Nice selection, and obviously good company as well! :thumbsup:

Torres Jaime I Spanish Brandy... Definitely one of the finest spirits to cross my palate in some time.

I think all liquor, whether it is alcohol, bottles of wine, or liquor, is known to help reduce heart disease. According to a 2008 article in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, moderate consumption of liquor makes blood vessels less sticky, and so it is less likely to clot. Alcohol can also increase good cholesterol and reduced the bad, as well as reduced your hypertension. A Harvard study of 70,000 women found that those who absorbed alcohol had a reduced hypertension than those who absorbed bottles of wine or hard liquor.You can check any custom essay writing service to know more about this type topics

Started with a little Abelour before moving to Islay: Bowmore Legend, Ardbeg 10 and the Laphroaig triple wood. Good as the Laphroaig was I'd almost say the Ardbeg was better.

Highland Park 12 Year Old Saint Magnus (55%ABV) topped up with a drop or two of pure Highland water from St. Colman's Well in Ross-Shire... A big Sherry presence in this whisky.

Maker's Mark... Better at the halfway point of the bottle than right off the top.

I'd mentioned in another thread that I'd been to a tasting (which was a fund raiser for Parkinsons' Disease). For a donation of $100.00 you got a number (18) of drams, some lunch and lots of socialisation over said drams.
The tasting involved;
Breize from Breton, France, blah. Sadly I own one.
Bains , South Africa, tasted like a decent bourbon to me.
Macmyra 08, Sweden, indifferent dram ... okay I called it "something unpleasant" in public, out loud.
Rittenhouse, USA - couldn't drink it, dumped it in the spittoon.
Elijah Craig USA - another one I couldn't get past my nose, ended up in spittoon too.
Crown Royal Northern Harvest - over rated not great not one of the Worlds' best by any stretch. I own two. (sigh!)
Forty Creek Canada, not bad at all, better than the Crown Royal NH albeit with a short finish, typical enjoyable Canadian rye
Bushmills Ireland, a decent dram to enjoy, but not spectacular. For that I'd go with a Powers.
Redbreast Ireland, which earned my most damning comment "indifferent at best"
Tyrconnel Ireland, an enjoyable dram which I am glad I own.
Glenfarclas 15, a nice SM medium finish which is also owned.
Glenfarclas 17, another winner medium finish, got one.
Balvenie Caribbean Cask, all good, nice medium finish, got one.
Kilchoman Machir Bay, probably the best of the evening. For my money you can't go wrong with a Kilchoman. Wish I owned one.
Laphroaig 17, another winner for me which I had just purchased the day before.
Hazel burn 12, not bad at all, another got one.
Longrow 12, again a very decent dram, again owned.
Springbank 18, was my second favourite dram of the evening. Sadly don't own yet...

There were too many drams from "away" for my liking and some that should never see the light of day in my honest opinion. I would have preferred less. Don't get me wrong, I have tried American Bourbon, Macmyra whisky and some exceptional Irish whisky, so I don't dislike them. I merely feel that there was too much spread in the whiskies offered and that it should have tightened up to fewer whiskies from only a couple of countries. I will probably just make a donation next year.
