I've taken a liking to the Islay whiskys, Laphroaig 10 yr old is my favourite so far.

True. I've tried a few of them so far, my fav is def the Laphroaig, that belt of smoke is just wonderfull Smile. Many seem to write off the Bowmore 12 yr old, but I really like it. I do enjoy a drop of whisk(e)y from time to time! Wink

Michael Jackson was also rather partial to a cheeky 12 year old that went down easily.

Had some overseas visitors recently who were looking to buy a Scotch, so I was taking them through the bottles I had in the house so they could get a feel for the different styles. The Laphroaig 10 year old was far too smoky for their liking, but I surprised myself at how pleasant the 12 year Bowmore was. I'd been underrating it too. They bought the Bowmore.

Last night I helped a mate to follow a family tradition: celebrate the birth of his first child by getting drunk on Port.

I like that tradition...

But Michael Jackson is a famous whisky expert. Where's the joke?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Whisky-De...oks&qid=1264331524&sr=8-2

Wink

Had a premature Burns Supper due to diary alignment issues. It was a bring a bottle (or 2) affair. Enjoyed tastings of

Dalwhinnie 15 yo
Highland Park 18 yo
Strathmill 18 yo single cask bottling from Douglas Laing
Glenturret 16 yo single cask bottling from Douglas Laing again
Laphroaig quarter cask
Highland Park 12 yo

There was also a Springbank 11 yo, and Old Pulteney 12 yo which didn't I didn't like, but another one of the party had the Springbank top of the pile.

On average we voted the Dalwhinnie top on the night, partly because it took us by surprise as to how nice it was.

Haggis was very nice too.

Hope our forum admin has the night off tomorrow night  Smile
