    @ColbyLang - that lineup is sweet.  Big Elijah Craig fans in your crowd.  
    Frank, those were the limited release barrel proofs from the last couple of releases. And yes, big EC fans

    I just was introduced to the ECBP last year and have been lucky enough to grab both releases so far this year. Great stuff.

    The only "Japanese whisky" I have had are the Blanton's exported to the country and then shipped under the guise of clandestine back to the USA. 
    Reads a barrel strength of 102.8 which is quite close to the 103 proof Gold label I have.
    Enjoy as I'm sure it is quite smooth.

    My experience with true Japanese whiskey has been they’re very peat heavy. Like scotch.

    Summertime it’s Horton’s tequila with a squeeze of orange over ice or the lime version with club soda.

    Agreed. I would say it is definitely scotch but they cannot or don’t choose to call it that.

    The colour (nod) of the above favors brown over blonde water but the taste will be the true reveal.

    Interesting- my experience has been different.  Most of the Japanese whiskies that I have had have been less peaty- they seem more precise to me.  Certainly a spectrum (just like scotch).  I understand that Yoichi bottlings are much more peaty. 

    Also, a shout-out to @GrateEggspectations for the Nikka from the Barrel bottle that prompted this conversation.  Great pour!  Whiskey Advocate Whiskey of the Year 4-5 years ago if I recall correctly.

    Totally agree based upon my limited exposure. More in the classic highlands or Speyside as opposed to an Islay. You’d be hard pressed to distinguish a Japanese whisky from a common scotch offering IMO. I’m a scotch lover so that’s just fine by me. 😁
  • Nice beer that I brought back from Aruba. Wish I had brought back more but only found these at the airport for sale at a small take out food stand.

    Baladhi was the big brewery when I was down last.   Even their basic offerings were nice.

    Thanks. While I’ve had Nikka offerings before, this one was special for me. A/B’d it with some Suntory whiskey, which didn’t hold a candle.

    Evening drink.   Not my favorite, too hot for me but was a Barrel Pick from my local shop.

    @Stormbringer that's some nice champagne right there.  The fish and chips are being well toasted.
