Got a ka la van soloist whiskey again but the cask strength 59.4% version. It's better neat than with a drop of water. Neat and lovely.
My wife's family are great I'm really lucky, they all know I'm crazy into scotch but when we were visiting in the summer I mentioned that I was fascinated by armagnac and would love to learn more. Guess they actually listen when I'm blathering on.
Picked some of this up in sainsbury for £26.66 thought it was worth checking out
It's sainsbury in pimlico if your in the hood and interested
Cotswolds Single Malt is genuinely among the best I've ever tasted. Just lovely!
Picked up an Octomore 8.2 from duty free this morning and just giving it a try.
Absolutely crazy stuff, 8 years in European oak with the usual ridiculous peat content. The wine barrels it’s been in have given it a ton of fruit which is probably even more noticeable than the smoke. It’s not subtle but I’m a big fan.
Had a bit of a sore throat all day, decided to dip into the collection, started with this
Decided a round number was nicer, so washed it down with more of the Scottish stuff...
Treating myself to a few whiskys in the Lord Wargrave. First up Springbank 15.
Absolute beast that is Ardbeg Corryvreckan
Swiss whisky. Interesting.
^ interesting good or interesting bad?
I wish I still had some Gouden Carolus for tonight.
It's very young, sweet, spicy and peaty but the finish is very short, it's a bit all over the place but the spice dominates . Going to give it a few months to open up before trying it again.
My mate is in a band, a whisky band... Come join in the fun? https://thewhiskyband.com/shows
