Apparently I forgot about the stag hunting last weekend. But startin tonight.

A seagul accidenlty got hit. Might as well have an OP 17 in its honor.

This whisky is really hitting the spot tonight.

Getting a lot more of the classic OP character, but a lot more spices and other complexities from the extra age.

Mango, salt, dried apricots, and some subtle spices linger throughout.

01-09 GM Tomatin Cask 3143 1st fill Bourbon barrel.

Good bit of black pepper today. Its nice and easily drinkable, but its very sutble fruit with a lot of black pepper, and some simple syrup. Perhaps a touch of creme in there too.

Like I said very simple but easily enjoyable.

99-09 GM Dufftown Cask 8787 56.4%

The dram known as the Spiked Tropical Fruit Punch Dram.

Do I need to say much more, other than it continues to live up to its name?

99-12 GM Glenallach cask 501049 61.6%


Butter and oil, with a good bit of toasted coconut, and some nice peaty flavors in there. A solid peaty whisky, though not what anyone who loves the Islay beasts are looking for. But for someone like me who likes peatlight so to speak, a solid exposure to peat, and very enjoyable.

04-06 GM Caol Ila Cask 306445 60.3%

As it has been opened it is now a lot more bareable without water, though still incredibly harsh. Some nice deep golden toast, and fried eggs with lots of fresh cracked black pepper. With a healthy side of nice tart green apples, and coconut shavings. But a heck of a lot of alcohol burn. With a touch of ash in there too.

Dilute it with a touch of water, and it comes alive:

Oily, green apples, and coconut, with a good bit of vanilla, still got the cracked pepper but a lot sweeter and no longer burning the whole time.
