    I do like the Whiskies coming from Islay..perhaps with the exception of bunnahabhain, that I find a little bland. But what I get back to, more and more, is the irish Rebreast Whiskey, which slowly has come to be my favourite poison by choice.

    I've just opened a bottle of Bruichladdich Islay Barley Rockside Farm 2007 (50% abv) and for such a young one it is very complex ...and very delicious. Maybe not quite as complex as the extremely poetic blurb on their website has it...or, most likely, my tastebuds just aren't up to that highly evolved level of discrimination. It is jolly good though.

    Don't sleep on some of the older first fill sherry Bunnahabhain by some of the independent bottlers. These are real gems.
     
  4. Band-Aids?! :rofl: I have no idea. I've never tasted Band-Aids. :p They do sort of smell the same though. :p You definitely have to be in the mood for it. Then again, Ardbeg nearly overwhelmed my friend. lol lol
     
  5. That really is a good one but it was even better a few years ago.
     
  6. It is the least peaty Islay you will ever find that is for sure. It is also a good scotch. :D
     
  7. Wow! Sounds like something I need to look for. Binny's anyone? :p

    McCallan 15 yr or 18 yr if not available.
     
  15. Good choice either way. I still like Glendronach a bit better though.

    Back when I was climbing the greasy pole of corporate management, a supplier gave me a Christmas gift of Caperdonich single malt. not being a connoisseur of the myriad of Scotch whiskies, it wasn't a name that I had ever seen in shops or pubs. but it was an incredibly smooth and very moorish whisky.

    Fast forward by about 15 years, by now the internet is in common usage and I spied the name Caperdonich. Looking it up, I was dissappointed to discover that the distillery had closed. However, by following a link I came across Master of the Malt. How pleasing it was to see that very same whisky that had been a much appreciated, generous gift, listed as a whisky collector's masterpiece, and your's for a mere: £1248:43.

    Is that for the bottle? I'd want the cask for that amount.
     
  17. That was a better gift than you thought. :p

    In UK it sold for ~55 pounds sterling. I grabbed one in Moscow on the business trip for ~US$113. I also saw a CDN$130 price in BC. In theory you should be able to find it under $100.
