    Just a couple in case. Like to have something in incase.
    Mostly whisky I drink if I'm drinking which isn't often and not much. Not up to boozing now.

    Looks nice yes. Mortlach stuff was used for Johnny walker whiskies, probably still is.
    Signatory usually produce good bottling. Being cask strength it goes a lot further too

    My message here? Drink more wine and less whisky!!

    This is a really LURVELY slurp, for 8, from M&S: https://www.marksandspencer.com/jour...-6/p/p60028732



    Gorgeous blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon & Cabernet Franc, from a renowned maker in the Stellenbosch, combine to produce young (being a 2018 vintage), fresh, ripe and vibrant berry fruit flavours, and due to the warm South African climate, it has a smooth and silky finish, with little acidic sharpness. A very glugable red wine indeed, and highly recommended!

    This is linkwood 18yr old. Managed to pick up a few dram bottles as its impossible to find a bottle these days.
    Bottled by Hunter Laing in 2015..
    50%by vol so packs a punch.
    Fairly strong as you'd expect with a long finish.
    Plenty oak and honey. Lovely but it could do with a splash of water

    yeah, a pipette of water and its now nearer 40..opened up nicely now.fresh cut grass, finish is still long but flavours are all great..
    can see why this sold out.

    i will be looking for some linkwood
