Glad to hear from you again.

Yeah, I have 5 bottles currently opened, GD 12, GD 15, Glenmorangie 10 Original and Wild Turkey Rare Breed 118.2.

The fifth one is a little sidetrack. A Pierre Ferrand Amber cognac. Just bought it today after work and I'm sipping it right now. Wonderful aroma of floral, vanilla, pear, citrus and prune. On palate, it tastes honey, nuts, balanced oak. So smooth. I'm feeling like in heaven. I'm falling in love with cognac from now, I'm afraid.

I've had a Glenfarclas 17, 21 and 25...but not the 15

All were pretty similar, lighter and slightly nutty, honey and creamy vanilla
I found the sherry influence substantially lighter in profile compared to GlenDronach.

Very good, but their best value for the money (IMHO) is the 105 Cask Strength



A little more Sherry a LOT more punch!

Thought I would share something some of you may not know:

You don't need a membership at Costco and Sams club to buy alcohol. They have great prices, especially on 1.75ml.

Interesting. I usually check out Costco, though I do have a membership, especially when in Hawaii. The selection isn't stellar but the pricing can be. Didn't know that about Sam's club though either, so thanks.

A law prohibits the sale of alcohol through members-only arrangements, so you should be able to purchase at any Costco type stores.

My buddy used to work for an alcohol distributer and clued me in. Obviously the stores don't advertise this because they want you to buy a membership.
