Celebrating your birthday? Live recommendations

Postby Muskrat Portage » Fri Jun 04, 2010 10:03 pm

Okay, here's a new topic for everyone: It's your birthday and you want to have a special dram or more to celebrate your nativity, what will you have?

As I'm celebrating 55 years today, I'm going to the Lair for a Laggy until I can decide on my next dram. What would you as a whisky drinker, recommend be enjoyed next? Take a look at "My whiskies" and give your opinion of what should be enjoyed next.

When your birthday comes, log in and post what you are enjoying and maybe we'll check your list and advise what will follow.

Musky after looking through your whiskies, I say you need to have some Glenfarclas 21yo, Rare Malts Brora and Royal Lochnagar Select Reserve.

I looked longingly at the Longmorn and the Brora, ended up cracking open the Glenfarcli' Cask 105. The cork sheared off so I used a wine corkscrew to dig out the rest ...and the cork was so dry it collapsed into dust as I dug it out. Guess I have to finish the bottle quickly as I stuck in a wine cork to hold the oxygen at bay.

Abed by 1230 am; awake at 7:00 am, drinking coffee on the back deck, reading a book on travel in Scotland and watching the world wake up.

Guess I'm too late then, MP. :oops:

Oh well. What the heck. I'll mention what I would have popped anyway.

The Brora sounded tempting at first. But the 1982 isn't the most peat-infused of those RMS releases I've tasted by a long shot. Beautifully intense sweetness, though.

Nope. My eyes immediately spotted the 1990 Bowmore (the OB Sherry matured cask strength edition, right?), which would provide a very nice sequel to Lagavulin. Then the cask strength Connemara, perhaps - a real shot in the chops sort of spirit.

At any rate, best wishes and many, many more! :thumbsup:
