Got a bottle of glenfiddich special old reserve in the house and begrudge opening it up for a cocktail, hoping my tastes change before it ends up in sours and old fashioned'sTry a Rusty Nail. 2/3rds any blend plus 1/3rd Drambuie. Lovely stuff and will suit your sweet tooth!
I didn't buy it and four of us shared it - probably the way it's meant to be supped.Oooft, 25 year old Highland Park is out of my league. Well played, would love to have tried it.
bairn got me a bottle of JD honey for xmas(god knows why ive never indicated a preference for it as a vodka drinker) but its not bad and is very sweet. And I dont like scotch can just about manage irishWe bought a cheap single malt for cocktails thinking by the time the other ingredients go in it'll not make much difference what whisky you use but it was awful even full of lemon and sugar syrup it had a medicinal type taste, definitely get what you pay for.
Me and @moanjam are looking at ArranArdbeg probably my favourite core malt....
Mainly like Islay stuff but there are some other belters out there ( Springbank, Kilkerran, Glen Scotia, Glengoyne etc)
dry January so not able to enjoy my expanding stash for a while yet.
A few of us off to Islay in May..about to book trips to Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Laphraoig and Bunnahabhai.
All massively peaty though which in my experience puts people off (not me, I love the stuff).Poster up thread who recommended Ardberg & Lagavullin has called it. Laphroaig can be regularly found at £25 a bottle which is massive value for money. Ledaig from Mull also a good shout.
Writers Tears is on offer at Marksies if you like Irish stuff - very decent.bairn got me a bottle of JD honey for xmas(god knows why ive never indicated a preference for it as a vodka drinker) but its not bad and is very sweet. And I dont like scotch can just about manage irish
the colour of Dalmore thoughDalmore 15 is a nice one. I used to like the Jura’s before they changed for the worse.
