    Black Bush at the Irish place across from my Hotel. What a gorgeous pour of whiskey, this is.

    And at $35 a bottle, very good value - I went through mine in record time. The sherry finish complements the Bushmill's blend well, and IFRC there is a higher proportion of malt whiskey in the blend.

    About 50% malt I believe.

    Glenfiddich 18. I sometimes get so caught up in learning about or trying fancy and rare whiskey that I overlook the "regular" expressions. I realize that the 18 year is not exactly a bargain bottle, but for less than $100 (in this case $80 for a liter at the duty free) it's a very good dram. My palate is not as sensitive as some, or more likely I just can't put the flavors to words, but this scotch hits me with caramel, oak, and just a nice richness that I really appreciate without being over the top. The finish is a good medium length and leaves a sweetness that makes me smile.

    Not a bad dram at all.

    It's almost cliche at this point but I spent a nice evening with some Macallan 18 last night.

    Hey, enjoy, I remember when we couldn't get any Macallan at any price.

    Settled in for last night for a more than ample pour of '11 Lag 12yr CS,oh how I've missed this fine example of an Islay expression.

    I am enjoying a small pour from a sample of Highland Park (IB: Cadenhead) 25yr / 1988 (2013 bottling) @ 55.7%. The sherry overpowers the heather/honey of the HP profile a bit but this is still very good - I want vat this with some OB HP18 next pour.

    Edit 1: And staying with the sherry theme, I'm sipping from another sample bottle of Glenfarclas 25yr. This isn't the in-your-face type of sherried malt and it's quite good.

    Edit 2: Longmorn (IB: Van Wees Sherry Cask #72318) 5/1/96 - 7/23/13, 57.8%. This one has some rum and brandy notes.

    Edit 3: Lagavulin DE 1996-2012 - 43%.
