Of course something special for xmas :D
A Port Ellen 8th Release. It's a good PE but a little shy if you ask me.
Oh yes, after that I had a bottle of Bordeaux with my girlfriend.

Appleton Estate Extra (12yo) - fantastic as always. So glad this became available in Tralfamadore.I thought I would never taste it again after I finished my bottle from Prague. Big thanks to Whiskyviking who told me about it.

I used to like Rum years ago, but can't find one I can settle on anymore. I can get the Appleton Estate Extra very reasonable and wondered how it compared to say a Ron Matusalem Grand Reserve? That's the only one I've had fairly recently, I still keep it around, but it's not something i enjoy sipping on, I'm kind of saving it for mixers.

Jimmi, I'm afraid I haven't tried the Ron Matusalem Gran Reserva - it's one I'm definately going to taste someday though as I've heard it's a splendid rum. I think it's a cuban style rum although it's not made there anymore and they apply some sort of solera system I think?
I think one can expect the Appleton Estate to pack a punch compared to the lighter cuban style.
Dave Broom calls it the Islay drinkers rum. A love it or hate it rum. I love it!

I enjoyed a few nice drams last night. :D

Auchentoshan Select This is a very nice malt, plus it can be had for only $23, how can you go wrong!

Longmorn 16 I'd have to say I'm not overly impressed by this one. It's just OK IMO. I'd much prefer the 15yo, especially for the price! It seems they spent more on the packaging here than anything else!

Glenmorangie 13yo SMWS 125.15 I like this stuff, much much better than the OB bottlings for me.

Bruichladdich 15yo 2nd Ed. I've tried this before, but only had sample. This is a newly opened bottle and I really like it. This is the sauterness finish, and it goes really well.

Glenfiddich 21yo Nice dram, sweet and smooth, a good Fiddich.

Ardbeg 10yo I almost always finish the night with Ardbeg, why not!

I bought a bottle of Glenmorangie Lasanta and The Balvenie 12yo DoubleWood. I have no restraint so I had to try them both.

I can't say anything about The Balvenie DW that hasn't been said. That is a great whisky.

The Lasanta a bit different as you all may know. I liked the sherry influence. Nice long finish. I enjoyed the experience. Looking forward to trying their Quinta Ruban.


Cheers,

Mac
