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.

Two or three drams of the New Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Tasted much better than last bottle I tasted.

Splended Stuff in my opinion the best Islay together With Ardbeg 10.

Laph 18 YO. knocked my socks off. toned down on the medicinal taste of the QC and i like it - no i love it.

for me its currently between the Laga 16 and Laph 18 though I do like the difference of HP 18 & 12 as well as the GF 15 YO distillery edition.

Shared several Santa Cruz brews - stout, IPA and DIP plus the Afflingem Noel. The Noel was the nicest of the group.
