    Naked is probably a good descriptor. I've had anCnoc 12 and it is strange stuff. Very soft and sweet on the nose, but hard as rocks in the mouth. I drank the whole bottle and still couldn't say whether I liked it or not.

    Well I haven't tried the 12 y/o so I can't compare but a few people have recommended the 16 to me over the 12. At any rate, it reminds me a little of newer Springbanks, without the leafiness and flint.

    Stopped by my brother in law's house last evening and he poured me a small dram of Johnny Walker Double Black. I'm not big on peat/smoke and this particular label has quite a bit (at least to my palate). Not a fan.

    I tried my first Amrut Fusion Monday night when sampling Willett for VBT#308. After the grassiness of the Willett, I thought scotch (er, single malt whiskey) might follow.

    I was surprised at the amount of peatiness from the Scottish malt (not "subtle" to my bourbon palate) but found it to be a very complex and enjoyable dram. I may seek out a bottle for the collection.

    On the subject of world whiskies, I got to try Yoichi 10 year old from the Nikka distillery in Japan. Fantastic! Sweet, floral, fruity, and rich, with distinct peatiness. It reminded me of a sweeter, richer Talisker. The stuff is expensive around here, same price as Lagavulin 16, but worth it in my opinion.

    I poured an ounce of Buffalo Trace into the glass that held last night's Kilchoman. I neglected to wash the glass, and what I've got is a bourbon with an incredibly smoky nose.

    Fished out an old bottle of Chivas Regal Rare Old 18 yo. I've only seen this one bottle. The bottle is serial numbered, GH5839L. Don't know much about this version other than it is much better than the usual CR Gold Signature. It is very smooth and honeyed with a nice malted cereal taste and a slight cinnamon spiciness.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.
