    Octomore 6.1 in anticipation of a GBS Scotch night next week. Thinking we should save this one for the end so we don't fry our palates.

    Went looking for ETL Commerative Bottle and stumbled upon a couple of gems from a few years ago.

    I need to open my Sherry Oak. I'm just scared that it won't live up to my expectation of what a sherry + Balvenie 17 will taste. That seems like it would be perfection.

    And I'm officially jealous. The Sherry Oak is one of my most sought after bottles, you didn't happen to leave any on the shelf by chance, did you?

    I almost cracked one last night, but didn't. I couldn't believe it when I saw the bottle front and center in a case I've looked at probably over 15 times. I generally visit this particular store when visiting my nieces/nephews a few suburbs from where I live. The case is poorly lit and overcrowded. I asked the owner if he somehow just got them in or if it was new release. He said its been in the case since 2007 but buried so deep in the case that it really couldn't even be seen. They happened to rearrange it recently and put the Sherry Oak in front. It worked because that was and no-brainer purchase on my part.

    After doing some online research on my new Balvenie 17 Sherry Wood purchases, I found out that the standard Balvenie 15 SB (aged in American oak) is being discontinued and will be replaced by a 15 year SB aged exclusively in sherry butts. This is an interesting development especially since the standard 15 SB has been around so long as a staple in their lineup. Some UK retailers are already listing the new version for sale. Not sure when its coming to the US market.

    Picked up a Glendronach 12 this past weekend. This hasn't been on my radar until recently so I was excited to find a bottle and bring it home.

    Powers John Lane 12 year. Very tasty and a nice change from from all my bourbon drinking. And my wife loved it, which means I get to buy more without being harassed!
