Did Santa bring you any whisky?
Which was your favorite one?
I had a bottle of Paul John 2019 Christmas that I hadn't tried before and I absolutely love it.

I was pleasantly surprised by The Whisky Exhcange's Christmas Malt - a 10 year old Linkwood. While by no means Christmassy (if you associate Christmas with heavily sherried and/or 'spicy' whisky) it's very well made, a cross between the fruity Speyside and austere Highland style. I was also given a Glengoyne 21, but to be honest so far I've been enjoying the more humble Linkwood more.

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 like fun.

Very nice both of you.
It's my birthday today and the lads at work clubbed together and got me a bottle of the astounding Tweeddale Evolution 28 year old. One of the best drinks I've ever had.
Another mate got me a lovely Mackmyra Vintersol.

Had a couple of bottles of Mackmyra Vinterglod amongst others, one of my favourite winter whiskies.

As a winter drink I think it is fantastic, so rich and really fruity, and has a great nose to it, I know everyone has a different palate but have had 3 Bottles of this and still come back to it after Yamazaki 12 became too expensive as an everyday Whisky

It is about £52 a bottle but getting harder to get hold of, master of malt have some left at that price, a few other places are asking £60-70

I was gifted a bottle of Glenfarclas 2009/2019 Christmas edition, PX cask from Germany.

For a young GF it's certainly very good!

Oh right, thank you. I'll have a look round for some.
Just sat down with a Vintersol. Really nice dram.
