    Yup, I know what it is worth. :)

    I bought it in 1989 at a whiskey shop in Elgin, Scotland.

    I like to open the bottles with my hands, but if it works with drops of water, it is fine.

    Easy on the booze when you're feeling down, my friend. It's not a good time to drink.

    Rest a lot, exercise a good bit, eat well, work on good health... you'll feel better, then enjoy that wonderful Islay. (I love Islays, myself!)

    "Notes of iodine.." A fine Scotch strained through through bandages of Scottish war veterans....

    I'm not a huge fan of Scotch, but I do love Balvenie 12. I tried the Laphoaig 10 ONCE. I honestly thought it was a bootleg bottle of booze that could quite possibly poison us all! True.

    Iodine? Really?

    The peat dug out near the sea has salts from centuries of sea mist blowing in. Iodine is part of that along with bromine, etc. It's just the taste of the place where it's made.

    Perkele!

    Sorry to hear you are feeling bad, Laphroaig and Ardbeg are excellent choices though!

    Probably a latent thing exasperated by this worldwide thing that is going on. As George sang about, all things must pass ... Almost a law of the universe.

    Scotch & Coke is a good way to get rid of whisky that isn't interesting enough on its own IMO.

    I'm looking at you MacAllan 15... "Fine Oak" indeed.
