    The new 14 year old is out in Ontario. I reckon it is nice stuff. For a few dollars less there is also a single sherry cask, aged 12 years. Seems like a pretty good deal but I'm hesitant due to the risk of sulphur. I've had a few dodgy bottles and now I'm distrustful of sherry.

    Last night I put a splash of Kilchoman in a glass of Arran and it was a wonderful marriage.

    Beautiful night in northern Illinois, enjoying Laphroaig 10 and a Macanudo Cru Royale on the back porch. Great way to end the work week

    Really enjoying my second pour of Ardmore Traditional Cask. Nice sweet peat and spice. Like a poor mans Talisker. Peated, non-chill filtered, 92 proof, what's not to like?
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    Right now, a nice pour of Glenfarclas 105, ... that's 105 British proof, or 60% alc/vol. ... sheeze, at least Kentucky proof makes sense, ... as much as the metric system ... which happily reminds me, this is a liter bottle ... and not one of those piddly ass 700ml euro-bottles. Now, how can a continent (and off shore whisky-producing islands) that has enough sense to adopt the metric system sell whisky in anything but 1 liter bottles?

    Every time I pick up a 700 ml bottle, it feels like I used to feel when someone would hand me one of those Miller ponies. (They still make those?) What's the point? ... c'mon Scotsmen, you charge enough, kick in at least that extra 50 ml pour. (Talisker does!, sometimes Highland Park, Cragganmore and Caol Ila, too.)

    Anyway, this one is a big, chewy bourbony molasses/maple syrupy, grassy 10 year old. I cut it back to about 45-50%, as y'all know, that's 90-100 US proof, but it will take someone with math skills beyond mine to figure the British proof without a calculator.
    Peace, ... and Hippy Love.

    At least the British proof system actually means something!
