What whisky screams Christmas to you. Is there a bottle(s) you always have to have open for the holidays? Redbreast for me always crack a bottle open for Christmas week. Anybody else?

It's funny you should say that. One would think a fancy single malt would suit the bill. The one that screams holiday season to me is a blend actually, J&B Rare (Justerini & Brooks) with over 6 million cases a year sold worldwide. Made with 42 whiskies (something for everyone....).

For me the ultimate Christmas drink has got to be aberlour a'bunadh. It’s all rasins and Christmas cake flavours!

Is it the chairman's reserve from waitrose? If you like spiced rum give the Foursquare spiced rum a go best spiced rum I've ever had not heavy on vanilla like a lot of them and reasonably priced.

Lagavulin distillers edition has become a bit of a traditional dram for me on Christmas day..

Is Chairmans Reserve Spiced Rum nice? I want to branch out from whisky and try other spirits and I'm looking for a good starter sipping rum.

Christmas whiskies: I think Redbreast 12 is a great shout, but I would also add Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban and also their Lasanta and Midwinter's Night Dram. Glenfarclas 15yr would be good too I bet.

Chairmans reserve spiced is so nice and from start to finish I enjoyed every sip, as we know we are all different but I'd be surprised if you didn't enjoy it, a close friend bought it me for my birthday, as I'm not a rum drinker and was a bit worried but all was good .

Mount gay black barrel is a good crossover rum IMHO. Very whisky like for a rum. Also worth checking out the fat rum pirate for some honest rum reviews.

Cheers guys, placed an order for Chariman's over on amazon because it's only £21.99. If I like it I'll give that Mount Gay Black Barrel a crack as well! :D I've bookmarked that site as well Redders, thanks.
