    Well then, in that case... Here's your Exhibit A for Orgasmic Whisky Reviewing:

    http://www.bruichladdich.com/news/wh...c6-single-malt

    From Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2009, the tasting note for the Port Charlotte PC6:

    “Nose 24.5: "Ohhhhhh… arrrrrrrrgh…mmmmmmm... Oh, the peat, the peat… Yessssss… Oh my God..., mmmmmm… ohhhhhhh…

    “Taste 24.0: First you get the smoky… Ooooohhhhhhh… arrrrrrrrrr… Then the sweeter..., mmmmmmmm… arrrroooohhhh…

    “Finish 24.0: It finishes with a more gentle arghoooo... mmmmmmm... oooophhhhhh… arrrrrrrrrr…

    “Overall 24.0: Not many whiskies have a truly unmistakable nose… and…, but this is, this… is..., this… mmmmmmm... arrrrrhh. Ohhhhhhh…”


    The total of 96.5% ensured, despite being only 6 years old, PC6 won two awards: Winner of Best New Whisky and Best Whisky 12 years and under.




    Edit: Back on track...

    Got this in a trade:



    Glendronach 20yr / 1993 - Cask # 3, Oloroso Butt, 52.9% (Batch 8)

    For sure! That'd be a blast & my bunker is always open to you... Hell, it'd give me an excuse to open more bottles to try.
