Not going to give a full review on this drop as many already have.

Suffice to say, HOWEVER, that I am having a dram right now as I do many a cold night after chopping wood out back for an hour or two...As such I thought i should mention that this is actually my "Old mate."

This is the one that never betrays me, is always there when I need him, seems endlessly ready to accompany me for a drink after dinner, and stands at the ready in my cabinet as duty dictates.

Gents, this is a soldier. A trooper at heart with fighting spirit and a sense of humor to boot.

Nothing less than a classic and the Colonel himself of tens.

When moses handed down the ten commandments, he should have appointed this young colonel to see them through.

He scores a 91 from me on sheer drinkability and pure output to say the least. A whisky drinkers best friend and as I said, my "Old mate."

To the colonel of tens...We who are about to drink you, salute you.

Ah, another whisky reviewer who has a way with words. I share your sentiment, although I'm not as adept with the written lingo (not being a native speaker). Well, said, CW!

CW, your review is most excellent put and said. My personal addition to this conversation is, this "Old Mate" is wonderful complement with good to fine premium cigar. I speak of personal experience. The two soothe the soul and offer up the best enjoyments, other than my wife of course. And if I may also add, the "Old Mate" is good for anytime during the day. Thank you CW for review, here here!
