BenRiach 21: Malty sweet, then peat and ash, and prickly spice. And a finish that goes on and on. Loved it.

Silk in a glass. Haven't as yet written out detailed notes, despite the fact it's not a new bottle. :oops:

The Vaults Last night.....
50.38 - Probably the best Society Bladdy i've had.....
63.22 - Stunning Glentauchers , one purchased !
27.73 - Run of the mill Springer
4.131 - Very nice HP
10.66 - Another peated Bunnie , nearly purchased one.....
78.38 - Bloody awful BN from a Gorda cask , had it disposed of.....
Mystery Dram......
52.18 - My first Society OP , hellishly drinkable at 66.3% , one in the bag instead of the Bunnie .
G6.1 - Another cracking grain from Port Dundas this time .

Jamesons no age statement - opened over a year. This has gone bad, tasted like vodka with a slight Irish whisky flavouring.

Had another pour of the 12yo Springbank RumWood.

The rum marries nicely with the spirit but think this whisky is best had by itself. HTH against the 16yo version, it shows a certain rawness. Four more years of aging has clearly improved (IMHO) the whisky. YMMV. :)

Interesting, thanks for that, I am impressed with the 16yo.

Had a blind tasting of Laphroig 10, 15 and QC. The QC won by a hair.
Will try it sober next weekend.
Moved on to MacAllan 12yo and then Glenmorangie 15yo.
