I didn't realize glenlivet was a ndp. I remember reading something about laphroaig or lagavulin being one of the only producers to go from grain to whiskey.

Anyone into Japanese whiskies? Here are a few pics from my recent visit to Yoichi Distillery. Bought the 20 yr single cask. Amazing.

From Japan, I have only tried Yamazaki 12, I need to revisit it again...

Jealous! I only every had Japanese whisky in Tokyo, but I had great fun with it -- some old Karuizawas, Hibiki 17 and 21, Yamazaki, and I forget which peated malt. It is good whisky; wish I knew enough when I was in Tokyo to bring something good home with me.

No question. And yes, I know it is probably the hipsterest Japanese malt, but I had a wonderful Karuizawa experience at Bar High Five.

I picked this up tonight. I was able to try a dram of HP 12, and also Balvenie Double Wood 12. HP was good, but had some peat to it, which wasn't terrible by any means, but wanted something else. The Double wood 12 was real solid too. I just winged it from there, as this sounded very tasty, and I'm pretty new to Scotch anyways, so why not explore? After my first sip just now, I am liking it.

Agreed. Every Karuizawa I've tried has been amazing, to say the least. The prices these days are skyrocketing out of control...

The expansion of my collection continues. Added Bowmore 12 because my Laphroaig QC has become my favorite and I needed another Islay.

Any thoughts on The Balvenie DoubleWood 17 year old?

I've had the 12 and I like it but saw this at the liquor store of the little town I moved to a few months ago. I think it was $130.

I tend to like sweeter whiskys that are finished in sherry casks such as The Macallan 18 and I've been trying to catch up to this thread for a while now to get some ideas. Wondering if I should hold out and splurge on the PortWood if I can find it.

Grabbed a bottle of Glenmorangie Nectar D'Or ($75) that I've been looking forward to trying. Surprised they had it in stock because the place is such a hole in the wall. They had some Highland Park and Oban too. Can't remember which year.

Also a Glenfiddich 15 Solera Reserve that I was thinking to grab at some point.

Speaking of, I have a sample dram of Balvenie Portwood 21. Been looking forward to trying that one tonight...
