I had a Grand Cru from BJs. Very nice Belgian-style.

Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve... A pleasant enough whisky that, unfortunately, simply isn't terribly exciting. Certainly not a patch on the previous 18-year old Gold Label, which let more of those wonderfully complex Clynelish traits come through on the palate.

Auchentoshan 1998 Fino Sherry Cask... As it poured (no water added). A bright, lively and very nicely balanced expression of this distillery's make.

Aye, first time I had JW Gold was around 1997. It was very good then.

After attending a Balvenie tasting last night(12 DW, 14 CC, 17 DW, 21 PW), I run into a friend and shes down to go have whisky, so i take her to one of Chicago's best places to get whisky, The twisted spoke. half off on wednesdays!

I tried the Amrut Intermediate Sherry, and I was pleasantly surprised with how much flavor it was packed with. First experience with an Indian whiskey!

Quite different to my first experience of Indian whisky, which was more like a cross between mouthwash and petrol, it was in India and i forget the name, Red 'something'. Anyway, you will find the Amrut a consistent and well made malt whisky. They make it to similar guidelines as Scotch -- which is rare in India where one can make whisky from molasses or whatever one may find.

There may be more on the way but Amrut and Paul John are the two Indian distilleries making proper and correct whisky. Both very good indeed.

Indeed. I have a bottle of Officer's Choice Indian whisky which is the 3rd biggest selling whisky in the world. It's definitely rum.
