Like it a lot...

Positives:
1. Higher than standard bottling strength (a major plus)
2. Added textural richness
3. Mid teens degree of maturity (well judged)
4. Enhancement of caramel-toffee (naturally wood extracted) overtones

Only possible downside:
1. Perhaps a slightly lower degree of overall complexity compared to its 15YO and 18YO stablemates, which really doesn't bother me too much given the positives

Last night...

Balvenie 14YO Caribbean Cask (honey and spice dessert whisky par excellence)
Isle of Jura 16 Year Old (satiny smooth and a little to the sweet side for an island malt)
Ledaig 10 Year Old (a lemon-saturated salt'n'smoke whisky that's superbly appetizing

How is batch 27? Never got a chance to get that one.

Mmm, that Bow 21 was good.

Went to the Hollywood Bowl last night. They allow us to bring in wine and beer. :thumbsup: So I did.... :iwbrnt:

Allagash Double
Fess Parker Pinot Noir 2002
Souveraign Chardonay 2011
Syrah 2009 (forget the winery but it started with Til)

All the wines were very good and the Allagash was off the hook good.

Started off a tad sharp, but has steadily improved as the contents of the bottle have been depleted.

For me last night... Ledaig 10 Year Old pre-dinner, then George T. Stagg (2003 release) and Booker's following the meal.

Pretty new to the world of single malts, but falling in love head over heels and quicker than you can say bunnahabhain!

Last night it was Highland Park 12 y/o again- this is the whisky that started it all for me...toffee-kissed lips, vanilla-fruit-and-spice covered tongue and a lovely, lovely light smokey aftertaste as it warms my throat.

Anyone here tried the 2001 vintage HP? How does it compare to the 12 y/o?

Cheers,

jP

Macallan Amber last night. I purchased this bottle out of pure curiosity, and have found the contents beautifully balanced if decidedly lacking in the 'substance factor' I would expect from a Sherry-casked Macallan. Given that this one goes for approximately the same asking price as the discontinued 12-year old, I'm underwhelmed.
