It's ok. :thumbsup: And I absolutely agree about the Yama '84. Great whisky but not $1000 worth.



I'll qualify my statement. I don't believe any whisky is worth $1000. Sometimes however, that is what we are asked to pay.

True, I'm hardpressed to find something worth that much except as maybe as a once in a lifetime experience.

A large mug of Coffee, along with a Jura Bourbon Cask 1999 55%. A lovely dram. I actually had three drams!

Just a dram of Lagavulin 16yo.

Today at a client lunch, I went to a restaurant which did not have ANY single malts! I had to settle for a Johnny Walker Green Label, which was actually rather smooth.

I chastised the owner, who asked me what he should get to address the dearth of single malt. He has agreed to have an Argbeg Ui on the shelf in future, just for me!! :thumbsup:

Started off last night giving Monkey Shoulder one more chance. Awful. Poured the rest of the bottle down the sink. Revolting. :yuk:

Settled down with a dram of Lagavulin 16yo instead. Much more acceptable.

Maybe some of the Laga 16 poured into the Monkey would have helped it go down. :)

I wonder if it is that particular batch of Monkey Shoulder. I remember the UK folks enjoying the various batches 4 to 6 years ago.
