    It's an expertly crafted, smooth single malt from Islay. Very peety as you would expect from Islay but not "medicinely" so as is usually the complaint from something like Laphroaig.
    Just tried the Lag 21. Its discontinued. Very simple and sweet up front with an explosive mid palate and finish. Very spicy. I added a touch of water because it was bottled at cask strength (about 53%), and all the spice and explosiveness gave way to subtle peat, smoked wood, and charcoal. For the price of the Lag 21, I'm going with the Talisker 25 instead; especially since I got a Lag 26 bottled under the label "Classic of Islay" for only $90 (good stuff).

    Something for you scotchers to consider: LA Scotch Club will be having a meeting in Sherman Oaks on 2/27. Cost is only $20-$25 for drinking from 6 different bottles. PM me if you're interested.

    Alcoholics go to meetings. Those who consider it a problem choose AA. Those who don't go to the LA Scotch Club. We'll get you to a meeting sooner or later.

    That 15 is super good and a great value purchase. Echo Stormy's comment: your husband is a lucky man.

    Thanks, it's a good find for sure. I'm definitely up for a scotch meeting some day. When my little one's older and I can leave her with the parents for a day...

    I just got this for the in-laws as a thank you gift:

    ^^^that is an excellent scotch. It was a hit with sister-in-law, her husband and my husband. Very smooth when served neat and can be interchangeable with the glenlivet as far as everyday drinking (night cap!) goes. I like to save the bolder ones such as talisker for occasions.

    Has anyone tried Sheep Dip Scotch from Bevmo? Don't know too much about it, but it was reasonably priced and it rocked!

    Hey people,

    I've got a friend that came into a large lot of single malts, bourbons, and ryes (there are also a few other things, but limited) that he is looking to sell. Included is a healthy amount of Lag 16's, a few Highland Parks, Glenmorangie Nectar d'Or, Serendipity, lots of different Ardbegs, Bowmores, Caol Ilas, and Macallans (original bottlings and independent bottlers). The prices are darn good; much less than what you would pay at any store.

    PM if you are interested.

    there's a scotch hunter app for the iPhone that I just discovered yesterday. it has ratings, descriptions, a favorites function for yourself and some kind of slot machine game. their website that mr. I linked to back in the day has proven to be invaluable.

    I found the app yesterday while trying to use the site as a reference for choosing a new bottle as a gift for the in-laws again. I decided upon this:


    will report on my opinion when we return from our visit to their place.
    I've tried the balvenie sherry oak, thanks to mr. I. that, as with all cask strength single malts, was quite bold and not really my style. hoping for a better appreciation of the balvenie with something that's younger and weaker.

    Balvenie makes a great gift. Universally appreciated whisky. I don't recall my tasting notes on this one when the Balvenie reps were presenting their new lines of whisky back around April. Let us know how it is.

    If you want to try something amazing, their new 17 year Madeira is f-ing fantastic. A bit pricey (around $115), but it is a really really really good bottle.
