Re: Lost Distilleries – the moment when it’s all gone!

There are rumours of Dallas Dhu and Imperial firing up too. Dallus Dhu? Wow - I'd heard the Imperial rumours but not that one. I don't know of anybody that's come across a bottle of Parkmore - allegedly all of the maturing casks were destroyed when the distillery was closed, which seems a bit futil...

Re: Lost Distilleries – the moment when it’s all gone!

Having grown up in Inverness, I'm quite interested in the 3 distilleries you mention and try to research as much information about them as I can in my spare time. There was an article in a recent issue of Whisky Mag regarding last year's Shackleton release. As the original whisky taken by Shackleton...

No official confirmation on the distillery but there are rumours flying around that it's a certain Speyside distillery that notoriously doesn't give its name to independent bottlings very often...

Re: Want a really good map of the scottish distilleries???

This is a great looking map and it's a nice change to see one that includes historic lost distilleries such as Devanha, Man O'Hoy etc. Good work.

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

A G&M Connoisseur's Choice 1996 Ardbeg (old map label, bottled 2005). Found it forgotten on a high shelf in a small corner shop - not bad for £25 quid. My first Ardbeg purchase so hoping it's as good as i've heard.

Re: What color of bottle do you prefer for your whisky?

Definitely prefer a clear bottle in general. However, sometimes the use of green and brown glass can be extremely effective in creating a strong presence and sense of mystery around a product. For example, I'm always blown away by Lagavulin - an outstanding looking package and quite dominant on shel...

Glenfarclas Movember bottling

The new bottling from Glenfarclas and Master of Malt, released to promote the moustache growing month of November. http://www.masterofmalt.com/movember/ I ordered one this morning - has anyone else? More importantly, has anyone else tasted it yet? The only review i've found so far is on whiskynotes....

Re: Looking for information on lost Aberdeen distillieries

Thanks for the book recommendation Willie JJ, I'll definitely give that a try. jmrl, you're right - it is Devanha you can see from the train - it's just a shame the lettering on the roof is now gone. I've tried the library and was surprised to find that they've got next to nothing - odd considering ...

Re: Your top 5 bang for your buck whiskys

Would have to choose:

HP 12 (obligatory)
Black Bull 12 (a blend - but bottled at 50% with quite a kick)
Laddie 10 (currently a little bit too expensive for a 10yo in my view, but still - it's incredible stuff)
A'Bunadh (near to 60% ABV for about £30 quid? yes!)
Glendronach 12

Looking for information on lost Aberdeen distillieries

Hi, I'm trying to research the history of three distilleries that used to be in Aberdeen, namely Devanha, Strathdee and Bon Accord. All I have so far is what i've read in Scotch Missed and Alfred Banyard's book. If anyone has any information, pictures or resource of any kind I'd be extremely gratefu...

Re: NEW MEMBERS - INTRODUCTION AREA

Hi everyone, I'm a 25 year old graphic designer from Inverness, Scotland (home of three sadly deceased distilleries of varied repute) I've been interested in whisky for a few years now - my favourite drams so far being Glenfarclas 10yo, Black Bull 12yo, A'Bunadh, Octave Cameronbridge 1979 and Glen O...

Re: Is a Good Blended Scotch worth trying?

Agree with Alzarius, Great King Street is superb, as are Black Bull 12 year old and Monkey Shoulder (though this is a blended malt)

All nice and affordable too! :thumbsup:
