Edit: Logging off supper is ready. mrs Musky doesn't brook delays.
Mine doesn't carry the date like that. There are two codes: TD-S:5 AM on the front of the bottleWillie JJ wrote:Ok. Mine is a 1990 distillation. After I got my specs on I could actually see that it says right under the distillation year that it was bottled in 2003.

There was a discussion by Yellowjacket in Feb, 2007 about this on the thread:
Nothing further seems to have developed since then. Maybe I should go check the Diageo website... (edit)appears to be a 12 yo according to the general Diageo information.

This is followed through on the palate which is quite complex wiuth different notes of iodine, peat, honey and oak coming through at different times.
Finish long and "hot"
I'd forgotten how good this is.
Question: should I open my 10yo "Map" bottle or is it becoming collectable?
I picked up a dusty "Map" Bottle recently at my local PO/corner shop. for about £20 just in case it was to go up in value.
i'd hold it for a few more years still though.
Secondly, there's going to be another online tasting where we do it "blind" but I'm waiting to hear from Johnathan and Christian on their availability for that one, hopefully on a Saturday.

I'm working this Saturday but I'd love to check the thread once in a while!

What's everyone have?
I'd like to take part in this month's tasting too, but I have no bottles of Balvenie at home. It's just not something I typically have hanging around. I did get a chance to try the "New Wood" 17yr a while back, now that's good stuff. I'll have to see what I can do before March 29th I guess.
A triple pack of miniatures and a bottle of something else might fix that, though.
Lately I try to solve this problem by inviting people over for a tasting. Problem is that the wrong bottles empty first, A'bunadh is empty(since last night), Tamnavullin never seems to go empty...
A hundred open bottles is like a library, very nice.
I have a DW12, a PW21 and probably buy a FR10 for the Live tasting.
