A new Whisky Club anyone?

Mashuganers - anyone interested in a new Whisky Club linked to this blog?
Pals in Scotland have offered us unique access to special bottlings of Whisky. We can get delivery of exclusive bottles of Whisky monthly. Please let me know if you have interest in participating.

Oban 18yr Old - soon to join the collection

Was at a party serving the new 18yr old Oban. Very nice - smooth thru the whole range.
Drier, less toffee and fruit, more dried spice and oak when compared to the standard Oban 14 year old. A beautiful combination of rich, nutty toffee balanced by polished oak, salt, pepper, seaweed, distant smoke and dried fruit. Somewhat oily in texture.

Longmorn 25 - very sweet, really nice

D&M sent this out months ago. Really special. The Longmorn 25 Year Old Cask Strength D&M Exclusive Bottling, Single Malt Scotch Whisky is bright pine color with very slow, regular legs. The nose offers fresh cut pine, heather and a note of citrus peel, along with chocolate covered toffee. The whisky is lusciously textured, with lots of heathery malt,and a bit of baked honey. There's very pretty, almost white, campfire smoke lacing through it all and a kiss of sea brine to the finish. A drop of water brings out the toffee note. D&M Tasting Notes.
Distilled: 1983, Bottled: December 2008. 56.2% ABV. Cask# 43042
