    interesting, nothing wrong with a good 'blend', let us know your thoughts after a dram or two ! In the world of blends the 'Dimple Pinch' has always been a favorite.

    Re: WHISK(e)Y!

    This is in no way helpful, but I know my (mostly abstemious) parents have a bottle of that Grand Old Parr in the basement. The catch is that it's the same bottle that was there long before I was of drinking age, which was a few decades back...

    Well, see, the bottle has been open and about half empty since I first remember seeing it. I don't mind trying next time I'm there, but my guess is that 30+ year old 12 year scotch probably isn't quite the same as "new" 12 year scotch!

    Enjoyed a classic Glenfiddich 18 yrs for our wedding anniversary!
    Forgot how good this was. Even the 15 yrs is really good.

    Had a few glasses last night on the patio. It's mild, not Smokey at all, nor overly peaty. Quite smooth overall. A bit lighter than I like. I prefer Oban 14 or little bay, but still quite good. I wouldn't say no to a glass.

    Thanks for the feedback, from your description it sounds very much like Dewars '12'. Agreed on the Oban, one of my favorite towns and distillery tours when I was there in '17.

    VERY rough week. Had to come home 2 weeks early from Aruba. Family member attempted suicide. This bottle might not last the night.

    Really sorry to hear that.
    It's nice to have some distractions to help us cope.
