    Since it's semi on-topic, I wanted to talk Mortlach. I've read a few tidbits much earlier in this thread regarding the official bottling of the 16 year. It's at least $120 delivered to the US for this one bottle, so definitely an investment. Should I just stick to the independent Mortlach's that are available in Chicago (and often under $100) or give my palate a good perspective with this official release?
    I can't speak highly enough about the Binnys 21 year Mortlach, if its still around.

    Doing some sampling tonight while watching basketball and hockey. Off to see the in-laws in the morning.

    There are quite a few excellent IB versions of Mortlach - that OB 16yr F&F is a dusty now so if you're curious, I'd pick up a bottle.

    Does that drive you to drink that many bottles? Nice lineup BTW

    I don't get to bring any bottles down there, so I'm relaxing tonight. Started with the Glenfarclas...and now trying to decide where to go from here...

    Probably the Aberlour 13 CS from K&L.

    I stared at that Aberlour 13 for a few min during my last visit to K&L Hollywood but ended up going for the Kilkerran WIP #5 Bourbon. I think I made the right choice between the two but I was very interested in that Aberlour as I have enjoyed the rest of their lineup. I'd be curious to hear what you think of it.

    It's not like any other Aberlour. It's got big barley flavor to go with sweetness that tastes like a honeyed Walker's shortbread cookie. It's got a great, long finish too. It's very unique and very tasty.

    Going with one bottle straight down the line tonight...a newly opened Ardbeg 10. Now, the question begs, how many pours of said nectar will be missing by daybreak?

    I don't drink much Irish Whiskey but when I do it has been Redbreast CS. Toasted marshmallows on the nose and that pot-still element on the tongue ensures its future in my cabinet. .
