There has been weirdness in the scotch supply chain for sure.  You get a shiat-ton of one thing and not enough of the other.  One thing arrives and another disappears.  And the seasonal stuff is spotty as well.  I've almost given up on an Balvenie Peat Week coming in (not "Week of Peat").  But I did manage to find a bottle of Laphroaig - Cairdeas triple wood...

No kidding about the supply chain. If you get the chance, try the Laphroaig CS, a wonderful dram. Then again, so is Ardbeg Corryvreckan, even Wee Beastie. Looking forward to a good Scotch thread.

Wee Beastie is very good. Especially for a 5-year-old expression. Can't go wrong with Ardbeg. I am a fan of peated/smoky whiskys, and most single malts.

Yes.  The Laphroaig cask strength is another that's spotty for sure - can't find it anywhere.  But I will hunt again tomorrow.

I'm doing the Drinks by the Dram advent calendar, The Whiskey Explorer, which is what Patton Oswalt is doing incidentally, and came across the Shakelton blend a few days ago.  I had read about it a few years ago and was really surprised that I picked up a couple of bottles - and I'm not a blended scotch guy by any means but it is really good over ice (and I typically do neat).  The Oban 14 came up yesterday, in the calendar (or the day before)...I already have a bottle or two of that - very nice.

If you want to be smacked in the face with the peat, go for the Kilchoman Loch Gorm - but it seems to be sold out everywhere. :(  I have one pour left.  Luckily, I'm stocked on the Lagavulin 16 for the holidays.  Still, I'm hoping that Balvenie Peat Week comes in at some point.

And speaking of Kilchoman, their small batch USA release seemed to be over stocked or something because there's a ton of it (slowly dwindling away).  I have an unopened bottle just sitting there....need to crack it open this weekend I guess.

The only Ardbeg I've tried that left me a little overpowered was the corry. Man that's some strong stuff.

The Corryvreckan is FUN. It's kind of overwhelming neat. A little bit of water smooths it out, but it's still like a big, glassy ocean wave with a ton of things going on beneath the surface.
