    Hank, I suspect the Green Spot did not come from Binney's

    You're right about that. I have my "mule" bring me a couple of bottles whenever he's on business in Dublin and then I drink it slowly to make it last.

    Last night I had some friends over and one was a scotch newbie. I treated him to Caol Ila 12, Bruichladdich Port Charlotte an turas mor, Lagavulin 16, Bowmore Tempest, and lastly, Lagavulin 12 CS. Very nice night.
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    So would you recommend that Port Charlotte?

    While I do enjoy it in the rotation, I would say it's a bit overpriced. I'd pass on another bottle.

    Crown Royal Black with a single ice cube. This whisky is immensely improved by the slight chilling and dilution.

    A nice pour of Scapa 14 along with a Scotch ale from Michigan's Arcadia Brewery.

    Laphroiag Murray McDavid from Chateau Lafite casks... amazing! Going away present from my coworkers. Needless to say, I love them even more now.

    I had only tried normal Laphroiag 10 before, which I had also liked. This one seems to have as much smoke as the 10, but it just tastes more balanced. Not "smoother," though it does go down a bit easier, it's just that the other flavors come out better to give more support to the smoke, I guess. The differences come, presumably, from it being non-chill-filtered and the Lafite casks, as it's also 10 years old and also starts out in bourbon barrels.

    It's probably the best scotch I've ever had, though it is also the most expensive!
