    I picked up the OB Clynelish 14 the other week from the Montgomery County liquor stores on sale for $38 - who said scotch couldn't be a value proposition (I also picked up a Uigeadail for 54, just above the K&L price). I am very pleased with the bottle - need to revisit now that it is cold and blustery around here!

    Agreed, especially when you start to look at some of the cool IBs. With American whiskey prices going the way they are (e.g Angel's Envy Cask Strength, Boss Hog, Lock Stock & Barrel, Michter's, Pappy on the black market, etc), Scotch QPR seems to make a lot more sense.

    Agreed, I will help with the consumption of the old Clynelish even though it will be a hardship. Thats what friends are for.

    Foreign Whisky of the Month - 10/2013: Clynelish

    So we pulled some bottles together & I finally got a chance to try some '70s Brora and although there is some family resemblance to the Clynelish 14, the differences are dramatic - suffice to say the Brora wasn't shabby...
