That, Sir, is the right question. It's Friday evening and I'm settling down with my current fave, a Yamazaki SMWS bottling.

I'm going to open my bottle of Ardbeg TEN .... It's yelling 'Open me, open me, open me' for a week now ...

Ten. What a classic dram!

Hmmm ... the Ardbeg will have to wait ... just took a Glennkinchie Distilers Edition ...
Just been for a walk, tempted by an afternoon Ardbeg while I go through the Sunday newspaper.... close to bliss.

I think tonight I'll have a couple of Bunnahabhain 12 year olds. Opened the bottle before xmas but it's taken a back seat to some other malts, time for it to be enjoyed!

Really nice - love it. Very fresh, light caramel flavours, slightly nutty tones in the finish. Plenty of character still.
Just picked up The Balvenie 15, cask 737, simply amazing, especially the nose! Lots of vanilla, fresh fruit, honey, floral notes, and a slight oak.
Picked up a bottle of Highland Park 15, so will be enjoying a sniff of that later today.
I'll stick with a Glenfiddich 12. Easy going, doesn't need too much work, and a nice contrast to the godawful weather.
@jacksonj04 good call it's Friday! I'm driving home with a bottle of Macallan 10 in the boot. If I can get it past the wife I might try one tonight. Before or after dinner what do we think?
@Piero Good solid whisky Macallan 10. I'd go before dinner :)
Thinking about picking up something Rye on the way home. Then again, I have some bottles that are getting dusty and lonely.
Actually... It's been a glass of home brewed beer, and maybe a sip of Bunnahabhain 12 soon. mmm

Balvenie Double Wood, after a truly succulent Taylor Fladgate 20-Year Tawny Porto (gift from a friend). Variety is the spice of life.
Savouring the clean smokiness of a Caol ila 18 y/o this evening. Have been chilling listening to a few choice tracks and now dropping by my new favourite website. Very pleased to have found this community (my highlight of 2010 so far!).
Hi to @ahargreaves, who just joined. Well balanced cabinet you've got there :)
I'm all out of stock at the moment. ;o( The last drop being a lovely Glenfarclas 105.
@Lee: all out of stock? How can that be? Poor man. I'd sooner be out of shorts than out of dram. Enjoying a wee bit of Macallan 10 Year Old Fine Oak while preparing dinner.
just had some Dimple Pinch, which I greatly enjoyed, when are we going to include blends on this site?
@markjedi1 I did well at christmas - had everything listed in My Cabinet. But my love for the dram reduced it to a windswept cavern devoid of life. I added the occasional blend to keep me going but now they've gone and pay day is next week! So now I'm drinking coffee.
Gentlemen, tonight for the first time it's a Talisker 1998 Distillers Edition. I feel blessed.
@Lee, so what will you be getting, come payday? @Piero, good man! I've not had that Talisker. Was it good?
@markjedi1 I'd like to try something different, perhaps something really smokey as it's an area I've previously avoided. Any suggestions? Or something with bite?
@Lee, if you want something smokey, I guess you would need to go Islay. But if it's your first Islay, I would suggest a Bunnahabhain, Bowmore or Ardbeg Blasda. Those are the lightly peated ones. Peat is something you have to grow into, I think.
@markjedi1 and @Lee, not necessarily... It all started for me with a 8y old Laphroaig which was a real powerhouse. I instantly fell in love with its unconventional taste and raw power. If you're up to it: try out the Laphroaig 10y Cask Strength. On the other hand you could certainly try out a lagavulin, the 12y or the 16y. You should at least have tasted these once in your life...
@markjedi1 the Talisker has become an instant favourite. Its a really great marraige of smoky peat with sweet sherry notes. Worth every penny.
No Jean-Luc, it is not the right question. I think "what are you 'tasting' now", would be even better. Really, as long as I have exposed myself to whisky, I never drank it.
