    The Ardmore is supposed to be fairly peaty, so it probably is the dram you're thinking of, can't wait to try it. I'm looking for good values and I'm thinking that in order to satisfy my thirst for peat smoke I might have been better of with the Arbeg ten year ... oh well.

    Beer tonight is New Belgium 1554
    If you can find it try McCarthy's single malt From Clear Creek distillery in Oregon. Its only three years old but it is a beauty, incredibly smooth, smokey and peaty. Consider it a baby Laguvulin. voted best whiskey in the world a few years ago

    That seems a bit exaggerated unless they have become much better. I had that after they just started making it and wasn't all that impressed at the time. Now, the Clear Creek pear eau de vie is a different matter, clearly one of the nicest ones I had.

    Barber told me of a beer made in Japan and sold in a golden colored can - so after my haircut I went to local Japanese market and they had on sale "Suntory The Premium Malts Draft Beer" in golden colored cans. Not sure it is the beer the barber talked about but I picked up 2 cans and went to the cashier. The cashier requested to see my ID!!!!
    I told her I am collecting Social Security - but she insisted to see my ID - so I gave her my ID and said thank you
    So having my hair cut has made me appear years younger - to 1 person - beer was ok

    much better than the early days. here are a few write ups.

    McCarthy's started to receive significant acclaim in 2004, when Jim Murray's Whiskey Bible gave McCarthy's its Best Small Batch Whiskey in the world award and a score of 94. That same year Michael Jackson put McCarthy's in his list of The Ten Best American Whiskeys, published in both the Men's Journal (December 2004) and The Malt Advocate ( First Quarter 2005). Consistently rave reviews have continued. In his 2006 edition of The Whiskey Bible, Jim Murray wrote, "McCarthy's has earned a place among the world's elite whiskeys." His 2008 edition of The Whiskey Bible gave McCarthy's a phenomenal score of 96.

For straight smoke and affordable, the Caol Ila 12 and Bowmore 12 (if you REALLY want smoke). You can find both sub $35 if you keep your eyes out. But the Ardmore was a perfectly nice dram if I recall right, so I think you'll enjoy it.
    Mmmm...Ardbeg, I have the 10 for everyday drinking and a bottle of the 17yr old that isn't made any more.
