While studying has caused by whisky-enjoying to suffer recently, I hope to get back on track soon!

@cask_strength

have been on the west coast for business the past two weeks; no new scotches to add to the list, esp. due to the prices that I saw. For example, $92 US for a glass of Macallan 25. Really? You can get the entire bottle for $250 US! outrageous.

Interesting story on the NPR site about Whisky from the 1909 Shackleton Antartic expedition npr.org/templates/story/…

Not sure who will get to taste it.

I'm going to be in London this Saturday. I'll be visiting the Olympia exhibition center. Any dram shops in the vicinity that I could visit?

Got a reference to Kessler's Whiskey, as a drink that made a young lad turn away from whiskey's forever. I'll have to test it out!

Planning a trip to Speside. Hey folks, what do I have to visit? What to taste? Which bottle to add to my collection?

@Jonas-Pothelm I've not been but I think Glenfarclas would be worth a visit. Their 15 year old is a cracking whisky.

I keep reading about how good the 'farclas 15yr is... is it really that good? Is it a sherry bomb or something completely different?

@Piero: some of my personal favourites in this price range are Mannochmore 1990 18 years old, the Caperdonichs 1972 by Duncan Taylor (there are several), Ardbeg Corryvreckan, Lagavulin Distiller's Edition or Talisker 20yo.

@markjedi1 Be careful about those bordeaux finishes. I've tasted a few and none one of them was very good. The Auchentoshan Chateau Montrose finish by Malts of Scotland was pretty awful. Glenmorangie Signet was beautiful whisky though.

@GhostWorks - I left a comment on your HP 12 review page with a couple of suggestions before you start using the HP 12 as a firestarter. Let us know how it goes for you!

I'm becoming a bit of a fan of the Lark Distillery - they are starting to produce some really decent drams and when you can drop down to their bar where they offer a tasting of four different vintages for $12AU, it certainly doesn't hurt. They can be a bit up and down (avoid the LD72 at all costs - it's nasty), but seeing as the Lark Distillery is starting to expand production and look at wider markets, it's leading the Australian whisky industry, so hopefully you gents will start seeing their products over the next few years.

@jdcook They sound really interesting and it must be nice to have a distillery on your doorstep. I'm going to be adding a World Whisky category so I'll get them featured.

@Jean-Luc - Just added the 'farclas 15yr to my wish list using your new feature. Very cool! Thanks.

@Jean-Luc - I'm keen to try the LD100 - it was awarded the 'Best Other Single Malt Whisky (No Age)' in the World Whisky Awards 2009. Also the LD39 was awarded the best Australian whisky by the Malt Whisky Society of Australia. I've had the LD39 - it was a smoky, peaty beauty. I really want to try the LD100. Keep an eye out for them, they are looking at increasing their presence in other markets, particularly Europe.

Today, the 2.750 full bottles of Duvel Distilled were released (only 50 cl though) and they completely sold out in less than 2 hours. I was unable to get hold of one, as were four of my friends who were in line at the brewery/distillery this morning. Pity. I'll have to cherish my miniature. Less than an hour later, the first bottle turned up on eBay of course. Priced at 1.500 EUR (50x what the buyer paid little over an hour earlier). Go figure.

Jean-Luc, wouldn't it be better to disable the "write reviews" section if you're not logged in? I guess nobody really wants to write reviews anonymously anyway, and I've mistakenly published some reviews while being logged out...
