I wish the hipsters would jump on the Rum or Vodka band wagon and leave my bourbon alone, so the prices and availability would go back to normal 

Asian market really drives the prices.  They have way more numbers and money than hipsters.

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 just had my friend snag me an ardbeg drum. I've never had any ardbeg, but my research tells me it's something I will probably like a lot.

So with the sad news of Single malt tariffs I noticed that our local Total wine has higher prices for Lag 16 and Ardbeg Ugidal by 10+ dollars per bottle. I been hitting small liquor stores which still have old prices due to the slow turnover. Just got a Lag16 for $83 and Total wine has it for $92....

Another new ardy. Can't wait to try.

If you try it soon, let us know. I thought about tracking one down but it's a hefty price compared to my normal bottle price threshold.

Once it opens up some---

 

Nose lots of iodine more intense than other ardbegs. Citrus is present too. A bit of mint.

 

Pallet: honey grapefruit, charcoal, mint.

 

Finish: leather and chocolate

 

I really enjoyed it. More intense peat than other Ardbeg. Worth the price of admission imo.

Evan Williams Red 12 Year 101 Proof (Japan Market). Can only get this in Japan or at EW Lousiville Urban Distillery. VERY GOOD!

The white label BiB is well beyond its price range. I'd take it over the hyped Dickel Blue any day. I bet this is awesome.

Ardbeg Supernova has been around for years, but that is a new label for it.

From what I understand this is the 2019 committee release.
