Trinidad Tuesday unboxing these Topes Edición Limitada 2016. #AboveAverageLiving #cigaroftheday #trinidad #cubancigars

Tasting Notes: Glenmorangie Ealanta
Vital Stats: 46% ABV (92 proof), distilled in 1993 and bottled in 2013, 100% malted barley, discontinued and long since sold out, yet some retailers currently offer the release at around $300-$400 per 750ml bottle. Yup. Ouch.

Appearance: Vibrant amber in hue. Strong, oily legs which cling to the glass for a decent amount of time.

Nose: An interesting nose with a few pleasant contradictions to keep things lively. Both fruity and somewhat spicy with a little graininess mixed in for good measure. There is a softness and boldness mingling in the air just above the glass. Decent amount of cinnamon early on with very subtle oak and big note of soft butterscotch candies in wax paper, and butter melting on a warm sourdough biscuit. A nose so clean you could eat dinner off of it.

Palate: Unmistakably Glenmorangie. Sweet. Full, yet delicate. Slight bitterness in just the right measure to balance everything out. There is a cinnamon-roasted almond note throughout which has become somewhat of a trademark element in middle-aged Glenmorangie releases in my own experience. I find it quite welcome. The familiar Glenmorangie citrus zest is also present. Not nearly as oaky as one might expect, the years have mellowed the dram.

The finish is enjoyably long and soft. There are a few spice notes which whisper their presence late, but never speak up enough to derail the sweet and definitively drinkable dram.

Final Thoughts & Score/Buy A Bottle:
Score: 93/100

Buy NowGlenmorangie Ealanta is single malt of distinction and quality, to be sure. I found the entire presentation to be quite enjoyable, the rather cumbersome accompanying literature notwithstanding. In fact, I keep referring to Ealanta as “a bit of a stunner” in my mind. Being named World Whisky of the Year in 2014 unceremoniously strips the release of any claim to dark horse status, which is honestly a bit of a shame. The price it currently fetches on the secondary market as a result is flatly ridiculous.

A mighty 25 year old Caol Ila bottled in 2005 at cask strength (58,4% ABV)

Today we complete the focus on the Balvenie 17 yr limited release series.
I am not meant to have a favorite child but this whisky is up there.
The Balvenie 17 yr Doublwood.
This 2012 release is matured in ex bourbon.casks for 17yr before moving to ex oloroso sherry casks for a 9 month finish.
The purple label on this whisky always reminds me that this whisky was released to celebrate our malt master David Stewart's 50th year at the distillwry. No.wonder the Queen gave him an MBE last year.
Toffee, caramel, fresh and dried fruits with a decadent mouth feel on the palate.
So glad this whisky is here to stay.
Outstanding

I am blessed with amazing neighbors. Sometimes living in the country can feel lonely but then you get the call that the neighborhood men want to get together to have a scotch tasting. Grab some snacks and come over. When you bring your food there is more than you can imagine... shrimp, five different cheeses, homemade cakes, figs, prosciutto, salami, etc and seven different bottles of scotch. Bunnahabhain, Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Red Breast ( Irish whiskey..can't be called a scotch because it's not made in Scotland so I found out tonight) Glenlivet Distillers Reserve, Glenmorangie and Strathcolm. I knew nothing about Scotch walking into this tonight but learned a lot from my amazing friends and neighbors who I consider family. We were even able to celebrate our one neighbor's 75th birthday tonight with a slightly buzzed version of Happy Birthday. I have never heard the song sung so well....at least in my moment of scotch bliss. Ha ha. Thank you my awesome friends and may everyone be blessed with neighbors like this. Cheers!! #cheers #neighbors #thegoodlife #bunnahabhain #lagavulin #ardbeg #glenlivet #glenmorangie #strathcolm #redbreast #goodfood #goodfolks #gooddrinks

Whiskey Tasting with some amazing ladies. 🥃

I understand so much about whiskey now across the board. This was a really fun event! I drink a lot of wine, so this was a nice change of pace! I didn't hate the bourbon this time around, but it helped to understand how to drink it properly! Berkeley Untapped was so much fun!

Yamazaki Distillery 😍😍

Fantastic. "Fruitcake& #34; gets thrown around a lot as a tasting note, but damn if this isn't a glass of that. And, again, if you're paying for the Macallan Ruby...smh.
