There is a good interview about the SMWS on this weeks 'Reel Blend' on Radio Scotland.

It is in the second half of the two hour show not long after the news.

They use Real Player unfortunately  :(

Nope, not really, way down south from here. About 1.5 - 2 hours by train.

I can recommend Bunnahabhain (pronounced Boonaharven I was told by the salesman) and Lagavulin.

Especially (here he goes again), the Distiller's edition of the Lagavulin.  Unbelievably smoky, peaty and smooth - with a very long lasting after-taste.
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

I heard from my whisky seller that he cannot buy this whisky anymore.  :( >:(

So

Do any of you guys collect the good stuff, or is drinking it just too pleasurable..

In other words, do you see a rare malt as a possible investment ? I know I do :)

For Example:

Auchentoshan 18 YO 58.8%

I'm looking at Islay and Jura Malts for christmas purchases so any recommendations would be fantastic :)



Ash is right re HP. Another classic 'bog standard' as he puts it is Old Pultney (Wick).

This distillery stands on a rocky storm lashed shore in the shadow of the rugged Cuillin Mountains. The Carbost Burn runs into the nearby loch.

The mineral rich water from the springs on Cnoc na Speirag runs through the heather & peat that contibutes so much to the flavour of this (I think) underated malt.

What Am I ?

You are a poor speller.

Cnoc na Speireag  = Talisker.
