Agree, although I'm not a fan of Talisker in general.

Mac 12 is too sweet. :colbert:
Dalwhinnie 15 is bland. :colbert:



Never tried Tomatin. How was it?

It was a refined Mac 12, best way I can describe it. I'm new to scotch but finding I prefer the Highland region products the most so far.

The Dalwinnie is mine (wife got it for me years ago) and the others were at my buddies house.

Open the Laphroaig with caution. You'll either fall in love or just fall over.

Already have a Laphroaig 10, which I enjoy. Where'd you put the Quarter Cask in comparison to the 10?

Its sweeter and almost more potent. Probably because more scotch gets contact with more cask throughout the aging process.

I'm not a huge Laphroaig guy but I have a friend who swears by it and he loves it.

Had the Jura Superstition the other night and quite liked it. I think I'll buy it next. Seemed like a nice balanced type, somewhere in the middle of the usual scotch extremes.

Hit up a 10% off sale at the SAQ today and picked up some Bowmore 12, anCnoc 12 and Talisker 10.

Looking forward to trying all of them.

Aberfeldy has become my go-to when getting back from work... with Bowmore 12 close behind.

I'm having the Bowmore now. I'm rather liking the smoky finish.

The anCnoc will probably be taken to a Scotch party I'm attending next month. It isn't available at the LCBO so it should be a cool bottle to bring.

I finished my Macallan 25 a few months ago (which was a gift my dad got me at my wedding). I think he bought the 1975 edition.

I just noticed that the SAQ has just released a few new bottles of Macallan 25. $1,560. Bloody hell. What has happened to scotch.

I do. But I'm not that stupid with my money.

Though to be honest, if I could somehow control myself from opening it. It'd be a great investment.

















But ain't no way I'm not opening it... :why:

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.
