Admin

Is there any admin watching over this forum?

The fact that someone has registered and then posted a series of topics across the board universally has ruined what existed previously.

Re: Help me choose

Before this thread went off topic I'd be voting for the Talisker. I always support the indies but that is a great malt. Keep buying it and encourage Diageo to maintain supply over the NAS stuff.

Re: Sweet Whiskies

Deanston is always enjoyable with some sweetness; the Spanish Oak was excellent but that's now dried up. Not managed to try the Toasted oak new batch yet but the first one was pretty popular. Apart from that wine casks do up the sweetness. The Longrow Shiraz cask for instance is sweet with a long dr...

Re: This is a single malt? With his value with bottling Year

I think this is a bottling by Gordon & MacPhail and it will be a single malt. Not sure of the rarity, these types of releases with a meaningless name aren't hugely desireable tbh.

Re: Help me buy my next bottle

When you can try and experience something from Springbank - not the peat you're looking for but excellent nevertheless. The Ardmore traditional is perfectly fine for the price and readily available.

Re: POURS tasting Edinburgh 6th March 2014

Packed evening and great fun last night. Glentauchers was the dram of the evening followed by the Craigellachie then the Glen Elgin for me.

Re: What is this worth?

Would depend on what decade the Old Parr is from. Generally blends aren't worth that much from bygone years and instead offer value for money for those wanting to experience from 80's or before.

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

From the Cadenhead's February outrun the Auchentoshan 21 year old - still surprised I've actually bought something decent from that distillery. Lovely dram. Then the 'Berlin edition' Craigellachie 14y 55,1% again bit of a surprise so had to snap that up. I always go in thinking of buying X&Y and...

Re: Musky is planning to invade some distilleries in 2015.

Maybe give us your 25 and we can give you some advice on those?

I always enjoy a visit to Deanston, Balblair, Clynelish and the Islay distilleries. Bladnoch as well is pretty unique and Glen Grant a great visit.
