    All whiskey buying is on hold as the truck needs a new transmission , I have both towed and hauled with it and hope it will go another 2,000 miles to 80,000 before crapping out completely.
    The new one will be over built to last longer, the factory 4L60 was never meant to be for a truck . At least there have been after market parts made to tuffen it up.
    After I get that covered I'll pick up another bottle of Dalmore . I like there flavor profiles.

    Maybe my last review this..

    I've waited long enough to try this Ltd edition 16yr old from Fettercairn, and it doesn't disappoint.
    Lots of berries up front teases the palate which is backed up with a traditional bourbon wood base and some delightful sherried raisins.
    Cocoa and home baking there too.
    Not a long finish but it's a nice controlled one.
    This was made using what's called chocolate malted barley. Not many whiskies have used this but glenfiddich was one who did.
    Doubt you'll find any of this years, but I think this will be made again somehow, so grab a bottle.

    Nice bottle too.


    Enjoy your whisky folks as life is just too short to just look

    This is an odd dram.
    Belgium single malt NAS ,
    It has a huge amount of Bourbon influence and a Jamaican Rum like funk ,Vanilla, Toffee and pecans .
    More like a dry Rum or sweet Bourbon. My palate is confused, it changes from sip to sip. Needed a few drops of water.
