Because you mentioned Octomore - look for lagavulin distillers edition 2020. All their distillers expressions are beautiful and I think it's a cool way to commemorate the year which got you your promotion. All the best and congrats!

Thank you both!

If you’re looking for something unique I’d recommend Kavalan Solist Ex-Bourbon Cask (if you can find it here)

I have their Solist sherry cask and love it! But you have to be a sherry-head...

If you are going the Yama or Hakushu route could consider other Japanese if you can find them available. Something like nikka aged stated (yoichi or mikayagiko) or my favorite blend is a hibiki 12 or 17, also some taketsuru out there (the 17 is better than the 21 imho, but the NAS stuff is overrated collated to a yoichi or something).

I still see lots of the NAS stuff but prices have gotten ridiculous. I’ve slowly been drinking my stash down from 2010, but other than a Yama or hak have only seen other age statements 2 times in the last 3 years in store (yoichi and mik 15’s that were still $250)

Have you have the Redbreast 21 before? I only ask because personally (and weirdly I admit) I like the 12 so much more than the 21

I have not, but noted!

Thank you all!

Congratulations! Personally I'll be buying a bottle of Stagg when I find myself in your place, but whatever you decide on, enjoy the well-earned celebration!

I feel jerked around by my team, as they keep telling me I will be promoted/have more responsibility, every few months.

They said they have put forward a case for my promotion now. I want to believe them this time but feel like a fool when I think back to some of the earlier conversations. Should I bring those conversations up, or just smile and saythanks

Didn't get promoted and the more I think about it, the more upset I become. Had a good year, helped fill in gaps, took on roles to help lead internal initiatives, led/managed teams to success, and worked looonnnggg hours to the point of burnout. Leaders also know how much I was working. I didn't expect a promotion because I had low expectations for my firm, but I'm still pretty bitter. Should I ask why? Was I too naive and ended up giving too much? Or is this a reflection of my work/value?

A consideration in any early promotion should be anonymous feedback from those directly under that person. How any firm thinks a person should move up early without considering if the people they lead think positively of them is odd
