Talking to my boss last year about what drinks we loved, I mentioned how I loved Johnny Walker Blue and what do I get from him for a Christmas bonus?? You guessed it. It's $255 here in Arkansas. Blew me away. He just retired so no such luck next time.

Looks like those were my tasting notes about 9 years ago. I can't say much has changed, except that my nose and palate seem to be more sensitive.
Peat smoke, herbs, mouthwash, eucalyptus, anesthetic rub (?), tree bark, wild berries. The soft viscous mouthfeel of this one is just unparalleled for the price, a bit sea-waterish on the palate, with a huge aspirin-y finish (still mouth-puckering!) that resonates with a powerfully medieval melange of fruity notes.
Mine was matured in a 200L Corio port barrel, most of which went to Rialto Tower's famous resteraunt: Lui's Bar, which was the name of the bottle.
I cracked it open recently and wow. You've heard of a sherry monster. This was a port monster, if such a thing exists. It was amazing - powerful and with a very wine-y finish.
Keep on waffling!
2. 3 x Breizh Blended Whisky Breton
3. 5 x Masterson's 12 Year Old Straight Wheat
4. 2 x Yellow Rose Straight Rye Whiskey
5. 5 x Elijah Craig 12 Years Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon sadly one of the last 12YO
6. 5 x Ninety Canadian Rye Whisky 20 Year Old also sadly one of the last bottles available.
ALL of it I purchased in last two weeks. Now I'm waiting impatiently for my credit cart statement.
Went to a tasting last night, tried the Northern Harvest and quite frankly, with all due respect, don't waste your money on it. It's a decent Rye but not one of the best in the World. And I own two of it!

Have I read that correct 13 dollars for 1.75 litres??
If it is it is one of the best deals I have ever heard of?
