@Robert99 I will have to check if you reviewed any of these since you got them. Out of the four, I must say that I am a big fan of the Benromach 10 100. Just the right level of peat working in concert with the Speyside characteristics.

I was inspired by @Mancub to pop into the LCBO and grab these two new limited releases. I'm most excited to try Dissertation, but will go for One Fifty tonight in order to post some impressions in that other thread. Dissertation will have to wait until tomorrow.

@Nelom Hey, nice acquisitions! Please don't rush things along on my account, though I do greatly appreciate hearing your insight! That bottle is just a week shy of my brother-in-laws birthday. Pretty neat. Being 20 though he only drinks light beer and vodka mixed drinks, hah! Enjoy and thanks for posting :)

@Mancub No worries on hurrying anything along. Any excuse to buy and drink whisky is a good one. I've posted my thoughts in the other thread.
@Nozinan I thought that odd also but read at breakingbourbon how the barrels were stored differently (gentler temperature and humidity range) so there was less for the angels apparently. Would love to get a taste of that.
Just got the Glengoyne 12yo and 18yo this weekend. I already have the 15yo.
@Mancub I resent that lol. I'm 23.
@casualtorture When did you start drinking sipping whisky?
@casualtorture Good one! Have you picked up anything new recently?
@Nozinan 21st birthday. Highland Park 12, after that revelation I then went out and bought a bottle of Glenlivet 12 and Ardbeg 10. It's gone from there the last 2 years.
@ajjarrett Not really. Heading back to the states in July or August so I need to drink what I have. It's hard to collect when you're on the move across borders.
@casualtorture Well, I would suggest if you can locate difficult to find to impossible to find whiskies there, bring them back with you. Setting that aside, I look forward to seeing the new whiskies you will get when you return to the US.
@ajjarrett Yeah I'm looking forward to getting more into American whiskey when I get back. I may not open my Arran 18 limited edition and take it back with me since it's fairly low numbers. Everything else is already opened haha
Some independent, single cask, cask strength bottlings of whisky:
A bottle of the 1991 Cambus 25 Year Old, single grain whisky that has been wholly matured in a sherry butt (no. 62929). Bottled by Whiskybroker.
A couple of bottles of the 1997 Glenrothes 19 Year Old, single malt whisky that has been wholly matured in a sherry butt (no. 15404). Bottled by the Whiskybase to commemorate the 90,000th whisky entry to the database.

A gift from the generous folks at High West when I visited yesterday
Complete with Jackalope logo.
As for High West Bourye, I like it a lot...but it is absurd to allege that adding a US rye to a US bourbon gives one something unusual-- the result is still **either* a bourbon or a rye, depending upon whether the combined rye content rests above or below 51%.

These 2 just arrived today with my boss from the land of SM Whisky, Calgary, Alberta

@Astroke I've always been curious about the Portonova. Have you had it before?
@nooch no, I have not, but I am a huge fan of the IS, Bourbon cask and the Fusion. I am planning to try this tonight or tomorrow night.
@Victor I agree but as you say that doesn't stop it being delicious!
@Astroke Nice catch - what is the batch number of the Portonova? Until a couple of years ago I could still find batch 1 in Calgary.
@Nozinan , batch 6
@nooch Well I can safely state that Portnova (batch 06) is incredible, what a nose after 20 min of sitting. Took 1 1/2 hours to finish the 1.5 oz pour. On par with Amrut IS IMO.
Busy 2 days, just completed a trade for this ADL Rye bomb for my 2013 OFBB. This Rye has returned to where it belongs

Some whisky to add to the collection:
a bottle of the SMWS 3.262 'Medicine for the Soul', a Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottling of cask strength Bowmore that has been aged for 19 years in an ex-bourbon cask.
an older bottling of 1995 Mortlach 17 Year Old by independent bottlers: Duncan Taylor for the first batch of their Dimensions range.

Nikka Covfefe Grain
I was terrified of these disappearing before I got to try one so I bought a bottle a week ahead of schedule.

@OdysseusUnbound would love to pick up a bottle of Wiser's Dissertation, shame our acccess to Canadian whisky is so limited in the U.K.

@jeanluc this is one worth getting your hands on... If you have plans of visiting Ontario in the foreseeable future you might find someone willing to buy and hold one for you...
