Exactly right. Laddie 10 with some water makes it even better....ice? no way
Currently working on a Talisker 25 (a newer bottling; not the usual cask-strength ones from the past), GlenDronach 18 and a Glenfarclas 30. Was particularly disappointed by the Glenfarclas -- I'd read great things and the nose is simply amazing, but the taste and mouthfeel fall flat. Not bad, but they just do not have the same depth and intensity as the nose.
Yes, I actually have a bottle open now. Its very pleasant, but a little light in terms of mouthfeel for me to want to drink it regularly.
I haven't seen the 17 or 21 in the States yet.
I think that the 18 is much better, but the price on it has gone crazy lately. I don't know that I'd be rushing out to pick it up at well over $100 as its priced now.
so far the best $54 bottle i've come across
I've had a lot of bottles at around $50 that I'd rather drink. After having it a few times and I'm more in Gnatty's camp than Bacon's on this one. I don't think its bad by any stretch of the imagination, but I think its way overhyped, especially around here. Still you Bacon!
Johnny Walker Black? I guess it depends what you want to mix and if you want something a little smokier or less smoky.
Oggie is $50ish there? That is quite a deal...
Adding: HP12, Springbank 10, Aberlour 12 or AA, Clynelish 14 some others...
