So right now Rock Hill Farms is tripping my trigger. Another Buffalo Trace product and it is pretty tasty.

This was still lurking in my bar and last night I pulled it out with just a single pour remaining. Some recent articles have said Rock Hill Farms is the same grist as Blanton's. I have not seen Rock Hill on the shelves recently.

I always felt Blanton's was over-rated/priced.  Bought it in my 20s but I'll only drink it now if you're pouring.

The new bottle of 12 year old blended scotch whiskey from Costco is delicious.  Complex, layered flavors, and smooth.  The best of the three I have tried.

That was the ~$35 bottle?

Guess I'll just pour out the cheap stuff.

Some good ones on that list. I am a fan of the Highland Park, Ardbeg, and the Aberfeldy. I have heard good things about Bowmore, which will be a purchase of mine soon.

Aberfeldy 12 went on sale in NC in December for $34 a fifth so I picked one up. Saw it in SC for close to $50. While tasty and enjoyable I gotta say I like Monkey Shoulder quite a bit more and at $28 a fifth picked up three more recently. Sale in NC is on for it until the end of the year so I might sneak off and buy a few more.

Was the Nikka Whiskey - Pure Malt or Whiskey from the Barrel? I have not tried either of those, but hear wonderful things about Pure Malt.

I'll have to double check when I get home and sample some. I'll let you know

Whiskey rocks are my new favorite addition.  I will probably never drink  whiskey 'neat' without them.

I've gotten accustomed to drinking some neat and at ambient temps, but with some Bourbons I like the way the flavor changes as a large cube melts. Cold would change the equation, but I'd have to have so many rocks in the freezer we wouldn't be able to accommodate any food. ;)

I have whiskey stones and an ice ball mold. I prefer the ice but the stones work when I forget to make the ice. Cheers!

I use this silicone six cube tray and each time I empty it I freeze another six.



Each cube looks like this in the glass.
