It's Thursday so it's the day before "New Scotch Friday" for me~ technically I could skip a week since I haven't opened that Oogadoll (<-easy spell version?) I also just went back through this thread and had some laughs. I feel like I've moved up a bit from total dumbazz to kind of getting a feel of the terrain. I have an idea what to expect from a sherry cask to a Islay peat. The most amazing observation on the path so far being single malts, meaning all barley and this amazing spectrum that is possible with a single grain, it's fascinating science! So I don't know what tomorrow will bring but after reviewing this back to front there's been so much amazing discussion that has helped a lot. I was interested in comments on the Highland Park- could've swore someone posted some pics of their collectors editions. One that I recently read about was HP Ice and curious if anyone had tried it? It's stupid expensive from what I can gather but it also sounds amazing. But coming back down to reality, there's so much more for me to try for much less. So tomorrow, I may throw in an Irish, RB12? maybe Green spot? idk, and explore the "special" section just for kicks. I'm leaning towards another sherry cask and I really like these cask strength offerings. Maybe it's because I dig the Aberlour so much.
