    Dig that Longmorn. It's gotten better with a little air.

    Picked up an anCnoc 12 and I'm really pleased with it: has that light, sweet-ish Speyside-like character, but has a fair bit of complexity, too. A little bit bitter (in a good way) in the finish. The price is right, too: $34 + tax.

    Glenmorangie Companta for $80, but won't crack it for a while.

    That's a great price! I've stopped myself from getting the Companta because I know it would lead to getting the Ealanta, Finnealta, Artein, etc.

    They're all really different. So, if you like one it won't mean that you'll like the others are. Glenmo makes great stuff, but the Ealanta and Companta couldn't be more different. The Companta is a more dry version of Quinta Ruban more than anything. It opens up with air and in nuanced throughout. Ealanta is bright and bourbon-like for a 19 year malt. The Glenmorangie does a great job changing it up from year to year.

    I was searching for liquor stores on my GPS since I was in an area I hadn't shopped in before. I was heading to a particular store when I saw another that hadn't registered on the Nav. It was a run down place, but not bullet proof glass bad. Holy crap! Great selection of scotch. I didn't look too thoroughly because I spotted my purchases right away. 4 1989 Mac 18's at 2007 prices. I've read rave reviews of the '89 and couldn't believe they've been sitting on the shelf for 7 years considering that Mac 18 usually sells everywhere. I'll be going back for a Yamakazi 18 for $109. This could be my new honey hole. Never made it to the other store.

    I have to get through a few opens first, but I'll be opening a new release Mac 18 along side the 1989 in the fall. There's no other way to compare - I'll let you know.

    Laphroaig 10. It was a couple bucks cheaper than usual and I felt bad about not having a bottle so it came home. My wife even knew what it was because I showed her the seagull's armpit video.
