    strathboag(blended) is bottled by macduff international in glasgow(not to be mixed up with macduff distillery in macduff) the madeup word strathboag from the gaelic would be large little valley work that out lol..
    its made obviously for the foreign market and is apparently smokey and a quite nice drink for the money, or so im told. im guessing the other scotch ones will be similar. sure that a bit longer aging in your tub might even improve them.. i dont like jim beam now.. it was the first bourbon i tried and thought it good til i tried others.

    Was reading a review today on bankers club scotch whiskey..

    https://www.totalwine.com/spirits/am...key/p/14700175

    it got a 3/5 and said with ice it was quite drinkable for a cheap price.

    might be an option for your cask if you can find it.. says its american but report i read said it was scotch imported in bulk and bottled over there.

    Bankers is here, but there are no more wood sugars left ,all this cask can do now is filter and mellow a little .It makes a nice decanter now.
    I am also not a Jim Beam fan but they are discontinuing their bottled in bond and it was very limited any way . I may use this bottle as trade one day because there is a huge amount of Jim Beam collectors here.
    I will have to give Bankers a try , I was looking for something that could be mixed , when people come over. Except the peated whiskey, I was told on recommendation it was a good enough to drink straight.
    I 'll try it Friday. BTW: The Carlyle stuff sells like crazy here, people buying it by the box of 4 x 1.75 liters. Boxes stacked up near the end caps, So I thought it must be worth a try as a good mixer.
    It out sells J.B. and J.W. red label as a mixer. I am not going to let friends dump coke over a nice 12 year old single malt.
    Yep, people really do that here. More often than not ,I'm afraid.

    And a hazelburn pic too..



    Hazelburn is a non peated offering from Springbank and both highly regarded and thus hard to find.
    A splash of h2o and your away.
    Superb stuff

    As I say it's not peated but there is a hint of smoke there which may be off the wood, or there maybe a very small % od smoked barley in it. Some peaches too. Been a while since I tasted it, and have been holding off from opening as its hard to come by..it sells fast as does most Springbank offerings

    Default Fake but Ill try it.

    I think this came from Moldova but who can be sure?
    Nothing tells its origin. It tries desperately to be French but fails.
    I got it in a world market.
