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 -

Most definitely! I finally found it and got a discount on it after the bourbon war 4 year and bourbon country were great! I preferred them over the Weller special reserve! Great price and great bourbon

Scored a Booker's today while out running a few errands, also decided to grab the new Four Roses Small Batch Select (see what the fuss is all about).

interesting one. we see some dictador but have never seen anything like that from them. 

I had to buy it online, they don’t even carry the 12 or 20 year in Ohio. I believe they did 7-10 of these best of series ranging from the mid 70’s to mid 80’s

great stuff all round! 

Ken, I enjoy wine and that Opus is noticeably better then so many I've tried. The fruit is quite intense but balanced. This is the 2015,  I'm going to search for the 2016 because I read it was much better. That'll be my wife's birthday wine.

Where did you find bookers? Local or chain?

I was just about to ask what vintage was the Opus... Have you tried the 13?

i remember the early opus one releases (sadly, that old). they were pretty interesting and exciting. i'm not that up with napa vintages so i can't help you but if you are serious, i have a friend who is a maker there - his father was involved with some of the wines which won the famous tasting in paris. i could chase him and ask if you want.

Well, I just got the 2016, now I have to hide it from the wife! I don't want to go older, they go up $25.00-$50.00 every year.... I cant locate the 2017. So that would be great!

That was 2015. First time I tried it. Had a Cohiba Esplendido. went well together, but I preferred the 23yo scotch...
