What Whiskey Are You Drinking?

  1. I found that Bells has a major problem (apart from the rough finish) for me

    This is my all time favourite. It's blended but beautiful. Haven't any at the moment as it has a short shelf life once I get stuck into it. It's like a rich fruity caramel, an alcoholic toffo almost. Mouth watering thinking about it.

    I did a single malt tasting at a Belgian guys house last year with the dark chocolate chunks mentioned earlier. He put 9 bottles on the table for us to sip and provided various cliched accompaniments as well as the chocolate (haggis and tatties I recall, but it soon got fuzzy, could have been more). I tasted all 9 within about half an hour and promptly passed out on the sofa. Tasting notes.... Next time.

  8. 62AE8D9D-6B5D-4A13-828A-10E3EF09E370.jpeg Saw this in the airport on our way home. At a mouthwatering €929 :scream: that’s €50 per 50cl (home measure). Even though I like malt whisky it wasn’t too hard to resist.
     
  9. It's much vaunted and now seen as being some of the best in the world. I was in Tokyo a couple of years back and ended up in a whisky bar with every brand of malt you could imagine. I tried some of the Japanese drinks and personally didn't find them as smooth as my favourite scotch. Even in this Japanese specialist haunt, scotch was very much on the menu. :upyeah: I can't remember names of any I tried apart from Yamazaki, which was a little sharp for me.
