A rather lovely 15 y.o Linkwood at Cask strength - fortified me to the end of the Party. :thumbsup:

Focused on the always palate-awakening Ardbeg 10, the very, very good Arran Single Sherry Cask and the excellent rye-based High West Distillery Rendezvous Whiskey over the course of this weekend past.

WooHoo!!!

Back in the saddle.

Had some Buffalo Trace followed by The Glenmorangie LaSanta. I know...a strange combination :shock: I had some mexican food for dinner....maybe that had something to do with it. :?

A friend kindly bought me a dram of Bruichladdich Rocks in the pub last night. First time I've tried it, and I have to admit, I was unimpressed. I found it a bit flimsy.

Best one I've tried from them is the 3D3. Which others are actually nice to drink (and not just sit on your shelf as part of a collection!) by 'Laddie?

Not last night, but a short time ago had the following, in order, at World of Whiskies in Heathrow.

Balblair 1997 (43%) : Very flavorful and enjoyable, seems like a real BFYB kind of whisky.

Highland Park 1990 (40%): Tastes every bit 40% with too many muted flavors. This whisky begs to be bottled at higher strength. No way would I pay 80 quid for this.

Talisker 57' North (57%): Interesting taste that didn't have me thinking Talisker but BenRiach 'Authenticus' for some reason. Would have liked a bigger sample on this one as I suspect I missed a lot. Yet, it didn't 'wow' me like other cask strength Taliskers.

I very much appreciated the opportunity to sample some whiskies at World of Whiskies. Of course, the necessarily small samples are not the best way to come to some judgment on them. Still, sometimes that's all one gets and in this case I think the Balblair and Talisker deserve a second chance.

Started with a Grey Goose Rocks, then with dinner had a 2006 Stag's Leap Cabernet Sauvignon, and to finish the evening when I got home a Usquaebach Reserve.

A Nikka from the Barrel sample sent to me by Nick. A lovely dram.

Then a couple of Dalwhinnie 15's with a couple of ice cubes (made from spring water) on this warm summers' evening.

Glen Deveron 10 yr old, vintage 1995. Quite good. Reviews aren't positive but I like it. Lots of wood smoke, oak, citrus and orange rind.

Some "Whisky Lounge" Festival Blend 2009 with a little ice on a hot summers' evening.

The first was large and the second was larger as it finished off the bottle. :roll:

A couple of Balblair 89's whilst silently watching the World cup Final - I say silently because I turn the sound down to get away from the VuVuZela racket.
