    Very cool! Im originally from the bay, vallejo to be exact. Out in Connecticut now... Also picked up a bottle of widow jane. its an 8yr whiskey made in upstate new york, naturally limestone filtered, some of the cleanest water on earth. Its unbelievably smooth! along with that i snagged a bottle of Stagg jr. which is pappy rebranded according to the sommelier I spoke with and that is unreal. 132 proof! and finally I grabbed a bottle of signatory vintage reserve Glenvilet 18yr that they finished in sherry casks. Signatory is a whiskey broker that will buy barrels from distilleries and do with them as they please. So if the company doesnt release a 20yr, they will do so etc etc. We tried it back to back with the regular 18yr and its exactly the same except you get that nice sherry taste as well. Ill post a pic of the lineup in a minute.

    Picked up some Oban 14 at Costco a week ago. They had a great price so I couldn't say 'no.'

    That's a pretty good way to describe the Lag

    For me it's like a hot charcoal BBQ with some well soaked wood chunks thrown in....mmmmmmmm.

    Big fan on Oban 14 - Their Double Distilled one is really good too.
