Picked up a Bruichladdich 15 this afternoon... but I have a long way to go before I'll get a chance to open it. I figured, since I already have a Bunnahabhain waiting to be opened, I might as well give it a lightly peated Islay companion.
I'll be drawing down open bottles for quite a while yet - still open:
Ardbeg 10 (the ultimate bang-for-the-buck Islay)
Ardbeg 1977 (ONE DRAM ONLY if I pour from this one! It's one to slowly savor...)
Compass Box Eleuthera (outstanding vatted malt)
Compass Box Hedonism (yes, I like grain whisky!)
Compass Box Peat Monster (not quite as complex as Eleuthera, but very good nonetheless)
Domaine "Le Basque" Hors d'Âge Bas-Armagnac (a superb brandy)
Forty Creek Three Grain (incredible bang-for-the-buck, and almost too
Knob Creek 9 (even though it's bourbon, I like it best neat in a Glencairn glass)
Redbreast 12 (pot-still goodness!)
This after killing off several other bottles!
Gotta be more disciplined about popping corks!
Aberlour 10 plain brown tube (classic Speysider, and the first Scotch I ever had)
Aberlour A'Bunadh Batch #7 (have had #9, #10, and #11 - sherry monster extraordinaire!)
4xArdbeg 10 (gee, ya think I like Ardbeg?
Black Bush (smoooooooooth, easy drinking)
Bruichladdich 15 (haven't had it before)
Bunnahabhain 12 (also haven't had it)
Connemara CS (have had the standard NAS version - the "Irish Islay")
Clynelish 14 OB (Eleuthera has Clynelish in it, so I thought I'd give it a go)
Guy Lhéraud VSOP Cognac (hard to find, fairly inexpensive, yummy)
Laphroaig 10 CS (Islay's answer to A'Bunadh
St. George 3 (haven't had it before - I'm getting adventurous)
Talisker 10 (I think it's right good, even if others think it has slipped)
Killed over the last couple of months:
Caol Ila 18 (mmmmmmmmm)
Dalwhinnie 15 (nice and light)
Glendronach 15 (not cask-strength, but still a sherry monster - wow!)
Lagavulin 16 (smoky goodness - I hung on to this bottle a long time before opening it)
Longrow 10 (Campbeltown's answer to Islay)
Springbank 10 (very well-balanced)
Yamazaki 12 (surprisingly good, reasonably priced)
