Glenglassaugh "The Chosen Few", their first cask of the new range, this one chosen by Ronnie Routledge.

Superb dram, lots of sweet tropical fruits and the most beautifully clean Oloroso.

I was seriously impressed.

My first taste of WhistlePig Rye. Generally favorable, but turns out my nose wasn't in full attendance so a proper evaluation will have to wait.

1972 Rare Malts Selection Mortlach 22 Year Old with two 'splashes' of water... A noteworthy version of this very fine Highlander that amply rewards one's full attention.

After a 2+ year from drinking whiskey/whisky I bought my first bottle of scotch to start drinking it again and had - Johnnie Walker Black and had a small dram of that.
Waiting for my 2011 Whisky Bible to get to me before I visit the good store to buy
Highland Park or a Speyside.

Of course they are your new friends if you are sharing your Livet 12 with them.

Better to make friends than enemies. :P

Had a ½ and ½ of Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival and Laphroaig Quarter Cask last night that was a pretty nice melding of vanilla ex-Bourbon oak, fruity ex-Sherry oak and, of course, that inimitable Islay smokiness. Certainly took any chill out of the air.

Sounds like the chore of a miner grumpy. I do like the delicate nature of the Glenmo 18.

Maker's 46... A finely 'constructed' Bourbon that ably manages to bring a certain 'heftiness' and delicate delineation of flavour components together.
