The nose is what makes it, IMHO.
On this high quality ice cream float recommendation, I picked up a bottle. Coledoggy and I are sampling it as we speak. Man...this stuff is something else. I am hugely impressed. Sweet with a hint of vanilla. Great choice Uro!

^^ can't go wrong with that. I've got their 12 & 21 on the shelf and it's a staple. I've always got a bottle of that on hand.

I just got invited by Balvenie for a tasting in Chicago. 2 hours of free scotch is a wonderful thing. They book a restaurant, fill it with invitee's and pour their whole line-up as well as some food.

I've had the good fortune to be on their list for a bit now and it's always a great night out...

I'm going out to San Fran mid May for my brother's 30th. I would love to surprise him with a delicious 30 year (1982). Does anyone have any favorites? Suggestions? Looking at something under $400.00. I was looking at BenRiach 30yr, MacPhails Collection 30yr Tamdhu, Glenfiddich 30yr, Gordon & MacPhail Strathisla 30yr, Talisker 30yr, Glenfarclas Family Cask 1982 - 56% Alc.

Hoping someone can steer me in the right direction!

I've done the same at Macallan's tasting events. VERY small drams. You might get one full pour the entire night. Nevertheless, it's a nice event.

Oooh, nice. I tried it following Robert's (RVL Saratoga's) recommendation and really enjoyed it too:

All the more reason threads like these must continue.

All the best,

No one with any 30yr recommendations? Would truly be appreciated!

Sorry, I've not drank more than a dram or two of whisky aged for that long, so don't know really anything noteworthy or helpful about whisky at that level. Good luck!

All the best,
Andrew.

While I haven't had any of their 30yr, Gordon & McPhail is quite a good purveyor. Really a buyer, ager and bottler, I suppose. I've been very pleased with anything I bought from them, and they've been reasonably priced. I can't recall what I paid, but I bought a 21yr Macallan from them, which was considerably lower in price than Macallan's own offering.

Yeah, that is what I've gathered. The only GM I've had was the 8yr from Highland Park. A very light, easy drink. I bet that 21yr Macallan was delicious! I just had some Old Pultney 21yr, it was something else. Very unusual for my palate. Almost a salty characteristic to it.

The search continues.

"Hundred Whiskies" menu. Every time I've been there they've had a special selection as well.
