I wish, i picked up the phone then went back and posted not realising i'd already posted!

Got it from the main man himself Ashok as the Highland Show. Nice that he took time to chat, others on the G&M stand wern't too fussed, but given that most visitors were just after a free drink it was to be expected.

That Amrut will likely be a purchase in a couple of weeks. In the meantime I settled for an Ardeg Uigeadail (L10).

Apologies for repeating with the Kilbeggan but it's a picture that I'll post on our Irish Forum too.

Only took a month for the Laphroaig to arrive but better late than never.

And on a recent trip to Holland a Maxxium half bottle single cask of HP. I also picked up a Dutch Millstone 5yo SIngle Malt (not pictured)

Cheers Les I see you are really cultivating you whisky collection these days. They seem to be sprouting from all direction in the under growth :wink:

Thanks Nick ... I'm really struggling to keep myself in check though. Should not be spending at all :roll: But with the Kilbeggan being a historic bottling and very reasonable (for an Irish) and Laph being one of my favourites I could not let them go :twisted: . Think I'll have to make July a quite month as I have some Lap Batch 2 on the way also :oops: :oops:

Since I had today off, I decided to take the time to explore some of the smaller shops in the outlying towns and brought back the following:

Caol Ila 18 year
Longmorn 15 year
Scapa 12 year
Talisker Distiller's Edition 1992
Macallan 1861 Replica

I got them all at great prices and am very happy with the new editions to the closet.

Wait, no Japanese whiskies? Who the hell are you and what did you do to the real Dramtastic? :P



I have tied him to a chair, beaten him with the rod of whisky correction, and am making him drink only scotch until he has learned the error of his ways and is finally weened off those terrible nippon malts. I think we all agree it's for his own good.

Glengoyne Glenguin Shiraz Cask Finish 48% ; bottle number 3480 out of 3800.

Very drinkable even with this warm weather ( 30C of more ) and the higher ABV always fits Glengoyne malts very well.

Should be a nice summer sipper.



That almost underestimates this malts all round ability's. Summer sipper kind of puts it in 'Livet 12 class. I find it a much more complex and exciting malt than that. Though it is perfectly good for summer :wink:
