    I can see why.

    I picked up another two bottles tonight - it's just too good.

    Also got a 2016 Argentinian Pinot Noir for Xmas Day - no idea how good it is but it intrigued me.

    I got this bottle for $90.00 today, regular price was $150.00.
    Grant, who is Alexander Murray ? It is all 18 year old single malt from the Dalmore Distillery.
    So it's all White and Mackay right?

    Some of those bottles look rather low in the neck, is that just the way they were filled or evaporation?

    They where all filled to the same level.
    Not evaporation for sure.

    Dalmore really adds the artificial color to there 12 ,
    This 18 is awesome, very creamy, new premium kip leather baseball glove, dark chocolate, tangerine, peaches,apricot,touch of mint ,rich vanilla&oak for a very long Finnish.
    I really like this a lot. This is what Dalmore should be selling, no color added , just great tasting.

    The cabinet has bottles hanging over the edge, the shelf is slightly bowed, I have bottles packed in, I need to drink more or buy less.
    I wonder what a 21 year old Dalmore would taste like?

    Amc are a independent bottling company. Do a lot of nice stuff. 21yr old longmorn is a cracker.
    Than one will be nice too. Looks like a mix of bourbon and sherry casks.
