Big Malky came round on Monday. 5 bottles emptied, many bottles severely depleted, 3 bottles opened and many samples drunk.

You can't beat a good night in. :D

Had a Dimple Pinch for the first time last night. Very enjoyable, great texture with nice spice. One of the better scotch blends I've had.

Snow Phx...Well, I have to say that it was better from a bottle that had been open for awhile. This may be something to consider when contemplating a purchase.

Bowmore Mariner, much better than I recall, a really complex and sophisticated dram.

Dallas Dhu, 10 Yr, G&M. Found it in a store in New Jersey, $45. I've only had 20+ year drams of Dallas Dhu, from various independent bottlers, given the distillery was closed 38 years ago. G&M tells me this was exported to the U.S. between 1993-95. Anyway, I bought it and found it incredibly enjoyable. Very balanced on nose, palate and finish, quite malty and finishes quite dry with subtle smoke and sea salt. Very nice dram, and a real bummer they'll never produce again.

Chivas 12YO. What can I tell you? I was attending a wedding reception, and the selection of liquors at the bar was... well... rather limited. Wine was tasty, though.

Arran 1998 Single Bourbon Cask followed by Douglas Laing's Big Peat. I've really enjoyed the Big Peat (and have a spare bottle in the cabinet for that very reason). It's quite amazing how that little bit of extra-matured Port Ellen in the mix helps to smooth out and bring all of the other elements together. Well done!

Crown Royal Special Reserve last night... Just sooooooo smooth. But I still feel it's eclipsed by the less expensive Limited Edition and the more expensive Cask No. 16.

That North British is pretty interesting, Sean. Would never guess the age given its liveliness. Quite grainy-fruity with very faint touches of acetone and burnt matches. I'm certainly going to take my time with this one, as it may well improve now that the bottle's broached.

I did a William Larue Weller head to head (2009 vs. 2010) at a friend's place.
I have to give the win to the 2009. It might have been that the 2010 was a freshly opened bottle while the 2009 had been open for many months.

Like any good science experiment, this should be repeated many times to confirm! :lol:

Last night I had a Glenfiddich 12yo and a small dram of Lagavulin 16yo. And :shock: but I don't really like the Laga 16yo like I used to. I find it much to sweet. Early this year I bought a Lagavulin 'Vanilla Sky' which I like a lot better. I think it's much 'cleaner' than the standard Lagavulin.

I'm not surprised at all. I've been having this conversation with folks for 2 years. The quality has been bouncing around for at least the last 5 years. The L7 bottling is the one we've decided on. A pleasant balance of smoke and sherry. Other bottlings have been kind of ashy. Some have reported overly sweet bottlings as well.

Well, strangely enough I liked the previous Laga 16 which I bought a year or two ago. But this one is really different.
