    I've meet John a couple of times at tasting events in Houston; great guy and some great whiskies.

    Re: The General and New GBS Member, John Glaser

    Cool experience! I bought a bottle of Spice Tree back when I was really getting into whiskey and bourbon last year and it didn't do much for me at first. I revisited it recently and really really enjoyed it - I guess my palate has developed. These guys have my respect for sure.
    Glad to hear that the man at the helm is a super cool guy - makes me like it more.

    I may or may not be coming thru the ATLarge in early May. It would be swell to swing by with some Kavalan and aged Wild Turkey.

    No peat that I could detect.

    Re: The General and New GBS Member, John Glaser

    I'm closing in on trading for a bottle, sounds like it's worth it just to try something different.

    I'm very jealous of the time you guys had there, nothing like talking shop with an expert!

    Nor I.

    I could always check again since I may have acquired a bottle that somebody else changed their mind on...

    I also don't recall any peat, but that finish . . . holy @#$% that has the longest finish I've ever experienced (although I've not tasted a lot of really old whisky).
