Hey now - That Oban sounds really nice!

did it have an age statement?

I’m not familiar with at Oban.

It's their 14-year bottling but it's aged an additional 6-18 months in Montilla Fino sherry butts.  The 1991 vintage was released in 2005. I bought it when we visited Oban in 2006, I believe, but only recently opened the bottle for the first time.

Don Julio 1942 Anejo Tequila.  A 15 year old bottle I brought back from Cabo when I was there in 2004.  Pretty freaking amazing.

I saw a few tall, slim bottles of this in Puerto Vallarta last week. Didn't have an opportunity to taste it, so I wasn't sure if it was worth the $108 US price tag.

I love this stuff.  Expensive, but well worth the money in my opinion.

It sells for $130/bottle in my area; however, I've found it at Total Wine for $99.

When you consider what a 1.5-ounce pour sells for at restaurants/bars, it is a tremendous bargain.

I mostly drink single malts, such as Lagavulin 18, Talisker 18.  I have been enjoying some Yamazaki. 

Otherwise, I am liking Dingle gin.  It's a good sipping gin, and is really nice with a splash or two of Fever Tree tonic water.

I recently discovered Fever Tree. It's the only brand I buy now.

I've been sitting on a bottle of this for about 10 years.   How do you drink it?  Neat?  With ice and a slice of lime?

 

Having a gin & tonic, with Fever Tree and what's left of my Tanqueray after my 29 year-old daughter raided it yesterday. She says her millennial friends flip her chit about drinking gin, because it's an "old person's drink".  She says, "Fine, more for me."
