    Yeah, Aaron - knowing what you've enjoyed so far, I think you'll really dig Hakashu 12. It's not a peat monster - just an incredibly well constructed pour. It's "tight and crisp" - just really well made, with a nice balance of green fruit and smoke (with some vanilla and mild oaky flavors). I'm pretty confident based on our past conversations that this will be something you really like.

    Let me know if you have trouble finding it - but Chicago should be well stocked.

    Just poured some Laphroaig Triple Wood. I keep going back and forth on this one . . . one time I really like it, the next time not so much.

    Fortunately, today it's a plus!

    A little Ardbeg Provenance tonight, while very good, I might say that I am a little disappointed or perhaps this is another example of my taster not quite being up for something this complex yet. That said, I read Serge's notes and get the same things in the finish he mentions pretty much spot on.

    **edit. Now that I have finished the healthy pour of the Provenance I'll say it is very damn good whisky, but can't help noticing a strong resemblance to the finest Stitzel Weller bourbon, makes me wonder if part of this was aged in ex S-W casks.

    Also had a pour of Port Charlotte cask 967 bottled by Malts of Scotland, another very good whisky, and hard to believe it is only 8 years old.

    Glenfarclas 21 while enjoying the wonderful spring weather,just a great dram light sweet entry of fruit just enough balance of sherry influence and a touch of aged wood bringing up the finish,a most enjoyable dram that truly defies its age.Thanks again Josh,great stuff well balanced and just a damn fine pour!

    I'm still working on this bottle of Highland Park 12. It's surprisingly good and complex for a middle shelf scotch. Yesterday I had a little and tasted sea creatures in it.

    Now, I understand this was made on one of the Orkney islands, and the barrels are probably sitting in an open air warehouse for 12 years, but for it to pick up even a subtle note of the essence of ocean is amazing to me.

    I found it easily enough nearby for $60. First impression, very nice. Definitely more interesting than other Japanese I've tried. It's a bit on the sweet side for me, though, and it brings this green apple jolly rancher profile. The smoke gives me something to chew on, but it still leaves me with too much sweet. Definitely a tight little pour, but as to whether it merits a repeat buy from me, I'll have to see if I can get over the sweetness by the end if the bottle.
