Seems to be sort of a 'wine cask finished evening', as I'm now onto some Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban. Initially 'tame' when compared to the Arran Amarone, but gaining verve with every sip. A spicy, spirited dram overall, though the Port cask influence here pales in comparison to the velvety demeanour of the old Port Cask Finished 43%ABV edition. Am I looking back through rose coloured glasses?

The last dram of Bruichladdich Links Vancouver Golf Club. Had to try it since the golf club is in my neighbourhood, but never really fell in love with it. Too much strawberry candy flavour. I guess I'm not really a huge fan of wine finishes. Now onto a much more dependable Compass Box Spice Tree.

Went for a cuddle with my Bullmastiff who knocked the Yoichi 10 out of my hand and proceeded to lick it up.
Left me half angry half happy. Clearly a dog with refined tastes!

Mrs. Chef and her mother's cousin are watching a chilrens movie so to stand it I opted for a Laphroaig QC.

Caol Ila CS 58.6 %. That's a very good whisky IMHO.

OP 12

Almost gone, again pretty well put together but don't think I would be picking this up again. Payed $58 CDN would consider buying if it was on sale for $38 or under.
Just not my SMS I guess.

Fair enough Sean, Don't know until you try things however. Still think they have one of the coolest bottles around.

Had a few Laph QC's

Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban... This one's almost toast, and will not be a repeat purchase.
