    Win-win? Same to you. Hopefully we can make that happen this summer and/or otherwise. The Power tequila dungeon is always open.

    I put a bottle of Caol Ila 12 out of its misery. I never really connected with this dram neat, so it live out most of it's life in cocktails that call for a peated whiskey. I have to say that it makes this Black Diamond Flip quite tasty.

    After a good 15 months, Redbreast 15 gave out its last last night. When I first opened it, I was disappointed - there just didn't seem to be much to it. So, it stayed in the shadows of my cabinets, coming out every now and then when I was bored with the usuals. Then one day, it hit me really well. Really, really well. For whatever reason, the clean, supple malt and rosy sherry notes came into focus for me in the best way, and I started loving on it. I am now a big fan and I think I prefer it to the PJL. I need to dig out a RB12 CS from the first release, because that one remains my favorite Irish, even though I grew to love the PJL I drank through more recently. I'm going to have to look to replace the 15, though, before prices are pushed further upwards.

    Ardbeg Uigeadail. It wasn't bad, but the bottle I have (from 2013), tasted heavily of overly young spirit. I can see how this would be amazing if it were older, but this just wasn't. Probably would not buy again. I wouldn't recommend it unless you can find a dusty that has a much higher quantity of older spirit.

    Killed a bottle of Benromach 10 this week. This was my second bottle - and I will be replacing it eventually because overall I enjoy it. It seems to have a unique smokiness without peat that I really like.

    But this one gets my award for being the most "all over the road" with me. One week I love it, and the next week I wonder what I was thinking.... and then back to love.

    First and last bottle of Lag 16. Finally killed it. Not my thing. Mild in every way, except in how much it would cost to replace.
