The Dragonfly? I had to look it up, its the done up "Firestation" an imfamous old underage drinking den and whorehouse.

I frankly don't have very high hopes on the "Tiki Monkey" night, Edinburgh has a bad tiki reputation the shudderfull "Waikiki Beach" (a super pub in the florida style) was a prime example.

Well whatever it turns out like, there are going to be some damn fine coctail Bartenders there so you'll get a good drink, i was going to go myself as i'm carving some tikis for it, but i can't.
I can probably get an invite for you if you want.

Truly one of the finst Scotches I have ever encountered is a 25 year old, cask strength, Royal Brachla. Whaaaaaa.

T.F.

I wholeheartedly support the Lagavulin camp but I've found one even better for about the same price. Caol Isla 18 year old. Heaven in a glass.

Speaking of glasses, I really need to get a hold of those glasses on pg. 1.

Since I'm a huge fan of smokiness, my favorite region is Islay. My favorite Islay is Laphroaig. However, the intense smokiness and peatiness of single-malts count against them when you're trying to make a Blood and Sand, so I use Cuttysark's for that.

Has anyone had Jura scotch? Or some of the American vattings? I've read a little about them, but never went looking for them.

Ok... I have a scotch question.. I bought a bottle of The Glenlivet 24 year scotch like 10 years ago, it hasn't been opened. Do I now have 34 yr old scotch or just an old bottle of 24 yr? I'm pretty sure I know the answer.. but am unsure. Thx in advance.

Unfortunately, spirits don't age in the bottle--only in the barrel.


EDIT: 'Course it will change character over time in the bottle, but the age on the label is the barrel age and you can't add to that once it's been bottled.

That's kinda what I suspected. It's been stored in a cool dark place, so it should be just fine. I remember it being quite a pricy bottle when I bought it.. haven't had a good reason to crack it open, maybe soon.

Lagavulin 16yr old malt distilled in Isly is my favorite of all times. I like the smokey flavor and the clean clear taste. I am hoping for Santa to bring a bottle for me. So far I am paying $21.00 per shot at Musso and Frank Grill, ouch!

I am a single malt Scotch Girl myself. I have always enjoyed, 18 year Glenlivet. But that was only until I recently tried Bruichladdich, described on their site as a sophisticated Islay Single Malt. It was given to us as a gift and when I went to replentish our supply I realized why it was so good. $150 a bottle, but so sweet and smooth with nice complex flavors. If you ever get the chance to try it or invest in a bottle you won't be disapointed. In my opinion by far the best one out there. Here is their site. http://www.bruichladdich.com/

In the "people who like this sort of thing..." category; Just tried Laphroig Quarter Cask, and I think it's my new favorite. Smokey as hell, and a lot of flavors going on. Z

As usual, I'm chiming in late.

I have several faves. For cigar duty, my absolute favorite is Aberlour 10 y.o. For mixing, Johnnie Walker Black. For sipping I'm torn between Macallan 25 y.o. and Balvenie Doublewood. For the "WHAAAAAAAT???" factor, you can't beat Costco's Single Malt. (It's a 19 y.o. Macallan for +/- $60/bot.)

Now you know.

A long time ago. I remember really liking it though, but can't remember much else....
