    While technically not a Lowland, Springbank is sometimes grouped into the Lowlands. It really is a Campbeltown, but there are so few of each they sort've merged the two reagions. I just had a bunch of Springbanks with the Scotch Club including a glorious 22 year; barrelled 1972, bottled 1995. Oh my stars that was good stuff.

    so get THIS... my brother in law is from a town called Stornoway. it's on the Isle of Lewis, 'bout as high as Highland can be, save for Orkney.

    he was running a club there before he moved back to the States, and was just recently telling me how the proprietor of the place had bought a rather large amount of single malt from a nearby distillery (not sure if it was an Islands or Highlands) that runs a retail of a "hundred quid" easily... and that it was basically sitting there collecting dust... and was likely going to continue to do so.


    yeah, i'm in the process of attempting to cajole him into getting some of that shipped here... i even told him i'd pay the tax.

    On a whole other note, this is not to be missed:

    The Los Angeles Scotch Club

    This is not a for-profit group. I've tried drumming up some interest in the Scotch Club on this board in the past to a lukewarm response. This is the third time we are doing the Peatin Meatin. Its going to be the best one yet. And this year, we've got Scotch distilleries sponsoring the event (meaning they'll be brining their Scotch for us to enjoy!!!!).

    Slainte!

    sorry about that, sir. i would've jumped on that if i hadn't gotten pregnant close to the time you mentioned it and if i lived closer. nowadays, my scotch drinking usually occurs after i tuck her in and it's time for me to unwind. maybe when she's bigger...

    So, let's hear about some of these new finds... Littlemill? Tomatin (pretty good stuff)? Tomintoul (questionable material there, but you gotta try everything)?

    My new ones are a Signatory Vintage bottled for Binnys Royal Lochnagar, which is excellent. Got a Rosebank Flora & Fauna which needs some time to open up; very alcoholly right now. I also got an Elements of Islay Lagavulin, which, as you might expect, is heavily peated and ultra aggressive. My most recent pride and joy is a Gordon & MacPhails Dallas Dhu 22. Needs some time to open up, but when it does, it should be beyond excellent.

    Bump.

    Spent last night with friends drinking a variety of Arran (almost 20). Isle of Arran is a rather new distillery located on (ready for this) the Isle of Arran. As a young distillery, they do not have the volume to release standard 8 year, 10 year, 12 year whiskies. So what they did was release a variety of whiskies with different finishes; that is, age the whisky and then put in a unique cask for a couple of months to impart a unique taste. Many of these were quite successful. The Amarone finish is quite good as well as the Bourdeax and Champagne finishes. On top of all the unique finishes, they are starting to release single barrel bottles at cask strength which are pretty good too. These are pretty reasonably priced too.

    Anybody else tasted Arran? Good, bad, indifferent?
