Ha, you've been too deep in the bourbon game with talk like that. It's not hard to find at all if you shop at stores with decent scotch selections. I think I saw some sitting on the shelf last time I went to my local Total Wine a few weeks ago. No need for hunting or paying premiums. It does seem to take some time to restock when it sells out, but it's always back on the shelf within a month or so. A phone call or two to find a store with some on the shelf should do the trick.

If you can find it (good luck), I've heard the Bruichladdich Black Art series of releases is amazing.


I have heard this as well and have only ever seen one bottle in person before about a year ago. I scoffed at the near $400 price on it back then too at that time but might reconsider it now.
I have a bottle of the Black Art 4.1 that I got from a restaurant owner that had to sell of some of his whiskey when the restaurants were shut down for Covid. It is by far the best scotch I've ever tasted. I'm not sure how the later releases compare, but I did see one of the newer releases (I think it was 8) at the Specs off of Brodie in south Austin just a few weeks ago.

Ok so I got a bottle of Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban last week for $49.99. Hell of a deal and a fantastic pour (or three) to boot. Finding out I like all the Glenmorangie offerings.

Nice, I usually feel like i get a good value buy with them.

Great choice. I've liked all the Glenmorangie stuff I've tried other than the Nectar D'or. That one was way too sweet for me.

Consistently good for their prices.

Smith Street specs in Houston had 4 bottles of Glendronach 21 Parliament just now. Nabbed one for the upcoming anniversary and will report back in a couple of weeks.

I'd be interested to hear about that one. I was deciding between that and a Glenmorangie Signet for a birthday bottle a couple months back, and went with the Signet at the end (great one btw!).

Been eyeballing this. How it is? Still haven't ventured much into smoked or peated territory but the local shop keeps trying to sell me on it.

It's pretty tasty. A little cigar taste, but not strong by any means. Just enough to let you know it's there.

Grabbed a second bottle of the Arrrrrrrdbeg! the other day and a bottle of Ardbeg Traigh Bhan Batch 2 last night.

Had my first glass of the the Laphroaig Cairdeas 200th Anniversary edition, need to have another dram for a proper tasting but the neck pour was mighty fine.

Quinta Ruban is the gateway drug to Scotch drinking.

Treat yourself to a bottle of Signet. Only scotch (I believe) that has toasted grains.

Yea, it is like the smooth chocolate milk shake of Scotches.

Poured this up last night. Absolutely fantastic scotch. Sherry forward but not a bomb. Super smooth and no heat even though bottled slightly hot. Finish lasted for days.

Has anyone tried this? I tend to like Port or Sherry casked Scotch, so this fits the bill.
Cromagnum

No. Please give us your take on it once you have. I also like port casked scotch.

Is this probably mostly marketing? Yes.
Do I still want to try it? Also yes.

Full disclosure, the Dalmore Port Wood Reserve is one of my favorite drams.

For the price, the Tomatin is a nice addition to the liquor cabinet. The first pour and taste was very alcohol forward, but after it opened up, it had a very think and buttery feel on the palate. Almost like a good chardonnay from a mouthfeel standpoint. After it breathed for a while, it opened up nicely and had a good finish. It would probably open up more with a drop of water or some ice, but I drink most of my Scotch neat. I'm not going to bore you with tasting notes, but if it came down to buying this again or the Dalmore, I'll choose the Dalmore any day. I picked up the Tomatin at Twin Liquor for ~$75, so its not a bad price point.

Now for something a little different: Holy Smokes malt whiskey from Big, Fat Pastor distillery in Colorado. It's a scotch-style whiskey that is very affordable and interesting. Nothing fancy, but enjoyable. Worth trying if you see it around.

Talisker did a tasting event online for the 43-year-old expedition oak. Here's a link to the pre-order.
