    Nice, I was given this for my 30th birthday last year.
    I was agonising about whether to open it or not for a few months but I caved. Amazing, gorgeous whisky.

    My most recent interesting purchases are a bottle of Big Peat (after seeing it in this thread a while back) and some Starward Solara Cask.

    I love Islay single malts, but the Big Peat is just too "refined" for me. It's exactly what it says on the bottle - big peat flavours, but there's nothing to back it up and balance it out. I've been using it 50/50 in an old fashioned with some Monkey Shoulder as straight I'm finding it a bit too one dimensional.

    Two bottles of the Starward Solara Cask are on their way after I tried a nip at Old Faithful last week. Ended up sitting eating my dinner and ordering a couple bottles on my phone, great complexity and nice residual sweetness.

    I still haven't found anything that can compete with this for value

    https://www.nicks.com.au/glenfarclas...-whisky-1000ml

    1 litre of cask strength goodness, amazingly tasty and a ridiculous bargain.

    My current favourite is Octomore 7.1
    Also really enjoying rye whiskey lately. Knob creek 100 proof, and Hudson Manhattan rye. Little bit of spice in it for something different.

    Got stuck into an international variety last Sunday.

    Had never tried the Kavalan before; it's Taiwanese and incredibly tasty. Very different.

    If you can find / afford the Yamazaki 18, it's one of the finest I've ever had the fortune to try.

    Would love my collection to look like that!!

    Some big flavors there, how'd you find the Ardbeg? Love the Limeburners too, quite pricy but a beautiful drop!

    The Ardbeg Dark cove was a little sweet and lacked the usual depth of Arbeg when i first opened my bottle.

    But a couple of weeks later the iodine and seaweed showed well with the sweetness from the bourbon casks.

    I really liked it the from the second time i tried it. I was a little disappointed at first. It opened up nicely in the bottle.

    My collection is somewhat larger than that pictured (I ran a whisky bar / restaurant for a couple of years before moving to the motorcycle industry). A lot of what I have were gifts / prizes / obtained below cost, I'm very fortunate and certainly feel the sting whenever I finish a bottle of something rare & expensive!

    To be honest as much as I enjoy everything I have, I could happily get by the rest of my life one just one or two Whiskeys. Okay maybe three

    I didn't have the exact same experience but I know what you mean. There are a lot of whiskeys I've enjoyed once the bottle has is a few weeks old from being opened; in a similar way I enjoy the Dark Cove more after leaving it in the glass for five / ten minutes or so.

    I'd chuck in an extra $5 and buy a 1L Glenfarclas 105. ($105)

    Glenlivet 18 is under $100 at Dan's at the moment.

    I agree on the Starward wine cask.

    Nikka from the barrel is delightful. (and under 100)


    I don't know that i could limit myself to three.

    Anything Starward is fantastic value for money, standard or wine cask is a personal preference.

    Enjoying a Bunnahanhian 12 at the moment, I think it just stretched over the $100 mark.

    I'd normally go Ardbeg, but at this price point I'll choose:
    Lagavulin 16
    Glenfarclas 105
    And a rye - either the discontinued Wild Turkey Rye at 101 proof, or Rittenhouse

    That covers sweet, smoky and spicy/peppery.

    Rittenhouse, for all my Rye fantasies.
    Nikka from the barrel, because cheap Japanese whisky is barely still a thing
    Ron Zacapa Solera 23, because rum can indeed be a gentleman's drink.

    I can't believe Talisker 10 didn't make the cut. I'm ashamed, but I needed the variety.

    If I'd picked a fourth it'd have been this for sure. Has been my go-to whiskey on and off for a long time.

    I tried the Diplomatico recently and thought it had far more going on than the solero.

    However, by the end of the glass i thought it had gone a little syrupy and my mouth had clagged.
    This hasn't happened with my solero.

    In the Diplomatico's defense we had consumed enough wine that i was last man standing. The Dip' and a 19 year old Glenfiddich (age of discovery) were put in front of me to help myself.

    I couldn't justify any more than one nip of each as i was looking through one eye and i thought it would be a waste to drink the lot...

    Interesting, I'll have to invite you over for a tasting.
