That is so sad. What kind of a jerk would gift his friend whiskey that would ruin all others? :)

Peace,

You're welcome. My vast experience with vice is always willingly shared. Personally, I don't need more than a 12 year Doublewood to be happy with my Scotch. Scotch was never my fave but those Balvenie guys make one for me.

I like a good single-malt to sip. But all that high-end stuff is out of my league budgetwise. So I'm happy to enjoy a local product - McCarthy's. Quite good, esp. for the $45-50 pricetag. Brewed by a fellow that I have met, and that McColgin worked with. Because of the connection, I've set aside a bottle as 'bait' to entice Ian to come back to Oregon for a visit --

That is a special bottle. The Single Barrel 15 was my favorite in the line. Unfortunately it is no longer available.

there some lovely bottles here though, part of a fifty thousand dollar collection. . .

i'd like to give 1968 and 1990 a shot, what color!

Yeah, that's why it is still on my shelf with only a finger or two of liquid left. I don't want to finish it off and then not have it. :)

The one I got gifted was made in a single pot.

And I can’t go back, now...

The Balvenie isn’t scotch - I think it qualifies as the nectar of some Celtic god/goddess.

I wasn’t even a rum drinker. Then Paladin sent a bottle Ron Zacapa 23 on the occasion of Katherine saying “I do.”

I opened it and took a first giant slug on the way to the courthouse to get married.

No grudge on Lew, fellow from Scotland in another forum was quite enthusiastic about Aerstone.

What the hell is wrong with me? I've got absolutely no taste for hard booze. Red wine? Yes. Beer and booze I just can't learn to love. My tonque rejects it.

Now you guys have done it. I’ve had to pour a small taste of my Single Barrel 15 Year. I’ve had this bottle for six years and there is precious little left. But enough to recall the taste and it didn’t disappoint.

Cheers and onward to ‘19. Happy New Year all!

Here too.
I do enjoy a beer once in a while BUT it is generally just the one.
I do however really enjoy a glass of nice wine with a meal.

The Balvenie tasted like more. But I don’t have any more. So I had to resort to my Talisker 10 year. Definitely a little smokier, but it’ll do in a pinch.

Lew, how do you take yours? I find tha just a few drops of tap water will level a single malt out a little, but I am always afraid to contaminate it. And an ice cube really diluted it too much and has all kinds of refrigerator odors so that’s out.

Ron Zacapa? If so, yes, that rum is as complex as fine scotch.

I visit this couple every week to talk cars and politics and have been doing so for a few years. A few years of putting up with my company deserves compensation.:D:D

Neat. Same way I drink rum. It's hard to do much else with it when you're bottle to mouth.
