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

Picked up a bottle of Glenlivet 18...huge pass for me. Not my cup of tea. Almost everything else in that price range is better.

I personally find the 15 the best one of the range.

Just returned from Chicago where the Bourbon audit continues. Saturday night was the gala for the American Cancer Society. Silent auction, bought 4 bottles of local bourbon. Two from the basket here, plus a bottle of "FEW", found at a quality liquor store.

Two more have to be sent to us. And another basket called "Mixology". 9 bottles of assorted booze. Overpaid but for a great cause!

An independent bottling of single grain whisky that's way older than I am from the now closed and demolished Caledonian distillery.

That has an incredibly high abv for a 40 year old

New bottlings at 43% not good anymore?

just really didn't have any depth of flavor. I was expecting more. I think the smws are spoiling me.

Another bottle of the 1974 Caledonian 40 Year Old by Duncan Taylor for their Rare Auld series - bottle no. 88 of 213 this time.

What can I say? '88' is a good number and numerology is quite important in my cultural heritage.

Also a couple of Society bottlings from the latest Outturn:

- SMWS 10.85, a 17 year old Bunnahabhain from a 2nd fill sherry cask.

- SMWS 30.87, a 14 year old Glenrothes from a refill port pipe.

Yes - good buy. If you don't plan to get it then please let me know so that I can. :D

The 50.7% is the old bottling, buy as many as you can.
