j. s., go get yourself a bottle of Ledaig. It's an extremely good dram for the $$. If I had the means, it would be one of those whiskies that would be worth having a case of, in the prediction that at some point it won't me made as well and cost more $$. I too love that squeak/pop of a new bottle!

Which expression of the Ledaig did you get? I believe I saw the ten and perhaps 18 at my local bottle shop.

The 10 is all I've had.... Plenty of smoke with a backdrop that really sets it apart from Ardbeg/Lagavullin/etc....

Ledaig is at the head of my "treasure hunt" list. You have got my mouth watering, Zed! Mortlach as well....

My Son and I opened a bottle of Redbreast 12 and smoked a couple of fine ISOM cigars to celebrate the birth of his second Son. Came several days early and still weight over 10 1/2 pounds!

I've got pneumonia or bronchitis or some damn thing. Can't stop coughing. I think I picked it up at the walk in clinic. So I've been swilling white Russians and hot toddies all day. It doesn't help but who cares?

Lots of island drinks and the coconut porter beer from Maui brewing is pretty good.

Bought a bottle of "Larceny" bourbon a couple weeks ago. Must say I prefer it to my usual Wild Turkey 101. Although neither one holds a candle to a well matured UJ or SFW.

Funny you should say that S-Cack. I'm drinking a $100+ bottle of scotch a friend gave me. Recently I got into some year old UJ I had not checked in on in about 5 months. It is unbelievable. Some of the smoothest I've ever had. Better tha some very expensive bottles I have had. That also comes from some brothers of mine (I have a bunch of them) so I don't think it is bias on my part. If I can recreate it repeatedly, I will be golden. Will follow my notes closely and we will see in a year or so.
Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine
