First taste of Cutty Sark NAS. Turned out I wasn't really in the dramming mood though, so I'll have to give it another first impression later.

Auchentoshan 1998 Cask Strength (Fino Sherry)... I'm liking the contents of this bottle!

Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival... Another good whisky, this one. No off notes and a nice balance between the Sherry cask influence and the malt.

Ardbeg 1990 Taste Still, Robert Alonzi label. Pretty powerfull stuff. I almost had to drown this one in water, but once I did it was really good.

I had some Tomintoul and Benriach minis and was pretty disappointed to be honest. Tomintoul 10 and 16 are not good imo far too much caramel, barley and toffee. The 33 is much better with a nice orange subtlety to it.
The Benriachs I tried were the 12, 16, Curiositas and Authenticas. Again, none were outstanding, but the Curiositas was the best of them. The 12 I would avoid.
Not a great night.

Islay Mist 12 Year Old... I've really enjoyed my encounters with the 17-year old, and this younger version is rapidly gaining a similar favoured place in my repertoire. While it's not as deeply toned and serene as its older sibling, the 12-year old adds a bit of spark to the proceedings that is mightily pleasurable. Very drinkable blend!

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC8... No off notes here. Just a clean and cleanly matured (all American oak) take on Islay peat smokiness with a savoury salted citrus twist that has one coming back for more. Good as it pours, on a single ice cube or with one or two drops of water added, depending on one's mood at any given time.

Lagavulin Vanilla Sky. The bottle has been opened for several months now and the whisky has become much much better. I really like this one. After the Laga I had a small dram of Clynelish 1982 MoS Cask 5895.

What do you think of that Auchentoshan? Is it worth seeking out?

I've just about polished off my first bottle, and have two more in reserve. For me, it makes for a very tasty 'summertime' sort of pour. And the asking price is very reasonable given the idiosyncratic nature of the whisky (Fino cask matured... in this case, the cask influence complements the distillate beautifully), plus the fact it's quite simply a cracker of a cask-strength.

Amrut CS 61.9 %. Just got the bottle yesterday and I couldn't wait to try it. Not bad. Not bad at all. Creamy, refreshing, sweet, spicy ... and hot if not diluted.
