I don't like walking around thinking me gob tastes like I was licking a crofter's chimney. It's like some oaf on the sousaphone thinking the piece needs more "oomph".

So is it like "finishing"? Not quite, I think finishing appeals to "dilettantes" who are attracted to bright colours and flashy lights. Peated malt is more for masochists who have something to prove to their mates. Harsh comment? Yeah sure, and partly in jest as usual. I like mine somewhere in between. I was very impressed with that Auchentoshan 3 Woods BTW. Jaysus, what a hangover though. Three Irish shots and I was guaranteed a blinder at 0400hrs.

I am partial to a Laphroaig as you say and a lagavullun as well. But am not a great lover of highland malts but one i got given the other week has turned my head and mouth was fettercairn very easy on the pallet and one that you can take to over a long night with friends. I'll bring a bottle in may

Excellent .. ... erm yes on the second part I forgot to mention that bit ... I think in part because it tastes so good you kinda lose your 'where am I on this bottle?' ometer ?


On another level ..... I dont know if any of you chaps have got into the Yamazaki stuff at all, but boy o boy .. you will have to try it. Ive only experienced the 10 and 18 YO but I think they are fantastic bevvies. Ive never 'drunk' a heavily soaked old style christmas cake yet.. but those whiskies must be close to it

The 10 is still very good value for such a rich product IMHO and as a result is worth a punt .. because you will only get more character with the dearer ones, so if you like the base , you know you are onto a good thing, although its comparitively new ground for me, I only came across them 7 or so years ago, and sadly they dont appear in the shops that often unless you go to a whisky merchant

I doubt it! If you use the full quote, it wasn't quite an endorsement

I think that it's quite coarse and best taken out of doors - on a hill, shore or riverbank - hunting whisky! It's very much the poor cousin of Lagavulin. Still, it's cheap and if the cupboard is bare, I can thole a wee drop of it
