I don't really drink much anymore, but I do enjoy the occasional single malt, like Highland Park, or better yet Glennmorangie. Got a few 18 year bottles stashed away.

For me its more about the experience of a good single malt. The way it changes on your palate, the way it finishes. I typically have one, maybe two single pours in a Glencairn glass in the evening. More than that at one time is a waste.

Those are two I have yet to try, but they'll go on the list too.

excuse me, sir, I fixed your misspelling. perhaps you could spare a couple pence for this hungry young lad, me mum is on dialysis.

but I thought this is make believe, sir, where you drink and fly a dreadnought


Apparently having the occasional glass makes me less likely to spell check properly. And look! I've even rhymed without intending it!

While my personal favorite remains Lagavulin 16yo, I've also recently been enjoying Laphroaig 18yo while listening to a http://ralfy.com vid in the background.

What fine drams do you pilots partake of in the long lonely journeys across New Eden?

Second the Lagavulin, though one of the the bottles in my cabinet right now says "21 years." It's the sherry cask-aged bottling, and bloody pricy, too. I doubt I'll ever pay that much for a dram again - though I don't regret it, either. Bloody perfect whisky. Cool

Unfortunately, paying north of US$600 / fifth makes it 'Births, Weddings, and Funerals' only.

The 16 year Lagavulin is very fine, but there are matches for it in quality. I also have a fondness for Bunnahabhain, Macallan, and Laphroaig. My day-to-day tipple is Dalwhinnie, which is a very centrally-balanced whisky.

I'm hoping you use Wine Preserver on it, or the oxygen will get to it eventually.

I've found the Macallan's to be hit and miss for me (as for the Laphroaigs). Macallan 12 I didn't like but 15 and 18 are very nice indeed. Macallan 18 is similar enough to Lagavulin Distiller's Edition that I tend to lean toward it instead (~ $60 less to boot).

Laphroaig: 10yo Quarter Cask is good but I haven't tried their main whisky yet.

I'll have to add Bunnahabhain to my "try" list as I've heard about it but not yet had the opportunity.
I do. And the family is large enough and active enough that I'm not going to be sitting on it all that long. More weddings and births than deaths, fortunately. Blink

Maccallan 12 is 'Meh - OK' by me; I much prefer the 15, and own a fifth - I will buy more when that is gone. Haven't tried the 18 yet, must add it to the list.

The Laphroaig 10 year graces my cabinet; I've had the Quarter Cask and 18 year and enjoyed them both very much. My mother has a case of the 18-year, and is not loathe to share. Cool

Bunnahabhain 12 is a maked contrast to the heavy, peatier malts. It's light and airy, and has a long finish. I've got my sights set on some Bunnahabhain 18, but haven't gotten around to acquiring any yet.

This one in particular.

Sure, it's not a single malt, but whatever gets you through space.

The amusing thing there is that about three commenters down in your link is an actual neckbeard. Big smile


Well spotted, but I very much doubt that the piccy is of the commentard.

It would appear to be a pic of Jim Royle (from the the UK benefit scroungers sitting farting around the TV 24/7 sit-com The Royle Family) played by the actor Ricky Tomlinson.

Neck beard is fair comment though, but I doubt that Mr Tomlinson is spending much time sat in front of a PC in Denmark commenting on mead.

One original thought is worth a thousand mindless quotings - Diogenes.

I reread my phrasing and realize I was probably unclear in my pronoun use. Macallan 18 is definitely worth trying, and like Lagavulin Distiller's is finished in Sherry casks. Mac 18 costs ~ $160 and the Lagavulin DE costs ~ $110. Both have heavy smoke controlled by the sherry finish. But I'd happily recommend either.

I'm glad your family has more happy occasions than sad. May it continue to be so.

Watching the Iditarod finish, and I wanted a treat whilst waiting - Uncorked by newly acquired bottle of 15-year Dalwhinnie DE. Double cask-aged, darker and more rich than the usual. Very nice, but maybe a bit too much sherry?

I just recently had a tasting of the generally available Glenmorangie range (10, 12yo sherry, 12yo port) and they were all fine specimens. I think I'd agree that there was more going on with the original 10yo. It's a good every-day single malt.

Oddly enough, though I've tasted the Glenmorangie, I don't recall it well. That's another bottle sitting on my mother's bar - Will have to sample again.

Having tried the Dalwhinnie DE again, I'm thinking more that it was a mistake. Just too much sherry, which creates an almost 'over ripe' flavor, completely dominating the distinctive sweet/vanilla/heather/citrus lead, though the smoke and peat do manage to peek out from under the sherry at the end.

Not an improvement, and I regret the purchase. My earlier comment on this dram was colored by the fact that I was distracted. What?



Have to add Talisker to my 'to be acquired' list.

Yes, I'm coming to the conclusion that many of these Distiller's Edition offerings are gimmicks to pump the price. Diageo isn't the juggernaut it is for no reason.

Indeed.

Though I will note that the Laguvalin DE is a welcome companion to the Laguvalin family. In that bottling, they got things right.





Edit:
I should note that the Dalwhinnie DE that I am down-grading is the 2005 bottling, and my comments apply only to that edition. Other editions may be superior - I wouldn't know.
