    1 btl comes to mind for me is the glenfarclas 21. Getting better with time and oxidation in the btl.

    Wowwwww………..15 years Ralfy and still good on a peated whisky? I find my peated whiskies go flat after 10-12 months. Ralfy do you "Gas" your whisky to preserve that 15 year Laphroiag???? I encourage anyone of you Malt Mates to answer this ?? for your bottles.

    The Hazelburn 10 is around $90-$100 by me in the Chicago area. Seems high priced for a 10 year old standard proof malt.

    If I want a bottle to last 10 years, that would only be like two small drinks per year per bottle. If I have three drinks per night on three nights per week, that would be 468 drinks per year. If I can only have say drinks per bottle per year (in order for each to last ten years), I'd need a stock of 234 bottles on hand.

    I like to keep at least 8 bottles open and rotate each week. That way they last at least 4-6 months. Ralfy, have you tried Loch Lomond's Inchmoan 12? An excellent dram that doesn't seem to have many reviews

    Which makes us ask the obvious question Ralfy – how many bottles do you have open? I have a couple of (small) drams most nights of the week, and over a year I'm still going through 15-20 bottles per annum. I usually have 10-15 bottles open and even then they usually last 6-9 months only – to drag them out I'd need to open another 10 bottles!

    Always appreciate the extras, good to be told to reset and rethink 🙂 Cheers

    I'm not the biggest peat-head in the world, but a Laphroaig after a few months opened might be the most beautiful taste in the world.

    Hazelburn doesn't get the love that it should probably because there is so little of it and few selections every year. Last year it was the 10 and the 13 oloroso. Springbank is not putting out much but what ever they do I buy and it's always beautifully elegant and pretty whisky. it's the Catherine Zeta Jones of 25 years ago whisky. Do you remember ?
