Last week I had the pleasure of taking a vacation with my family in Florida. The weather was great (compared to Maine that is) and we all had a great time. I even sought out a well stocked liquor store and found a few nice treats for us to enjoy while we were there. I didn't buy anything to take home (as the prices in FL are a bit expensive), but we had a great time with some very nice whiskies. My Father, Brother and I went through the following:
Crown Royal - This was a nice filler and actually went quite well on the rocks with the warm weather. Rather than drinking beer, I thought a nice Canadian whisky would be good.
Glenfarclas 12yo - Great dram, I really like Farclas to begin with, this is a bottle I always seem to have kicking around at home.
Glenfarclas 17yo - WOW is all I have to say. I absolutely loved this, and it's extremely reasonably priced IMO. Much richer, more full bodied, and just tastier than it's younger sibling.
Ardbeg 10 - I had to have an Ardbeg to make it feel a little more 'like home'.
Lagavulin 16 - Great overall dram, plus my Father likes this one too.
It was a great week!
