    A customer gave me a bottle of Glenmorangie today. Really happy about that, never tried it as it’s one of those that is never on offer.

    That's great, tasting notes look nice.

    Did a search on the forum for Glenmorangie and apparently you got a bottle of it from work in 2019 Bryn. Is it the same person, and if so do they need any library stuff sorting?

    Shit, I forgot about that! I did you’re right, it was a small 35cl and the guy was a Forest fan in Kirkby.

    Bugger, I thought I’d got a new one under the belt.

    Feel bad now, but a good gift. Especially as it seems pricier than others on the market

    Sampled the Glenmorangie, again
    Can’t remember my thoughts last time but impressed. Getting a toffee aroma with a bit of lemon, a bit floral and spicey to taste, some honey. A drip of water softens things dramatically. Really smooth and one to savour.

    That used to be one of my favourites when I had a drop. It used to be really popular years ago. Must admit I like the Irish stuff now, always seems smoother.

    Probably the triple distilling method?
    I’ll take the plunge and try an Irish single malt at some point, had a look on the whisky exchange and there are some for not much north of £40.

    I’ll pop round with my pipette and sampling glass.

    Morrison’s are absolutely killing it with their rum special offers.

    You owe it to yourself to try all of these.

    Mrs S says she is going to get me some.
    She said she would really be pleased to see me get the wood.

    Had to go to the hellhole that is Asda earlier so I picked up the Bowmore 12. A bit spoilt for choice now on Vinyl Night.

    I enjoyed the Bowmore No1 which I don’t think has an age statement, so it’s going to be interesting to compare the two.

    Love Ralfy, that’s a great idea with the caps as well

    Had to try it early after watching that review.

    He’s spot on about it being sharp and smells a bit like Sherry. Can’t smell peat but it hits you straight away on taste.
    I think if you find the exact right balance with added water it’s okay. I’d be disappointed if I’d paid the full RRP of £40, for a 12 y/o you expect more, but it’s decent enough at the discount price.

    I had to look it up.

    Not that but tried adding something I like to something that isn’t very nice, it’s one of Ralfys tips but have to say it didn’t improve things at all.

    Sampled the Balvenie last night.
    Rather decent.
    Rally’s review is spot on though... lacks real depth.
    Should have been distilled to 46%.

    Poured myself a drop of the Moray tonight. Before I tell you how it tasted, I'll tell you that today was stressful and I wasn't having fun. I tend to pick my teeth with my tongue on days like this but today it got sore so all I tasted was pain.

    Fgs.

    Thought I’d try something different and saw this in Morrissons for £16.
    No age statement but quite nice, surprisingly smooth and definitely worth paying that amount for.
    A bit of a custard aroma on the nose, apples and toffee on the palate. Short finish, as expected.
