Last night i bade farewell to my bottle of Mortlach SMWS 76.79 Sherry Fusion, it's lasted well but the allure of the bottle proved too much to resist in the end!

Just squeezed the last drop out of the Laphroaig Quarter Cask, lasted me about 2 months. Really good daily dram. One more bottle in the tube, shall save that for a while more...

Gonna uncork the 18yo first... Cant wait.

I just finished my second last bottle of LOTI .. I didn't mean to open it .. really .. but it seemed like such a good idea at the time ... it had been sitting unopened for five years (silently taunting me). Lovely whisky.. I can only hope that Ardbegs new incarnation can put out something similar in 5 or 7 years time.

Our local Spirits store had a close out on Auchentoshan 3 wood, so I polished off the bottle I had sitting about with friends. It was marvelous after dinner.

Just killed my Talisker 10. It has been a great companion and it will be dearly missed. Soon to be replaced with a Springbank 10.

Polished off a bottle of single cask Teaninich the other day, wonderful old whisky. It'll be missed but looking on the bright side, it gives me an excuse to break out something special next time I'm dramming.

@beduffboy Just chiming in so you don't feel like the only bourbon drinker out there. Had a little Four Roses Single Barrel before dinner tonight. Still a couple of sips left. Love that bottle and, like you, I feel there are so many options yet to explore. Looking forward to the Knob Creek Single Barrel at barrel proof and some Rowan's Creek. (Got this "creek" thing going on, it seems.)

Balvenie 15-year single barrel. Sad to see it go.

My last bottle of Scotch was the always yummy Mannochmore Loch Dhu 10 yo. Black as pitch with strong notes of prune juice and a dash of ashes and balsamic vinegar…delicious!

It's been a tough winter in Boston, so the final drops of my Macallan 18, 17 Fine Oak, and Oban 14 have recently been poured. Replaced by Glenfarclas 17, Glenrothes 1994 and.....Oban 14 (too reliable).

A bottle of Glenlivet 15. Sad to see it go. Grew to enjoy it with time.

Last night, I finished my Auchentoshan Three Wood. We had a little ceremony :) Anyway, it should be replenished at the first chance I get.

The night before last i saw the end of my standard bottle of Connemara Peated, very impressed with it for what is a fairly generic bottling.

The black armband went on tonight to pay respect to the passing of my first- but certainly not last- bottle of Clynelish 14. A true Highland gem. The bottle will be esorted to the recycling bin by a lone piper.

I finished my bottle of Macallan 12 last night. It will be missed, but I'm looking forward to shopping around for another highland malt to fill its place.

Finished my Balvenie Doublewood not long ago. But I'm not too down-hearted as I have a newly acquired HP 12 to enjoy and an as yet unopened Old Pulteney 12 to look forward to. I am however eyeing up an HP 18 to add to the shelf.

The last bottle i finished was the Bunnahabhain Darach Ur. Picked it up at Frankfurt airport. Descent dram, good value for the money. Now I'm currently on the AnCnoc 12. Not decided yet what to think of it... it's.... complex.

Last weekend a pair of highly esteemed friends- Glenfarclas 15 and Old Pulteney 17- slipped this mortal coil and headed to the great distillery in the Sky. They will be sorely missed. Ahhh. 'Tis better to love and to lose than never to love..

Finished off my last bottle of Ardbeg ANB.

I've read that the ANB has been discontinued and is becoming harder to find. Do any of you know when and if they will re-introduce the ANB? Also, my liquor shop guy said that they've only got 7 bottles of the ANB left at $89.99usd/ea. Is that a fair pricing?

@whiskyshiba, I am guessing that at this point, particularly in the US, it will be quite difficult to find sources of the Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist offered for sale at much, if any, of a lower price than the $ 89.99 US you have been quoted. If there is serious worldwide economic decline in the next couple of years the prices of all malts will likely come down. But, if that occurs scarce specialty Scottish whiskies will likely become more scarce in general and may become available almost exclusively only in the UK. Bottom line: if I wanted some more ANB very badly right now I would do my best search of potential available sources and if I found none other, I would probably pay the $90/bottle. My back up plan would be to buy one or two bottles at that price while doing more looking and investigating for supplies at a lower price.

@Victor, Thank you for that info. Even the larger liquor stores don't carry the ANB. And my local, small liquor shop won't have anymore after the 7 bottles. I guess I'd better pick those up asap. I thought that like Talisker and their 18YR, Ardbeg just cuts the supply to increase demand. Just a guess.

I also did a little research on Whisky prices in the shops during the '08-'09 Great Recession. Even while Diageo, Pernod Ricard, Fortune Brand, LVMH, etc were hitting all time lows on the DJIA, whisky prices remained stable and at '08 levels. Do any of you remember any huge price mark-downs on the mid to high priced whiskies? I don't, and in LA, NY, Chicago prices remained stable. So, even if there's a drop in Markets and the economy, I think whisky prices will likely remain at current levels.

Two more bottles to the Whisky Walhalla: Mackmyra Swedish Single Malt and the Bruichladdich X4 Spirit. I was kinda fond of the X4.

It was brief, but welcome - on Thursday night I finished off the last of the half-bottle of Glengoyne Burnfoot that I picked up at Heathrow. Not a world-stopping dram, but it was definitely very drinkable.

Very odd to drink whisky out of a plastic bottle, though.
