    I kid, I kid... Seriously though, Glendronach is one of my favorites - I should stock up on the 12 & 15 as my go-to sherried malt.

    If you like sherry speysiders, Glendronach is the best IMO. I just tried the 15 revival last night for the first time and it was spectacular.

    Hi Time has the best prices around on both. Tell them that Tequila Tourist sent you...

    Are there multiple 15 year expressions? And what about cask strength that are available online? I'll check out high time, they already know me somewhat due to my previous orders

    Argh, I just checked local prices and again, we are so freaking high. The 15 year is $100 before taxes, so call it $125 or so after where as it's less than $70 online!

    it's $75 at the sale, which means it's about $71 out the door. Hi Time is $66 + shipping. HT is a bit cheaper and they're definitely cheaper on the 12 year. K&L had some Glendronach CS gems, but they're significantly higher ($130+). Living in WA must suck to buy booze. We all need to buy in Wisconsin where they get pissed without their booze and the tax is like 5.5%.

    I've been eyeing the 15 as well. At the same store, there is a Chieftain's Mortlach 15 (CS) that is also tempting me. I think K&L may have a few of these Mortlach's as well. Anyone have an opinion on which would be more worth the money? (The Mortlach is around $85 I think).
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Is that Mortlach 15 matured in first fill sherry casks? I've only had the sherried expression and it was fantastic.

    It's from a single sherry butt (I'm guessing not 1st fill based on the color).
