hey, i just realised my last purchase pushed to over 50 bottles, now to make 100 etc.. etc
I do buy to drink not collect, many are brought to just to try, yet unopened.
Then some are brought for stock because they are favourites or for special occassions.

I,m hunting for more Ardbeg 1977s if anybody has some and they would like to reduce their stock?

Cheers Ardbug

Hi. It's a medeira finish which is the first thing to hit you on the nose and the palate. There's a little bit of creamy toffee and peppermint there but it didn't give me very much else and the finish is disappointingly short. A drop of water doesn't help. Not unlike a young Littlemill (quick, someone pass Mr T the sick bowl...)

It's a young pup yet and I'm unlikely to buy another bottle until it has a few more years to develop some character. Hopefully then they will do a bottling without a finish to allow the distillery character to come through.

Oh no! I found the Penderyn very drinkable. The one Littlemill I've had (admittedly not a fair sample) was a crime against nature.

Yeah, I mean I found the Penderyn very drinkable too, but in the same way I find a 12yo Glenfiddich or 10yo Glenmorangie very drinkable. Inoffensive rather than interesting but I'm not averse to seeing how it develops. Not unpleasant in any way though.

It may be worth you trying the 12yo Littlemill that has just replaced the 8yo (they have released miniatures) I found it very fruity/sweet. Reasonable body for a lowland. My unsophisticated palate usually can't tell a Lowland from a glass of water.

An up to date picture of my collection after a room reshuffle.

All the open bottles are in the bottom left hand corner, except the HP above.

It doesn't look a lot but its fifty bottles, 49 too many if my girlfriend had her way :wink: :lol:

I don't moan about her shoes though! :shock: :D

GREETINGS TO ALL....


I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SHARE MY ANGLE ON THIS SCOTCH THING...
THE WINE & SPIRITS INDUSTRY HAS BEEN VERY KIND TO ME THESE LAST 12 YEARS....
WHEN I STARTED AS A STOCKBOY IN AN UPSCALE WINE SHOP JUST NORTH OF CHAPPAQUA (CLINTONS) AT GREEN LANE WINES & LIQUORS IN BEDFORD HILLS, NEW YORK....

I SPONTANEOUSLY REALIZED AN OPPORTUNITY FOR COUNTLESS CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN AN INDUSTRY AT THE INFANCY OF THE PRETENCIOUS WINE GEEK ERA OF 1994....

I OBSERVED THE SALESPEOPLE CALLING ON THE OWNER EVERY DAY PITCHING WINES THAT CAME WITH KICKBACKS LIKE TV'S, TRIPS TO WINERIES, MONEY AND MORE.... MOST OF THESE SALESPEOPLE LACKED PERSONALITY, CHARACTER OR ORIGINALITY.... THE OWNER WOULD HIDE FROM THESE ANNOYING, RELENTLESS SALESPEOPLE...

I QUICKLY REALIZED THAT THIS WAS MY NEW 5 YEAR PLAN....
BECAUSE MOST OF THESE SALESPEOPLE, WHO ARE CURRENTLY MY COLLEGUES OR COMPETITORS WERE IDIOTS.....

