Re: NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCTION AREA

Saludos! I've been a whisky drinker since I was 13, raiding my parent’s liqour cabinet (they really didn’t drink just had it on hand) J&B, Segrams 7, VO and Canadian Club. Also during holidays on my fathers side his family were huge booze hounds, which is where I met Dewars and Soda. I started w...

Re: What did you drink last night?

Had two Lagavulin 16s. One purchased this year and the other purchased in 2006. The difference is remarkable. It was sort of a head to head taste test, having known the recipe had changed in the early to mid 1990s. The old smoky iodine peat bomb is no longer what it used to be. I will continue with ...

When I want smooth I like Glenmorangie Madera wood (Nectar D'Or). My smooth mainstay used to be Dalwhinnie but no more as of about 15 years ago. My go to big s...

Re: has Lagavulin changed?

I have read this thread a few times in the past year. In 2006 I moved out of the country and purchased 19 bottles from what I assume was the 2005 bottling to bring with me. About 3 years ago I had some decent duty free opportunities ($70/ea) and decided to start my supply up again as I was down to a...
