Did I bring whisky with me?  I can't remember.

We both did, not sure if Chris did though.

Oh.  Then it would have been the Lagavulin.  Same bottle.  I've only got about a quarter left.

Oh I've got other whiskys to keep me going!  The Lagavulin I keep for special occasions now.

Lagavulin - Gadz! Far too peaty for my delicate tastes when it comes to a dram.

Slim mentioned Glenlivit earlier, now your talking. Even a Glen Garioch from the local village - fine. The Still Man'a a good lad.

Reg, eight years. Far to much discipline mate.


Ron

The Quarter Cask Laproaigh is a nice one too. I'm glad my taste is not that delicate. :)
But 8 months would already be serious restraint, let alone 8 years!

To be fair, I don't drink a lot of whisky - its a drink I like to savour at the end of a night rather than make a night of drinking it.  If that makes sense.

Um - not drinking a lot of whisky?

That kind of changed over the weekend.  Friend and I polished off a bottle of 18yo Glenlivet over Sat night and last night.  Soooo easy to drink.

Could be Andrew.  I'm an ex-smoker so tend to prefer more intense flavours I guess due to damaged taste buds?


In that case give Suntory Yamazaki a try, Reg - very tasty. Only tried the 12YO myself. http://www.suntory.com/yamazaki/12and18year.html

I'm currently drinking something called Snow Grouse - comes in a nice semi-opaque bottle, and it's a chill-filtered Scotch intended to be drunk "seriously chilled" (the whisky, not you).

Now you might be thinking they've come up with a way to market a blended whisky that's too rough to be drunk at the usual temperature.

I'm afraid you'd be right. Still, only £15-something. I got two bottles for that, the first and the last.

I'm currently working my way down one of the bottles I got at the airport on the way to Dublin last month. It's a special edition Ardbeg called "uigeadail" (pronounced "oog-e-dall"), 54.2% ABV non-chill filtered it is stunningly smoky.


Reg

Ooooooooh.  That sounds niiiiiiice Pete.

I remember that one, Pete and indeed it is nice and peaty.....

Just wondering if any of you peat lovers smoke cigarettes? Each to their own palette of course but its such a strong flavour I'm interested to see if there might be any link/correlation
