More samples posted today (on the right service this time, lesson learnt) and confirmation that the package I sent to bluepeter has been delivered and all is good so far Laughing


All definitely good from my POV. I'm looking forward to tasting the whiskies that I received this morning.

And the Royal Mail Track and Trace says that the package I sent to jwbassman has also been delivered Smile


Just arrived Peter - many thanks Smile

Are there any particular sample bottles that experienced folks recommend?

I'm a relative beginner as well, so not sure I have too much to raise real excitement just now, but I'd be interested in taking part. Really wanting to expand my horizons.


Yes, the ones I got were from Amazon, had a couple of boxes from them now, no complaints.

I bought some of these: http://tinyurl.com/zpd9qws. Amazon sell them in various quantities, so pick the pack size that looks best for you. The ones I received this morning from jwbassman were in identical bottles, so I'm clearly not the only person using them Smile

(If the URL doesn't work for you - I got a 404 when I tried it from the forum - do a search on Amazon on Nutley's 50ml Miniature Glass Spirit Bottle.)

I'm also a beginner, and would be happy to swap with you if you have any that I haven't already tried (likely!). Please see the lists already posted in the sample exchange section of the forum, and add your own. Mine's there: you're free to browse and PM me if there's anything you fancy.


Brilliant, thanks bluepeter. Those are a decent price, so I'll pick up a handful. Yep, I think we might be at quite a similar place at the moment. There's a few bottles on your list I'd be keen to try, for sure. I'll hopefully get a chance to list mine on the forum and then send you a message to see about setting up a wee swap as well.

By the way, the link works ok if you delete the full stop . at the end. Put a space in there before the . and the forum should pick it up ok. http://tinyurl.com/zpd9qws

I use this company and have purchased about 200 and they are very good and the service is great.. I only generally buy 3cl ( 30ml ) because of the amount I send out..

Thanks. I've just been back and edited my post to sort out the URL.

As for swapping, that's great. PM me whenever you're ready. And you're welcome to ask me to open one or two new ones. I don't mind having the order in which I open bottles dictated by swap customers, just as long as I don't end up with too many open at once.

I'd be very happy in principle to participate. In practice, however, I suspect that you're way out of my league, and therefore that I wouldn't be able to offer anything of interest to you in return.

Blue peter.. I don't swop for equal value.. i am very happy to offer what I have for anything.. it's all about sharing!! Everyone has things that intrigues me.. if I have things that interest others then I'm more than happy to share where I can.. if and when I get round to sharing then I'll look at your list and if there is something of interest then I'll send you some great drams in return.. no pressure.. just enjoy what you receive ..

Well, that's great, and very generous of you. Thank you.

Cracking idea guys! So jealous that I live in Australia and not the UK. Anyone in Australia feel free to PM me if you are interested in whisky sample swaps?
