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 -

Blanton's gold US release

Today's pick up. 8 yr bottle, hard to pass up. Age statements are harder to come by these dsys.

It’s funny you are chasing age and I am chasing freshness and youth. Cheers and enjoy !

Even with only 4-5 years on it, it is really solid. If they can crank out some 7+, it will be really htf and tasty I would imagine.

Starting a rum collection..any suggestions appreciated. Prefer no added sugars or spices.

BD, not familiar with smith and cross but am a fan of flor de cana. love the 18 (and younger versions) but especially the 25. and the 30 though incredibly rare and you need to pay silly money. 

i reckon, if avoiding additions, foursquare is one you must try. 

there are heaps of rum threads. you'll find lots to enjoy among them. in the end, it will be largely down to what you can find in your region, at least for starters. 

also worth posting those you enjoy. it will help others to make suggestions for similar rums.

Thanks Ken ill grab some Foursquare and check out the threads. Drinking the Smith and Cross now. Wonderful stuff. As a peated scotch man, this has a very strong funk that most would stray from. Over ripe bananas, leather, then moves to dark fruits. It is an overproof, but still does fine on the rocks as a sipper. Look for it, it is a good price.

thanks. will do.

i am, like you, not a fan of the spiced rums but there is one, Stolen Smoked Rum (a kiwi mob using Fijian rum). not exactly peaty but it has a real smokiness to it that i like. but it is a real love it or hate it style.

Baruch Hashem to that.  The Orthodox put a whipping on whiskies.  They'll drink that instead of wine at dinner.
