    Some Clynelish 14 OB, which I really enjoy, and cracked open a Longmorn 15 OB. Cork broke, but found a replacement. Nose is a little funky right now - may just be fruitiness, the palate is very nice, sweet fruit.

    Yamazaki 12 again. I poured the last of my bottle into a smaller bottle and brought it along the trip with me so thats been my dram the last few nights. I have a few bottles I bought down here but I really don't want to open them before I get back home. Oh well, the Yamazaki is quite good.

    Thoughts? I have not cracked mine yet but I really like the 14 year Caribbean cask.

    Not as easy as you think, that bottle is currently something like a thousand miles away ;-)

    I like it. It's not my favorite 17 expression but I like it more than the Carribean Cask and Duty Free Golden Casks.

I'm no stranger to CS whisk(e)y and any sort of numbness is very atypical, in fact I think it's only happened twice before. Don't get me wrong, the nose is simply amazing, I could just sit here with my nose in this glencarin glass for hours (breathing through my mouth of course, way too strong for just nose). So much vanilla and wood present in the nose, it combines wonderfully.

    I'll give this a try again when I'm back from my trip in a couple of weeks, hopefully I'm just having an off night. After all, I did drink a Pepsi and have some steak right before trying this so that could easily be affecting my palate.
    Have you had the Power's John's Lane 12y? Fantastic Irish juice! Love that one. You might give it a try over the RB CS. I don't like a ton of wood or oak either (although I don't personally get that from RB CS and enjoy it). But the Power's is all sugar cookies and icing. Vanilla wafers and just a great example of a pure pot still Irish character.

    Speaking of Irish, I revisited my bottle of RB 15 that has been open for over a year now and found it fantastic! I was underwhelmed by it when I first opened it, but the sherry influence is really hitting my sweet spot now. I think I like it better than both the 12yo CS and the Powers Johns Lane, both of which I enjoy with the RBCS still edging out the PJL for me. Never had them SBS, though, so I sill consider the jury out.
