Ive tried the Lagavulin 16

 

first of all , Im not much of a distilled drink person these day 

 

I will say this is an astonishing drink.

 

I mixed a ' dram ' of the whisky with a little bit of cold water

 

Ive been told that's what you do.

 

at about 1 unit of whisky and 1/2 unit of water , the alcohol burn receded 

 

and very fine whisky flavor remained 

 

it was a very enjoyable drink

 

no medicinal character at all.

 

that vein said , the ' finish ' remained for some time

 

I not sure when one should drink this.   clearly during the colder months

 

and probably not before a delicate filet of sole dinner.

 

very nice drink

This is a great whisky indeed. 

Also, it pairs well with a dark chocolate dessert 😉

Today I finally splurged a bit - and decided to buy this bottle that I've heard so many good things about but have never actually tried. Hope it was worth it:)

A bit of background. I am Canadian - and more specifically from Manitoba - which means all our liquor sales are governed by the province. This means our selection is pretty limited. That said, every now and then, they do special releases, (limited quantities). Over the weekend I went to my first ever limited release, and was really hoping to score a bottle of Weller 12. I've heard great things, and have also heard how hard they are to find (even in the USA).

I brought 2 friends of mine with me, because I assumed it would be a limit of 1 bottle per customer (which it was). Anyways, long story short, I was able to walk away with THREE bottles of Weller 12. I also snagged 2 Stagg Jrs (which i don't THINK are as rare...however we never get them up here so I am not sure). I also grabbed 2 bottles of E.H Single Barrel (again - we never get any E.H up here).

This may not be a huge deal for some of the American's on here - but I'm pretty excited...I think I'm going to have to make some trips down to the USA to try and find a few other good bottles we can't get up here.

I haven't opened any of them yet - as I am just getting over a cold, and want to be 100% when I crack em. What should I try first?
