New whisky in Musky's lair. A Penderyn Portwood finish - as yet untasted; and a gift from a buddy as well - a 15 yo Glenfiddich. The DE.

That one I tasted immediately. A lovely dram, honeyed, floral nose, a spicy taste and finish. Long legs like a Vegas showgirl. It reminds me of the CS Glenfiddich I had on New Years Eve in about 2000. I went back for more. of said 15.

Musky

(Still gotta try that A'Bunadh I found earlier in the year, Ritch.)

Aye, that you do.

Picked up a 200 ml of Early Times. Lost of the Big Island taking care of a kid while everyone else goes out for a terrific dinner.

Nice haul. That Dalmore 12 is very good. Lots of anise. I was able to snag 3 about 7 years ago. What is the Signatory bottle?

Glenmo Original 1.75. What can I say, it was under $60 and it included samples of the Lasanta, Nectar D'or and Quinta Ruben.

A wee gift from my lovely wife on her return from The Big Easy. Yes it's open and is wonderful. Has the Talisker nose but the Palate and Finish are hot, sweet and spicy with even the lips tingling with the heat.
A wonderful dram.

Just took the plunge and bought some very rare Japanese Whisky.

I just love the label designs on them. Don't know if I will ever drink them, but
you never know.

Hanyu The Joker monochrome bottle.

Hanyu Ace of Spades (the original release of 122 bottled in 2005)

Yamazaki 25yrs old bottled 1998

Yamazaki 1998 bottled 2009.

Anyone tasted any.. very little on the internet about them.

My suggestion to you is to look up Dramtastic (sometimes poster here) who does a Japanese whisky review. He is very much up on the Japanese whisky scene and has been for at least the last 10 years.
