    I've got an unopened Nadurra grinning at me right now. But so far tonight it's been switching back and forth between Glenlivet French Oak and Woodford Reserve Seasoned Oak.

    Right now, I'm drinking Glenmorangie 10, bourbon cask. This is the first time I've tasted anything from this distillery. I must say that it is a very enjoyable Scotch... kind of light, with a taste of vanilla and honey. The nose is very nice... almost as enjoyable as the taste. I'll need to get a few more expressions from this distillery.

    I assume thats is the 15 year old. I loved the Glenlivit Fr.O 12 and the 15 is high on my list of Speysiders to try.

    The Quinta Ruban is an interesting expression. Surprisingly dry and salty at first, but developing on chocolate-fruit notes.

    Glenmorangie is always a good choice.

    yep, 15yo. I like it, it's a little different. I like the bit of "twang" from the wood. Though some people think Limousin is an inferior oak for barrels, Remy Martin likes it for some of their high end stuff. I'm sipping it again tonight.

    Starting the night with Islay Mist 8 year old. Not bad at all. The bottle describes it as a "soft" whisky, and I would agree. You get salt and smoky peat but a good amount of honey as well. The texture is quite "blendy", that is to say, a bit thin with a grainy bite, but it has more body than, say, Teachers. Pretty decent overall but for this style of blend I would go for The Black Grouse. More depth and complexity.

    ub, try the Laphroaig Cask Strength sometime. It's two more heads and four more shoulders above the Quarter Cask. It's ... uh ... narcotic. Sorry, that's as close as I can get to a description.
    Peace, ... and Hippy Love.

    Will do, Edo. It is now officially on my Christmas list. Hard to imagine whisky so good, isn't it? But Laphroaig is doing an excellent job these days and I can't get enough of their stuff. All I need to do now is find any easy bank to knock off so that I can afford everything I want!
