Hello, Andreas.
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.
Cheers.

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 ;-)
Cheers Andreas

I'm happy to hear it, Andreas. I don't mind the Arran and its working class expression, the Robbie Burns. They have some island character, but they're not nearly as intense as the south Islays. A single cask expression, though, I would try if I found some.

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.

Got myself a bottle of Arran Rowan Tree recently and am liking it very much. Nice, full-flavoured dram, reasonably priced and I like it much better than all the weird Arran finishes I tasted at a N&T once. Arran's there to stay!
Kind regards, AA.

Hello.
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. :-)
Gladys.

The "new one" isn't a 15yo, it's a 10yo (10 /11, don't know the exact distilling and botteling date) to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Arran...
