Re: Australian Whisky

I recently had a chance for a tasting at Lark distillery in Hobart and was very impressed by the their cask strength port wood, I just wish I had enought cash to buy a bottle, it was well worth the price they were charging :) I would recommend anyone who is visiting Hobart head down there for a tast...

Re: What's your latest bottle kill?

Glenmorangie Original, I probably won't bother to replace it, it was good, but I can't help but wonder how much better an caramel free, non-chill filtered version would be.
It was my 'everyday' dram but has been replaced by the Old Pulteney 12

Re: What are you drinking now?

I'm just finishing off a Glenmorangie Original and I'm just about to pour a Talisker 10, not the most exotic, but two very fine drops for my money :)

Re: What is your most recent (whisky) purchase.

I take delivery this weekend of a bottle of Longmorn 16 that a family member picked up duty free. Can't wait :D

Re: Advice for a total beginner to single malts

Well no-one else wants anything from the MIL's duty free alcohol allowance so I'm getting the Talisker 10 and the Gelnfiddch 15 Years Old, Solera Reserve. A an added bonus another relative returning from OS is with any luck getting me the Longmorn 16. Instant single malt collection :)

Re: Advice for a total beginner to single malts

Just enjoyed the first HP 12, (from the bottleshop) and it's good, but I can see what dramtastic means, it seems to lacking a little something. The smokey peat flavour and nose is great and it's a nice spicy finish, but for me it needs a little more body. Just sitting sipping the 18 year old now, th...

Re: What is your most recent (whisky) purchase.

I just got myself a bottle of Highland Park 12 that came with a bonus miniature of HP 18. I've never tasted either before, but I'm looking forward to them. :D

Re: NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCTION AREA

Hello all, I dived into asking questions before I found this bit of the boards. I'm new the world of whiskies that aren't mixed with soda or even coke when I was very young and stupid :) But I've been enjoying a Glenfiddich 12 year old lately and this looked like a good place to get some advice on w...

Re: Advice for a total beginner to single malts

The Talisker 10 does sound interesting after reading some reviews of it.
I'll just have to toss a coin to decide between that and the Highland Park :)

Re: Advice for a total beginner to single malts

It's actually a my mother in law who's getting it for me, from the Melbourne airport. I've been going through their duty free shop website. it's pretty cool, I pick what I want, pay for it with a credit card and she just has to pick it up for me on way back into the country

Re: Advice for a total beginner to single malts

I'm not sure if they're are any speciality shops in Melbourne, but I'll go and have a look in one of the big Bottleshops for some miniatures.
I'm partial to a bit of a smokiness so I think Highland Park is a safe bet and I don't get many chances to get into duty free so I'll risk it :)

Re: Advice for a total beginner to single malts

Thanks for the advice and the warm welcome. The Highland Park seems to one of the very few single malts that all the reviews I've read online agree so I think that's what I'll try and get. At the moment I'm mainly interested in trying a single malt from each region, so that's Spreyside and Islands d...

I'm very new to the world of whisky, I was given a bottle of Glenfiddich 12 year old as a gift and have been enjoying it a lot, but that's pretty much all I've tasted. I've got a chance to pick up something duty free and was wondering what people would consider the must have for a newbie from this l...
