That's the one.


Seems like a good price. And Total Wine carries it. I will pick some up.


Not sure if I have that precise one, but I have enjoyed all the Plantation Rums. First had them a number of years ago at the Rum Bar in Key West. Bahama Bob knows his sh*t

Binny's carries it locally for about $45, although I've seen it for less online.

Caol Ila "smoke on the water" 1996/2008 bottle issued for whisky fair "whisky live Verviers"

wow... impressive bottle. one i would LOVE to try. nicely done.


yes, lovely bottle i found in a nearby shop, along with two other funny musically named whisky fair bottles, Longmorn "walking on the moon" and Strathisla "here come the rain again"
I'm (i was) not even a particular fan of Caol Ila, but this one, nomen est omen, is fascinating. Even though cask strength at 56.6%vol , this doesn't need a single drop of water. Smoky yet very balanced.

while sipping some Ardbeg Supernova...

ok this is not quite the same thing as that huge bourbon distillery, but it is quite common some big distillery is marketing some seemingly smaller brands. I am thinking of Irelands Cooley distillery for instance, that is marketing various different labels, such as Connemara peated Irish whiskey, that has no real relationship to Irelands Connemara region. Well at least the whisky is not bad at all, same as the whisky from that huge Bourbon distillery.

I'd not be surprised either, to find a mix of whisky distilled at some huge distillery, but aged in casks at some local "producer", not far from the concept of independent scotch malt bottlings. Some newly opened distilleries should not be blamed buying some stuff from a distillery imho, but they should correctly inform the consumer.

I agree.

Ok, you guys got me curious, so I picked up a bottle. Haven't had much rum in recent years that wasn't in a daquiri, so how do you guys take it? Straight? Rocks? Coke? Wink

I prefer it straight - no rocks needed IMO.

Yes normally neat. Unless outside in summer then on the rocks
The last few drops of a bottle Cognac Pierre Ferrand Selection des Anges, as Sunday-afternoon after-lunch-digestif. Clearly a bottle i'll seek again, despite it's price. 2 years of high class culinary pleasure, at 100€ a bottle, hard to beat with bottles of wine.
0ne of my personal top Cognacs,
#1 Frapin Extra
#2 Frapin VIP XO
#3 Pierre Ferrand Selection des Anges
#4 Camus Borderies XO
#5 Frapin Chateau de Fontpinot XO
#6 Delamain Pale & Dry
#7 Raymond Ragnaud fine Champagne
