Default Hey Simpleman!!!

Check it out....3 shots of Dalmore, 12year, 15 year, and Reserve. I'll let you know in a bit how it compares to Glenmorangie.

Hotel has a promotion on it. $55 for the 3 shot sampler.

Not a bad price for the sampler you described. How big a pour on those? Was it a heavy ounce?

He's the one who has been doing all of the shopping and fridge stocking for me all these months. I think I brought a tear to his eye. He didn't want to accept the benji, but I insisted.

I'm not a Scotch drinker, but there was a hotel in a town near me that advertised it's bar had the largest selection of Scotch whiskeys in the western hemisphere. They had some that cost $600 for a shot. The place closed up a few years ago, and I wonder what happened to all that stuff.

I like to try before I buy; that sampler would be a very wise investment if I decided I did not care for any or all. No nearly full bottles sitting unused, no buyer's remorse.

$600.00 a shot! Wonder what that was. I know there are some ultra rare whiskeys that can go for tens of thousands of dollars a bottle but it is hard to imagine a bar buying one of those and selling it by the shot.

I know you have to bring in water but maybe more water needs to go down the lines to keep them clear

$55.00 decision...

Fill my tank

or

Get tanked.


I filled my tank. Maybe next time.

I'm fortunate. My palate is about as sophisticated as a WalMart store.

Wife bought me this for Father's day/Birthday. I've had a few glasses and it's good stuff, but I wouldn't waste money on another bottle.
