Do you ever mix Petrus and Romanée Conti? Wink


Point taken. I'm so ashamed. Woot


It'not THAT bad, such mixtures of distilleries exist in the real world, under the name of vatted Whisky.

Which year are you drinking? Always interested in "discount" single malts.


Just the 12 year. I found it a couple years ago at a local chain for like $37 and thought what the heck, then saw it was from Dewar's and got curious. I'm not sure if Dewar's has always owned it or if it was a purchase like Guinness and Smithwicks, and honestly haven't done the research to find out. The are others I prefer but for the price I always have some on hand.

As far as i know, Aberfeldy plays the most important role in Dewars Whiskey blends. Aberfeldy distillery is fun to visit, especially "Dewars World of Whiskey".

Corralejo Reposado
1921 Reserva Especial Single Barrel*
Corazon Anejo
Gran Patron Platinum
Milagro Romance Reserve Anejo
Legenda del Milagro Reserve Reposado
Clase Azul Reposado*
*My personal favorites... Been a scotch and bourbon guy, but might start drinking some more tequila.


The Dude abides.

TPE, I never was either until visiting two Tequila houses a little over a year ago wheen in Mexico. I love the stuff now. If you like a little more barrel influence, I reccomend Herradura Anejo. About $45 in my market. Also, I think Espolon is a fantastic value Reposado under $20.

reading your post i managed to get drunk, contract an STD, throw up all over my keyboard, develop severe irritability towards light (both natural and artificial), and adopt a family of ferrets in need of rescue.

Glenmorangie 12 Quinta Ruban. Loving the coconut flavors at the end it gets from port barrels. It helps that it's colder than ass outside.

After I give a lecture this evening Im hoping to stop into a local steak house/bar and have a glass or two of 18 y/o MacCallan and shoot a little pool...too bad NH did away with smoking cigars in restaraunts a few years back..this place used to be perfect for that.

I picked up my Lot 'B' (the 12 year) and a bottle of the pappy's 20 year last night. I am down to the bottom of the 20 and 23 that i bought last year so this was good timing. super small quantities this year all around, direct from the distillery. places that usually get 3-6 bottles are getting 1.

20 year is my favorite and the 12 'lot b' is the best qpr out there imo.

enjoy!

Yeah I got the Lot B as well. Should be getting my hands on it next Thursday. Pretty excited. Maybe next year I'll spring for the 20yr.

Very nice list.

I have never had a "bad experience" with tequila, but there was a time that the mere smell of it nearly made me... Ack However, I have learned to really enjoy fine tequila over the past few years; about the same amount of time that I have been enjoying wine. Smile
