BOOOOOZE …. with Halloween coming up I think a spirit has possessed my spirits.
Guys (and gals) do silly stuff after a couple of drinks and this is a perfect example. Take four guys, several bottles of Single Malt, and a headlamp, and you get a haunted, glowing whisky bottle.
This whisky deserves a proper review… this isn’t it. I just thought the picture was cool.
G-LO and the gang were holding court with some Single Malts the other night. When I joined them with this bottle, I started goofing around with a headlamp that was on the table. The lamp looked neat with a plastic cup and a Glencairn glass for a shade, but the Balvenie Goldencask bottle was the best. I can see why people turn old bottles into lamps and other cool things.
This bottle is a little plunder from my last trip to the Caribbean. The location has nothing to do with the whisky, except that this stuff has spent some time in a Caribbean rum cask. It was just a duty free shop bargain that I couldn’t pass up. If you have a few hours to kill at an airport layover, I recommend you try to seek this one out as it is a fantastic Scotch. If you like a whisky that is a little spicy and sweet with almost no smoke this may be the one for you.
I am sure G-LO and the boys will chime in on their opinions to flesh out this post and give more of a review of this one. If they don’t, a follow-up post will be in the works.
UPDATED – 9/28/11 – Never one to shy away from a challenge, my boy G-lo was Johnny-on-the-spot and jumped right on a formal review. Read it HERE
