Funny... now all of a sudden its not such a tough work week.

    Sometimes you get a treat from a friend. I had A Glendronach 26 year old from '74, and some Dalmore . 26year old Stillmans dram. Both were fantastic. The Glen was bourbon wood, while the Dalmore was a lush sherry finish. The thing about nice scotch....It's delicious and mellow. Lot's of depth in both, but the sherry in the Dalmore was perfect. None of that rubber, none of that super sweet taste, just perfect. What a treat.

    Actually the 26 yo Dalmore Stillman's Dram was the second release. The first was a 30 yo that had two things going against it. First it was much more popular than anticipated and second they didn't have enough to make another run, thus the 26 yo. There have also been 28 and 29 yo Dalmore Stillman's Dram releases but not another 30 yet.

    Well the 26 was awesome. I wish they'd put out some cask strength versions.

    The whole Stillman's Dram line was done by Whyte & Mackay so that is who you should ask about cask strength versions.

    A big non-thank you to the "nose"? Please Richard...we can handle cask, or at least non-chill.

    At least Paterson did release some good versions of things you usually don't see at age. Tamnavulin, Tullibardine, Jura, Ben Wyvis and others.

    I didn't work the next day so that helped . My friend really enjoyed the smoke and peat of the Islays and plans to expand his own collection asap.

    btw - How's that Laphroaig CS? I have a Lagavulin 12 CS on order and can't wait to try it.
