It is a 18 year old and it is nice, though for value for money the "double black" is better.

Johnnie Walker-double black is smokey and a little peaty too. I love it.

I always forget about this thread....

Corner Creek Reserve bourbon, Four Roses bourbon, Weller Antique 107 brand, and Pendleton. Perhaps several others since I last posted.

Opened a Kirkland small batch bourbon tonight. Such a good deal on a quality bourbon.
