    I believe it was your NOH that started me down the rabbit trail/hunt for this bottle of 1981 ;-)

    '81 'zawa is a nice score. The color of that whisky matches the wooden stopper!

    Bought a bottle of The Black Grouse last night because Utah has delisted it and is blowing it out. My initial impressions were pretty positive, it was well worth the $15 I paid.

    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Meeting John Glaser at Federal Wines and Spirits a few weeks ago was a great time, and I had a friend heading down to Manhattan, so a bottle of Great King Street "New York Blend" made its way to me. It's getting cellared until I have fewer bottles open in the cabinet bar.

    I went back and forth on this, especially drinking it next to the Flaming Heart, which is quite a bit more nuanced. I just drank the last of my NY Blend last night, and am convinced I need another bottle.

    Signatory 1999 Glen Rothes, new to the brand and to the distiller. Very drinkable though.
