Not a label Ive seen before. Is it old or reproduction old?

They said it was the old old old version. Was sitting in somebody's cellar. Was so old they had to replace the cork. Cask strength glenmorangie. Only it doesn't say cask strength but straight from cask. I didn't even know they made those. I didn't even know there were fat bottles

Had that glenmorangie lightness but a really long finish and great depth of flavor. Flavors just kept going

Thanks for that

No prob. The tasting notes looked pretty good on it. Hope you enjoyed.

With take-out sushi rolls. (Lawyerkid prefers to pair her sushi with Sprite.)




Last night was Pommelo, a cheap citrusy Sauv Blanc from the supermarket that was pretty tasty and refreshing to drink in the park with random finger foods.

Oh, and then some Cut Spike on the rocks before bed.

I have it on good authority that feces and isopropyl alcohol have very dissimilar mouthfeels.

We could ask Charles Loughton, but he's gone.  I read on Wiki that he was into the former. :-(

 

Cheers

Meh. Faux connoiseurship comment. The JW blends have long been very good expressions of what malt whisky has to offer - and certainly at Black and above.

Last night I had a dram of Black and one of Mac 18. To say that Black is shit in that comparison is nonsensical.

+1. Black is certainly a very reasonable quality whisky. Red is garbage, but that's hardly the flagship for the brand.
