Last bottle I had was Wild Turkey a nice little fruity number. the origin of whisky in Wales goes back 356AD, when the monks of Bardsey Island developed the art of distilling. musta been some big bang's back in the early years.

Well Andy theres an almost infinate blend of them on the liqueur side some infused with herbs , honey .. the list is endless and I enjoy many of them too .. like the auld favourites such as Drambui and there are a lot of blenders who specialise in this market only.. but they tend to be sweet a lot of the time .. those I prefer over ice.

I do realise that there are those that like and those that dont .. but.. if you are a haverer (auld scots for undecided) and if you want to try a proper malt, theres a sweet and gentle one called Dalwhinnie from just south of Inverness .. its noted as a favourite for those on the cusp a little water and its a sweet bed time nip after a long day

My own favourite is Talisker from the Isle of Skye. Tastes even better when I'm on the beach at Talisker Bay. Slainte.

Whenever I want to recapture the magical peaty atmosphere of the Drovers , on the way over from Luss , I take a Lagavulin ! Perhaps not to every one's taste , but I'll be surprised if there isn't a bottle of the 16yo somewhere about the house this Christmas..............Cheers..........

Was at the boat show this year, and there was a stall selling Bowmans, Islay whiskey.

Wonderful stuff, I had the 15year old bottle. Very Very Nice

Now you're talking my friend! Mind you a lot of people don't like the after taste of the sea ie iodine! It is an acquired taste.
