I think a few of us still have a look in here from time to time. But the
good old days, with 20-30 posts a day and a lot of expertise around, are
long gone I'm afraid.
A little content for old times' sake:
I've been enjoying some of the fiery young south Islays lately (well,
not just lately. whenever I can find 'em): Smokehead, Finlaggan and The
Ileach are all available where I live now, and they're all relative
bargains compared to their older siblings.
I've recently acquired a cask-strength Ileach at 58 per cent, which is a
bit high-priced compared to the others, but quite a powerful dram.

I enjoyed an Arran Whisky not long ago, cask strength, single cask out
of a Sherry Butt, bottled by the SMWS. But - it was just five years old.
And it just blew me off. Fantastic, like a 12 yo with some more muscles
left. Really great stuff! But no one here who wants to know this ;-)

I'm in Canada, where alcoholic beverages are overseen by provincial
governments, and in most provinces can be purchased only in government
shops. The single malt selection here in British Columbia has improved a
lot in the past decade or so, but much is still missing and the prices
are very high, mainly due to excessive markups; the government is
addicted to the revenue.

Has anyone tried the 50ml 18YO Macallan bottles that were packaged with
the 750ml 12YO as a gift box last year? Truly wonderful stuff. Neat
little bottle too - complete with a nice box and a tiny little cork top.
Beautiful. Just beautiful. :-)
