    A mainly digital setup with a musical amplifier and endearing 1970's speakers. A CD player that hardly ever gets used and a turntable that is good enough to remind my how enjoyable my old vinyl is. Some cables and things.

    Haha... Love it, Tony!

    Actually, I rather like the look of that. Do you chill it? I'm thinking, put some chunky glasses in the freezer, so they come out nice and cold and cloudy, shove some ice in and a slice of lime, and pour the Tequila over it...

    Default Any good daily Rye or whiskeys made in the U.K.?

    These are all daily drinks, nothing to expensive .
    I like dry whiskey so Bourbon and Rye are my usual drink.

    Quite dry and with a long finish.. Smooth too.
    Small batches from copper pot stills give it an interesting character.
    Opens up nicely with a very small bit of water.
    This looks really good.

    Grant,
    Pendleton 1910 12 year Rye .
    It took drinking it straight, with a splash of water and with a couple cubes of ice to find out it is best with a single ice cube.
    Ice brings out the Smokiness and with out thinning it.
    I really like that it is smoother than most Rye whiskeys.
    It is more expensive than Crown Royal Rye but about the same in quality. Sadly Crown Royal Northern Rye is hard to find right now but I can still get regular crown Royal blended whiskey easily and thats not a bad way to go either .
