A bit young, no?  2016 is a good vintage.

Yes, totally agree with you on youth and vintage. I just wanted to try it out - I have little restraint most times. I should go back and grab one and try to be more patient

Buy 7.  1 for now and 6 to wait decade + to start.  It's easy to let them age once you have a good impression in the mind on what wine tasted like.

2017 Little Book. Last night decided to try this again, haven't had it since my last bday (next one is creeping up too) still hot, but better than I remembered.

Enjoyed this last night while installing a toilet in the new house:

Yes, LOL, while installing. Take a drink, remove a part of the old toilet. Take a drink, remove another part, repeat until new toilet is installed! Easy peasy!

i put this up in another thread and then realised it should probably be here. 

lunch with a few mates the other day, with some thoughts.

don't have the notes with me so going off memory for thoughts and vintages - 

pol roger sir winston 2002 - as good as one could hope.

gosset celebris 2004 - fair, thought it would be better. shown up by those around it.

philipponnat clos des goisses 'les cintres' 2008 - spectacular. first time any of us had ever seen this. 

trimbach 'clos st hune' 2012 - as good as any clos st hune i've ever seen. amazing. 

the next two were blind (but served in the bracket with the clos st hune).

trimbach geisberg 2012 - decent. probably would have looked better by itself, rather than being shown up by the clos st hune.

rene renou 'Anne' Bonnezeaux 1997 - rich, old, sweet, complex. a few of the guys dismissed it on arrival but they all keot their glasses and finished the lot. 

next bracket - 

bouchard meursault geneveries 2005 - opened a bit dull but soon came around and was lovely. 

bonneau du martray corton charlemagne 2012 - a very good Bonneau but not one of the greats. at least not yet. 

reds -

bouchard 'Le Corton' 2005 - again, very good, but i am never convinced that corton deserves elite grand cru status. may be, with a lot of age. 

Elio Altare Brunate Barolo 1999 - as good a Barolo as one could ever wish for. amazing. i'd read Altare considered this his best and now see why. 

Pichon Lalande 1986 - okay but seen better days. 

latour 2004 - i have mates who are fans of 2004. you could see why from this one but i suspect it is the best of the vintage.

Magnum of Yquem 1989 (i won this from a mate in a bet - and yes, he was there to share it). wonderful. a fantastic mature Yquem.

quinta do noval nacional 1960 - best of the nacionals i've seen (70 was another fave). i think it is also the oldest. a few from the 80s i think are overrated. okay but nothing close to the rep and price. this one was a beautiful mature port. just so close to perfect. 

not a bad day.

I installed a new ceiling fan in the new (to us) house last night, and treated myself to this afterwards.

You betcha! I don’t drink much rye straight except for older, overpriced stuff (my very last Sazerac 18 bought 15 years ago). Sazerac and Old Fashioned are my top 2 favorite cocktails.

The 105 is very good, but I must say I much prefer the Springbank, Tamdhu, Glendronach and Aberlour Cask Strength bottles over the Farclas.
