1985/32 12 Aged Years Rare Cask Series Bourbon: Hidden Glory 1982

Aged 32 years not 12 as noted above. Caramelized salted butterscotch, roasted pear, brine and smoke. Sound of whispering angels. Best sip of 🥃 I ever had. 🙏 Bro. — 14 days ago

Aged 16 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

A wee dram for the last night at the Hawaii house. So many great bottles shared over ten years, recorded by the bowl of corks seen in the photo. I hope the new owner doesn’t drink Napa cab here after I’m gone.. — a month ago

#6 tasting. It might have been the best. Certainly the peat was more balanced. — 9 days ago

Aged 23 Years Port Cask Matured Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

6th and final of the night. Please. Now that the pre-flight tasting is over we start the wine ;) 2nd if the peats. It’s got smoke but I have changed over the years and started to really like that. This is really good. Drink all night? No. This is a great finish to the tasting and to be clear stuck with me for a while. — 22 days ago

5th in the tasting. First of the peat. Really nicely done. Not overly peaty. FYI supposedly the 12 is as good at a better price. Craziest thing I heard? Try the Nikka 21 with sushi. Not sure how we got here and on this topic but I think it was due to the peat/no peat differences. This is one that Start said he always has for company. He also called out the Macallan 25 and Reflection (not a house whiskey obviously but there for special occasions). I noted I need to come over more often! I’m rating higher due to the hint of peat. — 22 days ago

Aged 8 Years 200th Anniversary Limited Edition Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2016

Less refined than the 16? Sure. But such a treat to smell and taste all the other elements that make Lagavulin so great and distinctive with less of a cask influence. — 2 months ago
