    I've got a Glendronnach "Virgin Oak" 14...not sure which it is but I think it's finished in the virgin oak as opposed to aged an entire life in it like Ealanta. I did not realize until reading here how uncommon the latter actually is...interesting.

    Yep, I checked it after this posting and it is a 'finished in virgin oak'. I think when I bought it that I thought it was aged in American virgin oak...not reading label carefully enough. Oh well, planning on an Ealanta one day soon...if I can find one when $$ is available that is....always a challenge coordinating the two.

    I was going to post about Glenfiddich Rich Oak but then I read their fine print and its "finished" as well. Now I'm more leaning towards getting myself a bottle of Ealanta...

    I believe there is a Glen Garioch and Auchentoshan Virgin Oak. I haven't read the fine print though.

    Isn't that one from which the squirrels have not yet taken the nuts?
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Maybe it's the ugly one.
