Caol Ila 18
Balvenie Doublewood 17
Ileach Cask Strength
Laddie Ten
Bowmore Handfilled, 16 years in a sherry butt
and..... the sherried Laphroaig 'Triplewood'

The Ileach Cask Strength is a very heavy dram, I'd imagine this will be too pungent for a lot of folk

So not whisky but a tequila liquer. Forget the name but it is an off the beaten path that someone brought back from Mexico for me.

Thanks. :D It's been building up in the shop for a while, because I haven't been getting in as often as I'd like. I shouldn't really be buying more whisky, but these were too good to miss. I'm mightily jealous of all the Yamazaki you've been buying. I really should get more Japanese stock. The only thing I bought this year was a Hakushu 18yo and my brother-in-law gave me a 15yo Suntory Royal which was delicious.

bredman wrote:I'd jump through flaming hoops for that Convalmore. 8)

You've tried it then :D . Luckily it is my reserve second bottle as the first is nearly finished. I think I'll keep that one for a while. The sad news is that I think that is the last of the Cadenhead's 1977 Convalmore as I heard that Mark Watt vatted the last of the casks for this bottling. I hope that's wrong, but suspect it is true. Did you ever try the 30yo they did a few years ago? It was incredible too.

It is my understanding that Lismore is manufactured for the southwest US. The NAS was reportedly Glenrothes back 10 to 15 years ago. About 5 years ago, I was told by someone "in the know" that it was Glenfarclas. I will vouch that it drastically changed from a leathery whisky to a more under ripe orange at least in the NAS. The 18 seems to be in the vain of the NAS but more mature.

Sounds plausible enough. There's certainly plenty 'farclas washing around. I like the sound of the 18.

I haven't tried this one Willie, but i have some of the past Cadenhead's bottlings of Convalmore -- and others. I am a fan of the (lost) distillery.

Everyone loves a good mess.... :mrgreen:

So at the local store had a whisky with a 93 pt rating from Wine Enthusiast (not sure why they are rating whisky). So for $18 I had to get it as I wanted to know what they thought 93 pts is. Look for a review or at least drunk ramblings later this week.

Just brought a Glenmorangie tasting set, with the original, Quinta Ruban, La Santa, and Nectar D'Or. Enjoyed the port finished Balvenie 21y, so I've been keen to try out some of ones making use of various finishes. And if i like any of these, a full bottle wont set me back nearly as much.

Does someone still have the ADR vatting in stock?

I thought the Burnside was really good once it opened up. Lot's of coffee, dark fruit, chocolate and cinnamon.
