    That's exactly how I felt about it the first time I tried it. 32 year old blended. You get something different each time. On richness of flavor, you might not think that it's a $100 bottle. But then after spending more time with it, you get a ton more complexity and then want to go back to it. Not as good as TUN Batch 9 (because it's not as rich), similar in that there's a lot of flavor and it's a "thinker."

    Is it worth the price tag in your opinion? I'm stopping by K&L tomorrow...

    It's weird... I think it's got Rosebank or something Lowland in it.

    It would definitely be a conversation piece!

    You really do need to see the movie in it's entirety. If it makes you feel any better I've never read the book.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I'm kind of a cheap bastard on most things, so it's really hard for me to say $100+ is worth it. This is what I will say. You will never get anything 32 years for that price. The complexity in it and the uniqueness of the dram makes it worth it to me. Do I have $60-80 bottles that I like better, yes. But would I pay $100 for it again? 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.

    Rainy night here turning to sleet & ice soon. ...they say ice storm is imminent. So, I may have to depend on the bunker for a few days. For now, it seemed like a night to go back to the briny, sea salty Rocks of Bruichladdich. Next trip making the rounds, I may have to grab another one of these before they disappear.

    Balvenie 10 Founders Reserve last night. Still got another in the bunker but may pick up the Double Wood today to replace the one we finished last week.

    Started last with a recently opened Springbank 10/100 - this stuff is the bees knees. I haven't had one open for quite awhile and I forgot how dirty it is, but so well balanced with supple, creamy malt and fresh lemon zest. The dirty aspect brings a certain tarry, peppery funk that shows so well on the clean malt profile.

    Also opened a 12yo Springbank bottled by Hart Bros at 46%. Distilled June 1993, bottled September 2005. It's not as rich, not as extreme in its directions as the 10/100 - less dirt more lemon. Funny, I picked this up the other week for $48 and later saw the same bottle on another shelf for $102. I think I'll go back and grab that other $48 bottle...

    Finished up with some Caol Ila Sauternes finished, very pleasing as usual.

    Is this the Chieftain's 1996 13yo bottling?
