Highland Park 12 years, a day late no doubt! :evil: This is a wonderful dram. My bottle is getting low :twisted: I _have_ to get myself another bottle of that one.

Re: Guezz the Whisz

Could it be Hazelburn, could it? Hazelburn Distillery was a distillery in Campbeltown, Scotland, which was in operation between approximately 1825 and 1925. In 1886, it had 22 employees and produced 192,000 gallons of whisky per year, making it the largest distillery in the town. The distillery was...

Re: Talisker Distiller's Edition 1992

The DE is good, I think it's equal but different to the 18yo. I rank the 175th anniversary edition higher (yeah, I do, when compared H2H :oops: ), but the DE is certainly one of my favorite Taliskers. Much better than the 25yo, IMHO. It strikes a fine balance that makes the Talisker just that tiny b...

Re: Highland Park - One in a Million

I hope it's a rumour, since any HP bottling is worth checking out...

And if it's a standard 12yo, there's no need to open it. Just buy the regular for a few bucks. This sure is a collectors item, not meant for drinking.

How about doing a tasting of the Distiller's Edition malts at some point in the future? I adore the Cragganmore one and would be keen to try others. That would be fun, but a H2H of all 6 or 7 expressions (from a single year) would be an expensive excercise for most I guess, unless you already own t...

I am really eager to try Springbank, so I voted for that. Only have one 'Laddie, the 1984, and no Balvenie or St. Magdalene. Do have one Rosebank though, a 20yo 1981 vintage so I guess that counts as a closed lowlander?

Don't have much HP open, and just poured myself a dram of Black Bottle, but will certainly get a 18yo and a 22yo bottled by the SMWS to join in the party.

Won't open up my 30yo just yet ;)

Re: OB OR IB

Mainly OB's. I think it looks and feels a lot better if you have the bottles lined up nicely by distillery, clearly showing similar expressions... A lineup of IB's can consist of a single bottler, covering most popular distilleries. This doesn't appeal to me from a drinking collector's point of view...

Re: What is your most recent (whisky) purchase.

I got a bottle of Glenfarclas 25yo for a friends birthday last week.. He opened it up the same evening, so I got a chance to try it out right away. It was pretty nice, especially considering the price for a 25yo (75 euros, after a 20% discount at my local shop). Didn't get any notes, though.
