    From this convo, I've chilled a glass and been drinking something casual tonight. I definitely enjoy whiskey at room temp as the aroma and taste is more appealing to me.

    Does anyone have recommendations for good books on Whisky(ey)?

    Not looking for comprehensive review type books as all of that is easily accessible online but rather something with interesting historical facts, regional information, distillation and casking techniques and those types of things.

    Anyone attend the MS Whisky fest last night at the Glenbow ?

    I got a late invite from a colleague and it was awesome...

    The tasting class with The Bunnahabhain rep was incredible...

    Soooo many options for testing afterwards as well.

    Mike is awesome, I'm with him in Victoria this weekend for the whisky festival out here. Easily one of the best brand ambassadors!

    Nice lineup!

    What are the 2 Balvenies? I've heard the Doublewood is good but haven't seen it around here yet.

    Looks like the Doublewood and Caribbean Cask 14. Id skip those two and go for the Single Barrel 12 and/or 15

    Hot damn. Finished a big work project yesterday and decided to treat myself to a bottle of Laphroaig 10 off Amazon Spain for 34 Euros. I'm not a Prime member or anything but it was here in 24 hours. Talk about dangerous!!!

    IMG_20200121_145954.jpg

    My collection is nothing compared to most of you but given I've only been living here for <2 months I can't complain. The Glenfiddy 18 is getting cracked tonight. I picked up the Cardhu 12 after trying it at my girlfriend's uncles - apparently, Spaniards love Cardhu and Chivas. I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth and good it was for 24 Euros/bottle. It's not a complex whisky or anything but it would be easy to plow through a bottle without much care given the price (which is why I've kept it sealed, for now).

    Not sure what will be next on the buy list. Probably Lagavulin 16 and something Lowlands.

    Nice! They don't sell this in Canada (I think they might in Europe), but if you ever come across the Laphroaig 10 Case Strength edition (they release a new batch every year), it is SOO good. IMO it's as good as the Laphroaig 25 and half the price of the Cairedeas. Every time I see it in the States I pick up a bottle.

    Once I make a dent in the 10 I'll consider placing an order.... https://www.laphroaig.com/en/10-yo-c...ngth-batch-011

    I like the Glengoyne offerings a lot. I just finished my bottle of Glengoyne 25 not long ago. Actually, @LongCity got the last ounce! Lol! Delicious stuff

    Appreciated the generosity.

    I still want the 25YO, at some point. Though, probably one of the most affordable 25YOs, I don't want to shell out ~$450 for it. Yet. My palette isn't seasoned enough to discern a $200 bottle from a $450 one right now.

    Got the chance to have a small nip of this, last night, courtesy of Eride. Slightly disappointed and underwhelmed, given all the rave the previous iteration receives.

    If you haven't already, you need to try the Dark Cove in the back...

    I don’t for sure but it should be its actual stated age. I think it’s a 2018 or 2019 bottle and not the ones people swoon over that is bottled using the juice from when their distillery closed.

    I’ve read that the “older than they actually are” bottles aren’t always better. For instance, the 18s that are actually low/mid 20s aren’t as good as the bottles released around 2014/2015 - the ones closer to their stated age. I have a 2014 release 18 and it’s amazing.

    I’ve heard good things about the Dark Cove but right now, I really have no desire to drink a peated expression, unless it’s a Campbeltown or the Lag 8. I loved peat at one point, though.
