Any One for a Scotch? - Page 185

post #2761 of 3256

Has anyone tried The Macallan 1824 Series? Gold, Amber, Sienna & Ruby... What do you think?

Went to a tasting event of them in Toronto during the week... interesting line up, but I wasn't blown away by any of them really.

I'd say I preferred the Sienna over all of them, but the Gold had a huge vanilla & honey nose.

I think the Gold is worth the price ($65) as a simple, smooth summer whisky, but I wouldn't pay the money for Sienna and Ruby ($175 & $300, respectively)- LCBO prices

I wouldn't know, SG, as I have never been to Europe and have never attempted to order from there -- I don't even go on EU sites because I get jealous. But I know that the F&F line was distributed pretty much everywhere but the states.

I'll ask her to take a look, never know what will turn up. I had no luck in paris, but very little of my searching was dedicated to scotch.

The EU sites make me crazy, good prices and everything until you go to purchase something and see the shipping price to the US.

If you ever wanted to get in on one HUGE order at some point, maybe with a few guys, would be a great excuse to get some good stuff, split shipping costs, get together to pick-up and share some...

LOL, dunno actually...doesn't have to be, but the more guys who order, the less shipping will be. Three or four guys who may be interested would work, but also if you and I wanted to go ahead, it may work as well...

Which site, MOM? Lets make it happen.
post #2770 of 3256
Mom seems to taper off to about $16/ bottle at 7 bottles, and stays about that, is any other place cheaper?
post #2771 of 3256
unless we do a meet up we'll also have to ship it again to individual residences in the us

looks like mom will only refund you the vat if you email them
post #2772 of 3256
I'd caution not to make the order too huge. If it gets seized you'll all be out a huge amount of money.

Re F&F Mortlach, I saw it all over Europe late last year. It should be floating around still.
post #2773 of 3256
Awesome, possible this search will be fruitful then.
post #2774 of 3256
Any recommendations for something good (and/or representative) In the Sherry Bomb style? I worship at the altar of Islay and am looking to find a dram as distinctive as the islays in a completely different style. I've heard good things about Aberlour a'bunadh-- thoughts?

Did some more dusty hunting yesterday in Jersey...found some cool stuff, most of which I look fwd to drinking.

I really look forward to the Astar and the CI, and I'll be doing a side by side of the Mortlach with the 16 year old F&F.

 

 

Well, you've mentioned my two favorite Scotches in a single post. Well done...

 

Longmorn 15 and Mortlach 15 are both spectacular in my opinion.

 

Longmorn was the one I had in Edinburgh with my required haggis, neeps and mash dinner. And Mortlach was the bottle I brought home from that trip (the bottle was subsequently massacred by my dad before I got to really enjoy it). I'm a Speyside man, and these are the two best I've tried.
