    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    If you can order from Schneider's on Capitol Hill (www.cellar.com), it's only $60.

    I had my first pour of Redbreast 12 cask strength, and had I been wearing socks, they would have been knocked off. I'm already a little sad that this bottle is going to be eventually empty and I've just started it. I'd put this up with the best whiskeys I've had, be it bourbon, rye, scotch, or irish. Its creamy, then fruity, then lightly oaky - and all as clean and crisp as an Irish priest's collar on Sunday morning.

    I capped last night off with the Redbreast CS and I agree with Jeff it blows me away every time.I love the fruit,and it is a crisp and vibrant as you can get the proof doesn't hurt either.

    Dalmore Cigar Malt and a Laphroaig 1/4 Cask while the wife was at a baby shower,odd combination but quite rewarding.

    I figured I would like it, but I didn't think I would like it as much as I do.

    Laphroaig 18. This definitely is the most bourbon-friendly Islay scotch. It's plenty sooty and ashy, which is different from smoky and is compatible with barrel char, and it has a nice sweet bourbon barrel influence. Gone is the coconut and most of the iodine of the regular 10 year. I like Laphroaigs the least of the big 3 - Lagavulin and Ardbeg are the others I count - but this one is my favorite from the distillery and a repeat purchase. I think of it as a "foody" scotch. I like that Islays remind me of environments instead of edibles, while bourbons always remind me of food, so I was surprised that this fairly approachable whisky, so reminiscent of smokey food dishs, hit me the right way.

    Aberlour 12-year. It's like getting the Balvenie 12-year Signature, for $25 less. Ample bourbon and sherry notes, with a hearty, healthy, voluptuous body. I don't really care much for Glenlivet, its sister distillery-- but this one is a real "sleeper!"
