I got a bottle of peanut butter whiskey for my birthday. In small doses, it's really pretty nice.

I'm struggling to imagine the taste, but that might be either genius or a sign of the End Days.

Had a Balblair 18 yo this weekend....

It's a distillery in fine form... and rising up my league table of fav single malts....well taken with the 12 & 15 previously. The 18 was much more expensive but one of the best I've had in a while

Looking around my nearest supermarkets, I didn't find anything particularly fascinating, so I went online. The result? I took delivery today of a bottle of Port Charlotte 10yo from Amazon.

I paid a fair bit less than the price quoted on this site - https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/43962/port-charlotte-10-year-old - but their description is spot on. It's rather fab.

Just finished it, and have no reason to change my verdict. I'll be tracking the price for further discounts, but could well buy it again at full RRP.

Sole downside - just like Hendrick's gin and certain other brands of spirits in near-black glass, it isn't easy to see how much is left in the bottle. My last glass of it was a little small.

It has been reported that Macron and Johnson have bonded at the G7 summit over a glass of Bavarian Whisky.

Anyone tried it?

Never even heard of it, but apparently whisky-making is a fairly recent thing in Germany: https://whiskyoftheweek.co.uk/slyrs-single-malt-whisky/

It would be nice to have one of these:

A rare cask of single malt whisky has been sold by a Scottish distillery for a record £16m.

Ardbeg said "Cask No. 3" was bought by an unnamed female collector based in Asia through a private sale.

Experts said the sale had surpassed all auction records for a cask of single malt.

Last month, a cask of The Macallan 1988 whisky sold at auction for £1m, after being bought 34 years ago for just £5,000.

The Ardbeg spirit, which was distilled in 1975, was originally laid down to age in two separate casks before being transferred to a single sherry butt in 2014.

It contains sufficient spirit to fill 440 bottles, valuing each one at £36,000.

On holiday in shropshire I bought the huddart by old pulteney. At 46% it's got that warmer edge to it and a well balanced whisky I've come to expect from op.

I also bought an American oak 43% barrel reserve from Arran. This crew have made great strides recently.

Both very nice indeed.

Certainly helps to have some serious alcohol on hand when watching Fev 😉

On the way back would you believe it, we found ourselves in the car park at Balblair. So I treated us to a 15 & and 18 Yr old. 

Sensational. 

My absolute favourite. 

Highly, highly recommend.

Chickened out of a big whisky purchase and decided to split on an 18 year old rare Glenmorangie and a 16 year old Lagavulin.

Two very different drams with the Lagavulin peaty and smoky in comparison to the smoothness of the Glenmorangie.

Hopefully between them they’ll help pull me through the dark cold nights and into 2023.

Lagavulin is my favourite. For that reason I used to buy White Horse as its the base malt in it. Alas its very hard to source these days.
