Nikka De Ta Blend.

A bit of a sulphurous mess that had to be killed off as a mixer.

Bruichladdich Rocks. Pretty decent. Might buy another bottle someday if the price comes down $10-$15. Would like to try Waves first, though.

You too, eh? I didn't particularly like that either. My latest bottle kill was Highland Park 12yrs. Before that was Yamazaki 12yrs.

Hart Brothers Benrinnes 17 1980

While not a bad whisky by any means, my high hopes for this on were never realised.

Glenrothes Select Reserve :yuk:

Thank the heavens above the tortuous year we've spent together is mercifully over. Gone and hopefully forgotton but me thinks the scars of this satanic brew have cut to deep.

Still devils spawn of a whisky, maybe you will find some sort of positive purpose in life in the recycle bin. Please have mercy and do not infect the other glass with your incidious remnants.

Forgot this: My very dear Laphroaig 10yo 1L 43% abv (they don't make them like that anymore in Europa) is gone.

Peatwise (can one say that?) I still have Laga 16, Tali 10 and a Benraich.. and some of the Single cask Connemara. I will survive..

I unfortunately knocked off the shelf a Caol Ila Unpeated 2006 59.8%. I did a proper job and the bottom of the bottle broke and within seconds I lost the whole lot. It's a bottle kill that I will not remember other than with regret. :cry:

Bushmills 16 Year Old this evening. :empty:

Not in a terrible hurry to replace this one given I currently have bottles of Black Bush, Bushmills 1608 400th Anni., Jameson 12 & 18 as well as Redbreast 12 on the go.

Nice whiskey, still.
