@Astroke Very good policy there, mate. Just be sure you don't accidentally put whisky in the baby bottle.

@RianC I came close with a bottle of Compass Box Flaming Heart when I picked it up by the top of the tube. It has a lid that is around 3 inches long which came off in my hand. Just managed to grab it as it was heading for ceramic tile floor.

@Astroke good policy for precious cargo
@BlueNote I wrote a review of the whisky shortly after... “Never pour angry....”

Something cask strength.
I’m currently sitting in a meeting of my professional association discussing how meetings of our organization should be run.
@Nozinan Oh my. A meeting about meetings! Give this man a drink

@Nozinan Would your meeting be going like this:
@Astroke don’t be silly. That got resolved in less than 2 minutes. If only...
No Kilkerran 8 for me. Sold out by the time I decided to pop for one. Next time it comes up on sale I'll be a little quicker off the mark.

This one has cast a spell on me. Intriguing, I think about this one throughout the day. Beguiling, does not hit as hard as it’s 66.9% abv. Enticing, M...O...R...E... This is a once-in-a-decade whiskey.

@paddockjudge What the heck is it?

@BlueNote, it is bottled by Sazerac in Montreal, that is where they keep the good stuff before it hits the trade routes. Mister Sam is a blend of Sazerac’s finest American whiskey and Canadian whisky.... some of Sazerac’s best (BTAC style) whiskies go into this one. Only 1200 bottles in this first edition.
@paddockjudge I’m guessing that would be Mister Sam Bronfman?

Van Winkle 10: 129$ just seemed ike too much for the same bottle I paid half for a few years ago. I'd rather splurge on Springbank CS or Octomore.It wasn't an easy decision!
@BlueNote, indeed a tribute to Mister Sam Bronfman..... who owned just about everything whisky, and many more things, during the sixties and seventies.

@Jonathan You could have picked it up and traded it for 2 Springbank 12 CS's and then some. Amazed that you saw it on a shelf.

@Astroke, funny you should ask.....
.....At the Young and Feisty tasting, hosted by @fiddich1984, we had a wee sip of Mister Sam.
@paddockjudge A wee sip? Looks like you boys sipped that sucker dry.
I’m not drinking any Loch Lomond Croftengea this Friday happy hour. It seems to be caught up in the Christmas shipping schmozle between ZYN and my house.
@BlueNote, no, no, no, the group was overly polite. Only a small portion of the freshly opened bottle number two was consumed. The empty is bottle number one. That got drained quickly by me and a few friends.
@paddockjudge Thousands wouldn’t, but I believe you.
@Astroke that thought crossed my mind. I “won the lottery” at my liquor store, but made a mistake by saying “any van winkle” as first choice. I liked but didn’t love the first bottle I had at 55 or so, and the mark up from the now suggested BT price seemed silly (from 70 to 129$), given that I have had much better bottles for 129$. I didn’t want to buy a bottle that I wouldn’t want to drink at that price, and what I could get for Old Rip 10 is up in the air. I’ll probably ask here before turning the offer down.
I have never seen or heard of Glen Forest. I saw it while paying the bill at a restaurant in Mizpeh Ramon.
I will probably never taste it either.
This isn’t a whisky trip, though I hope to visit the milk and honey distillery in 2 days. Any whisky tasted is a bonus.
Went to see Guy Ritchie's "The Gentlemen" at the movies the other night. Great movie very much like "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" which I loved. Had some serious product placement featuring Glenfarclas. Gave me a hankering for some 'farclas after they demolished more than one bottle of 1976 40 year old. Shame I don't have a single bottle of Glenfarclas in my stash

3 versions of Ardmore. I was planning on cracking the next sample bottle from the Advent calendar and contrasting with a mini I bought in Calgary and a sample from @cricklewood. But a flat tire, dog responsibilities and grade 6 French put a stop to that. Now it's too late and tomorrow I'm on call and Friday is Lunar new year dinner with my bother's family... Maybe Saturday.

@Nozinan I don't remember passing along this Ardmore sample but glad it will eventually be part of some sort of vertical tasting. If the planetd align

The Ontario government crumbled today in its conflict with Ontario Teachers, Parents and Students. The fight is far from over but a major battle has been won!
If I had any, I would be toasting @odysseusunbound and his colleagues, celebrating their strength and sacrifice for the greater good with Teacher’s Highland Cream.
If I hadn’t had young radish Kimchi with dinner, I might toast them with something else, but my palate is shot for tonight.

@Nozinan I’m not holding my breath. There has been nothing put forward by the government in writing. And #LyingLecce has proven that truth doesn’t matter to him....which is shocking coming from a politician, I know. For those not up to date on the finer points of education in Ontario, suffice to say that our minister of education has made claims that are easily disproven by anyone with even a superficial knowledge of how the system actually works...which the (private school-educated) minister doesn’t seem to possess. And the cherry on top is that this privileged, private-schooled 32 year old who has no work experience outside of politics, who has never worked in education in any capacity, who has no children of his own, keeps claiming that not enough emphasis is placed on “merit” in the hiring practices outlined by the current contract and legal framework. /rant over...
