Truly? I rather enjoyed it.


I'd gladly give you the rest of the bottle, because quite frankly I just can't drink it. Lord knows I've tried.

Sean, almost to half way mate and it's getting worse. Farm yard is putting it mildly in the case of my bottle. More like pouring hot water through a strainer containing the dregs of the bottom of an uncleaned mouse cage.

Dun Bheagan 8 Year Old Islay, which logic suggests is Caol Ila but taste intimates is, in fact, a young Lagavulin. Either way, a solid aperitif.

Nikka Pure Malt White

I'm taking a bit of a punt but I reckon the Islay malt that's vatted into this is a Bowmore, slighly floral and perfumy. Though that distlillery is owned by Suntory so it's a pretty wild guess.

Glenmorangie The Quinta Ruban... Not one of my favourite Port-finished whiskies by any stretch of the imagination, but a decent enough digestif nonetheless. I've always thought the original Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish cleaner, fruitier and better integrated than this one. Strange given the fact that the distillery makes much of more stringent cask selection for the current version, not to mention the 46%ABV bottling strength and lack of chill filtering (two facets I almost always like).

I always wondered about this one. It is apparently the key single malt at the core of Chivas Regal 12 yrs. I may just have to pick up a bottle.

I am presently enjoying Glenkinchie Distiller's Edition (Distiller in 1992 and bottled in 2007) double matured in Amontillado Cask. Very very good! A world of difference from the standard 12 year old bottle that is a big disappointment.
