Thanks Macdeffe that was definetly worth a read, I guess your opinion is similar to Gordons on this one. Peacock is the one to get then. :)

Tobermory 15 year old. This is quickly becoming a favorite, though I can't seem to find a bottle anywhere (I've only had it from a reputable whisky bar.) Incredibly balanced stuff, rich and full, yet smooth. A little smoke, a little sweetness, some leather and sandalwood, and a finish that goes for miles and miles...

First, a dram of a pure malt Scotch home-blend I put together last year. As I recall, this was composed predominantly of Highland Sherry-cask influenced malts with a significantly smaller quantity of Islay / island malts added to contribute smoke and seaside influences. Somewhere around 47-48%ABV. On this occasion, I immediately noticed how tightly the flavours have bound together since my last sampling some months ago. A tremendous surge of sweet dried fruits seemed to exude underlying earthiness at every turn. The finish was fairly long, and offered a nice orange zest twist.

I followed my own creation with a couple of pours of Lagavulin 16 Year Old, which (though I momentarily thought my creation rather excellent) won the evening by many, many lengths.

A great whisky!

3 Magners at the Football Club Trophy Night.

Youngest son won both Supporter's player and most importantly Player's player in the U15's so I was very proud Dad.

Came home and had an Old Pulteney 12 to celebrate. :thumbsup:

Tree Brewing - Hope Head Double IPA 8% 650ml
Very well put together but I was let down a bit, I was expecting more of a "West Coast" BIG D IPA.
