    Having some Arran Malt Tokaji Aszu finish at full strength. Wow...starts off syrupy-sweet, and then explodes in the mouth with a burst of intense spice and more tropical fruit. Fruity sweetness persists in the finish with an oaky edge.

    My God, Alberta Premium 25yr is smooth as water after the cask-strength Arran Malt! I could chug this right from the bottle, though I'd probably end up in the hospital.

    Never heard of it. What's it like?

    Tonight it's Clynelish 14, Talisker 10, and now Ardberg 10.

    To my palate it is pure velvet. The taste is vanilla laced with caramel and chocolate, with a hard spicy edge of rye and oak. Beautiful, well-integrated flavours. Smooth with a subtle sweetness. A different kind of Canadian whisky, and an unprecedented value. Jim Murray rated this the Best Canadian Whisky in his 2008 Whisky Bible, or so I hear.

    Now I'm ending the night with a Talisker 18.

    Right now I am enjoying a bottle of McClellands LowLand Single Malt and liking it very much the Pa state stores just like Bourbon do not have near enough good Scotchs but I had never had this one it was on sale and I find it to be Fresh to the Palate with a sort of Gingery flavor and a very smooth Dry Gingery finish it is a nice buy for the Price and I will get more of this when it is gone!

    Bought my first Talisker today to go add to my vast single malt collection that now consists of 4 bottles, hehe . (My wife wishes I only had 4 bottles of bourbon!). Heard a lot about this one. Should be quite different than the Balvenie Doublewood, Balvenie 21 yo Portwood and Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or that I have. Looking forward to this one and just enjoying the journey.

    A great introduction to the smoky coastal style. I take it you bought the 10 year old? It's fantastic stuff.

    Having a pre-dinner dram of Glenkinchie 1992 Distillers Edition. Fabulous and unique.
