Glad to hear you got it sorted and interesting too.

I'm sure there are some that would say that you've irrevocably altered the flavour profile of the Whisky but the most important thing is that you ...

I had a Glenfarclas 15 that was massively dominated by sulphur both on the nose and palate - I tried it again from another bottle and it was fine.

I think I ended up pushing through but I never bou ...

I picked up a bottle last week, it really is that good. I'm told it's 8-14 year old in the bottle.

The following day I tried Glenfarclas 21 and it really wasn't as lively (still bought a bottle tho ...

I recieived a membership to the SMWS with the pioneer pack which includes 3 200ml bottles that I'm quite excited to sample.

Also tickets to a couple of tastings coming up in Manchester which sound ...

Not an Islay but I've recently reaquainted myself with Talisker 10 and will recommend it. For some reason I don't recall it being 45.8% but it is and all the more for it.

Nowhere near as big a Peat ...

I really struggled with the first episode.

I found it too lightweight - all fluff and no real content. It feels more about Scotland than about Whisky per se and when they came to the Macallan it wa ...

American oak for me is weak , thin and very young, not impressed ,

Like anything I think it depends what is expected before the experience and the comparisons.

For it not to be rubbish?

Oh, I forgot to mention that I travel fairly regularily and my partner works for World Duty Free so I'm able to plan and buy Whisky on trips a bit better, although the range of exclusives are getting ...

I much prefer the QC - Perhaps it's pure down to the higher ABV but I tend to find that Peated Whiskies really benefit from youth - I think the QC is sub 8 year old, maybe even as young as 5 and it's ...

Looks like a Glencairn Glass... but shiny black. Really not a fan at all. Matt black might have looked slightly better.

Unless it's for investment! Why on earth would you want or need a black glencairn? Weird .

Because it looks pretty?
