    have only opened the Ardmore so far
    Its interesting that you are able to get hold of a Ardbeg Corryvreckan as they dont ship overseas. How did you get hold of a bottle?

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    My two sons visited two weeks ago and the oldest is a single malt enthusiast. I then purchase the ff from Specs:

    Ardbeg 10
    Clynelish 18
    Talisker 18
    Benriarch Curiositas
    Arran 18
    Aberlour Abunad

    My favorite of the lot is the Benriarch. I then bought a Lag and a Laph QC for him to take home.

    Huh?

    a'bunadh - at least every bottle I've seen - is NAS.

    Aberlour has a 12yo and 16yo, fairly well-distributed (can get them here in OR anyway), but these are not labelled "a'bunadh". Another significant difference is that the 12 and 16 are aged in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-bourbon casks, and the a'bunadh is 100% ex-sherry.

    Aberlour makes a 15yo that's 100% sherry-cask aged. I may buy one at some point.

    You are right, its only Aberlour 16 yrs old not the Aberlour A'bunadth. I am curious as to how the combination sherry and bourbon mixes.

    It has not arrived, the Renaissance will be delayed another week due to no stock.
