Mortlach F&F is still pretty easy to buy from the UK and Germany.

Thanks for the info. Maybe if someone I know is in the EU/UK, I can get them to bring some back for me. Dammnit. Are the new expressions sherried?

Didn't have the heart to drink Mortlach since the news. And it was a shitty-ass day at work. The salty and sweet Oban seemed a good pour after getting home.

 

 

 

And a modicum of the Big Mac after dance class tonight:

A friend of mine just got a new job and I want to get him a bottle to celebrate. His favorite scotch is Talisker 10. Opinions on something for him to branch out to? I'm not sure if he's gotten into Islays, so that's a bit of a risk. Talisker 18 is out of the budget.

HP18, pretty much can't go wrong.

Also, Talisker 18 used to be $75 a bottle...sigh.

I haven't followed scotch that much but have prices gone up dramatically for others. I swear they are up 10-15% in Michigan. Mac12 is $57, previously $50. Abundah is over $80 now. Wtf.

He might also enjoy Bunnahabhain 12, Laphroaig 18 or Lagavulin 16.

My wife surprised me with a Bunnahabhain 25 yesterday.

MaCallan flight at Epcot:



A chance for me to try the Mac 18 & Fine oak 15, along with the Mac 12. It was a fine night...

Limited edition Yamazaki that has been finished in red wine casks. Mild (43% ABV) and sweet fruit notes...but rather good.

Just picked up a bottle of Auchentoshan Three Wood for my kid brother for Christmas. He's a big fan of the Lowland distilleries. I'm suspecting/expecting booze from both him and my mom on Wednesday; last year it was Woodford Reserve and a 375ml bottle of Macallan 18.

Tonight is a shindig at my aunt's house -- I'll probably have a cup of the ancient family egg nog recipe and then switch to Cardhu for the rest of the evening.

Nothin' like family at Christmastime when the family drinks almost exclusively gin and whiskys. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
