I liked the old Select from around 2000 to 2005. Wasn't a big fan of the mid 1990s version though as it was kind of perfumey.

Talisker 25, 2009. Very nice bottle and enjoyed with my wife's uncle. Yeah, I corrupted him a few years ago when I visited. :D

Speyburn 10...dead. However, 1/2 of it was given away so not too hard to finish.

Bud Light is here so the bottles are going down

I did these on the recent trip to Skye:
G&M CC Aberfeldy 1996 46%. Very nice
Poit Dhubh 12yo. Nicer.
Poit Dhubh 21yo. Yummy.

And got back to find Bud in the house:
We didn't exactly empty it, but the Highland Earl was so good I gave the remaining 2/3 to one of the neighbours.
Then the Tullamore Dew Phoenix. Now that was good.
Robbie Douglas North British 21yo. That was also a great bottle.
Sheep Dip 1999 Amaroso Oloroso. Weird but fun.
Glenmorangie Traditional 100 Proof. An old favourite that is sadly missed.
Pittyvaich 12yo F&F ...
The Cutty Sark Prohibition Edition. This didn't last long at all.
Jura 1984. Pretty decent Jura.

And hopefully you took proper care of the bottles so that you don't step on them in the middle of the night. :thumbsup:

Jack Daniel's 1904 Gold Medal... If memory serves me well, this represented the first special edition release in the JD portfolio. Definitely a cut above many other JD itinerations, and exhibiting an uncommon degree of complexity and balance.

Emptied OP Navigator and Bowmore Small Batch Reserve last night, but they were both nearly empty when gifted to me (read: left behind).
