–Scotch Whisky–

My wife and I were sitting on the couch last evening. Having just come back from the UK, I was still filled with the excitment of acquiring some new Whisky. She suggested we take inventory of what I have, and then she suggested I post it on my blog.

Now, if you know me and want a taste of something, let’s make an evening of it! I am also always open to suggestions.

Scotch Whisky — single malt, to be specific — has enjoyed a tremendous market surge in the past decade. Part of this is due to inevitable backlash against the vodka popularity and all the fancy vodka drinks. Part of this is due to a generation growing older and looking for something more “sophisticated” to drink. Both have driven the Scotch Whisky companies to new heights of success and multiple new and interesting releases. So, this is a marketing entry after all.

Herein the inventory, with the offhand comments I made and my wife captured (and insisted I publish):

The Glenlivet 18 yrs
The Glenlivet 12 yrs French Oak Finish
The Dalmore 12 yrs
Oban
Oban 1980 double matured
Springbank 10 yrs (not as good as the 21)
Glenkinchie 1986 (d’lish)
Lagavulin 16 yrs (what more could you ask for?)
Glenmorangie maderia wood finish
Glenmorangie sherry wood finish
Glenmorangie port wood finish
Glenfiddich Solera Reserve
Ardbeg 10 yrs
Bowmore 12 yrs (still unopened)
Isle of Jura Supersition
Highland Park 18 yrs (all around one of the best Scotches in the world)
The Macallan Elegancia 1992 (kissed with love)
The Macallan 12 yrs (the classic)
Glengoyne 21 yrs
Laphroaig 10 yrs (separates the men from the boys)
Suntory “Yamazaki” 12 yrs (from Japan)

Time flies…

I am in the UK this week, meeting with many of my associates in both our UK and EMEA offices. Really positive trip and lots of value add for me.

Did some shopping on the London high street on Sunday. Things are not cheap, but always worth the price in London. Although feeling a bit tired from the trip and a lot of work to do, I am excited about things happening in the near future.

Thanks for Harry for letting everyone know I am managing the architecture track at TechEd. Can’t wait to do some exciting things!
