I've not a head to head comparison. By itself it was very peaty and somewhat astringent. Rather like a "new" scotch. I have to pick up another bottle to see if that is really there, or it was a one off.

Tried my first bottle of Glenlivet 12. Very nice. I usually have a Cutty Sark or J&B in the house. I know, not high end stuff, but I like them.

Nice finds.

I went to the Costco liquor store yesterday and saw three real yummies:

Highland Park 18
Bruichladdich 18
Bruichladdich 1998 Olorosso

They were decent prices for their respective bottlings.


Hmmm...what to get...

Highland Park 18 & Laphroaig 15. I think Ardberg is next on the list, but I'm not sure yet.
