    yes this is the 2016 re-release when they doubled the price, and replaced the price point of the old 16 yo with a NAS Distiller's Edition.

    My most recent addition to my small but growing collection is Talisker 10 year. I have done the different regions and gathered that I should do the islands last. So I thought this would be a good place to start the last region.

    Visited London and I found some bottles that I have looked for some time. First three from Bruichladdich.image

    Then two from Edradour.

    Good picks...I would personally skip the Laddie 10, but Edradour is always good, as we've discussed plenty of times :wink:


    I just picked up a Kilkerran 12 year.  I've always been curious to try this "new" distillery.  So far I'm enjoying it quite a bit.  It's a great, no frills, classic, scotch.  Perfect for both newcomers and connoisseurs.

    Kilkerran is on my list of single malts to try. The reviews of it are very interesting.

    Chivas Regal has a 12 yo finished in Mizunara japanese oak.  Until recently it was Japan exclusive, but lately has started appearing at Singapore Changi airport duty free.  However, just noticed that the bottle label does not have a "aged for 12 years" statement,unlike those from Japan, but the box still bears the "aged for 12 years" statement.  I am guessing they make a NAS version for international duty free, but overlooked the age statement on the box.


    sweet and easy to drink, an excellent blend to relax with, oh did I mention it was cheap as well?  just USD50 at travel retail for 70cl.

    It's an enjoyable, classic scotch.  It has a little bit of everything and does a good job showcasing how scotch should taste.  If there was a whisky drinker who wanted to try scotch, I would definately recommend this bottle.  That being said, I wouldn't buy another bottle either.  I'm not going to say it's boring, but there is nothing memorable about it either.  

    I don't picture myself saying a few years from now "I really miss that Kilkerran 12."

    Is it good?  Absolutely.  Is it enjoyable?  Yup.  Is it special?  Not really.   Maybe that will change as the bottle opens up, though...


    @hwchoy, that looks like a really interesting bottle.  I'll have to keep it on my radar!
