Four new soldiers to replace the 3 recently deceased, and he who is about to die. I realised I need to restock my selection with lower priced whisky so my good bottles last longer, as they really got burned up quickly recently.

All are 12 years old, and bottled at 43%.

I love all the extra gift packs that come out around the Holidays.

Today I picked up:

Macallan 12 ( with a free sampler of the 18).
Aberlour Abunadh batch 42 60.3%
90-21 SV Mortlach cask 6073 Sherry Butt 52.8% ( If I am reading the date right its really 9 days from being 22 years old) Binnys Beverage Depot.

And Just to spite Donald Trump: Glenfiddich 12 with a nosing glass and "whisky notebook."

I'd like to see a review of this. I'm thinking that we need to revive the Trader Joe's thread and start a Kirkland thread to keep track of the hits and misses.


Oh as it fit in sort of with the December tasting thread, I posted notes there. I should have cross linked them.

Benriach 12 Year Old, Matured in Sherry Wood (46%ABV, aged in Pédro Ximénez and Oloroso oak, not chill-filtered & natural colour)... Quite the bargain, this one, given the quality. Very clean Sherry influence with oodles of fruitcake flavour and a nice top-layer of spirit and spices.

It's nice to come across such reasonably priced gems, especially given the industry trend toward more expensive offerings these days.

Picked up a Blantons Bourbon, $5.00 off at the local LCBO. Never tried any bourbon before, own three now. I liked the race horse on the cork and the discount.

I may have to have a sample or three this long weekend. ("Bank holi" for those in the UK)
