Well, my wife went clothes shopping with a bunch of gift cards from X-Mas and spent about $65-70 (US) over the gift cards and declared the extra $ spent as her Valentine's Day Gift. Now I get to spend $65-70 on me
. My brother and I have built a very decent whiskey collection. We've got many
Scotches (SMs & blends) from every region, some Irish Whiskeies (Jameson 12, Bushmills Black Bush, Bushmills SM 21 Year..unopened) and Bourbons (WT Kentucky Spirit, Booker's, Buffalo Trace, Evan Williams SB 1996, Elijah Craig 12). So, this is tough.
I've got a Balvenie 21 year portwood that I like, so I'm considering Glenmorangie's new port finish Quinta Rubin
. I like my GlenMo 10, and I might enjoy this port. Or the Cragganmore's Distiller Edition which is port finished. We've already got enough sherried scotches.
I have the Lagavulin 16 (which is wonderful, smokey, very complex Islay) and the Laphroig 10. The Laphroig ten is one of my favorite whiskies. I'm considering the Ardbeg 10, but I'm wondering if this is just more of the same from the other two Islays. I've tried a few Bowmores and Buchladiach (spelling), and I'm not a fan. What about a Connemara, the peated Irish Whiskey?
Maybe, something unique. I tried the Macallan Fine Oak 10 the other week, and I liked it (sorry folks
) maybe I should try the 15 or 17 FO that have great reps.
Maybe it's time for another Bourbon, a Old Forester's Birthday or Woodford Reserve.
