Must've taken that pic after one too many.
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.
Good Choice...their Nadurra is good.
I really like that 18. :2tu:
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.
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.
Not much of a whiskey connoisseur but recent ly liked a single malt peated Irish whiskey - Connemara
I'm going to have to see if I can find that Nikka local. Japanese stuff is hard to find here.

I just grabbed a bottle of Wayne Gretzky's "99" whiskey the other day, it's not bad at all.
well, Now a Glenfarclas is calling my name
It's a soft voice, but loud.
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:
