    I didn't know that about the IPA cask, it does baffle me why they would add it to the core range and it's the least impressive of the 4 experimental series(Bottega imported a couple of cases of No. 4 so I bought 3 bottles). I doubt there will a second edition of the Project XX, unless there's...

    I try to attend as many Whisky events as I can, WhiskyLive is my least favorite. Wade Bales in JHB is awesome on the Thursday cos the brand ambasadors are there. On Friday they send the 'pourers'.

    I've insured mine, I provided insurance with an itemized list with replacement value (without shopping costs). Alexander Forbes pays for a Quantam risk evaluation every couple of years based upon your policy so it was visually inspected as well. He was more concerned with getting the list though.

    At the WhiskyLive you get electronic coupons that u redeem for a pour....well, that's for the guys that put out their glass, get a pour and then walk off. If you stop and have a chat about Whisky then you're likely to get it 'free'. I never use up all my coupons, I usually donate them at the end...

    You referring to the Whisky Live event. It's usually much smaller than the JHB event in November, not necessarily a bad thing as it gives you a chance to chat to the brand ambasadors. Ardbeg was there last year but they're not coming this year, they're doing Wade Bales this year. I'm doing...

    Similar profile to the 18 year old, Sherry profile, quite complex with layers of flavour as you r tasting it. The story goes that 20 whisky experts were invited to Glenfiddich's warehouse and were told to each choose a cask. They were probably thinking that they were gonna get a bottle from...

    Are you referring to the Winter storm batch 1? There was only 1 batch of project xx. I'd rate the project xx better than the Winter storm..... I'm taking the price into account when rating them.

    Did you find the Project XX on special, I was hoping to get a bottle or 2 last week but it wasn't on sale. Some great barrels went into making that whisky.

    Bought these on the Sunday the 12th from Checkers and NGF(would have got the Glenmorangie 10 chair if I got it from PicknPay on 18th). Glenmorangie 10 and Lasantha to complete an old bottling collection that I'm collecting before the new branding. Rest of then to drink. Got these from PicknPay...

    Thanks, checked the online stuff and there's some good deals based on the 25% off. Will probably raid a few stores close to me as well.

    Try the Buffalo Trace, almost half the price and better than the Makers 46, IMHO.

    When you said last week I assumed you tasted them at Wade Bales. I'll try them the next time I'm at Bottega.
