    I'm up in Canada and I picked up a Compass Box Peat Monster for the first time. Just cracked it open and find it rather good.

    ...make that very good!

    Yeah, it's nice. Price went down almost $10 recently, too. It is a vatting of Caol Ila and Ardmore, if I'm not mistaken.

    Yes, Caol Ila, Ardmore, and now some Laphroaig added too if I'm not mistaken. I paid $58 CDN, I hope the price stays there.

    It is. And damned tasty for those of us who like that sort of thing. But I won't recommend it to all and sundry..it's already hard to find around here.
    Here's to us, who's like us?
    Damned few and they're all dead

    while traveling farther east along the Florida panhandle than usual, I found Yamazaki 12yo at $29.99. One bottle came home with me. I never expected to find this Japanese whisky within driving distance. Easy sales pitch for the wife: "oooohh, remember in Lost in Translation when Bill Murray's character goes to Japan to shoot a commercial for Suntory Whisky?"

    Excellent stuff, that. Nice sales pitch, too.

    I picked up some Alberta Premium as a backup bottle for my camping trip. Very good stuff in its own right. Now my camping lineup consists of:

    Alberta Premium Canadian rye
    Cutty Sark blended Scotch
    Corner Creek Reserve bourbon
    1997 Dalmore
    1997 Caol Ila

    I haven't tried the Quarter Cask yet, but I'll put that next on the list to pick up a bottle in the future. I really enjoyed the Cask Strength last night, and it definitely lived up to the expectations that had been set for it.
    Never ask a man if he is from Virginia. If he is, he'll tell you. If he isn't, you don't want to embarass him.

    rather than start a new thread, I'll just ask here.
    anyone see Isle of Jura Prophecy on the shelves yet?

    Binny's had some tastings last week, so I figure it's close.
    It was my group's favorite at WhiskeyFest. Can't wait.
