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

I haven't posted in more than 2 months yet no whisky purchases...all tequila. Fina Estampa Blanco & Reposado - my favorite tequila so far. Dangerously drinkable, this has the gorgeous softness/fruitiness/sweetness of a good highland, with still plenty of agave hit in the rep. Looking forward to...

Re: What are you listening to while drinking whisky

Bredman, how does Mano Negra compare to Manu Chao's "solo" work? I've never heard them, but do like Manu Chao.

I notice I neglected to post my consumption of Glengoyne Scottish Oak and 311's From Chaos that occurred between my two posts above.

Desire would be a near perfect album without Hurricane and Joey. As it is it's damn good, I just can't get into those two (endless) songs. Personal taste and all that... :P

Tool - Aenima Awesome album. Saw them in concert last summer - the previous time I had seen them was back in 2001 for the Lateralus Tour and then prior to that in the early 1990s! The show's have changed a bit (i.e. bigger budgets compared to the first shows!), but still as awesomely weird, eclecti...

Re: The Next Steps

Cragganmore 12 has to be mentioned here as another bourbon-cask matured Speyside. Lovely maltiness with floral and fruity notes.

Balvenie 15 Single Barrel and Glenlivet 15 French Oak will likely appeal to you as well.

Re: Lagavulin 16 to end tasting

I've only been through one bottle of Laga 16 (L9) so can't compare it to earlier batches, but I was underwhelmed relative to the descriptions of others here.

Bredman, I saw Manu Chao play the Roskilde Festival in Denmark in 2000, great energetic show.

Sean, I love that Verve Pipe song, too bad the rest of the album is fairly meh.
