Balvenie 15 is nice.  I've got it right here.  How you tried Longmorn, Glenkeith, or Cardhu?  Not bad either.  Perhaps we should have a tasting.  When I had my first Laphroaig I fell in love with the heavy taste of peat.  Are there any others like that?  I haven't had a Laphroaig in a while--a person doesn't go through bottles much when drinking only a few drinks in a year.  I hope they didn't change it.

"La-Frog?"  That's funny.

Yes, Longmorn is a good one, but I haven't tried the others.  How about Dalwhinnie?  You'd probably like that one, too.

For me, it goes in cycles.  Some winters I can go through a lot of whisky, but I hardly touch the stuff in summer.  Then, it's gin time.   :D

I used to drink Laphroaig, but suddenly it started smelling too much like carbolic acid.  Now, every time I drink it I feel like I'm in an 18th-century operating room.

My favorite gin also happens to be from Scotland:  Hendricks.  Wonderful.


Laphroaig is simply THE whisky. Oban and Lagavulin follow quite swiftly, though.

If you like these, try Caol Ila.  Beautiful.

Eversince I spent a summer in Scotland back in '91, I've been very partial to the sherry scotches over the pets.  The only blendeds I can stand now are gold/blue label or famous grouse.

I would love to help with a tasting.

Cheers, but I'd prefer a "la-froyg" :)
*tries to think what else would be readily available at a decent price/quality ratio in the US*. Have you tried Talisker to go with that list?

Got a bottle of this lying around. Does that count?

Hmm... can't really afford to drink the bottles-of-choice, here (not whisky). Pretty much down to the "last one" of all the specials and they're now considered to be "investments" rather than something to drink and enjoy :(

Where was I... :roll:

Listing pic (the first of those shown) on this auction is kinda boring. However, scroll down...

G1, G2, G3, D1, D3, S2 all appear to be original shrink and pretty good condition (?)

Nice looking Eldritch (1st or 2nd print), but US only. Can't wait for someone to post a Canada only auction... :evil:

Guess someone should have bid on it. I let it slide because I have recently been on a buying tear and I have to get caught up on the selling end.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Because...?

:)

Sorry, I can't find anything that era/format/US print to compare with.

G1/2/3 looked pretty good for "originality"; from the "shape" of the shrink, peel-back at corner, price tag, etc.
D1/D3 looked at least half-OK.
Wasn't so sure on S2 and A1.

The seller's other items were kinda miscellaneous, but generally good condition. Couldn't see any indication why they should be trying to fake original SW, far less with slightly different characteristics for the old vs. newer stuff.


Oh, well, I guess people will be asking, anyhow ;)

Which sort, Stephen: paperback or hardback?