IT WOULD APPEAR THAT AT THAT TIME IN THE INDUSTRY THEY WERE HIRING COLLEGE GRADUATES WHO ARE IN ALL FAIRNESS THE WORST EMPLOYEES. RIGHT OUT OF COLLEGE THEY WOULD GET A JOB BASED ON A PIECE OF PAPER....THEY LACKED ALL THE NECESSARY SKILLS.....
MOST IMPORTANTLY---PEOPLE SKILLS....SOME HAVE IT, SOME LEARN IT
SOME JUST BOUNCE THROUGH THIER CAREERS KNOWN AS AN A-HOLE
OR LOUSY SALES REP...THEY AVOID FAILURE BY JOB JUMPING UNTIL THEY FIGURE OUT THE PEOPLE THING...
I, MYSELF FORTUNATELY EMBARKED UPON THE BANKING INDUSTRY DIRECTLY FROM HIGH SCHOOL WHICH DEFINITELY HELPED DEVELOP MY ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE, SERVICE AND PROBLEM SOLVE WITH TENS OF THOUSANDS OF BANKING CUSTOMERS FOR A PERIOD OF 5 YEARS IN 2 DIFFERENT BANKS THROUGH A DOZEN OR SO BRANCHES...
I WAS A HEAD TELLER/CUSTOMER SERVICE REP AT THE AGE OF 21 YEARS OLD...I WOULD SCHEDULE MYSELF 6 OR 7 DAYS A WEEK AND
EARNED OVER $40,000.....I SAW MY FUTURE WHEN I WOULD LOOK AT MY MANAGER OF WHATEVER BRANCH I RAN AND SAW THE DEAD -END...
TO BE QUITE HONEST I STRESSED SO BAD THAT I WOULD DRINK A 12 PACK OF MOLSON EVERY NIGHT.. THE PEOPLE I WORKED WITH WERE IDIOTS AND THEY NEVER LET ME FIRE THEM...
I QUIT. MOVED TO CARMEL NY WITH A RELATIVE..I STUDIED CHESS/FISHED, WATCHED TV AND COLLECTED UNEMPLOYMENT FOR 2 YEARS...
WHEN I STARTED AT THE WINE SHOP AS A STOCK GUY, I QUICKLY LEARNED ALL POSITIONS, CASHIER, SALES, PURCHASING, UNTIL FINALLY MANAGEMENT...MANY JOB OFFERS CAME MY WAY WHEN I WAS AT MY PRIME AS A WINE GEEK....I HAVE TO SAY.. OF ALL THE JOBS I'VE EVER HAD, SELLING WINE TO REGULAR CUSTOMERS THAT TRUSTED ME WITH MY RECOMMENDATIONS WAS THE ONE JOB I THOUGHT I COULD DO FOREVER...I INFLUENCED THE WAY A WHOLE TOWN APPRECIATED WINES I
SELECTED FROM THOUSANDS OF BOTTLES AT MANY A DRUNKEN TASTING.
PURCHASED FROM DISTRIBUTERS RIGHT TO THE CONSUMER.....
I DEALT WITH STANLEY TUCCI, THE KENNEDYS (CHEAP, CRAZY PAINS IN THE ASS) AND TONS OF OTHER LOYALTY LIKE JOEY RAMONE .
I HAD THEM ALL DRINKING SPANISH WINES WHEN ALL THE CALIFORNIAN WINES GOT HOT AND NEARLY DOUBLED PRICES...
THIER WERE ALOT OF KILLER ITALIAN, CALIFORNIAN VINTAGES BACK THEN AND I STILL HAVE THE SPANISH WINES I COLLECTED......
MOSTLY PESQUERAS..2 CASES OF 94 JANUS, CASTILLO YGAY 82,85,87,ALOT OF THE 1989!!!
THE FUNNY THING IS I DON'T REALLY CARE FOR THEM ANYMORE...
FOR ME IT IS LIKE WORK TO DRINK A BOTTLE...
IT KILLS ME TO SHARE MY TREASURES DURING THE HOLIDAYS WITH PEOPLE WHO THINK CHABLIS IS A GRAPE....
ANYWHOO I TOOK A JOB OFFER FROM ONE OF THE SMALLER COMPANIES THAT SPECIALIZED IN PORTUGUESE WINES...I DEVELOPED EVERY POSSIBLE CONTACT THROUGH RELENTLESS HOURS OF DOING WINE TASTINGS FOR RETAILERS, CHARITABLE EVENTS AND SO ON...
I'M THE GUY THAT USES HIS OWN REAL WINE GLASSES AT THOSE WEEKEND TASTINGS IN SOUTHERN N.Y.
AT A CERTAIN POINT IN MY CAREER I COULD CHOOSE WHAT COMPANY I WOULD LIKE TO WORK FOR....
BUT I GOT INTO A RUT AND ENJOYED BEING THE UNDERDOG....
I KICKED ALL THE BIG GUYS ASSES AND THEY WANTED ME ON THIER SIDE...
I SOLD MY SOUL TO A BIG DISTRIBUTER WITH A NEAR 6 FIGURE 2 YEAR CONTRACT SELLING LIQUOR....I WENT CORPORATE
I NOW PEDDLE 5 NEW VODKAS/OR WHATEVER EVERY MONTH TO YOUR LOCAL WESTCHESTER RESTAURANTS...
IF THERE ARE ANY YOUNG PEOPLE OUT THERE I RECOMMEND THIS CAREER PATH HIGHLY....THE FREE TASTINGS....THE TRIPS TO WINERIES ALL OVER THE WORLD WITH FIRST CLASS ACCOMODATIONS...
BUT THE KNOWLEDGE IS BULLSHIT THERE ARE NO BAD WINES, JUST WINES THAT SOME PEOPLE LIKE AND SOME DON'T....
SELLING WINE BECOMES MOSTLY LIES BECAUSE IT BECOMES IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH EVERY VINTAGE..
YOU RELY ON CHARACTERISTICS AND CONSISTENCIES.....
THE WORST PART ABOUT THE WINE WORLD IS THE PEOPLE WHO GET
ALL SERIOUS WHEN THEY TASTE, SPIT AND MOAN...
EVERYBODY IS PRETENDING TO HAVE A CLUE...
ANYBODY CAN SELL WINE.. IT IS EASY.. YOU JUST HAVE TO DRINK IT ALL THE TIME....NOTES ARE BULLSHIT BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER READ THEM..

I NOW HAVE NO IDEA WHAT MY POINT IS SO I AM GOING TO LET YOU GUYS KNOW ABOUT MY RECENT EXPERIENCE ON E-BAY....

