    Jack, have you tried the new Doublewood 17 year? Saw it this weekend and almost pulled the trigger but at $120, I figured I'd wait and see what others had to say before trying it.

    Started with a small pour of Ardbeg Gaileo and then moved onto some Lagavulin Distillers Edition 1995. The Lag DE was perfect tonight as I was in the mood for muted peat and a touch of that raisiny PX sherry sweetness.

    I feel like Irish, tonight. Redbreast 12 Cask Strength. This whiskey is so good, it almost makes me cry...

    That should cover it...

    Just opened an Abelour A'bunadh ... not sure what to think yet - a bit one-dimensional and spirity - not what I expected. Enjoyable - but will withhold judgment until I spend a bit more time with it.

    Yeah, you need to hold off. It's hot - high proof and all - but the flavor this expression packs is massive. It's far from one-dimensional, IMHO. Always a winner for me...

    Yes. Give it time. You may come to love this one, as I did. But then I'm an Aberlour fanatic, so I enjoyed mine from the very first sip.

    Batch #?
    As pointed out above, give the open bottle a few days - maybe a week or two. The next time you try it add a couple of drops of water ...

    Batch #35, 60.3% abv - I did try with and without water (perhaps too much) - don't get me wrong, it was v.good, but for some reason it seemed younger than I was expecting - granted, this was right after opening the bottle. I just think it needs more time to open up a bit.
