Balvenie 21 year old Port Wood finish. First time I have tried it. Nice but can't make my mind up about it yet. I think I was expecting something more spectacular given the tasting notes I have read about it.
First dram of the evening so it may grow on me.
Cheers, Rab.

Well the witching hour has come and gone, and although I would not consign the Port Wood Balvenie to the dust collecting shelf along with the Arran, it is not a dram I would pay upwards of £80 for.
Dare I really upset the Belvenie lovers and say there is a tad snob value being attached to a mediocre whisky.
However, taste is subjective, and this dram doesn't appeal to me as much as others.
Cheers, Rab.

It's a tough one Wee Rab, I actually do like it - but when you consider the recent release (craftsman reserve) for £65 it probably isn't great value.

I think when you can get the 21 yo "Islay" malt for £42 from Martin its tough to compare the value!

Back to my own Bladdie Blend tonight, Distiller's Choice, 10 year old sherry wood and a dash of water, with a Port Dundas in rotation. Didn't mean to be so disparaging about the Balvenie last night, I'll put my comments down to disappointment.
Cheers 'n' beers, Rab.

Bit of a late start tonight with the drams (had to play Taxi....) .
Started with a 1992 15yo Bladnoch from Butt #2615 then moved onto the Geordie Laddies 10yo Port Charlotte which is getting more and more of a Bonfire on a beach , incredibly smoky with sea air , sweet peat as well .
I've got to sit down and write a bit about our bottle , we had 3 spare after the share out , one was drunk on Islay , one was given to the lads who'd actually performed the bottling and the 3rd is going to be given to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation to raise some funds , a worthy cause we all thought ! So they need a paragraph about it . Could end up a long one.....

Just had a wee hauf o' the 21 year old Strathmill from Martin. Very similar to the older 37 year old bottling, but has more of a peppery finish. Lovely dram.
Cheers, Rab.
