Aberlour a'bunadh Batch No. 13 with a drop of water in the glass. Nut oils and Seville orange marmalade on the nose. Just so smooth and sumptuous on the palate before biting back a tiny bit at the finish. Perfect balance between richness and verve.

Oh well... That bottle's bit the dust too now.

Mike, that is available out here for $100 (one bottle left), is it worth it? thanks.



color: straw
nose: loads of peachs with vanilla with a bit of yeasty bread and oats
palate: very sweet honey glazed peaches and dark chocolate
finish: sweetness from the chocolate turns very tarry and bitter

its ok, i personally would use the 100 towards something else.

Now onto my new bottle of Laga 1993 DE. Not as sherried as the 1991 DE, but enjoyable. In a week or two I will do these two HTH.


sounds good. i have an unopened bottle distilled 1990 and bottled 2006. hows it compare?

In fairness I just opened the 1993 so it might need a little time to open up.


thanks for your thoughts. i look forward to hearing how it changes. well been craving for some sherried stuffs.

onto glendronach revival. so tempted to open up my 1968

Glenlivet 15YO French Oak Reserve. This evening, I'm primarily picking up cooked peaches, bananas and vanilla custard on the nose, with subtle nuances of orange peel and faint musk as well. The flavour showcases the influence of the oak to a much greater degree, with crisp, tannic notes of spice continually popping onto the palate amidst the sweet'n'dry malt core. Very solid finish, too.

A really good middleweight Speysider!

That said, everytime I pour this one, or the regular 12YO or 18YO, my mind immediately kicks in questioning how each would fare against the cask strength Nàdurra.
:wink:

I really like the Revival though I got my bottle from the UK.

The end of my Laph 10 CS to end the night.



Oh no! Any plans to replace it? :angel:

Just finished a dram of Balvenie DW now on to a Balvenie Sig 12 I should have done this the other way around the DW is much better :thumbsup:

Laphroaig 18.
A good peaty mouthful, but not as exciting as you might expect given the fuss over this one. I prefer my 1987 Old Malt Cask 18 year old Laphroaig over this one.

Yamazaki 10, I'm really enjoying this. Many people have described this as an archetypal speysider, my mission for the next 6 weeks is to revisit my speysiders. I have just noticed that this is one of only 3 screwtopped single malts I own, an excellent justification to purchase a few more :wink:

Arran Bourbon Single Cask, distilled 1998 and bottled 2009. Tonight, I'm tasting crisp apples, lemon, vanilla and, as always, considerable fresh mint. There's also a noticeable undercurrent of saltiness - the sort one experiences from crunching on coarsely ground sea salt. Very invigorating, indeed!

Compass Box Oak Cross. Quite light and fruity.
Good for an evening when you don't want your whisky to bite back.

Glad i can get some reaction from someone Nick !
Have now moved onto Amrut , first off had a Blackadder Bottling at 62.7% and then a Two Continents . This stuff is stunningly good and reasonably priced (Scottish Distillers take note.....) , also diverted off to order a Double Cask from TWE....
