Whisky - elixir of life

Wiring into a Glendronach 15 yr old (revival) - very nice! Lots of fruit and a long syrupy finish. 46% no ice, no water required. Not as ‘thick’ as the ‘parliament’.

Glendronach is a cracker and my ‘go to’ bottle in the winter.

I’m saving a Bunnahabhian Stiuireadair for Christmas - had one last year it’s exceptional.
 
If your cock fits in an advent calendar I'm not sure he'd notice.
I was hoping for something at least 21 years old. I'm not sure that he qualifies!
 
Today I saw one of my favourite blends " Isle of Skye 8 year old " for £15 in Asda so in the trolley it went

I suggest using the "reply" function, otherwise it looks like you're sat on a bench next to the Fair Maid, drinking Buckie and shouting at passers-by and pigeons. ;-)

Buckie = Buckfast tonic wine made by monks Favoured drink of yobs and alkies . Tastes bloody awful on internet says made from an original French recipe so it's all your fault ;) :)

Never tried it but seen the effects.

Caffeinated to ensure total bampotness when taken in sufficient quantities.

I only had a taste of it last year at a BBQ and god knows why people drink it. I said to the lad who had brought it to the BBQ you could have got a bottle of decent red wine for the price you paid for that
 
Scrabbling around in the back of the collection of various bottles this evening, I found an unopened Auchentoshan 12-yr, and so shall have a couple of nips - very lovely, indeed, and especially/surprisingly in contrast on the tongue to Lagavulin.

I thought that I might make another bottle of it one of my Christmas presents to myself, but in the advertisement next door on Amazon, saw this:
Amazon product
...but I don't know; too much fruit could result in some sort of vile cocktail. Anyone had it?

Not too sure about some of these whiskies that have been "finished" in different barrels. I don't think I would risk £40 on a bottle, but would certainly have a dram just to see.

I notice in the Amazon advert this:
Best enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a long drink with pineapple juice & peach sparkling water

This tells me everything about who these new bottles of whisky are aimed at.

Too right. Though I have had some of the more expensive whiskies with a 'sherry finish' where it has worked very well.
I'm getting a sample of Glenmorangie Oloroso that has already been described as 'a ladies' whisky'. Not gonna stop me drinking it though!

That 'best enjoyed' is a marketing department work-experience-lad let loose and utter pointless cobblers, arghh!
 
I have started putting together my Christmas "cellar".

Maybe add a couple more, just to be on the safe side.
