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.
