Lagavulin 16. I'm picking up more of its unique character relative to Uigeadail. The peat comes across more as grilled fruits than the tar of Oogie, though it has ample smoke too. And its greatest virtue is balance, such that the flavors are integrated and take time to resolve, whereas Oogie is a study in contrasts. I don't know which I like more, but who cares...each is a classic in its own right.
Talisker 10. I finally openend the 200ml bottle (in a set with DE and 18) I've had for a year. Again, a unique peat presentation. While the smoke is subdued on the nose, it brings to mind rocks over a campfire. And the pepper...fantastically intense! I can only imagine what a young cask strength Talisker would do. I expect to open the DE and 18 the next couple nights and compare all three at least once before they're done.
Caperdonich 1996, Signatory Vintage 12yo. I am so digging this. Malt, honey, lemon, and herbs. Highly recommended (I picked it up for $47 a while back).
Glen Ord 1998, Signatory Vintage 8yo. Better as the 4th whisky of the night than the first.
Evan Williams black label. This bottle is going down fast.
