Any One for a Scotch? - Page 267
Glenfarclas is all pretty similar in the range, with each older expression getting more and more like Christmas cake. They are all pretty solid but also a little weak in the alcohol with each being at 43%. They are all on the Sherried side so probably not the most appropriate for summer (not that I care) and also a little on the heavy (think dense) side as you go up in age. They are all pretty good in price and perfect for those trying to hone in on what they like. (these are especially good if you like yours sherried)
Also similar would be most anything from Aberlour.
State control out here so we don't get the scarcity pricing most of you see. Current pricing has the Yamazaki, Hibiki, and Hakushu 12s at $85, and the Harmony at $65. Had some of the Hibiki 12 last night to try and decide if I really want to pick up another bottle and I'm still not sure.
@jcman311 -- pretty impressive. I'd imagine you can get an insurance rider to cover the rare bottles. I think it's relatively common with wine collections.
Sort of an odd question to ask and I may pose this to the wine thread as well but has anyone insured a collection? After buying a few bottles last night I realized some bottles in my collection have exceeded a $1k value. I never thought they would get that high so I never put much thought into it. But now I would take a pretty big hit if something happened (fire, flood, etc). Thoughts?
Wouldn't it be covered under a homeowner's or renter's insurance? I have blanket coverage that covers all our personal belongings
This is just weird. A 17 yo Bunnahabhain from SMWS, but it's got some kind of odd (to me, at least) flavor to it that I just can't put my finger on. It's got some sherry, but then there's something else, something really potent and palate dominating -- and this may be the Bovril or Maggi that the label's talking about, although it says that's related to the smell, and let's be honest here, most often these descriptions are a whimsical exegesis of pure BS -- and the closest comparison I can think of is Moutai, which I didn't enjoy (pretty sure I never finished the bottle).
Missed this one. I've had the 15, and I've currently got a NAS CS version from K&L. Really liked the 15, still warming up to the new one. I'm definitely planning on picking up one of older bottlings especially as they still seem to be a decent value for the money.
