Re: Jim Murray's 2011 Whisky Bible Revealed

Interesting to see a blend at the top of the tree - Ballantine's 17 year old. Haven't tried it myself yet but will have to give it a go now to see if I agree. :D

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

I just bought four bottles off ebay for £45 quid (had to collect from 15 miles from home) .

A bottle of Bells, one Laphroaig 10 year old and two Glenmorangie. Not a bad haul eh? Bargain! :)

Thanks for the info.


They tend to offer around 60% of what the retail price will ultimately be. You need to also bear in mind that the retail price includes VAT.

Good luck anyway.

Re: The Macallan 1963

Royal mile whiskies have one for sale for £870 http://www.royalmilewhiskies.com/product.asp?pf_id=0040000005124 if that is the same one. Of course that is retail and includes VAT. In a private sale you would have to accept somewhat less. As regards how to sell it, see my ealier reply on the Teaninic...

Re: Teaninich

Your best bet might be ebay. Whisky tends to go for a reasonable price on there.

Another possibility is some of the online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange. They sometimes buy rare and discontinued bottles.

Good luck. :)

Re: Tasting for smoothies

Maybe the Glenmorangie 10 year old. Lightish, fruity and smooth. A very nice dram.

Re: Monkey Shoulder

Monkey Shoulder should definitely not be compared in the same light as some of the more intense and characterful single malt whiskies. I suppose that's where I was going wrong. Because it is a vatted malt I was sort of assuming that Grants would have succeeded in concocting something really special...

Monkey Shoulder

People rave over this vatted malt. However, I have to say that I wasn't that impressed. I found the nose quite inviting with some fruitiness and vanilla and also a hint of oak. The taste was quite light and somewhat fruity (citrus) with some sweetness to it. However, I thought the finish was very sh...

Re: Starting a career in Distillery Management/in the indust

Having just returned from holiday in Scotland and having visited a couple of distilleries, the overriding picture I got was that generally people stay in their positions for a very long time or until retirement in the industry. I would therefore imagine that positions come up rarely. Good luck with ...

Re: NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCTION AREA

Thank you all for your warm welcome. I have already learned a lot from this website.

We are lucky indeed in these modern times to have such resources as this available to us. Just 20 or so years ago websites and forums hadn't been heard of !

Thanks again.

Re: NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCTION AREA

Hello Everyone. I spent a week in Scotland (Glenelg) in May. I went to the local pub and said to the barman "I suppose I'd better have a Scotch". He asked me which one (they had three blends on optic plus 8 or nine malts on the shelf), and I replied "Oh, any. They taste pretty much th...

Re: Famous Signature Speysiders

I've voted for the Glenfiddich although it is a very very close call and for a free bottle I could be persuaded to change my vote to either of the others :P
