    Most of us wouldn't even realise that these single malts are mass produced at too fast a pace and are generally no more than 3-years old.
    They carry a premium to blended whisky, which is less than the aged single malts (the 10, 12, 15 years or more, distilled slowly to avoid the whisky becoming "hot", matured in casks and no added chemical colourants).
    They more closely resemble their cheaper blended cousins than the aged stated senior brands.

    P.S.: what does it taste like? At 45.8 % Ralfy would recommend adding a decent teaspoon of water, give it a gentle stroll around the glass (and that isn't a proper whisky glass in the photo!!)and savour the release of more subtle tones.
    It should also help ameliorate the effect of any "hotness" in the whisky.

    Lovely showcase for the El Dorado, Summit and Columbus hops. Hints of Um Bongo. Being drunk by the Congo.

    Iíll give you one guess what Iím drinking.

    Just catching up on the thread and my West Coast trip a few years back did see me in some very cool brewery/bars in Portland, Bend and San Fran. And yes Congo I did experiment! Drove 9 hours to SF and went to the hotel bar to discover they had the Bend brewery Iíd been sat in the night before on draft.

    But I must admit when we got to LA Iíd had enough and had to leave the hotel, which was all craft beer, to go get some PBR

    Oh FFS.

    Thank you very much.

    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    ĄDon't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive!

This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.Ē

    Oh this is a bit special. A collaboration between two Estonian breweries - PŁhaste and PŲhjala - called Intsikurmu - and itís a lush, tasty, juicy banger.

    I was given a 1974 armegnac for my fortieth, it is still unopenend. I promised myself I would wait until Forest are promoted before I would enjoy it.

    The fucker is getting cracked open on my 50th in four weeks. I can't run the risk of never enjoying it before I die.

    They're already fucked. The blue was meant to go with the fittings, as they're like blue glass anal beads on a mirrored plate.

    I do struggle to read in the light but, being a tight bastard didn't want to replace them until they broke, LED's last to long

    It’s a myth started by unscrupulous lighting sales people to make you buy new lights.

    There may be a certain amount of truth in this.

    Right I'm off down the supermarket for some ale and nuts. Gonna try and mix and match as much as Sainsbury's MOR selection allows me to.

    Got the footy acca on and ITV racing starts soon. The 50p each ways abound.

    There's a lot to that Mac DeMarco song "My Old Man".

    King Goblin Imperial. Bishop's Finger. Fullers 1845. Sainsbury's Taste the Difference IPA (Brewed by Marston's)

    3 Guinness in reserve.

    Let the fun begin.
