    Re: Foreign Whisky of the Month - 11/2013: Caol Ila

    I purchased a 12 year, I am fairly new to scotch and haven't really acquired a taste for peat (its an acquired thing, right?) but can tell that there is a good foundation to this whiskey, and now I have something to offer friends who like peat, since I mostly have highland and speyside's in my bar.

    Dolt? Hardly... But in general, I've learned so much from SB in the short time I've been hanging out here - I learn something new just about everyday it seems.

    Also, thanks to the SBr's who were generous in sharing knowledge & samples that helped me gain a better understanding of FWOTM's, BOTM's (and other whiskies) to inform my palate of what it is I like/dislike in my glass.

    That whole series is brilliant. It's a pity we don't have anything like it for American whiskey, though pity is a strong word, and I consider it more of an opportunity...

    I'll bring a lighting kit to Bardstown in April and we can film you pronouncing everything you want.
