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.

Only one dram last night but it was exceptional. The Ileach 'Cask Strength' (58%). Don't really know from what distillery this be. At times it seemed similar to the Lagavulin 12y, other times to a Caol Ila CS, and even some moments like a Bowmore. A bottle is definitely going on the short list.

A night in Leith started at The Waterline with a Buffalo Trace and some food as we caught up with my old Friend Stuart Thomson . Afterwards we said farewell and we headed up to The Vaults to Meet up with Willie and his wife Audrey and we even had a few drams......

Before Willie.....
66.28 , a really bad Ardmore from a sherry cask , some masochist on the Tasting panel must be right into Sulphur !
53.127 , another cracking Society Caol Ila , what more can i say !
105.2 , A really old Tormore Bottling , really nice , just where did they get this 1996 bottling from ?
77.16 , A Decent enough Glen Ord .

With Willie....
52.18
63.22
36.39 , A Benrinnes , Sulphur Boy Strikes again !!!!
1.143 , another good Society Glenfarclas
50.38

So apart from 3 badly sulphured whiskies a really good weekend in Edinburgh with some really nice drams and some good Craic with old Friends !

Tasting notes will follow on my main Site
Ended up buying 7.51 , 52.18 , 63.22 .

How I miss the Vaults and all the friends that gather there....sigh. Last night I had a dram of Isle of Arran 250th Robert Burns (6000 bottles) which is a real cracker and thi was followed by a Dewar Rattray 17yo Bowmore which is really good (a cask bottled for a group in Vancouver).

I had lastnight:

Stellar whisky I am told. This is one of the bottles on my dream list.

A couple more drams of the beautiful Laga 16 for me.

Bowmore 12. Love the fact this one polarises opinions so much.

Personally, it hasn't failed in any way from the first dram.

Bunnahabhain 11 DL OMC, Citrus, Salt, hint of smoke, Dough and Biscuits

Hirsch 1974 16year old, just perfection

and a small dram of DL McG Prov Bowmore. Spring 1991. Ash,Smoke, Salt, Maritime influences, a bit of black coffee/dark chocolate on the finish and no apparent purfume. I thought it was a really solid Islay.

Was working last night, so had to limit myself to cordials of various kinds and something resembling coffee.

Haha - "almost but not quite entirely unlike" coffee?


Aye, that's the one. We have a Kenco instant coffee machine in the staff canteen whose coffees vary from mildly passable to something that Baldrick would have served in the trenches*. It's a lottery.

Also had a lemon and ginger tea the other night. That was dire.

Hello all:

Haven't posted in about a week. My, how time flies by so fast!
Last Thursday, the 5th, during our PLOWED chat, I drammed four different bottles of vatted malts (I still prefer that term over blended) by Whitfield's which I purchased in the late '90's: (In order and increasing order of preference, too) Lowland, Highland, Campbeltown, and Islay - all at 40% ABV. This second bottle of Islay malt had not gone off like the one I finished off a week or two ago. It was quite intriguing with an Ardbeg-y tar and creosote character in the fore with the Bunny notes I perceived from the other bottle quite tamped down in this bottle. Very tasty indeed! Finished with some TWE EOI Lp1, CI1, and Ar1. These bottles are coming around very nicely...

Slainte!

Friday night, the 6th, was a mellow night. Drammed only some TWE EOI Ar1 and TWE SMOS Ardbeg 8 yr. Saturday, the 7th, was a dry night for me.

Slainte!

Hello all:

Sunday, the 8th, drammed a bit at home: Bow Legend, Bow 25 yr (OB), and some 40% Finlaggen NAS. I've been patient with the Bow 25, but it has a sulphury component that has not attenuated yet. One can only hope!

:headbang:

Slainte!
