    This is not today, but... was running around the gettos of Detroit last month and stopped by a store and picked up this gem. Does anybody know when the bottle change happened? I believe is was mid 1990's?

    Can't answer your question but very cool pick-up of one of my all-time favorite single malts. Have you cracked it open yet? I'd be curious to hear your opinion on how it stacks up against current bottlings of HP12.

    Not yet. Already have a bottle of HP12 open, along with way too many other SM's. Need to start "thining the herd" before I open this one. Will keep some of the existing HP12 around to do little side x side.

    The Edrington Group took over Highland Park in 1999 so the bottle change occurred shortly after that in late 2000 or early 2001 AFAIK.

    I picked up some Isle of Arran Robert Burns single malt. I love this whisky: light, lively, sweet. The nose reminds me of bubble gum, while the flavours are of fruit and vanilla.

    i picked up a bottle of the Yamazaki 12 year yesterday. a japanese whiskey made in the scotch style, but without all the peat flavor. quite good actually. i think i would get it again.

    While doing some hunting last night, I hit one store that had 2 bottles (liter) of Paddy Old Irish on the shelf. For $27 each, I was more than happy to take them home.
