    Glenkinchie 10 - a very enjoyable, sweetish, almost dessert whiskey.

    Had a friend over Saturday night and put a big dent in a bottle of Redbreast 12 while we sat out on the patio for the first time this year.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    So agreed with the 12 and 15! (no experience with the 18, tho')

    The 'fiddich 15 might be my favorite 80 proof whisky. Just really excellent juice for the slight markup (here it's $41).

    Over the weekend I was able to enjoy some really unique Irish and Scotch whiskies. BenRiach cask strength, Cutty Sark cask strength, and Yellow Spot (SO GOOD!) all jump out as delicious. Really, REALLY wished I had thrown the BenRiach into one of my Master of Malt orders last fall.

    Those were all pretty great, and I'd just like to add the Nikka and your Bere Barley to the mix. Very nice.

    Forgot about the Nikka. That was very tasty as well. It was a wild night Saturday, I'm sure some other whiskies fell through the cracks. I wonder how many times I said "oh, s***, I forget what's in my glass"?

    Glad you enjoyed the Bruichladdich. It really is a favorite of mine.

    I am in agreement with you guys on this one. The Glenfiddich 15 is one of my favorites and I prefer the 15 to the 18. IMO, 15 years is the sweet spot for scotch. A lot of my favorites are right in that range.

    Tried a $37 dram of Glendronach 33 at the bar. Dark chocolate color, lovely nose, thin mouthfeel, and a tight finish. Definitely not over the hill, but would not buy a bottle unless it was a screaming deal. At 40% ABV it felt a little wimpy compared to the 1993 cask strength I got from K&L this year.

    Had a small pour of MacAllan Cask Strength - good but a "cleaner" Sherried malt than the Glendronach I had been enjoying as of late. I think I prefer the Glendronach but the MacAllan is cheaper and more readily available around these parts.
