the glenury ghost is by far my favourite blue so far. It adds a bit of that dal more king edward 3 style but with that blue everything goes down easy.

I find that it's the casual whisky drinkers that gravitate toward the Blue in my collection, as it's something they've seen and heard about.
I always try to steer them to other options they might like more, but at least 50% go for JWB. Oh well, it's actually cheaper (a lot) than some of what they could ask for.

Green or Gold over Blue for me, even if I'm not paying. And if you want to try something interesting, try putting a little fresh coconut water as a cutter in JW Black instead of water. Learned that one in Trinidad and while it sounds odd, it really is good.

I will def try this. I generally make Maime Taylor's, Blood in Sand's, Smokin' Coke's, or Scotch-Vermouth-Tonic's. Always looking for new concoctions.

Hope you enjoy! Make sure to use real coconut water, not sweetened and definitely not coconut milk.

Pretty decent coconut water w/o any additives is available most places with the surge in using coconut water as a natural high electrolyte drink.

I usually keep a can or two on hand. I like it for hangovers :wink:

Walked into local BevMo for the first time in months and found the shelves unstocked and Macallan 18 price raised to $320.
Most of Scotch had higher prices than before, and I walked out empty-handed. Will stick to my home stock for now...

$320 for Macallan 18 is not out of line. But in my opinion there are better selections, such as an Aberlour for about 1/3 that price.

I remember when it was $80/750ml. Still bought Aberlour or Glenfarclas.

Whisk(e)y inflation is nuts. I feel eventually the market will flatline and there will be a glut. Hopefully prices will then fall back to a respectable level.

I don't suppose we'll ever get back to the days where you could get Weller Reserve for $17/handle or Yamazaki 12yr for $30 :deadhorse:
