    Have not seen this stuff anywhere. Will have to look a little deeper and give it a try.

    I bought a bottle of Ezra just before Christmas, good stuff and fairly cheap. It came in a gift set with a glass.

    Finlaggan is also one I want to try and I see it in the edges of two of the pics. It's also trader Joe's exclusive, just not as forwardly obvious on the label (think it says in fine print)- but that's the stuff the internet thinks is actually just younger ardbeg, hence my interest)

    However, I too would like to try the rum cask. Shoot me a PM if you want to assist

    Got my first bottle of Lagavulin 16 yesterday... I had a pour a couple months ago and have been thinking about it since. Can't wait to crack it open in a few days. $65 at my near-ish-by Total Wine! Most places around me at $85+

    It's a good day!

    @49erfan I called ahead and they had six available. I got there and there were only three left. Have you opened yours yet? Let me know what you think!

    I'm saving up for my trip to Scotland in the fall. I'm not going to bring any clothes back with me; my entire suitcase is going to be scotch :laugh:

    Hell yeah. The wife and I are planning a trip to Scotland/Norway later this year too. I can't wait! I think we'll just be in Edinburgh and book an Islay tour. You planning on anything in particular?

    Nothing set in stone yet. We're celebrating our 15th 'anniversary' so I can't just drag her along on distillery tours :laugh:
    We're probably staying in the Inverness area because it's fairly centrally located between Aberdeen, Cairngorms, and the islands. But we're considering further South because Islay is non-negotiable on my list, and we'll possibly hit Skye as well.

    That's awesome. I'm getting my wife onboard with it by going over to Norway afterward. She's got relatives over there which makes it an easier sell. Man, sounds like you'll have a full schedule out there! Now you've got me thinking about trying to work Skye into my itinerary.

    For you scotch drinkers, once you open a bottle do you keep it in the box it came in or discard box? I tend to keep the boxes as i like the packaging, just curious what others do

    Depends on the bottle for me. The Glenmorangie boxes are pretty nice but I've only kept the Signet one.

    Depends.

    I have a bunch of the cylindrical scotch 'tubes' from when Speyburn and Bowmore came in metal. Speyburn used to be my scotch mixer of choice (at $20 it was a pretty good all-around cheap single malt) for when I felt like a Rusty Nail or a peaty Old Fashioned or Sidecar. Those tubes are all over the place; I've got some holding beans/oatmeal/pasta/rice/etc. in the pantry, some others holding nuts/bolts/washers & nails/screws, etc in the workshop, some with spent brass for when I eventually start reloading, some have got old posters rolled up in them still from when I moved out of my 'bachelor pad' and in with the GF... Pretty sure I've got poor Alicia Silverstone in a...compromising...position rolled up somewhere in a box in a box :hungry:

    The cardboard ones I just toss out once the bottle's empty, but I leave the bottle in them while it's in the liquor cabinet because I like the variety they lend to the appearance (and it makes them easier to spot when I'm feeling like a specific dram).

    Square or oddly-shaped boxes just get thrown away as soon as I get the bottle home, though. My tastes are varied enough that the cabinet is hurting for extra room as it is, so I can't spare the floor space that an odd-shaped box takes up :laugh:
