Tonight I'm having the canadians, and posting my notes on the Candian Live tastings, I figure better late than never.

Starting of Seagram's VO Gold.

I know Nick, you're the one that pointed me in that direction. :D
Hmm, Talisker 18. I tried to order a case of it last november, Diageo still hasn't sent any this way. :twisted: But with your collection, I'm sure you can find something. :mrgreen:

Now I'm having a Glenfarclas 21 (also not available here) - lots of citrus tonight, and wood.

Just finished packing for my trip to Scotland tomorrow and I'm settling down to a dram of Glen Elgin 16yo '08 Special Release.

Hello all!

With Ganga not here to share drams with me tonight, I decided I would do some blends by my "lonesome", so to speak.... The blends: JW Red, JW Black, White Horse America's Cup, White Horse 1970's bottle, Spey Cast 12 yr, and J&B Royal Ages. In this group, the JWR was amazingly bland (and a shadow of itself of 25 yrs ago. I still have a couple 50 ml airline bottles of it for reference from the early 1980's). The JWB fared better, showing better balance and character. The White Horse's were definitely more "exciting" drams than the Walkers. The 1987 America's Cup is the smokiest blend in my memory and very "agressive" on the palate - but in a good way; the 1970's White Horse was less smokey but smoother with much more body (and Lagavulin) compared to the contemporary bottlings. But the two that were at the top of this sequence were the Speycast 12 yr (G&M), a full-bodied dram with a higher malt content than the previous mentioned drams and very little grain notes noticable. Surprisingly to me, the J&B Royal Ages was my fav, just edging out the Spey Cast 12. The Royal Ages had quite a "malty" nose, with candlewax and sandalwood prominent and no hints of grain. On the palate, those notes followed through along with a soft but indistinct fruity note. Very pleasant. Finish was all up front though - it was spead over the tongue, but abruptly stopped at the back (of the tongue). Aftertaste was warm and pleasant though... and just a bit on the sweet side. Yeah, I did notice a Knockando touch, too. Good stuff!

Slainte!

S'tan
