    Nice. I just picked up the Clynelish on the weekend after having it on my short list for the last 2-3 years, as a big Compass Box fan. Pretty impressed with it so far.

    Ardbeg is pretty high up there on the phenolic/medicinal/smoky scale, so I'm a bit surprised you don't like the Bowmore 12. I think the 15 is just a sherry cask finish of the same Bowmore 12 recipe,...

    Thanks for the tip - I still have a third of a bottle left. Might pick up a Nikka Coffey Malt next, or possibly the Clynelish 14.

    The Hibiki you bought is a good choice. I bought one in the US for $58 a couple years ago, but can't find it for anything less than $114 locally. The Nikka 12 is nice too, but the one that really...

    It's all about gearing. I've done Edworthy repeats on my single speed bike. However, that bike on the pathways means 100rpm to do 27km/h. I guess that also means 50-55rpm on some sections of Edworthy.

    The RS80 should be a great training wheelset as long as the brake track still has life in it. They tend to go out of true once that wears below the limit, apparently. If they're good I'd keep 'em.
