Highland Park 25 Year Old Tasting

Wow this just blows all the other HPs I've tried away. Big big favor and nice dark color. Despite what the HP taster says after the first sip it is not that hot/painful and becomes quite delightful.

Thanks TL for picking up the thread.

Love the Japanese whiskies but they have gotten so expensive the last couple years. Some have more than double/tripled even if you can get them. The Nikka 21 is my favorite. Some times use coffee beans to clear the nose. ;-) ;-)

dekanta.com is my favorite source/look up for Japanese whiskies.

No, I wasn't suggesting that. I did suggest a different simile first, but the mods decided it was too incendiary even for politics ;-)

You Mod vet your posts? or did something disappear? har… ;-) ;-)

Ooooh one has a tasting room does one? And cases of Bollinger no less. Hope they are in the fridge.

The wife held wine tastings for her wine business back in the day. Love those owner/employee discounts. The Bollinger has been passed on to the loo long ago. If you noticed in photo the room has a chiller and is kept cool. Wife is into champagne and vintage Grand Anne is her favorite and I get her one on her birthday every year. I prefer a Paul Roger Churchill myself.

Just pulled the trigger on another Bushmills 21, one of my all time favorites. Love that triple cask.

I use to live in Denham, Bucks from '64 to '67. My local was the Green Man in Denham. They try here but they just don't have pubs/locals like you folks have. Visited again in 2000.

The wife was in the wine industry. It is basically her chiller/tasting room setup. That's 25+ years of corks, a little over 4K. She can recycle them for money when she decides too.

A lot of my tawny bottles are painted. We recycle everything but glass. They say they have more glass than they can use.

I collected tawny port bottles but I chuck the whisky bottles. I would but they do not recycle glass here.

Your alcohol bill must be a bit high :-))

You only turn 65 once. wink wink

Gassing the bottles I was able to nurse them for about six months.

I thought the white was terrible stuff.

A flight of 40's for 65th birthday tasting. Agree Cockburns tastes like Australian port, raisins with seeds. wink wink I'd say the same for Sandeman but their 40 year old was a surprising delight.


After the tawny run I started a bottle quest. This was the first bottle row.


Currently working a Macallan Trilogy.
