Been enjoying a 1.75 liter bottle of Costco's Kirkland Blended Scotch. Had had another bottle of a cheap Scotch and then when I had a glass of the Kirkland, wow, what a difference. Pretty good stuff.

I don't actually drink whiskey because I'm a lightweight and can't handle it.

Perhaps if I were to ever watch Whisky Galore!,
I would have to imbibe, and it'd hafta be a proper Scotch fersure.

Although I truly love Sir Compton Mackenzie, I truly despise Gen. Ulysses S. Grant and his brutal tactics during the Northern War of Aggression,
but that Abraham Lincoln quote is purdy dam good I must concede...

As the Penguins take to the ice for the first game of their season, I am enjoying Dunhill RR in a Chacom 1/4 bent rhodie along with Midnight Moon Oak Cask Whiskey on the rocks.

It's a NC distiller. I've had a couple other NC spirits and they were not to my liking. This one is different with a reasonable price point.

I have not read the review yet.

First blush:
Neat, room temperature.
94 proof
Nose - Oak upfront and center.
Palate - Lingering pepper. Similar to Wild Turkey 101. But, it doesn't increase in intensity. It hits quick and then stays.
Finish - Smooth. Flavorful. Expecting the spice to intensify and then it doesn't is quite unique to me.

If you don't care for strong oak, give this a miss.

Going to check the review now.

Ok, so that wasn't a review link.

And it still isn't.
