My last single malt was...

Postby Rudolph Hucker » Mon Nov 18, 2002 10:45 am

OK folks, it's Monday. Long, long way to go to the weekend, so let's brighten things up a little by finding out what we have been drinking. All you do is post the last single malt you had and when - simple huh?

Me? I had an Aberlour 10 yo as a Sunday nightcap.

What about you?

Cheers

I had a Lagavulun in a nearby pub (in Dublin) last week. I had not had one in a long time and wondered had my taste changed since. I can still taste it and all my ailments have been cured. Not my favourate by a long stretch, but very interesting and enjoyable.

I had an Aberlour 11 Aberdeen.

After some work at 2 at night.

I´m still not shure if I like it. Not a lot of priate bottlings around of Aberlour and maybe they sold this cask off because it´s not as good as the "normal" cask?

I will have an Aberlour 12 DoubleCask tonight

Hi there,

My digestive dram was a Glenturret 80/97 from the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Still a beautiful Whisky although the bottle is opened for a long time. Before that my aperitif was a crazy good TEN of Ardbeg. My God, long live Scotland with such an array of fine Whiskies!! What would we drink if Whisky didn't exist?

Slainte mhor,
Juerg

I had a shot of The Dalmore 12yo last (Sunday) night after my son went to bed, to relax.

Either Auchentoshan Three Wood (11Y), Imperial Calvados Finish (12Y), Macallan (12Y) or a Craggenmore(12Y)... can't remember anymore...it was a very "communicative" evening. Image

Jenny

PS : Isn't Auchentoshan Three Wood the woodiest whisky ever? It's a liquid forrest!

On Sunday night I made 2 vattings with The Balvenie DoubleWood as the base (50-66%b.v.).

Version 1 -- with Springbank 'new' 10yo OB
Version 2 -- with 24yo Macallan OMC

Both were very, very tasty!

Hi
Just sitting after a hard day with the most beautiful little lady, no not the wife she's in bed I am sitting with a glass of G&Ms bottling of cask strength Mortlach, just bottled in June this year 63.8% of beauty. It is rich in colour, deep in taste with strong sherry overtures and a little spice at the end.

Hi
just left this site and decided it was a real hard day, so I am now sitting with a lovely aberlour abunagh, a range of 10 - 15 year old Aberlours matured in dry sherry casks and then mixed together in sweet Spanish sherry casks and bottled at cask strength. The taste is so good and rich you want to chew it, then the world of whisky explodes as the fats, proteins and resins from the wooden casks solidify in your mouth WOW! I will sleep well tonight.
Slainthe John.

John, that sounds terrific, that's an Aberlour I must try!

Last night's nightcap? A Glenfarcas 15 yo.

As Homer Simpson would say < Mmmmmmmmmmmmm! >

cheers

Opened my bottle Port Ellen 21yr from Old Malt Cask and enjoyed a generous dram with a dear friend.

Last night I had a dram of Auchroisk 11yo port finished 43% (Chieftains) which I usually find to be excellent but last night it was just OK for some reason. Wonder what I'll have tonight?...

Last Friday, I had an after work glass of Macallan 15 in a quiet bar with a red pool table and fancy furniture uptown New Orleans. A great rolling malt! (PS: everyone else was drinking light beer).

I would love to have a Mac 15 in New Orleans!!!!!

Due to the weather here (don't ask...it's Islay weather) I didn't have the Aberlour 12 as I said, but took the Connemara NAS Cask Strength, suddenly it wasn't cold anymore!

Last night (Friday) I was having Irish Pure Pot still-- Redbreast followed by Jameson 15yo. The Jameson 15 is worth every penny, it is a LE, get it before it's gone.

At this moment I'm drinking Lagavulin (propted by some other threads).

I will have to try the Cask Strength Connemara. I read that it's not chill filtered.

Right now I am sitting in my flat in New Orleans, sweating and sipping a Gran Reserva 1979. (There never seemed to be a grand enough occasion for a sip, so I decided to drink the stuff as often as possible!).
I am also smoking a marvelous Lusitania (Double Corona) from the Island the US authorities love to hate!
It doesn't take much to feel like a rebel her in the US.
Cheers!

After a hard work at the festival in The Hague last weekend, it was nice to sit down and relax with some left overs from the company. By accident, it was The Macallan, Gran Reserva 1979, and sliped down the throat like a mouth ful of fruityness......

Last night I had a Springbank 10yo. Not bad but not great for the price. Should have got a Talisker 10yo instead... similar style but much better IMO and for less money too.
