I bought a couple of the Glencairn Canadian whisky glasses, and I really like them. They've become my preferred glass for neat whisky, highballs, and beer. Next to original Glencairn for scale.

learn the art of the bottle lip. no glasses nor shirts required.

But, of course.  Damn, but don't I wish I were there to share these two exalted smoke monsters with you.  I do loves me some peat.  On the nose,in the mouth, and for the long, glorious finish.  

 

Thanks for the tasting notes, Bryan, and Cheers, all.

 

Soon, my friend. Soon we will imbibe!

 

I guessed Oogie for no. 2 but didn't know where to go with "Softly."   :-*

 

The guys over at TalkBeer have started doing immediate impressions where you're limited to exactly four words. So I need to say that Lagavulin was peaty... but softer than Laphroaig and Ardbeg. :P

Also something interesting I noticed - Lagavulin 16 is very similar to the nose on Longrow 18. Longrow's taste is a bit more complex and interesting, but for the money [it costs more than double in my area], Lagavulin still has a solid amount of value. Really smells noice.

Me: on Saturday my friend's and I visited a distillery in Denver.  It was good.  I'd encourage all of you to track down a bottle of Stranahan's.  It should be available in most major markets although they had to pull distribution back somewhat recently but have plans in the works to support nationwide in the next few years.

You do realize that's four roses, right? That's like Mikey stockpiling Macallan 10, ain't it? :)

 

Lol. 

 

Those are the limited editions though which are quite difficult to find.

 

Aye. In particular that 2010 Single Barrel LE (the 100th Anny).

Pappy thieves! Hanging's too good for them, amirite?

Franklin County Commonwealth’s Attorney Larry Cleveland said last week the case involves “more than I could imagine one person drinking in a lifetime.”

Anyone have any thoughts on Ardbeg Alligator?

 

My thoughts pretty much match fellow Plowdster Serge   -- http://www.whiskyfun.com/archiveseptember11-2.html#200911

 

Also has been referred to as soulless = 'good' flavor profile - but manufactured. 

 

Don't get me wrong I would drink if given. But Spending $100+ on a bottle is not worth my cash money (probably a lot more now on the secondary market)

 

(I hate discourage any malt purchase)

 

Cheers....

Head's up @mikeymad and @Voltron and anyone who likes Campbeltown spirits - 

Masterofmalt just listed the first single cask Kilkerran I've ever seen. It's a weird barrel (Calvados) but the price is seriously good and if they release more of these in sherry or bourbon.... could be awesome. I really like Al's Kilkerrans he had me try in January.
