More expensive than it should be but I've missed out on sherried Clynelish in the past and at 19 years this would seem to be well-aged. I have to hand it to Blackadder for squeezing every penny they can out of their casks, but I can also say that everything I've had of theirs has been top notch.

    So, that Clynelish is going to be open this weekend, right?

    I'm taking a bit of a gamble with this, but Serge seems to regard older Ardmores extremely highly, and has rated either this or its sister cask highly. I figure it's peated whisky from the late 1970s from a heavily blended distillery . . . Pretty good bet. The non-whiskyfun reviews I was able to find refer to it as "Caol Ila-like" in character, so I'm tentatively hopeful I didn't just waste my money.
    Well, rats. The store contacted me to let me know they had "lost" the bottle in their recent move and had to cancel my order. Anyone want to bet they checked wine-searcher and discovered it was going for like $400 elsewhere? I'll check back on the site a few more times and see if it magically goes up in price (and comes back in stock).

    In other annoying news, I never was contacted by that bottle shop to come pick up my Ardbeg Supernova. I know other stores have gotten it locally, so I may still buy a bottle. The hesitance here is that I know of a few mid-late teens Springbanks that are languishing, totally unloved. Specifically, 15, 16, and 17 yr old cask strength stuff. Sure, those aren't the same thing as teh super rare Ardbeg or old school Ardmore, but I am thinking they might be just the cure for what ails me . . .

    Good whiskey always cures what ails you.

    Laphroaig Cairdeas 2014 finally arrived and I got the last bottle on the shelf. Should be more showing up soon.

    Ordered the new Supernova and a Benriach Solstice this morning. Should be delivered Monday or Tuesday.

Can't wait to see what good Scottish grain whisky tastes like.
    That North British is very tasty stuff for the price; sweet and creamy. I'll look forward to your report! I hope the Clynelish DE goes over better for you than it did for me...
