Four Roses yellow label. Quite mellow, then a little spice creeps in followed by a lovely oaky finish.

Can't remember. too busy thinking 'bout who'll be my baby tonight.

I reckon it'll be time to start on the backlog of Ardbeg 10...

then tomorrow i can tell you what I had last night (which is still tonight by the way.)

Now where's that Ardbeg?

I had some Ardbeg 10. Yow! What a scotch. I don't have great experience with Islay scotch, so I figured I might as well go big or go home. I think I liked it, but a repeat tasting will be required to see if I could drink it in sufficient quantities to warrant a bottle.

.......I see an Ardbeg addiction coming your way :D

Yesterday I also had a wonderful J.M Rhum Vieux Agricole 1997 Vintage. This is something I can wholeheartedly recommend!

Laddie 11y.o Full strength. I normally drink Highland and Speside Whiskies, but this Islay one is very nice.

Ok, last night's endeavors.

Springbank 21 - go see the notes for the Springbank Live Tasting
Mortlach 21, G&M
Tactical 31, OMC - very interesting Tali. More tarry than usual.
Bruichladdich 19, Park Ave
Brorageddon - extremely sherried, peaty whisky
Glenfarclas 11
Springbank 36, DT - another highlight for the evening. Wonderful balance of flavors and the end of the bottle
Aberlour batch 21
Bowmore 16, 1989 - much improved with aeration
Bowmore 17 (L6) - better but still would rather have other Bowmore
Croftengea
Loch Dhu - Awful. Charred carmel
Tacticl 26, OMC - Another fine example of Tali
Springbank 14, WG
St. Magdalene 19, RM - better with several drops of water
Glen Garioch 8, 1984
Glenturret 16, MMcD
Glenfarclas 12
Knockando 12, 1975
Ellenstown 10
Ellenstown 12
Ardbeg Renaissance
Lochnager 28, OMC
Glen Grant 31, Lonach
Glen Grant 35, Loncach
Vatting of the two Glen Grants - Liked this more than the two individually
Ganga
Matured cask

I had a dram of my new Macallan 12 yo Sherry Oak. Followed by some Laphroaig 10. A pretty good night in my book :thumbsup:

I had Macallan 12 last night and tonight too. Its good, but kinda simple in the sense that the sherry dominates so much. I keep thinking it should be more complex, but then again the kind of complexity i am looking for is only in 18 yr olds and above, so i am probably being a bit too tough on it.

I decided to go with the Glenfiddich 15yo Solera Reserve. What a great whisky. I decided to let it breathe for about 1 hour before I drank it. That definetly enhanced the experience.

The sherry definetly dominates on the Mac 12 but that is what I like about it so much. I am partial to the sherried malts though. I had the Mac 18 Sherry Oak a while back at a restaurant and I liked that even more. That seemed to be a bit more complex. Give that a try. Its a little pricey though....around $150.00 the last I checked.

I paid about $55 for the Mac 12. I would pay more if I had to I guess. It will be a staple in my collection from now on.

Wild Turkey Rare Breed. Big and strong, and the longer I left it the more interesting it became. First time I've tried this and it's very very fabulous :D

I've been told it's a good one. The Boston Lager is available here - have you tried it Swedish Chef?

No Mr.F, I'm afraid I've not tried the lager, but the ale is excellent (I like it better than Spitfire). They have six Samuel Adams Boston Lager left at Åmåls systembolag, if there are any left when I come home from work Saturday I will pick one up and let you know what I think about it.

I had a Sam Adams Winter Lager with dinner which was pizza and chicken wings while watching the Buffalo Sabres game. They won, :D so I decided to have some Mac 12 followed by Lap 10.
