    I am going to open the bottle of Redbreast Lustau tonight for fathers day.
    After dinner and online church service.
    I have a smattering of whiskeys and a couple whisky's too.
    But nothing compairs to the years of collecting Grant has amassed.

    That bottle would last Marco at least a couple of days.

    Redbreast Lustau is 10 years then 1 year in the sherry cask.

    Grant, Do you have a bottle of Fishky in your collection?
    I was just reading about this 50% ABV Herring casked horror.
    Wondered if you'd seen it?

    It is a funny version of recasking , who would recask a whole half barrel in a herring barrel just for a joke.
    Seems the 200ml. Bottles stayed in the UK.
    Most where purchased for fun and not opened.
    Seems the last word in recasking , top this one guys.
    I hope some thinks to preserve a bottle, the story is just to good to die.

    Latest arrival, and probably the last for a while.... "The Beast Of Mortlach". from the "Beast Of Dufftown"

    [IMG]Game of Thrones, Six Kingdoms..The Beast Of Dufftown. , on Flickr[/IMG]


    it goes along with my other Mortlach, an 11yr old at cask strength..

    [IMG]Mortlach cask strength. , on Flickr[/IMG]

    Mortlach is although in the Speyside region for whisky, considered to be the beast of distilleries, making powerful chewy whisky... They are one of the few to use worm tubs to give that weightiness to the spirit
