I have a bottle of Grand Old Parr 12 year old that I got from a customer in the mid 90's. She told me it was her husbands who passed away 15 years prior. From the look of the bottle, it was sitting in their wine cellar for some time.This blend seems to get good reviews and after reading this thread, I am eager to try it.

Got my bottle of Talisker 10 last night. Good times were had by all.
I was cleaning/dusting the liquor cabinet yesterday (boss' orders) and had a couple of things jump out at me that I thought I'd share. First, for us 'Mericans that don't spend much time in British grocery stores, here's something I picked up in Oxford several years ago. Apparently Sainsbury (huge grocery store chain) has their own private labeled, well, everything...canned foods, dry goods, etc. We have the same thing here. Well, what we don't have is private labeled single malt whisky! I wasn't brave enough to get a big bottle, so I bought a sampler set...
One is still not opened after all these years, so I'm planning on having it for my birthday this weekend.
Since I was reminiscing about travels past, I pulled out my bottle of Macallan that I carried back from another trip to Oxford. It was an old 18 year back then, so it's really old now...
Wanting to just sniff that amazing bouquet again, I attempted to open the cork when it snapped off! After carefully removing the remnant and installing an emergency cork, I've decided to have this for my birthday too. Only a couple of servings left but it's time to drink it before something bad happens to the rest.
This will be a special birthday for me this year.
