    Given that blends contain upwards of 40 or more different whiskies from different distilleries (malt and grain), I'm not sure how anyone can detect any "distillery character".

    Ardbeg Day eh... Love getting the Fritos smell wafting up when I rub a few drops between my palms & sets my anticipation alight for my dram.

    After an unfortunately scheduled argument with the wife I've enjoyed some Glenfiddich 15. A lot of 'fiddich 15. Time to post in the empty bottle thread.

    Don't ever buy/sell a home. Ever.

    Finally cracked open the Barry Crockett Legacy last night with a friend. It is some truly delightful whiskey! Might have to keep the rest of it for myself...

    Then for a little contrast we finished off with some Talisker 18 as my friend wanted to see if he should get a bottle before the price jumps. Looks like I made a sale!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Felt like going to the lighter side last night with a nice Irish. I went with a bold pour of Redbreast 12 CS the fruit and vibrance in this whisky never disappoint on any level!

    A touch of McIvor blended Scotch earlier, no particular reason, it was on sale.

    Just got home from a belated Valentines dinner with the wife and decided to open my Compass Box Flaming Heart 4th Ed. All I can say is . . . HELL. YES. I will be out tomorrow looking for another.

    Having my first go at THE BEIST. Delicious. Plenty complex, full of fruit with a well balanced smoke, but lighter, tamer than I would expect given the name. That's not a knock, just unexpected. For those in the know, how much of a difference is there between the different years? This is an 07 bottling, btw.

    Flaming Heart 4 is just...perfect. I know that's a taboo statement in the whisky world, and I understand why, but this dram is delicious and drinkable at the highest level. Excellent.

    I'm knocking back a Macallan CS. It's hard to pick a favorite sherry bomb between this, A'bunadh and Glenfarclas 105. The best is obviously the one in front of me at the moment.
