Clynelish 14 OB. Went the way of so many before it. It gave itself up for a noble cause.

But you have the CN Tower!

I'll bet Gordon would like it in his back yard, too.

Frodo , I would be over the moon if that view was in my Back yard / Front Yard / Side Yard / Any Yard but i only had a "Lend" of it for a week .
I wonder how the local farmer would go with an expanse of sea and a few islands in his field opposite us.......

They still had some in the Old Kiln shop a couple of weeks ago! I think The Whisky Exchange still has a lot too, not sure where else.

Havana Club Barrel Select. REALLY good value at $35 US/litre at Cuban duty-free. Excellent forward tasting, with very little hotness.

Lagavulin 16. I'd forgotten how much I used to love this whisky.

then along came Ardbeg and that took over for a few years, and i almost forgot about Lagavulin. but tonight, as the bottle got low, i relised why they call it the "aristocrat of islays."

among the smoke and peat of our favourite "monsters", I believe none have quite the elegance of ....Lagavulin 16!

An 'ace' as Richard joynson would say.

Maybe even an ace among aces...

Finished the Ardbeg Almost There tonight -- Ardbeg did a terrific job with this one! Have one left in reserve but I think I will have to go out and get another before they are all gone. Already the Still Young is no longer available around these parts as the city's supply seemed to last only a couple of months.

Bladnoch 15 John McDougall Selection. Bottle number 145 of 198 from cask 3312.

This is one of the best whiskies I've purchased to date and it was actually the first independent bottling that I liked enough to grab a second bottle. So I'm looking forward to cracking open bottle number 121 of 290 from cask 2639. Won't be for some time though. Lot's of other stuff to get through.

I haven't really seen the last of cask 3312 as I set aside 2 50 ml samples: one for whenever I'm in the mood for it and one to drink alongside a dram from the other bottle. Also did a little expirimental vatting with a Scott's selection Bladnoch. Just because I like the nose on the JM better and the finish on the Scott's better. With their powers combined...!!!

Sad night. Sad, sad night. I've just started drinking the last (rather large, maybe too large) dram of Uigeadail from a bottle I purchased back in May.

What's there to say about the Ardbeg Uigeadail? This is probably the best whisky I've ever purchased. I remember my first sniff. The first word that popped into my head was "meaty". Ribs on the BBQ. This is everything I love about whisky packed into one smooth golden dram.

That's two of my favorites gone this week.

As stated in a neighbouring post, I have finished my bottle of Elijah Craig. Can't get another until I cross into the U.S. again next month. Also finished off the Gibson's 18yo but I can pick up another today.

Last of a Glengarioch 17yr (DTC). Very very good bottle. Have had nothing quite like it. Slim chance of a replacement...

Two weeks ago, I finished the Ardbeg Uigeadail but last night I opened a new bottle. I still have another spare bottle somewhere so I am fine for now.

Knocking off the last dram of my liter of Laphroaig CS...spent 11 months on that bottle. Oof what a beauty. Held up very well all things considered. Too bad I've already opened it's replacement (Spring 05 GTS) so I've got nothing new to look forward to in the near future...maybe I'll open that Forty Creek 3 grain soon...

Yoichi 12yo, sadly gone now from both my shelf and the LCBO's. Perhaps they'll order another shipment for the fall. Now only the 10yo is about to enjoy for the last three days of Autumn Grand Sumo.

Glenlivet Nadurra 48% -- a litre of liquid lemon merinque pie lost forever...doesn't seem to be available right now in duty free, its previous stomping ground, so "bye bye ms american Pie"(well , not exactly, but hey, what's wrong with a little poetic license whilst searching for a song with which to mourn the passing of a great, and different, whisky?)

4/5ths of my way through an OMC Tomintoul 1966 which is just amazingly smooth!!!

I would definately be trying to get a replacement bottle of this, particularly as the official bottlings all seem to be a touch bitter, perhaps from the addition of caramel colour.

Lagavulin 21...

Only kidding!

I WISH........

P.S. Spirit Of Islay, sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved glenmo, but the new Lasanta is delightful. I bought one for our Best Man last month, having never tried it(that's a first for me!)so he invited me over last Saturday for a taste.Cpuld this be the best glenmo i've tasted - and i've enjoyed a few? all the glenmo delicacy you could wish for, but with added layers, and a delightful long finish.46% UCF, and I can't wait to get a bottle.

Meanwhoile, tonoit oi be drinkin' mainly Arrrdbeg!

...and I got PLENTY left.

Sorry folks! this is the 2nd thread where a message of mine has appeared twice! Excuse me. Maybe there's a "delete" button I haven't noticed in my drunken stupor...

Meanwhile folks, I've sussed the problem, and wish to say," beware the double click on "submit!"

Once is enough.

Unless it's an Ardbeg...
