And ClubSmed is that Dalmore still available sounds like something I might want to try??



Out of stock at the moment but looks like it will be available.

It is still available though


Thank you for the advice C57, from what I have seen you know what you are talking about. At that price point and not getting rave reviews I am going to have to pass on getting a bottle and it isn't available in the states anyways. If i am ever abroad I will try get a taste of it. Nice bottle by the way.

Thank you Les for the info.

What's your thoughts on Linkwood Gov? There's an indy 10 that i've been eying for a while. What in general impresses you about this distilleries whisky?

The deft balance. Almost every edition I've tasted has displayed an elusive smokiness, floral, fruity and mealy elements, and a delicate sweetness reminiscent, both taste-wise and texturally, of honeycomb.

Like Highland Park, different issues may have emphasized one characteristic or another. But they've all been satisfying pours.

Gordon & Macphail's 15YO even had a tinge of maple syrup in its makeup.
