My daughter gave me a bottle of HP12 to open christmas day.
Just in time, as I finished my last 15 on christmas eve.
She is a star. It was exquisite.

OK. That's enough. You're making me jealous, again. My next bottle will be one of these.

Opened Macallan Speymalt 1970 46% by G&M last night. Takes time to open but it's VERY worth it..
The nose is very beautiful and complex, full of dried plums and salt and something floral I couldn't put a name on *yet*.
Palate is very "classical" *with my small experience with Macallan and especially old ones*, feels like an old car or a beautifully made antique cabinet :lol: round with dark caramel, candied citrus peels and nuts (?) then salt again and a finish strong on liquorice, the dark dry one, ..
Very delicious whisky. I don't know about the OB but this one was very affordable and was a great buy !

I have just been given a bottle of Glenmorangie 10, original distillery bottling from around 5 years ago, as somebody who knew me died and wanted me to have it. I will be interested to re visit this as I have not tried a "regular" Glenmo for some time.
I will let you know how it goes............... :angel:

I have the 1973 version and I really like it too. These are nice affordable Macallans, unlike the OBs in the same age range.

Did you see Serge's review of them? I sent him a sample of my 1973 which he reviewed here :thumbsup:

A couple of nice ones for this past weekend:

Glen Farclas 1965 (43yo) from OMC (Douglas Laing)

Port Ellen 24yo Editors Choice (Whisky Mag / Whisky Live London / Park Ave liquor) again from Douglas Laing.

Both bottles are excellent!

How's that going down Matthew? I recently opened a bottle of the 18yo Glenlivet that had been sitting on a shelf for years. I've spent a couple of really good evenings with it. It won't survive a third I don't think. Great stuff and fantastic value.

It is going down an absolute treat, it will definitely not last long! I got a miniature of the 18 a while back, may have to do a head to head
:D
