...and coming back to topic:

After trying quite a few new ones lately, I came back to The Macallan 12 Saturday. It was was even better than I remembered. My palate has become more edge-a-ma-cated recently and I was pleased to feel much more comfortable with the 12...previously it had seemed a bit too "big." It was delightful (and went along very well with the Rocky Patel Royal Vintage I was smoking).

It also went along well with the "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" in my Denons!
The Date: May 12 2012.

The Time: Approximately 8:15 Central.

The Location: Theresa WI (most noteably - Mr. & Mrs. 2Beers garage).

A moment in time that I shall never forget...
Big Grin !

Oooooh ooooh me too me too! Wink
Had a new (to me) wonderful dram tonight at my Dufftown-born MIL's -- she went to the same store in Nassau I visited (and found the 1997 Bunnahabhain to bring back), but she got a 1993 Glendullan.

If you read some of the reviews of it, it doesn't sound promising, but this is yet another of the Murray McDavid bottlings, at 46% alcohol, bourbon and tempranillo casks, finished in Rioja ones.

Gorgeous colour -- like well-finished oak -- and a rich and complex nose. I put a wee bit of cool water into mine, and it made a huge difference in the complexity and warmth of the various notes.

Yummy!
A new one for me:
GlenTaite bottling of a 19 year old The Macallan. It was a b-day gift from my mom. (I believe it was purchased at Sam's Club.)
Delightful! Very complex!
I have only had two drams so far and hope to give more of a review the next time I sample it.
Getting ready for the show next week. Decisions, decisions...
Bring it ALL!!!!

Well...at least the CASK...

Nice collection! 18! Wow!

I'd suggest the cask strength...simple efficiency!
Kinda agree with Nung. Cask is just straightforward as you can be.
