    Fell in love with Glendronach 15 recently, so I've been exploring other sherried malts. Grabbed a Edradour Caledonia last weekend based on a recent suggestion. Probably grab a Glenfarclas 105 and Glendronach 12 next.

    Picked up a Redbreast 15 yr for $71 + tax. Damn good price I thought.

    That is an outstanding price. Well done, sir. It's around $30 more than that in Maryland.

    I popped my Glenfarclas 105 last week and I love it. So much more character than Glendronach 15 IMO. Give yourself a real treat and pick up a Kavalan CS sherry cask!

    I picked this up off the shelf at a small spot downtown Boston a couple days ago. I could not believe my eyes when I saw it...

    Absolutely incredible find ... that bottle sat on the shelves for some six years, destined to end up in your grasp. Enjoy it!

    Congrats on the find! I've passed on two separate Port Ellen IBs (both 27 years old) due to the low strength (46% abv) compared to high price. I'm actually torn on this issue right now: For reasons I will probably announce later, I want to obtain an older bottle of Islay whisky. K&L is taking pre-orders on their store select 1983 Caol Ila, which is at cask strength and comes at the recommendation of K&L (a great indicator of quality). 1983 also happens to be my birth year, so that is pretty neat. On the other hand, I could spend $100 more and buy an IB of Port Ellen at 46% abv, also distilled in 1983. I can't find any reviews of this particular bottling of Port Ellen, so I have quality concerns. I think I'm going to go with the K&L Caol Ila vs spending more money for a release of unknown quality just to get the notoriety of the dead distillery.

    Any thoughts from other scotch fans?
