Bought the whisky I intended to buy and just had my first dram of the Lagavulin Distillers Ediition 1994 8)

First impressions from memory ( compared to the 1991 edition ) : this one is darker in colour and the peat takes some time to show itself but comes trough fine after 1 or 2 drops of water.

I was really taken with the Tullibardine 15 yo sauterne finish. I've purchased my third bottle of it this past week and can't find anything I don't like. A nice well rounded dram to finish off the year with.

Not a new whisky but i think my favourite whisky this tear has to be the OMC Highland park 27 year old sherry cask , in my opinion it was a fantastic dram and gets my number one vote.... :D :D :D

I am taking this as the best whiskey discovered by me in this year.The best I have had this year were:

Clynelish 14 - Just love this one. Complex and wonderful on the palette.
Nadurra CS - Another fav. Unfortunately finished mine so soon and am unable to get another one in my region.
Nikka from the barrel - Very very good.
Laph 10 CS - peps me up always.

The above have been consistently liked by me.

I have a PC8 and Yoichi 15 barely tasted and an Oban 14 unopened. Just got Wild Turkey rare breed and a Connemara CS peated, which were given just one try each. I am not considering them for this year's list yet as I need to spend a little more time with them.

Both from Diageo and both tasted during a Masterclass at Milano Whisky Festival:

# GLEN SPEY - 21 anni - Limited Edition 2010 - Distillato 1989 - Imbottigliato 2010 - 50.4%

# BRORA - 24 anni - Rare Malts - Distillato 1977 - Imbottigliato 2001 - 56.1%

Both complex and full of layer of flavors...very yummy :P
