Well, here's an update on what was eventually ordered
*Fortunately* just prior to ordering, I opened up my bottle of Aberlour A'bunadh, this one being batch 28. As we all know,a real sherry monster, bottled at cask strength . I was astounded to find that I did not like..not like it at all. I found the after taste, sticky and cloying, far too sweet for me. Much too much sherry.
So, it seems that sherried malts (DE's etc) are one thing to me..but the real heavily sherried whiskies are not for my palate. Very much surprised me..as said.
So this little revelation led me to alter my order..Glendronach 15 revival seemed a bad idea after all. If I ever get chance to take a dram in a bar I will...but if its as sherried as seems then I'm perhaps as well steering clear of buying bottles of it.
Anyhow..here's what was ordered ..(and received)
Ardmore Trad cask (have one open so need stock)
Laphroaig 10 Cask strength
Talisker 18 (the one I have nearly empty)
Talisker 57 North. (Not had this before..reckon I'm in for a treat.)
Bailie Nicol Jarvie
Ben Nevis 10
Nikka from the Barrel
Lastly, a 3 20cl bottle pack, Comprising Longrow CV, Springbank CV and Hazelburn CV. I love these 20cl bottle packs, a real fun way to try different whiskies.
Well, that will be my ordering done for a while...I'm almost willing the cold weather to arrive..so I can raid my stash
