Old Pultney is incredibly underrated. I have been meaning to pick up the 21yr myself, will have to try it next...

Pulteney 12 & 17 are good malts IMO, the 17 more complex and nuanced that the 12. They both have this great sea salt note that really makes them unique...
What wad ye wish for mair, man?
Wha kens, before his life may end,
What his share may be o' care, man?
Then catch the moments as they fly,
And use them as ye ought, man:
Believe me, happiness is shy,
And comes not aye when sought, man.
...my brass quintet put on a benefit concert last night for a youth center in Baltimore, and we closed with an arrangement backing a bagpiper on a medley of traditional Scottish stuff. Fortunately it was the sort of show where I felt right at home pouring glasses of Lagavulin 16 for my colleagues before the last piece. Good times.
Most of the major Binnys have great selections. Most of them also have a room/display for rare and expensive whisky. If you are near downtown all of those locations will have that sort of setup. It is really more of the suburban areas that the selection decreases. I have always found something unique to take back north from Binnys (I am in WI)
Awesome, thanks. I've been to the South Loop location a bunch of times and it's pretty amazing and, like you, I've always found something awesome. I wasn't sure if it was unique or not. The River North will be a bit more accessible this time around.
