1991 Bowmore Port Matured Cask Strength 16 Year Old as it poured... An initial explosion of sweet berry fruit followed by everything Loch Indaal could throw at the spirit.

Well congratulations Les. Today marks our anniversary. Unfortunately (or is that fortunately) she and the kids are leaving for a week today. :D :(


Congratulation Les and Ganga (for your separate anniversaries)

Last night I had Monkey Shoulder (Sample), it was not bad at all! Followed by Macallan 10yo Fine Oak

Congratulations Ganga.
I finished the Laphroaig OMC 18yo 1987 on Saturday (finally). It was kind of a disapointing whisky.
Last night I had a Port Ellen 7th release. Even though my tasts buds had an off day it's still a very good whisky.

A dram of Ardbeg 10, and I could hardly smell or taste a thing, so I gave up. Damn flu.

First was an old grain whisky - North of Scotland 39yo 'Clan Denny' by Douglas Laing.
Second was a sample of a smoky Irish whiskey that will shortly be released - Connemara Sherry Finish from their new Small Batch Collection.

Both very good - read our full reviews on the Whisky For Everyone blog.

The Laphroaig 18yo. Now, I was very curious what this one would taste like. I immediatly smelled some salty notes and fresh oak. I think it's a kind of subtle, smooth nose. Not so overwhelming as some other Islay whiskies. On the palate tasted peat, some smoke and again this fresh oak. There is some saltiness but it's not overpowering. The finish is in my mind very long with a peppery and salty aftertaste. I can't properly remember what the 15yo tasted like (it's been over 3 years since I last had it) but I know I liked it a lot. In my humble opinion this is a good whisky but I never had that 'WOW' effect. I'll have to try some more. Maybe I'll like it better after a few drams.

Despite my flu a dram each of Ardbeg 10, Ardbeg Uigeadail and Laphroaig 10. It was probably pointless opening the Uigeadail. I'll leave it alone now until I've recovered.

Again the Laph 18yo but I'm still not impressed. The nose is vey faint. Even when I let it breath for about 20 minutes there was not a significant change.

Bruichladdich Links Carnoustie 14yo (Neat)

One of the first times I have had a Whisky neat, I usually drink it on the rocks. Not sure which way I prefer but it is a totally different creature.

2 Nights ago i was with Willie JJ, he said the Ardbeg and octomore gave me bragging rights.......
Not very many Octomores have been opened.....
We had
Ardbeg Supernova Committee Reserve 58.9% X2
Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish 43% X1
Mortlach 16yo 43% X1
Mortlach 18yo 55% X1
Octomore 01.1 5yo 63.5% X1

Ardbeg Supernova. I got back in touch with a good old school friend after more than 2 years of silence so I had something to celebrate. And super it was, compared to the Laphroaig 18yo (OB).

But you lived to tell the tale. What is it tomorrow night? :)


I went a little tamer....

Oban 14 followed by
Yamazaki 12 yr
HP 12
and a Scapa 14 yr

It might be a while before I by another bottle of Islay as it will take some time to get through the Laphroaig.

I don't normally take notes. But I will send you a pm of tasting notes from memory. I have had this one on many occasions.

I went to my dad's place yesterday and brought along some whisky. My dad, his lady friend, and I had small pours of the following:

Forty Creek Barrel Select
Powers
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Highland Park 15yo single cask for GvM
Old Weller Antique 107

Both my dad and his SO liked Powers most, followed by the HP. Some months ago I had brought Laph 10, HP 12, and Macallan 12, which was their first time trying single malts and whisky neat or with just water (though they often drink blended scotch and soda). It's been fun introducing them to my interest, and they both said they enjoyed it.

It's amazing to me how much glasses matter though. We started with rather large brandy glasses, and the Forty Creek didn't smell or taste right at all. So we switched to small tumblers and while not ideal, everything worked from then on. In fact, the HP was the best it's tasted since I've opened the bottle. I re-tried the FC in the tumbler and it was just as I remembered, sumptuous rather than spirity as it was in the brandy glass.

With dinner, an Italian red table wine that was all cherries and plums, yet a thin body...didn't really work for me.

I started with a Duvel, which tasted a bit flat to my surpise. Even the colour was too pale. Maybe the bottle was a bit 'off'. I finished with a Lagavulin 16yo.
