Re: What are you drinking now?

I am sipping a glass of Talisker DE while watching a very interesting and sensible debate on Alcoholism on BBC2. Well worth watching. I'm delighted to say I practice what I preach as far as alcohol consumption is concerned. I often debate with myself whether it is responsible for me to be a member o...

Re: Warming winter dram

Look no further than Ardbeg Uigeadail or Bruichladdich Infinity First Edition.

Both have a wonderful sweetness from sherry aging and a beautifully thick, rich mouthfeel, but also have a good dose of peat for warmth.

In fact I think I'll go pour myself an Uigeadail now.

Re: Talisker 10

I just picked up Talisker 10, and I was surprised by the bite. It seemed very rough, as the previous post-ers said I will have to try the 18 and see how different it is. Funny. I don't find it at all rough. There is a real sweetness and smoothness behind that bite. It is a wonderful combination. If...

Re: GlenDronach 12

I have to say I find this whisky a bit thin. It's certainly not unpleasant but I'd be more inclined to look at Macallan or Glanfarclas for a sherried Speysider.

Re: Cragganmore 12 a good introductory Speysider or not?

I think the Cragganmore is ideal. Glenfarclas and Macallan are good whiskies but I think it's better to try something unsherried if you want to get an introduction to an area or style of whisky you haven't tried before.

Re: What are you drinking now?

Talisker DE 1993. I wasn't immediately impressed. Too much sherry, not enough Talisker. Fairly recent opening though so I'll give it a bit more air before I judge it too harshly. Followed it up with a Talisker 10, a wonderful malt.

Re: Best whisky as a Christmas gift?

When faced with this situation recently I went for a Cragganmore 12. It should appeal to the non whisky drinker, is widely available as one of Diageo's Classic Malts, reasonably priced yet has a good enough reputaion for complexity to please the knowledgeable recipient.

Bruichladdich, for their variety but still stunning stuff for the most part. Ardbeg for being consistantly wonderful from base expression to the top dollar stuff. Laphroaig just for being an awesome dram.

Re: Still Spirit?

I've only had the Kilchoman. Like you say I don't think I'd drink a bottle of the stuff but certainly it is interesting to taste the spirit and get some of the character at that point. It does show that it isn't just oak and that gives the malt that individuality.
