Whisky Reviews

Ok so we had a good book and a good dram thread so why don't we have a whole thread dedicated to the Water of Life. Here we can post deals we see in the local markets, reviews and personal opinions of this wonderful drink with so many tastes.

Give some to a child who has never tasted it before and they will spit it half way across the room. It all tastes like shit and I can't understand why anyone ever has it a second time!

A product with a history of world wide sales can't be shit. A personal taste sure but that applies to anything. I'm not a regular drinker of the stuff but at the right time, drank at the right pace and in moderation it is a pleasure.

Balvenie, Cragganmore, Macallan

this is exactly what I mean we all know what we like but why don't we put a in depth personal review of each single malt or even blended granular whisky's it might make us try something out of our ordinary tastes and we might just enjoy it.

OK cragganmore is a sweeter easy drinking dram that I love with pancakes. Very smooth and a good starter for folk working their way up to isla malts.

Generally not my thing but I remember my dad bought a case of Bruichladddich about 20yrs ago, he still has a few bottles left from that - I guess that would make them near 30yrs old now! However I guess (not professing any knowledge of the subject here) that it'd not continue to age because it'd be in a glass bottle instead of a cask?
Saw the film 'The Angels' Share' the other night - a great laugh! :D

I loathe the stuff but can have a wee go now and then.

I did however have a night some weeks ago with a bottle of royal lochnagar. That was a revelation. So everyone has a whisky.

You're correct that whisky only matures in the cask.  As a worker in the whisky industry (and a teetotaller) always like reading these kind of threads.
