    $100 is actually not bad at this point. Sad to say that. This last shipment of Talisker 18 is on the shelf at $150. The 25 is up to $300.

    Talisker 18 is normally $125-140 in these parts but through diligent research I was able to locate the odd bottles on the shelf at 2005 prices. I hadn't planned on buying that much of the 18 but at that price I couldn't walk away. What's scary is how much premium single malts have gone up in price in just a few years.

    Very true. Just amazing. Mac 25 is up to $900 in these parts, and we can't keep it on the shelf.

    Picked up a Scapa 12, passed on The Macallan 18 1986 and earlier...for now.

    We recently did a side-by-side of a 1980 Mac 18 and the current Mac 18. It was shocking how distinctly different they were, and how much more depth there was to the 1980. It was delicious. If I ran across one, I would certainly pick it up. Especially if it hadn't been marked up to current prices.

    A regrettable trend across the board. When the World of Whisky was in the doldrums a few decades back we were getting better barrel selection. Now that brands are riding a crest we're getting some stuff that years ago would've been sent to the Blenders.

    Just went to a liquor and found two bottles of this from 1986 but didn't buy them, wanted to get some info on it first. They also had an old bottle of Cutty Sark. Couldn't date it but the writing was in script instead of the block lettering and had some evaporation on it.

    Re: Foreign Whiskey Dusty Hunting/Drinking 2013

    Will put together a picture soon, but found some interesting dusty malts when out bourbon hunting with michaelturtle. I am not a scotch expert, although I do know what would be major dusty scores (Ardbeg 17, Bowmore Sea Dragon), but I thought this wasn't too bad. Don't know much about the Glen Keith or Longmorn.

    From the mid 90s:
    White Horse Lagavulin 16 OB
    Talisker 10 Map Label OB
    Glen Keith 1983 OB
    Longmorn 15 OB
    Glenkinchie 10 OB

    As well as:
    Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist (Bottled 2006)
    Glenlivet 12 (for $13)

    At what price is Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist worth hunting for?

    oke, not great w tasting notes but my recollection was nothing too nuanced or memorable about the juice. Kind of "typical" blended Canadian at 80 proof. Pleasant but wouldn't go out of my way to get it. Enjoyed it more for the fact I was 12 when it was bottled