I MADE $1,500. LAST WEEK SELLING LAPHROIG, FERRAND, GLENROTHES,
JIM BEAM AND MORE....
IT IS MORE WORK THAN MY REAL JOB, BUT I LIKE THE CHALLENGE...
IF ANYONE HAS A LAPHROIG 40 YEAR YOU COULD GET $600-700
THERE ARE MANY INTERESTING OPPORTUNITIES TO BE FOUND...
I STARTED OUT SMALL, BUT THEN REALIZED I CAN GET ALL THE RARE STUFF THROUGH MY JOB...SELL FEWER, MORE PRICEY BOTTLES- MAKE MORE MONEY...\
IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED i WILL BE LISTING THE NEWLY RELEASED GLENROTHES SINGLE CASK 1979 #13458
ONLY 519 BOTTLES IN EXISTENCE
THERE ARE ONLY 8 BOTTLES IN ALL OF NEW YORK...
ECONOMICS SAYS I SHOULD ASK FOR $1,200.
BUT WE WILL SEE...
I HAVE TO GO NOW AND SELL, SELL, SELL ON E-BAY

Dear Paraman59

I really enjoyed your note/essay. I found very interesting. Thank you. Only one comment though. Look on your keyboard, but has your keyboard have a button to the left of the letter 'A'.

You might not have it in the USA, but it is a new invention, its called the CAPS LOCK button.

It makes the reading more pleasant to read :wink:

Joking aside, good to have you on board

Why do those who have not been to college feel the need to disparage it? As I read in a literature course many years ago (you know, in College, which somehow transformed me into an incompetent, antisocial buffoon), and yes, I paraphrase (as only a college graduate and loser would do): Me thinks the lady, protesteth too much (I bet I even spelled a word incorrectly, my what a waste of good money my education was).

It's like a musician without chops disparaging chops. Chops don't make you a great musician any more than an education makes you...uh...a great wine salesman, say; but a great musician can certainly make good use of them.

Thanks, Paraman, but no need to shout! (If richard gets hold of that caps lock thing, we're all in trouble.)

Hi Kiltrock,
Seems to me that you like the Islay whisky.
If you are interested in swapping some samples with me, just send me a private message (PM).

Cheers

Hi kiltrock68, Excellent list of Islay whiskies there, I'm jealous of your Laphroaig selection. I also noticed you have 2 Irish in your open list also. I'd be interested what you think of both. The Bushmills really sticks out like a sore thumb. Why is that in your list? as you have a majority of peat malts there. I was not overly impressed with the Bushmills Rum cask myself. How does the connemara stack up against the islay drams in your opinion.

Lastly I noticed a lack of Lagavulin in your list, do you not like it?

Interested to hear your views.

@ irishwhiskeychaser

Hi,

the reason for the 2 irish malts at my collection is simple. The Connemara was a gift for my last years birthday, and the other a gift of my brother who works for an english company and often have to fly to England and as he knows i like whisky, especially with some rum finish, he brougth it to me from the Duty Free at a London Airport.

I like them both for a all day malt, but they cant really mess with the islay malts, as i like the hard peaty stuff more! I just ordered my first bottle of Bruichladdich Port Charlotte 63,5% 5y (PC5) and i hope it will arrive until next week, because next friday we got our monthly private whisky meeting.

But Whisky is not only peat for me. I like to start the evening with some nice sherry or port cask/finish speyside or highland malt, to enhance than to the hard stuff from Islay.

I also like Lagavulin, especially the 16yo distillers edition, but i like Ardbeg, Caol Ila and Laphroaig more, so thats the reason why there is a lack of Lagavulin bottles at my collection. But i got a bottle of the D.E. at my frat, so i can get some all week if i want to!

Cheers from germany

Well keep enjoying all those lovely malts you have there, I'd think most people on this board would be delighted to have a line up like yours.

That's an impressive collection Vitara7 and concentrating on Rare Malts is, I think, a good idea.

My concern about Rare Malts is I don't know the stock levels left. For example, how much more Millburn is out there?

I'm sure it will run out eventually though. Millburn was selling fast at the Glen Ord Whisky Fayre I was at yesterday :)

PORT ELLEN FROM THE ISLAY WHISKEY SHOP BOTTLED BY OMC


Would that happen to be the '82 Port Ellen 21yr old Old Malt Cask The Whisky Shop, Distilled: 1982/Nov. - Bottled: 2004/Sept. Sherry casked?

If so, it's an excellent dram! One of my top 3 tasted this year.
Color: Deep Mahogany on the verge of Ebony
Nose: Chocolate cherries and peaty smoke
Palate: Sweet sherried peat explodes on the tongue. Slightly creamy then drying.
Finish: Peaty, smoky, and chewy. :)


Cheers!

Yes it is, I tried it myself and had to get a bottle while I was on the Island, I wish I would have got 2 now because it was actually a very good price for a PE I'm saving it for a special occation.
