The sample was from 2007 at 40.5%. Might keep the sample bottle as the smell is very addictive, hangs about your nose for ages!

The Talisker was fantastic also!

Nice to finally have some feedback on this particular bottling. Being a big Bow fan, I'm happy and envious at the same time. :mrgreen:

Macallan 21 years old, fine oak
I must say that I like the sherried ones better, even if this had some qualities of it own. (I didn't find it worth its price)

HP12. Usually a reliable dram but I just didn't get on with it at all last night. I don't know what it was playing at :yuk: :(

Not last night but Friday. Weekends are too busy with a young child to spend time online.

SMWS, Queen Street - 78.39. Think this is a "Love it or hate it" dram and I am in the latter camp. So sour it is almost undrinkable at full strength. Water tamed it a bit and brought out some fruit and spice but the balsamic vinegar/soy sauce notes are far too prevalent. BTW how are these notes imparted to a whisky?

Back home went through a few of my SMWS bottlings - 85.19, 76.56, 13 something, and rounded off by the best of the bunch a'Bunadh 22.

I opened a bottle of tequila that we bought in Mexico last year. This one is 100% blue agave. Very smooth. It has that unique agave aftertaste which to me taste like grass. But I do like it. Afterwards, a dram of #21 A'bunadh.

Last Saturday I opened a bottle of tequila that we bought after touring the distillery in Mexico. I dont have the name of the bottle but its 100% blue agave which is suppose to be the best tequila you can have. This one is golden color in a square bottle. The taste is very smooth. I taste a grassy aftertaste which I think is the agave. Its better being sip a little bit at a time.

And followed it with a dram of #21 A'bunadh.

There are lots of 100% agave tequilas in that come in square or rectangular bottles, but this one wasn't El Tesoro by any chance was it? Good tequilas are as good as good whiskies and the best tequilas are equally as great as the best whiskies - yummy!

Glenmorangie 13yo ( 56.9%, SMWS, Cask #125.15, June-1995/June-2008 )

Nose: Lots of wonderful sweet stuff, a whiff of maple syrup, also vanilla, and fresh apple bread.

Palate: Very smooth and sweet, lots of honey and candied fruits.

Finish: Really long and great. Very sweet and lasting, I'm a big one on sweets, so this was like candy in a bottle for me!!

Excellent cask!! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

It was very good, now I understand what Gordon's meant. You can't even compare this to the Glenmo OB's. Excellent! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Great notes, Ryan, thanks! :thumbsup:

As long as it's not sickly sweet or anything, if that makes sense, then I may have to get one of these.
