    Re: A look back

    For most of us, ALL of them are drinking bottles -- just not all at the same time, and some sooner than others.

    Re: What\'s on your shelves for drinking/collecting

    Hey I noticed some Black Bottle back there, is it good enough to search out? I've heard it come into the states but have yet to manage to run across a bottle.

    Re: What\'s on your shelves for drinking/collecting

    That is a UK version of Black Bottle 10 and if you are an Islay fan it is one of the big three vatted malts to get. The others are Peat Monster and Big Smoke. While you can't get Big Smoke in the states, or if you can I can't find anything on it, the other two are fairly easy to find in the US. So to answer your question, yes I think it is worth it.

    Re: What\'s on your shelves for drinking/collecting

    Thanks, I've been wondering about that one for a while. My scotch budget is inversely proportional to my bourbon budget and therefore it seems to be quite a stretch to afford the good Bowmores and Lagavulins I like.

    Hi Barturtle,

    I hear you there. Compounded by the fact that good scotch is expensive. I have never had a bottle of Lagavulin even though I really like it. Every time I have considered a purchase I have gone home with two or there bottles of bourbon instead.

    Hi AVB,
    I have been eyeing a Black Bottle for a long time. I will have to pick it up one day soon.

    Hi - I don't want to split hairs (and I could be wrong), but I think Black Bottle is a blend rather than a vatted malt. It contains malt from the distilleries of Islay with some grain too. Very nice indeed.

    No you are correct, my mistake on the Black Bottle. Still good stuff no matter what.
