Whiskies of note
For zammis, and anyone else who's interested, some of the more notable whiskies from this year's Single Malt Scotch and Whisky Extravaganza:

Aberlour 16 - very soft and smooth
Bowmore 15 - a "full breakfast" whisky... everything from the pancakes to the coffee... complex, with a good balance of sweet and peat
Dalmore 18 - all the good qualities of the Dalmore Cigar Malt, but even better, with a rewarding complexity
Dewar's 18 Founder's Reserve- very good for a blend; sweet, smooth and nutty
"Double Barrel" - a blend of Bowmore and Highland Park; nice balance of the Islay peatiness and the Orkney sweetness
Glen Garioch 12 - light, floral, heather honey notes
Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX - full flavored with a sweet finish like honey drops
Glenrothes Vintage 1985 - deep, dark, with a baking spices aroma and taste
Laphroaig 18 - you really have to like the smoke for this, but it's smooth, smooth, smooth...

Of course, finding any of these may be a quest in and of itself...

oh NOM! nommmmmmmmmm.

laphroaig 18, mmmm. I had some of that once given to me by someone who liked to play "guess that scotch". I said "It's like Laphroaig, but better behaved." And I was Right.

these all sound very nummy. **drool**

Double Barrel:

One of the Society whiskies I had once was called "Hebridean Heavyweight" - a Laphroaig single-cask, very nice but the 18 was nicer I think.
