  6. That’s better than my tasting notes which are ‘nice’, ‘not nice’, ‘ok’. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have a way with adjectives.... according to SWMBO! Despite my mastery of the English language when I was a practicing barrister.
  7. I’m liking the look of your kitchen!

  12. Interesting. I’m not surprised, what with the ££££ attached to some whiskeys.

    Here’s an interesting but true story related to the above.

    Pre-prohibition in the USA Irish whiskey was the whiskey of choice, everywhere due to its triple distilled smoothness, and a massive seller, not just in the USA. Great for Irish exports. Come prohibition the Canadian bootleggers took empty Irish whiskey bottles, or forged labels, and smuggled coloured industrial alcohol into the US. Those that bought it (illegally) and drank it were shocked with poor quality, if they didn’t die or go blind! People stopped buying Irish whiskey for obvious reasons. Prohibition came and went but still no-one would but Irish, thanks to the Canadian bootleggers. This gave Scotch whisky it’s opening and the Scotch distillers took full advantage of it. Only now, almost 100 years later is Irish Whiskey making a comeback.

    Just FYI.

  15. Aye, I had a bottle of Penderyn once upon a time. I’ll have to try and find another.
  16. Clearly not a whisk(e)y, but the Brecon Gin from Penderyn is worth finding too!

  17. Quaffed a Laphroaig whilst wrapping the pressies. Phew! At least that’s that done for another year :)
