Jimmy, I'll be only too happy to take them off your hands if you don't want tthem any more!  :D

Problem would be having it SwagMailed up here ??? I have this funny feeling that something may just happen to cause the bottles to spring a leak in transit  ???  >:D

Lol I thought I have an offer or two. I'll manage to get back into it  ;D

So how many years is it matured in an oak barrel?

Sorry mate, it is not whisky then.  It is just flavoured ethanol  :D

I make my own whiskey in various different ways but the stuff thats sitting in the old oak barrel (with a little help from some fresh charred oak chips) is magnificent  ;D

Agree, the only whiskey to drink has an "E" in it  ;D

Nice first threat to leap into.. As a Scot, I try to live by my father's rule - Whisky doesn't have an 'E' in it!

If you like it straight, with ice, water, whatever- the important thing is to enjoy.

Personally, I prefer my whisky as a toddy. Not terribly hot water, but a comfortable temp.. it opens up the whisky and, if like me you like sitting outside in the winter - a very warming drink. Try it, you may well be surprised!!  :cheers:

I am liking DUBLINER at the moment.
Maybe more of a liqueur than a scotch?
But it has a hint of honeycomb flavour.

Try Dubliner with a splash of baileys. Was sceptical at first but man-o-man. Makes a nice cup of 'coffee'

Mate also asked what to get me for my birthday, I said been having a scotch lately, he fronts with a 18yr old SM Glenlivet. Nice friend
I like Chivas and Glenfiddich mainly. Normally straight.

This is a great thread!

How can you tell the difference with that iceberg in there?  Compare again with just a splash of room temp water.  Trust me, I'm a professional  :D

accept that it may affect the taste, for now I enjoy the initial chilled hit, then the prolonged melted ice savoring. This may change over time as my taste change

My brother is mates with a Whisky importer.  So last year for my 60th, my brothers emptied their piggy banks and went to the mate and asked him to select 3 good bottles. Pic below

The Glenfarclas 12 YO comes with two miniatures in the drawer underneath of 21 and 25YO - all were great, but the 25YO was a standout.  Caol Ila is wonderful, smooth and rich and extremely well balanced.  Haven't opened the Longrow yet but it is rated highly though.

Under $100, my favourites are  Laphroig 10YO (or the Quarter Cask which you might just find at that on special), , Abelour Double Cask 12YO, Smokehead (not everyone's taste, I admit, VERY peaty), Jura Superstition, Lagavulin 16YO, Ardberg 10YO and Oban 14YO.  Abelour A'bunadh is a touch over $100,  but wonderful and worth the stretch. Amrut Fusion from India is well worth a try too, I really like it. I have very little experience of Aussie and Japanese whiskys but have some a few good ones, price is higher for quality though.  Not keen in most Irish, but a couple of premium Jamiesons I had were very good, don't like everyday stuff though.  Less said about Bourbon the better..

Oh to have all of those in the cupboard now!!!  Mind you, my liver would suffer!

Yes.  Won't go wrong there.

Of course, single malts vary in flavours, like boutique wine.  For example I reckon Pinot Noir is a waste of a good vineyard, but many people love it.  Some people love the stronger smoky, peaty flavours of Laphroig Single Malts but others dislike them.  I even enjoy Smokehead but that can be too extreme even for Laphroig lovers.

I haven't yet tried a single malt I thought was bad, just some I like more than others.  The Singleton is actually 3 sub-brands, different styles from different locations.

I am sure you will enjoy it.

ouch, tried this up on the Murray last weekend, very easy and smooth to drink. Only problem I found next morning was a whole lot must have evaporated out of the bottle overnight...........and based on camper feedback, it may make people snore loudly
