    Have you tried 5160?

    Still sealed. With great pours like that, I tend to open them when I have someone I want to share it with. Are they pretty similar. I won't be able to do a SBS because I left the sample with him to further his malt education, but the flavor will definitely be in my memory.

    Has anyone tried the new Mortlachs? I saw the Rare Old in the fancy glass case they designed the new bottle for, but $130? NAS? What a shame.

    No, but for my birthday earlier this week, I splurged on a Signatory (Binny's) Mortlach 21 CS (1990) for $100. Excellent first pour and I expect it to only improve as it gets to breath a bit.

    Kind of hard for me to imagine the new NAS being so magical as to justify that sort of price...

    I looked for them in Amsterdam recently but no luck. Price is indeed excessive, although as Joe notes, the bottle is danged purdy, I just wanted to try one for myself. Alas, no luck.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
