Courtesy of a generous friend who also happens to work at Pernod Ricard:

The Glenlivet 25 Year Old
Ballantine's 30 Year Old

Both were excellent, but The Glenlivet was truly stunning.
1995 Chateau La Gaffeliere- Somewhat astringent with floral, cassis and earth on the nose. Repeats on the palate. Soft tannins with a long finish.

Mike, just wondered if you've had Rittenhouse, and if so, how the two compare?

Really? Cool How is it?

was a stunning brandy ..

apricots, fresh crushed chyrsantheum , so very very smooth with a honeyed finish
At the Salt Whisky Bar in London tonight I had the following nice pours:
Dailuaine 16yrs Flora and Fauna Series (cask strength)
Glenfarclas '105' (cask strength)
Lagavulin 16

I'd not come across the Dailuaine before but it was really beautiful.
Cragganmore 1989/2004 Signatory Un-Chillfiltered Collection
typical Cragganmore, balance is the key to complexity, clearly one of my Top 5 distilleries

Sure i've had. For some reason, the 16yr is not my cup of tea, but i do like the distiller's edition of the Lagavulin very much.
Went to a tasting at the 2bar distillery tonight. I already have a bottle of their bourbon, but tried their vodka and moonshine whiskey. Much smaller operation than I thought, considering the local press it's been generating, but have to say, both were top notch.

Good to know. Which would you buy if only buying one bottle?
