    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    Bought the revised Dalmore 12. I can definitely taste more Sherry influence this time around than I could the previous 12-year bottling. Not only that, but it definitely tastes like a higher-quality sherry cask, like what one would find in the Macallan, the Glenfarclas, and the Sherry-finished Glenmorangie malts.

    Whereas some "sherry-matured" scotches only have a vague nuttiness to show for it, this one has the rich tastes of raisins, pistachios, and dates.

    The PLCB definitely needs to carry more Dalmore!!!!!

    How are the rest of the Dalmore bottlings? Their bottles look so damn cool I always think of buying one just to have it in the liquor cabinet.

    I would absolutely LOVE to tell you about the rest of the Dalmore lineup-- but the basic 12-year is the only one I can get in this state.

    I definitely want to try that King Alexander-- 6 different types of maturation casks!!!!!

    Very good whiskey IMO and terrific value at its price point. Everyone who tries it at my house is surprised at just how good it is.

    As soon as I opened my bottle I knew it would be a winner. It is different from most Scotches, very sweet and flowery, also doughy. Peculiar, but very, very nice.

    Lagivulin 12 cask strength. Opened and tried last night with a Fuente WOAM! This 12 year old at 57.9% ABV gives the 16 yr a run for its money, as long as you do not follow the directions on the back of the bottle (to be poured 1 part Lagi to 2 parts water.)WTF?

    Great pairing!

    Picked up 2 bottles of Binny's new cask strength bottling from Kilchoman. Up front it has all the youthfulness and iodine of the regular release, but it finishes with a great rush of peat that I did not get on the standard. The added proof really adds something to this young one too.

    That's almost as good as the tasting tips that used to be on the Highland Park website. "Don't pay too much attention to the colour of the whisky, unless it is cloudy, in which case you should pour it away."
