    Lots of choices at my small state-owned liquor store. Everything from Bowmore ($30) to Macallan ($180). Even noticed the J.W. Blue was going for $213.00 here!

    Settled on one that hasn't been mentioned, but looked interesting. Has anybody tried Speyburn? It's a 10 year old single malt that was on sale for $27.00 for 750ml. Thought someone might have had it before.

    Holy FREAKING crap.... the deliciousness factor on this thing is off the charts. Trying to sip other bottles and not drain it in a week, but it's so honeyed sweet, complex, superbly balanced and straight-up stupid yummy that it's hard to stop.

    The reviews--professional and amateur--sound like they are describing different Whisky altogether. Which probably makes sense for a "single cask" bottling, as each batch would be unique to some extent. Even at WhiskyMag Michael Jackson scored it 80, while Jim Murray went 95. I'm with Mr. Murray. Absolutely LOVE it.
    Nice, not that expensive too. I've had the 12yr Double Wood and the 21yr Portwood...might as well try a bottle of the 15yr Single Barrel.

    Do dat! From everything read there is plenty of bottle variation, so hope you like yours.


    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!
