    Glendronach Revival 15yr old. A sherry bomb as you'd expect. Bottle is getting low alas.
    Nice stuff from dronach.. Not as good as the 18 tho

    I paid $20.00 for 1.75 liters of NAS Carlye scotch.
    I read most of the Bourbon cask scotches that went into this blend are 8 years old.
    I used a char 3 barrel for Rum then Bourbon,then added the Carlyle and left it finish,I put the Carlyle back in it's bottle and filled it with a red Chianti table wine for a couple weeks then drained it out, let it dry out some and put the Carlyle back in to sit for a few days and the results are very pleasing. It is still young but it's enjoyable to sip.The color is redish brown.
    Dose anyone know anything about Carlyle Scotch ? Grant's clearly the forum expert in this area,with out question.
    This little 2 liter barrel has been fun. I just poured some J&B rare in the barrel to see what comes, I'll look at it in a week.
    It tastes like a peated Irish Whiskey, I'm guessing it's mostly Grain, some malt but not a lot.

    For me, one of the finest malts you'll ever wrap your lips around!

    I just opened the link, that is my flavor profile , I'm sure I would love that.

    Carlyle is blended in glasgow... 20 different whiskies apparently.. the company is Thomas Carlyle & Co. Glasgow. SO a guy with a big vat mixing and bottling I guess.. It got decent reviews for a blended ? and they dont give much hints.but at that price, if it tastes good you cant really complain.

    I'm shocked how good it actually started out,and even more shocked how good it got with a little time in the barrel with extra finish .
    No complaints, people where buying 4 at a time. It is really pretty good.
