Blanton's gold US release

A few recent acquisitions 1980s bottlings of Glenfiddich 15 and 18. 1980s bottling of Macallan 12 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

My summer planned trip to Cuba was scuppered so I did the next best thing... a whisky buying trip/tour of Scotland! Had a great week with a mix of rain and glorious sunshine. Some great pick ups too -

I was gifted a bottle of Paul John Limited Edition Oloroso last week.

Up until then I had never heard of this and was hesitant to think a single malt from India would be any good. Much to my surprise, I was very wrong as it's remarkably good.

Very smooth, aromatic, fruity with hints of cocoa and vanilla. @Ken Gargett would even say stewed tinned fruit ;)

I iwll definitely look out for their other range of single malts in future.

Here is a link to the Limited Edition I've received.

Has anyone else tried Paul John Single malts?

can't work out if this is a nod to the beatles or catholicism.

Just got an email from my wine storage facility that my cases of Lopez de Heredia 2004 Tondonia and 2006 Gravonia. Also got my first order from Repris winery (fell in love with their Moon Mountain cabernet and their Sauvignon Blanc when we were in Sonoma a couple weeks ago) as well.

And Saturday should be exciting... finally will get my hands on my absolute favorite bourbon in the world. Cost me a pretty penny but I'm saving it for a very special occasion.

This stuff is soooooo good. It took me three years to find this. Now I need more.

Great find!  I've seen the Madeira and Peated, but never the sherry!

How's the 2000 Monte Bello? I just put in for a case of 2016 futures and am picking up a half case of 2013 next week (with another half case plus a bottle in a month or so when I'll be back around that store). I figure I'll have one bottle to drink young-ish and put the rest of the 2013s away for a good long time

I haven't had one of the 2000s yet, but drank a couple of 1999s last weekend.  They are into the drinking window that I prefer, with secondary flavours of cedar, leather and earth to go with the fruit.  I think that Monte Bellos are the most elegant wines to come out of California and I prefer mine with some age.  I've had 2005 and 2006 over the last 6 months, and both are drinking quite nicely but still young to my palate.  If you decant the 2013 for a few hours and pair it with a good steak, I think you'd be a happy man.

As for long-term potential, I hunted down a 1971, of the fabled Judgment of Paris tasting, a couple of years back.  It was fantastic, and still had at least a few years left.  So you're looking at practically indefinite cellaring potential.  Enjoy!
