    Seems kind of hard-core, but since I just bought 2 mumbo-jumbo glasses, it doesn't seem too far-fetched to have special whiskey water and ice :)

    Picked this one up today: Grangestone 1977: a cask strength limited release blended Highland. Opened the bottle when I got home for a small taste. Immediate reaction is VERY intense bouquet of oak and cinnamon. Tastes spicy with a hit of sweet vanilla, but a bit harsh with a medicinal back taste. That's likely the alcohol content. The oak is most prevalent: like a heavy Chardonnay. With some water this shold mellow out and be nice indeed.

    Well, I addressed my lack of scotch today, picked up a Glenlivet 18. Now this, is much more to my taste.

    Not technically Scotch since it is Japanese, but if you can find this try it. Nikka Coffee Grain. Very warm and toasty like a slightly floral highland malt.

    Thanks....
    I'll keep an eye peeled, but i doubt I'll
    see any of it around here. In my travels perhaps.

    That Nikka is my current favorite. I like it much more than I expected.

    I'm going to have to see if I can find that Nikka local. Japanese stuff is hard to find here.

    No decisions necessary. Start with the 21, then the 105, then finish the evening with the 10. :)

    I've been on a Japanese whisky kick lately. Found a bottle of Suntory Toki blend at Costco for under $40 and decided to try it. It is not a scotch nor a bourbon, it is super subtle, very sweet and floral, and quite nice as an after dinner topper. It will not become a regular thing for me, but it's nice to know and to have in the liquor cabinet.

    That reminds me, I saw Nikka Coffey on the menu recently and decided I needed to get some of that back in my cabinet.

    Here's the whiskey bar close to my house:
