    When I got the opportunity, I had to get 'em - this is quite simply the best Scotch I've had in my short whisk(e)y lifetime.

    For sipping? ;-)

    So a bottle of Longrow 18 followed me home today - thanks in part to timd's posts on this expression.

    I agree with you but, incredibly, someone called it "the worst scotch" s/he ever tasted (post #39). LOL

    Yeah, jonnyd didn't like it. Maybe he had a bad bottle. It happens. Who knows? I like better than some other peatsmoke scotches I have had, some of which are exactly as he describes. That bandaid iodine seaweed flavor can be good if it blends with the sweetness of the malt just right, but not when it overpowers it.

    Talisker does it right, in my opinion. It has a peppery tingly flavor too that really makes my tongue buzz on the finish.
    He made himself another drink and thought how much better the Perrier was than anything else you could put in whisky... Hemingway

    Whooo boy do those look like a few nice finds. Karuizawa sherry and a nicely aged Hanyu. Great pickups.
