    Great pairing!

    Had some as well last night. Very tasty indeed and no need whatsoever for water, although a dash wouldn't hurt it too much I suppose. I also laughed at the "instructions" on the back.

    Picked up a forty of Grant's Family Reserve on sale. Mixing it with ginger ale and cranberry cocktail. Quite nice!

    Santa was good to me this year: I got Crown Royal Deluxe, Aberlour 16 year old, and Crown Royal Cask No. 16.

    Re: Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I just bought my Christmas present. A bottle of The Balvenie 21 portwood.

    It was a toss-up between that and The Macallan 18. Can't say why I chose one over the other...a mental coin-flip I guess. I was reasonably sure I'd be okay either way.

    Let me know how that is. I was hoping to try the unpeated variety but it hasn't come around these parts.

    Decided to changes things up and went with the Auchentoshan 12. What a delightful surprise. This is a really fine Lowland whisky, with a wonderful honeyed nose and just enough pepper in the finish to make you reach for more. I'm impressed!

    I really like it. I find it sweeter than a typical peated Islay malt but it works very nicely. Also of interest is it is a young whisky (~6 yrs old). Apparently the location of the distillery (Bangalore) experiences intense temperature extremes, leading to a "faster " aging. It's also non-chill filtered, has no caramel color added, and bottled at 46% which is all good in my books. It's my first Amrut and certainly not my last.

    Macallan 18 for $120. Family member was in Caribbean and grabbed a bottle for me. Not a great price but a little better than stateside.
