Knappogue Castle Irish Single Malt is a personal favorite, sadly this is one of their 12 years as opposed to their older vintage styles. I got to enjoy a whiskey that was bottled the year I was born. It also cost about my age as well but it was worth every penny for that dram.

Yesterday, we were in a whisky shop looking at whiskies and tasting whiskies and I left the shop slightly dizzy and with a new whisky.

Ardmore. It's nice!

If I remember rightly, Monkey Shoulder is a blend, but a brilliant one, and the only one I'll drink happily neat.

Turns out I won tickets to the Monkey Shoulder 'Malt Jockey' night in London a few weeks ago. They served up three free delicious whisky based cocktails. It is great! And yeah its a blend.

Maybe I should start a new thread for this, but I think this is where it belongs.

I ran out of my normal 10 year old Laphroaig, and when I went to replenish my supply, my normal 10 year old was not available.  There were only five bottles on the Laphroaig shelf:  three bottles of Triple Wood, one bottle of cask-strength, and a bottle of "Cairdeas Port Wood Edition".  I bought the bottle of Cairdeas, since I had never heard of it before.  According to the bottle, each year Laphroaig's master distiller "handcrafts a limited edition malt to celebrate friendship ('Cairdeas' in Gaelic").   

One glass convinced me that I will buy more of it if I ever get the chance.  Review.

Anybody else had any experience with Laphroaig Cairdeas?

I would love to tell you that I had had the pleasure of tasting that scotch ... but I haven't. Because it's expensive. And I'm limiting myself to one expensive scotch at a time.

Well, my bankaccount is, anyway.

Otherwise I'd be all over this. I like Islay scotches. They're the best.

My normal drink is 12-year Glenfiddich. My wife likes Laphroaig. But I got to try something new the other night. We were at a liquor store that was giving samples (never been in a liquor store that gave free samples before!) of a Vermont-brewed maple bourbon - "Sapling" is the brand. It's quite good - not something I'd care to drink all the time, but we got a small bottle for toasts on New Year's Eve.

It was expensive - $25 more per bottle than my usual. 

12 year old Glenfiddich was what I was drinking before I discovered Laphroaig. 

A maple bourbon sounds pretty nice actually, especially for New Year;s Eve toasts.

Never been to a store where they give out samples?

Man, are you missing out. Last time I bought a bottle I went to a store that specialses in the special. Walked out with a rare bottle of Bowmore. But before I got near making that choice I was 7 drinks in. Practically hammered. A very delightful afternoon. Apparently there's a new(er) distillery on Islay and the first bottles are being put on the market. Kilchoman. Quite nice, but still a bit young for my taste. Went through everything they have put out so far before I settled on the Bowmore.

12-year Glenfiddich is what I recommend to people who are new to scotch because of how mild, un-peaty, and (relatively) universally palatable it is.

Laphroaig is my default for peaty deliciousness, although if Talisker were cheaper in the US I would also recommend the 15 for smokiness and tasting like you licked the inside of an oak tree in a campfire.

Speyburn 10 is great for the opposite end of the spectrum, since it's very light and fruity and has almost a floral nose sometimes.

My hands-down favorite is Auchentoshan. It's really rare stateside, though, which makes me sad.

In North Carolina, where I spent the first 46 years of my life, a liquor store that gives out free samples is not only unheard of, but illegal. Liquor stores are a state-run monopoly there.

Massachusetts has different laws.  8-)

Afraid not. But will start looking. In these parts a government operated chain has a "monopoly" on liquor sales (=anything stronger than beer) by the bottle. They try their best, meaning that I got introduced to Cask Strength and Quarter Cask through them. Private citizens are allowed to import stuff, too, and a local pub owner specializes on Scotch. Just recently got my first taste of Triple Wood at his place. A pleasant experience. What would a connoisseur call the aftertaste? Oakish? Anyway, my next visit to his pub is coming in a week and a half, so I will ask for it.

Well. Today was the day! I got to visit that pub with a hot lady with dreads (don't read too much into that - she's a former grad student of mine), my "first born" PhD student and his wife. YESSSSS! The first six bottles this place has on display behind the glass are regular Laphroaig, 18 y old Laphroaig, Triple wood, Quarter Cask, Cask Strength, and.... Cairdeas. You gotta appreciate the owner's sense of priorities (and I'll know where I'll take Celticgeek, should he ever show up in these parts). After a few rounds of Cairdeas (exquisite) I switched to Cask Strength for its raw power.

Paying the price now in a way. But tomorrow there will be another day.

So, my liquor store did not have any more Laphroaig Cairdeas Port Wood Edition, so I bought a bottle of Laphroaig Triple Wood,  Again, after one glass, I would buy more of this, too. 

Nice nose and taste.

Still casually working my way the a bottle of English Whiskey. I felt sure that something distilled in a place that's not even in the same postcode as a , Munro, Furth Munro, Corbett or even a Marylin would simply fail to be a good malt. However, I was completely wrong and the fine folk of Norfolk have done well.

A bottle of this is well worth your investment.

Mind you, I'm approaching the end so will be off to Sheffield's Dram Shop for a long rambling discussion on what I should be buying. I will then promptly disregard the entire conversation and make an impulse purchase. So far, this has proved the best way to buy Whiskey ever.

Well that's kind of uncalled for. I know it was in jest, but maybe a little harsh?

Depending on the state, liquor stores are open for most of the day. Hell, there's a chain store near me called Bottle King that is pretty much a supermarket (it has a little food, but mostly alcohol), and is GIGANTIC.

Sorry, I didn't mean it to be harsh. Man, I'm managing to be offensive without intending it all the time lately :( I shall try to stop doing that. What I meant was, I find it strange that in a country that prides itself on freedom there are strict rules about where you can buy alcohol. I found it odd that there were such rules in Norway, too, but Norway is more upfront about having a lot of rules.

We do have liquor stores too, but they're not as common I don't think, because their main purpose is to sell speciality stuff since you can get everyday stuff in the regular shops while you buy your food.

In more civilized states you can buy booze in grocery stores, corner stores, gas stations... hell liquor stores have drive through lanes in some places! It's the East coast that really cramps down on that sort of thing, and the very extreme chunks of the Bible belt where horrible places called "dry counties" exist.

Man, you're really trying to get me to move out to Colorado. And it's kind of working. (The having family there helps too, but yeah)

I live in a dry village! I also live in a working men's social club, aka a pub. Britain: full of contradictions since 1066.

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."

Long before 1066; think of the DaneLaw, for instance.

Talisker strikes back. Tonight I got to check out what 25-year old produce of Skye tastes like (the bridge club relocated). Ahhh. Ok, at 32 euros a shot it will be a rarity. In particular when I'm driving (and it hit zero on the Fahrenheit scale today, so I'm not riding my bike).

I guess it's needless to add that partner and I won the night's matchpoint pairs contest. In spite of the opps making a couple of doubled contracts. :-D

Tried some Bookers Reserve bourbon the other night. That might be the most delicious whiskey I've ever had, and holy shit , 126 proof! :psyduck:

My liquor store is apparently trying to keep Laphroaig Triple Wood in stock.  I thanked them and replenished my supply.

At which point they failed in their attempt to keep it in stock?
