Whoa... it's been years (and I was wasted at that point of the evening) but remember clearly the 21yr PortWood blowing my mind into itty bitty pieces. Love to try it again someday.

Just thought I'd share what my coffee table looked like while watching Game 5 last night with like-minded whisky geeks.

I heard our boys killed Bin Laden, and I had to celebrate by opening up this bad boy. Damn that was nice.

i needed a whisky (and fast!) to break in the new digs, so i decided to try...
... because i was curious.
a LOT of people feel it's too astringent and oaky. i though it was a little hot, but there's STILL that sweet something that's unique to all Macallans that i still enjoy.
rumor is, this particular gets better after a while and that it's a good lead-in if you're gonna go full battle rattle on the evening... i'd probably follow this with some smoke like Talisker or something.
i think some of you f***ers and your Islay malts are CA-RAYZEE!
