Folks, thanks for your patience today. We've just spent the last 10 hours battling gremlins on the server. Finger crossed we should be back online now. Connosr

How long is too long in a flask? I didn't finish all of what was in a flask tonight. How long can it stay in there before going "bad". It's a metal flask, stainless maybe. I remember it coming with something saying not to leave anything in it for a prolonged time.

I think it would be grest if users had the possibility to create group. Like regional group or favorite kind of whisky... For exemple, I would love to have a place where all the members from Montréal could discuss.

@ScienceMan, this is the sort of question that Connosr members like to answer. There are a number of responses to this question already posted under the discussion titled "Value Whisky".

I'm getting ready to go to Barbados on vacation! So I want to hit up the duty free store before leaving so I can have a nice bottle of scotch while I'm there. What's good there these days, any thing that found only in the duty free stories and nowhere else? Also does anyone have any rum suggestions once I get there? We plan on taking a tour of Mount Gay Rum, not my favorite, but we thought it would be cool to see the birth place of rum in many peoples minds. I've heard their "Extra Old" is scotch like (sorry to offend anyone). Thanks for your input.

I am looking to spend £50 odd ($80) for a quality scotch ,but there are too many choices in this price bracket. I have been looking at Springbank or Longrow,Highland Park,Bunnahabhain 18...etc, but just cant make up my mind...what have you had in this price bracket that you would highly recommend?

So, Chris Thile just won the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation fellowship grant and he was quoted as saying "A very small allocation will go to some incredibly nice liquor to enjoy with dearest friends and family and collaborators." So, what will it be? There was a lot of speculation at the Mandolincafe (www.mandolincafe.com) to what mandolin he would purchase with his newly found wealth that was put to rest with the Huffington Post article, but we may never know what the liquor was. Congratulations Mr. Thile! The link to the full article can be found at: huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/…

Another Uigeadailb question...

So, I like bourbons and heavily sherried scotch whiskies mainly, I like the saltiness of Oban, I'm fine with the smokiness of the Highland Park 12 &1. Would I like Ardbeg Uigeadail? My only experience with a heavily peated whisky is the Compass Box Peat Monster. It was too much for me at the time roughy 2 years ago. I have not had the Ardbeg 10 yet FYI. Being a huge fan of Aberlour A'bunadh (batch 34) I want some sherry with my peat. Thanks!

Gins to try would be: Bombay Sapphire, (A very popular gin to start with), G'vine (Juniper and grapes distilled together to produce an unorthodox gin. A very unique twist to a gin and tonic), Plymouth, (Quite the traditional and historical gin. It is believed the first written gin martini recipe had Plymouth Gin.

@AKGcandlefish

The tasting went great! It was just me and four other guys, one of whom had a casual familiarity with scotch, but the other three knew virtually nothing.

Not surprisingly, the most expensive whisky was also the most popular: the Balvenie 12 Single Barrel, but only by a hair. One of the drinkers wasn't ready for the Laphroaig's peat attack, but the other three loved it. It was a very close second. A surprisingly high rated third was the inexpensive Auchentoshan 12. I've always liked the Three Wood, but the 12 is nearly as good at a much lower price point. Absolutely worth having in stock.

The Springbank and Clynelish were enjoyed by all but didn't pop for any of us the way the other three did. I'll be doing individual reviews for each of these soon, so we'll see how they fair the next time around.

Have an HP12 bottle from which only 2-3 drams came out. Bought in April, by the end of May it had developed a nasty 'burnt tyre rubber' smell that overpowers anything on the nose.

Anybody had any similar experience? Is it to be expected? I bought a bottle for a friend from the same place and the Whisky in that smells fine.
