I finally splurged... on a bottle of Balvenie 21yr Portwood. I have tasted it before, and even had a mini bottle last year. It is unbelievably good.
I decided to finally pull the trigger on a bottle when plans came together for my best friends and I to get together over the holidays. We're spread out far and wide these days, but we'll all be in Dallas this next week. I figured the occasion required a bit more than just a bottle of the usual.
I picked up the bottle today at a local shop that specializes in the high-end hooch. Here she is in the box:
With my other Balvenie expressions, the 15yr Single Barrel (which I keep in my decanter) and the 14yr, which I have not yet broken the seal on. Before the plans came together to see all my best friends over the holidays, I bought the 14yr to bring (planning to see at least ONE of my best friends, and wanting something good to share.)
For those of you who have never had the pleasure, I highly recommend you try it.
Here's to good drink, and good friends!
