1960`s/70`s 70 Pproof blends H2H

Re: Jolly Toper tastings program Jan. - July 2018

So the big mystery : it was all blends. Perhaps wrongly I assumed poor attendnace for a tasting built around blended whisky. As it happened 26 of us took the plunge. I wasn't sure how long to keep the connection between the drams secret but we lasted until the final pour. There was some good guesse...

Re: Is there a dram you like from a distillery you don't?

Same as my last answer JT (www), I usually do not like Ardbeg profile but in the last 2 years I have had a few that have almost got to 90 points, so now Ardbeg is officially not quite as a crap as I thought it was (I will put my hard hat on now) :)

Re: Speyburn 1975 37 year Clan Cask cask 3413 55.4% OB

It was available only to members of the Clan Cask originally and only in the UK but then put out on line, I got one of the last bottles in September as a present and it was £250 which for a 37 year single cask OB is excellent. I have used it as a benchmark malt when comparing other so called great s...

Re: Does anyone think Macallan is good value these days?

Interesting question - you've perhaps tasted more of Macallan than I have so I suspect a comparison of old versus new based on your extensive experience has value. I'm personally a fan of sherry cask matured whisky so Macallan generally works. I'd have to say I've had a lot of enjoyment from the 10...

Does anyone think Macallan is good value these days?

It is a simple question in all honesty , my answer is an emphatic no. Macallan has been trading on past glories for far too long, yes its older stuff up to roughly 1980 distillate could be truly excellent but the quality is not there anymore and their prices reflect those glory days not the below pa...

Skackletons blended malt 40%, an easy sipper, not complex but enjoyable all the same and worth buying £25-£35 depending on where you shop?
