I had to look up OTT.
In response I looked up the script for an episode of Are you Being Served. The source I found is in all caps, sorry for that. I am not 'shouting'. haha
"FROM THE D.M./C.R.
TO F.W./L. AND
G.D./ S.P. RE: TEA."
CAPTAIN PEACOCK, WHAT
LANGUAGE ARE YOU SPEAKING?
IT SIMPLY MEANS, MRS. SLOCOMBE,
"FROM THE D.M. STROKE C.R..."
THE DEPARTMENTAL MANAGER
STROKE CUTHBERT RUMBOLD.
"TO THE F.W. STROKE L.
AND G.D. STROKE S.P..."
TO FLOORWALKERS STROKE LADIES'
AND GENTLEMEN'S DEPARTMENT
PEACOCK REGARDING TEA.
WHAT DOES "T" STAND FOR?
IT DOESN'T STAND FOR
ANYTHING. YOU DRINK IT.
THEY USE THESE
INITIALS TO SAVE TIME.
IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE
WORKING VERY WELL, DOES IT?
IT WOULD IF PEOPLE DIDN'T
KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS.
PEOPLE WOULDN'T NEED TO, IF THEY
KNEW WHAT YOU WERE RABBITTING ON ABOUT.
IF I MAY BE ALLOWED TO
CONTINUE, MRS. SLOCOMBE.
OH YES, P.C.O.
I BEG YOUR PARDON?
"PLEASE CARRY ON."

@ajjarrett I still have a bottle set aside. It's being saved for a Glenlivet vertical...

@YakLord drink too much of it and it will be a Glenlivet horizontal...
@Nozinan I participated in a virtual tasting over summer, hosted by Andrew Ferguson of Kensington Wine Market...what I didn't know was that all six whiskies were cask strength...I was definitely a bit buzzed by the end, even with 1/2oz pours...
@talexander Yes, that’s the one. Thanks for the reply. I’ll see if I can find your review. Doesn’t sound like it’s in the same league as the 16.
@ajjarrett “....I went a bit OCD.” A bit? Haha. Totally understandable, it’s excellent stuff. I’m down to my last bottle and a half.
Here is some unsoliticed advice. You might want to ration it. You never know when you will 'need' it.

@ajjarrett Thank you for that, sir. You are my Nadurra mentor.
I guess it is too expensive: this bottle of Ardbeg 25 yo, 46%.Great news anyway. It will be added to the core range. The link contains notes of the nose,taste and finish.

Sorry for the late reply...
As your mentor, I will refer to my 'master' and write, "Do or do not, there is no try." This truly applies to quality malts.
Decided to have a holiday dinner w family as we felt that the risk was small relative to the reward.
During the dinner we opened a Clynelish 14 YO First Editions. Always been a fan of the distillery and although it is a fine dram, I was not brought to my knees (in fairness, only let the bottle sit for an hour before pouring). Initial impression was apple loaf w malt undertones and a very nice-color to it.
Confident that it will get better as time passes although the cork was broken so have it stored in a mason jar and intend to finish sooner rather than later (currently learning the intricacies of Arkham Horror LCG & can see having some drams while cross-referencing - looks like a great game & excited to delve into it).
We also opened a 2020 Booker's that I received as a Xmas gift. Still my go-to everyday bourbon but did not compare well to the Four Roses 125th Anniversary bottle that we finished over a game of Terraforming Mars.

@JayRain Hopefully the Booker's is > 60% to help protect you from the risk of COVID...

@JayRain, Four Roses 125th Barrel Proof Ltd Ed is one of my top picks. I find a drop of water takes it from a 93 point bourbon to a 96. Beautiful whisky!

@paddockjudge unfortunately finished and at its current price point will never be in my stable again.
I can see how it would benefit the whiskey though

Opened a Longrow Peated @ 46% to bring in the New Year.
Too early to tell but think that I will like this one a lot
Happy New Year to all,
