Another new pick up is a limited release from Bunnahabhain, this is the Aonadh release bottled at 56.2%. This is a 10 yo release of vatted Port and sherry casks, very nice it is too.  Not found a bad bottle of Bunny yet.

Nice to see Bladnoch back in business and I can report this 11 yo is  very nice, super smooth  and very easy drinking, the best lowland malt I have had in a while.

Glenrothes 25, polished off a bottle of this over a few years and this is the replacement.

Smooth but with a quite a complex long finish, super tasty.

Bruichladdich Bere Barley release.   Nice, quite  sharp and spicy.  The other organic barley release is smoother and creamier on the palate.  Both nice drams.

@ddtrash wow you’ve got some great bottles there!  Would love to try the Ardcore and all the rest for that matter. I’ve moved to Scotch Whisky’s over the past few years after mostly drinking (and loving) bourbon. Looks like we all need to meet at your place for a dram! 😂

@SKT no problem, open invite.

Been collecting for a while now, well collecting and consuming.

The “open shelf” is pretty healthy and the collection is growing and remarkably offering a pretty good return.

I have managed to grab most of the Ardbeg limited releases and they all do well on the secondary market, pity I won’t get to taste many of them for this reason.

I can't even say them let alone drink em. I'd have to point like a kid." gimme a bunnyhellbane and a bottle of Smartalecky."
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...
Well, I have others.

I’m there in spirit as I’m a big horse racing fan. No way I’d attempt to go to Louisville during Derby week. Planning to go there towards the end of September.

I hear you. I imagine it would be a madhouse.

I've been giving thought to visiting Whiskey Row. Until recently, I never realized just how easy it would be for me to get there...

That’s supposed to be really good. I’ve never had it. Any thoughts? Was it expensive?
