What’s in your glass, under glass, behind the glass? Share your stories and musings… rants are permitted, lol. Tell us about your next purchase from an Indy bottler or something that has struck your fancy or tickled your innards.

@paddockjudge Have been considering a Gordon Mcphail Connoisseurs choice Highland Park 16 year cask strength for $178 Cad.

Recently picked up a Ben Nevis 1997 First Editions refill sherry, is so good I picked up a backup before they sold out. $229 Cad for a 23 year cask strength was a steal in this case. I have been buying IB's for quite some time now, used to be always Nova Scotia but their selection has gone south so like most I look to the west where IB's seem to be everywhere.

The story behind the Ben Nevis 23 yr Refill Sherry purchase was @RianC described this very bottleing without ever knowing it existed in a comment. I posted a link to him based on his description and then decided why not take a chance on it myself. So now I own 2 and owe it all to @RianC and his description of a desirable SM..

It's all about community. A friend put me on to the Single Cask Nation bottlings. So far I have had the Teaninich 13, a Glen Elgin 11(?) and a Westport 16 (Glenmo CS), all first rate.

Distilleries which do not produce an official regular core range bottling tend to catch my eye when bottled by independent bottlers. A few which I look for are Longmorn, Dialuaine, Clynelish, Benrinnes, and closed distilleries.
