Ardbeg, in any vintage.
Redbreast for Irish whiskey.  After that, Jameson's.
I also like to look for independent labellers to get primo scotch for reduced cost.

Anyone feeling particularly rich?



Dalmore 64 Trinitas $160,100

Yet another product of the Dalmore Distillery, Trinitas is so named because only three bottles of this expensive whisky have been made. The whisky is a blend of rare stocks, including some that have been maturing at the distillery for more than 140 years. Two bottles were sold in Glasgow in 2010, one to a US-based collector and one to a UK-based investor. It is the first Scotch to sell for six figures.

It's probably good, but I sincerely doubt it's $159,800 better than Johnnie Walker Blue kind of good.

Never had a true Scotch Scotch that I liked. But I love this one, can't really afford it though.





They did a blended version about 15 years ago that was incredible as well.

Had excellent echoes of that SM that Glen Breton develops... kind of expensive, though!!
 
but someday, I may splurge if I find it on this side of the pond.

Aberlour cask strength, entirely raised and matured in Oloroso sherry casks... This is almost red (copper) looking...  Cask strength too...

Fuuuuuuck... Aberlour was coming close to overcomming Macallan as my fave Speyside, but with this one, I thnk they just skidded in as Spey kings...

I wish I could try the cask strength and above. Arberlour 12 was my least favorite single malt so far (tried maybe 15). Way too much of an alcohol burn.

Anyway, bump for updates.

Being as I'm still new to the game, I think I might be able to name all of the whiskeys I've had:

Samples I've had:

Lagavulin 12
Oban 14
Springbank 10
Ardbeg 10
Bunnahabain 12
Highland Park 18
Glenlivet 18
Glenfidditch 15
Macallan 18


Bottles I've had:

Macallan 12
Glanmorangie Quinta Ruban
Laphroaig 10
Glenfidditch 12
Cragganmore 12
Arbelour 12

Plus one or two I've forgotten. I only had the slightest of sips of the Macallan 18, but it was seriously f**king good. Highland Park 18 is next, and probably Springbank 10 after. I'm trying to get into the Islay malts, but it's difficult.

Jameson is fantastic. And Sonia, please try some bottles of Japanese whisky (Nikka Miyagikyo, Suntory Yamazaki are highly recommended for you). Beer
