Celebrating a return from my absence from Whiskey at least for the holiday season, while picking up a Bushmills Black Bush, and an Eagle Rare 10 Year Old.

Hi Nick ,
Have opened it , it's not as bad as the Gorda casks ! think it needs time to air (and probably warm up seeing it's been effectively outside for 2 days....) .
Somethings confusing me about it tho , it says Aug 1996 as the distillation date , 10yo as the age but it's in a new style bottle.....
I'd be interested to hear what they say when you ring up to cancel , presumably they'll ask you why ? There's still enought to keep me interested in the Society for the time being......

That's the Guy who has just appeared on Twitter , Kai ?
It's terrible that they can't answer any comments regarding bad bottlings , i posted another thing on the Facebook page , this time about the tasting notes and how some of them don't bare any resemblance to the whisky , Guess what ? No reply !

Picked up a bottle of Macallan 12 y.o for the holidays. I would probably have picked up a bottle more quickly.

A 35.45, I’m putting this aside for Christmas morning; I'll need something to sweeten me up; we've got all the wee Barleycorns coming home for the holidays. Also got a 128.1, I’m going to keep this one for the collection.

Loving it even more than the last bottle I had C. Very complex and soooooooooo long. Not as peaty as the 10 but that lovely swirling smoke that intertwines with all the other flavours, something that I get in some Japanese whisky's. Still one of the best whisky's I've ever had.

I feel the same way. A simply superlative combination of complexity and character.

Gave in to my vow of not spending silly money on bottles and succumbed to the latest Single cask Ardbeg while at the distillery having lunch . Glad i did it's superb ! Especially sitting in a Cottage on the outside of Port Charlotte in front of a real fire :P

Found another 2005 Classic Islay Collection and I couldn't say no.

IMO this is a steal - cost was EU136.00 and by a 7:2 ratio a PE 5th Release 200ml would run about EU100.00 or more. So you get a Laga 12, Laga 16, CI 12 and CI 18 200ml for EU9.00 each. Even in Europe this is a great value...in South Africa it's ridiculously cheap.

Golden Horse The Single Malt Chichibu 12 56%

Becuase it's brilliant, rarer than hens teeth, good value, and I'd be gutted if I didn't buy one to put away for future. I've only ever seen 2 for sale and I've bought them both now.
