Slainte Mhath, (I'm an "x" Cape Bretoner)

Opened my last bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail. L6 149 15:50 4ML. Guess that's a 2006 bottling.

Had 3 of these at one time. Dayum! This is my favourite single malt.

Chill is in the air the past few days so I'm declaring Summer officially over! lol It's time to sip something fitting for the change in season.

The price of this has gone up quite a lot since I last purchased it. LCBO has it priced at $167.00!!! :shock: There's about 13 bottle left in the province and only a handful in the Toronto area. I'm finding it very difficult to rationalize spending that much for a bottle of whisky although I have spent more for a bottle in the past. Guess if this is my favourite there's no rationalizing! Will just have to suck it up...to have no more Uigeadail when I could have restocked...don't want to think about it. ;)

On my third and last dram at the moment. What a wonderful malt! What can I say that hasn't been said. Well then...am enjoying this to the hilt!

Cheers all!

Ed -- and that racing stripe ^^ is why I cellar almost all my reds (at least a month or so) and decant them. I want the wine not the sediment (not as yummy).
