Highland Park 12
GF 14 Rich Oak
2 x GF 15 DE
..... and i went in to buy just the GF 15 DE cos its the first time its really commercially available in south africa. (tasted it at a whisky festival earlier this year).
I have petrol money for the rest of the year. I will just have to live on whatever is left in the grocery cupoboard
& an Oude Meester 12 YO Brandy because it came with a crystal decanter? Always wanted to have one of those - you know - like in Lex Luthors Office in Smallville.
Balvenie Doublewood 17
Ileach Cask Strength
Bowmore Handfilled, 16 years in a sherry butt
and..... the sherried Laphroaig 'Triplewood'
The Ileach Cask Strength is a very heavy dram, I'd imagine this will be too pungent for a lot of folk

You've tried it then . Luckily it is my reserve second bottle as the first is nearly finished. I think I'll keep that one for a while. The sad news is that I think that is the last of the Cadenhead's 1977 Convalmore as I heard that Mark Watt vatted the last of the casks for this bottling. I hope that's wrong, but suspect it is true. Did you ever try the 30yo they did a few years ago? It was incredible too.[/quote]
I haven't tried this one Willie, but i have some of the past Cadenhead's bottlings of Convalmore -- and others. I am a fan of the (lost) distillery.

I'll pm you, you never know who's watching.

That sounds excellent.
G&M Linkwood 1991 20 y.o. Cote Rotie wood finish. Picked up in Toronto at Christmas
(Last one in the province and spectacular)
Arran Amarone Cask Picked up here at the local LCBO. The new assistant manager is another whisky maven. Thankfully!
Then the 'Berlin edition' Craigellachie 14y 55,1% again bit of a surprise so had to snap that up. I always go in thinking of buying X&Y and come out with ABC.
I finally purchased a bottle of this whisky. Interesting. It has the nose of alcohol and almonds yet the mouthfeel is pleasant, slightly bitter at first, then you pick up notes of nutmeg and a hint of citrus before it settles onto the tip of the tongue where it sits for a long time. However the initial strike at the back of the throat doesn’t hang around long.
A decent dram, not spectacular but pleasant to the palate. Not what I’d consider a waste of money but I wouldn’t replace it once empty, there are a lot of superior drams out there. In my humble opinion, far superior to Belgiums’ Owl whisky.
