makes me want to buy some bottles of scotch
Had an Oban 14 neat the other week, by and far my favourite Highland scotch at the moment, maybe because of the slight smokiness, I am a fan on the Laphroig Quarter-Cask.
Anyone have any experience with any Japanese SM's? There's a whiskey bar in my town that serves Yamazaki 12 Year and I'm eager to try it out.
Thanks! I'll have to try out the 12 and see if I can track down the 18.
Spent a week in Japan and had some fabulous whiskies:
Highland Park 25 (for, I swear, something like 1,500 Y)
A special edition Karuizawa (yummy, thanks ama!)
A special edition of Royal Lochnagar (RL is one of my faves)
An old...I think 34 yo expression of Port Ellen (one of the best whisky experiences ever)
A special Yamazaki (I think)
Tokyo is an incredible city for scotch. Truly incredible. Every half-decent bar has great whisky. The below is about a third of the scotch selection at the FABULOUS Shinanoya store in Shinjuku. They had whiskies in up to 44 y.o expressions, all the independent bottlers, the complete Flora and Fauna series, everything. It was better than a candy store.
I already miss Tokyo.
