Rosebank 21 OMC 50%. I will likely shed a tear when this bottle passes away. I would leave my (long suffering) fiance for this elegant beauty, and i've told her so. That's how much I love this whisky.

My first 'go' at Ardmore Traditional Cask... Starts off feeling younger and more 'virile' than its 46%ABV and the quarter cask finishing might have one expect, but quickly settles into stride. Like its fellow Eastern Highlander, Glen Garioch (in its younger guises, at any rate), more overtly malt-driven (think cereal) than fruity, 'chunky' in a textural sense rather than finessed, and with those lovely touches of earthiness just barely tinged with smoke. Solid stuff.

Having some ADR Glen Mhor 27 right now. It is not as fruity as I remember. I think tonight it reminds me of cantelope with some cinnamon and salt sprinkled over it. Or maybe it should be honey dew.

Hi all,
First post on here and looking forward to some interest topics and even learning more about whiskey. I've got a very modest wee collection but mainly enjoy drinking rather than collecting. :)

At the moment I'm drinking Jura Superstition and Glen Orrin from Aldi which is very decent for the money . Might crack open a nice bottle if my team St Mirren win on Sunday. :D

It's something of an oily beast, rough at first pour but after 5mins in the glass transforms into a butterfly. Well butterflies are too delicate so lets go for an attractive sturdy moth :lol: . The metamorphosis really is quite striking. Can't go wrong with these Chivas Cask Strength Edition bottlings.

Just to get Brian off my back. :lol: Opened this little beauty. I've reduced the flare a lot, meaning that's one shit load of light coming through that dark whisky.
