    No, it's a Signatory 10yo bottled for Binny's.

    OK, thanks! Unfortunately Binny's won't ship here but it sounds intriguing.

The answer is yes because of the factors that I listed. See if you can get a sample of the Arran 14 CS. I'm in love with it at $100.
    I was at K&L tonight and I stared at the bottle for a while, but decided to pass. And funny you should mention the Arran since right after K&L I stopped at a Bevmo and grabbed a 12 year CS Arran on a whim. All told I have 9 bottles coming back with me, I'll post a pic up when I get home.

    Started the cold, frozen evening with a warming pour of Knappogue Castle, continued a bit later with Bruichladdich Laddie 10, and finishing up now with the lovely Redbreast 12CS.

    Last night it was Glenfiddich Cask of Dreams 2012 followed by 1990 GlenDronach 21 Oloroso Sherry Cask CS and Aberlour A'Bunadh batch 42. All great pours.

    my local whiskey guy was clearing out all the open Cheiftain's sample bottles he had that did not have a corresponding full bottle in the store.. I had a few very healthy pours of 22 yr Milton Duff and 17 yr Glenrothes.. The Milton Duff was a very impressive pour!! Really liking everything I have had from that particular distillery, the Glenrothes was OK but not nearly as flavorful as the milton duff

    Low budget night this time around....at least for starters - Jameson. First time I've tried it....not bad, not bad at all. Plan to follow it with some Bruichladdich Laddie 10 if I can stay awake long enough. Wish now I had picked up some JW Green when I saw it today to toast Sparty tonite for putting the wood to the Buckies....

    Suffering through some more of this infernal bottle of Glenlivet 12yr that I stupidly purchased.

    Trying some Still Waters Distillery Stalk & Barrel Single Malt (3yr, 61.3%, Cask #2) - grain is prominent on the nose and front of the palate and it's salty throughout (faint hints of stone fruit). Mouthfeel is great and doesn't drink hot like you'd think it would @ 61.3%. Will give this another go in a few days to see if I can tease more out of my palate.

    Following that Canadian Single Malt up with a sample of Bunnahabhain 1990 / 22yr Sherry Cask @ 52% (IB Whisky Faissle). I'm not very familiar with Bunna but this could pass as cross between Highland Park & Springbank... The smoke and dried fruit meld on the palate with an almost buttery mouthfeel.

    I've been interested in bunna but have yet to meet that interest with a pour.

    Having some uigeadail with a touch of Lasanta poured in, hoping for a little more sweetness and a rounder feel. It succeeds well enough. I like it.
    Definitely drink it...tonight -Sutton
