    After drinking alot of bourbon, the smoke of Ballantines was really pronounced. It surprised me.

    I've come to the conclusion that if I'm going to spend the money for a single malt Scotch it's going to be an Islay. Otherwise, it's going to be a blend for me. The one exception is the northern highland Dalwhinnie 15 that I would buy for a special occasion.

    Was just about to say:

    I did my taxes today and $700 magical dollars more than I expected appeared out of seemingly nowhere. I celebrated this immediately by picking up a bottle of Laphroaig, my favorite scotch. Unfortunately only the 10 year, since I had to pick up a new bottle of my first love (bourbon) and keep it under an even buck.

    Starting the evening with Glenlivet Nadurra. Just the right proof (~120) to knock this cold out of me.

    Attended a Rosebank tasting last night. 9 different bottles, with the winner being a 25 year old Flor & Fauna. Suprising to me, was that these triple distilled lowlanders were quite complex, and very very good. Just a wonderful old distillery lost to Diageo. They're ( not Diageo..but the new owners) ,are turning the old place into Condo's. So lame. Followed that up with a 6 year old Laphroaig that was fantastic, and a new batch of Wasmunds. I have not cared for Wasmunds at all, but this lateset batch..25, is really starting to show promise. Batch 5...not so much.

    Just cracked a MacCelland Islay - produced by Bowmore
    Its kind of like a 2nd barrell or lower tier to the top level Bowmore - but good stuff.
    Best part its 1/2 the price so great price to value/quality.
    I love Bowmore and always have a bottle on hand but like most single malts - getting awfully pricey.
