Always regret not nabbing a bottle of this back in the earlier days of my whisky adventures (could have been had then for CDN$50-odd, too).
We all have those regrets TTD. A contemplative malt for sure. Luckily that and the Mac '63 were poured for me by a generous acquaintance.
Aberlour 12, 16, A'Bunadh
Balvenie Double Wood, Single Barrel
Tasting with friends. The newbies seemed to like the Bowmore better than anyone else. A'Bunadh (batch 40) was not well appreciated. Single Barrel was my favorite. Aberlour 12 was the favorite of the Aberlours. Galileo was also well-liked.
Also, some partook of Laga 12, Octomore 2.0 and Bowmore 17.
I was surprised how well brownies paired with The Balvenie Single Barrel.
Followed that experiment up with some Bowmore 18 Year Old. Beguilingly complex and tasty, if not a patch on the best bottlings of the much more 'exotic' 17 Year Old issued years ago.
