@fiddich1980 Agreed. In fact, IMHO, one of the best blends around theses days. I'm on my third bottle.

@fiddich1980 Thanks, it’s good to be home and over the jet lag. All in all it was a pretty good trip. A bit too much driving though. We managed to put 2400 miles on the gutless little Citroen rental car.
The only distilleries we visited this time were all the major Islay ones, Arran and Deanston.
Caol Ila, and Kilchoman both have beautiful new visitor centres. Here are a couple of pics of the new Kilchoman visitor centre.
As we only took carry on luggage this time, I was not able to bring back any interesting distillery only offerings, but I did get to taste a few. Had to make do with a bottle of Talisker Dark Storm from the duty free at Gatwick.

Here’s the other pic.
The Arran Distillery has a very nice visitor centre, too.

Abraham Bowman Bourbon 17 yo, 73.75% ABV., bottled May 11, 2012. This completes my second bottle of this beautiful stuff.
Time to open my third and penultimate bottle of it so that I can bottle up a sample of it for @bwmccoy.to take home after his planned visit to see me next week. @Nock you are certainly welcome to take a sample of it too if you wish..

@Nock self-control is a virtue.
Talisker 18. A whisky that ticks all the boxes for me but I won't be buying anymore at the new price (from £75 to +£180 in the UK) and the new packaging is dreadful.
Luckily I have a few in the stash ...

@RianC You lucky devil! I haven’t seen a bottle in several years.

One of my top ranked whiskies, I have a spare.

Not finished, by the strictest definition, but have 'donated' the last fifth or so of a Glenlivet 12 Illicit Still and Baron de Sigognac 20 Armagnac to my Mother in law.
She's been really helpful of late but doesn't drink all that much but I do know she likes a brandy. She'd also tasted the armagnac prior and really liked it. She's not a whisky fan, per se, but I thought she'd like the fruity aspect of the 'livet, which she did so I gave her the rest of the bottle.
Win win as she gets a few wee treats to sip and I clear space to open more bottles
