Johnny Walker Green Label. Such a nice pleasant pour, sweet, honey, full flavored malt. Need to pick up a couple of more bottles before its all gone.
I was tempted by a bottle of Green at the store yesterday, actually paused and started to reach for it, but I've been there and it's time to move on.
Opened a new bottle of The Irishman (70) last night. This stuff is hard to beat for the price and, along with Powers Gold, may be my favorite Irish whiskey in the $25 and under category.
Tried the Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix last night at a bar that had it by the pour. I don't drink a lot of scotch, so I'm no expert, but I found it above average, though perhaps not worthy of the raves it has gotten from the two people I know that actually have bottles. It wasn't as good as the Tomatin 25 or the Tomatin Decades, IMO.
My Humble Apolgies! I posted about a bourbon on this thread without realizing I'd stumbled into an entirely different realm of whisky. Mea Culpa for my foolishness! ...But, anybody that knows me will attest there are very, very few folks who can still breathe that are worse with a computer than I am. Again so sorry for the intrusion!

Costco 15 yo by MacCallan. My scotch pallette is untrained. I taste saltwater and enjoy it.

On Saturday, I revisited the only bottle I've ever had that I deemed undrinkable -- Ledaig 10. When it was given to me in 2011, I took one drink and nearly threw it away. My memory was that it tasted like bandaids. I should say that between 2011 and now, I've learned to like peated whiskey, so I decided to pull it out of the back of the cabinet and try it again. I stand by my previous impression that it tasted like bandaids (medicinal), but that is no longer such a terrible thing. I'm not saying it's the best bottle I've got, but I'll be able to finish it, for sure. Funny how our tastes chance, isn't it?
