Which of the Still Austin bottles did you prefer? I've thought about picking up the Cask Strength a couple times but haven't pulled the trigger.Recent Pickups
We had a chance to taste the Don Roberto and wife decided it would be a very nice late birthday present.

Been looking for Lagavulin Distillers Edition at an affordable price and finally ran across a sub $100 bottle I couldn't pass up. The sherry cask finish calms the smoke and peat Lagavulin is famous for.
Tasted the Still Austin Cask 59% and the 49.2% head to head, in my opinion they taste like two different whiskies.

I appreciate the insights! I think one of the stores I frequent may have this in their bar, I'm going to see if I can try before I (possibly) buy.@icehog3
I'll agree with Texican that the Still Austin Cask Strength lacks the deep oak, woody notes and subtle complexity of well aged Kentucky bourbon.
But it is well priced and if you are looking to try something a bit lighter and different may be worth a taste.
nose cinnamon, sweet cedar, spearmint, dark sweetness well developed
Palate charred oak coconut rich vanilla
