Was out in the "Toon" for a meal last night and had.....
12yo Yamazaki
15yo Pappy Van Winkles Family Reserve Bourbon
20yo Pappy Van Winkles Family Reserve Bourbon

Really like the 12yo Yam , can't wait to try the supposedly better 18yo .
The two PVW were really nice but preferred the younger one as the 20yo was starting to push it wood wise .

I went looking for a new everyday scotch and bought a bottle of Grant's.

I don't like it. Nose: candied apricot and...mushroom? Alcohol sensation dominates in the mouth, very brash. Very long astringent finish. Bizarre.

This is probably a scotch best left for mixing.

My previous everyday whiskies have been Crown Royal and Ballantine's. Either of these beat the Grant's easily.

Yes I would. It is one of the best Bowmores I've had.

Far better than most (especially later bottlings) of the no-age-statement Darkest editions, I find. But you have to like that pronounced Sherry cask overlay of flavour for this one to work for you.

I tried that bad blended scotch from Grant's again.

I usually drink single malts in a brandy snifter, undiluted. The first time I had the Grant's, I drank it this way and it was awful. Last night, I tried it on the rocks and it was OK. Not great, just OK.

I can drink the Grant's now! :D I won't have to use it as a degreaser for my car now!

Nikka Taketsuru 12YO (lovely sweet-dry balance with the faintest whisper of smoke-infused oak... a little perfumey as well)
Dalmore 12YO (initially much sweeter and toffee-ish smoother than I reremembered, but gradually gaining in that bittersweet seville orange quality I like)
Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban (good flavour thrust... slight bitterness, possibly from a less prolonged maturation period combined with the higher proof... still think I prefer the old Port Wood Finish over this one)
Bowmore 16YO Wine Cask Matured Distilled 1992 (perhaps not quite as harmonious as the 1991 Port Matured edition, but very interesting nonetheless)

A BenRiach Authenticus 21yo peated, followed up by a Dalmore Stilman's Dram 28. The Dalmore was even better than I remembered, delightful.
