    Got some chocolates from iain burnett in today.
    Thought I'd treat myself. Great with whiskies these.

    Dunno when I will try them, or what.

    Edradour 10.

    Quality full bodied stuff this. Sherry, fruits, vanilla, rum, fruitcake, it's all there and more.
    Complex from those super small stills.. They are as small as is legally allowed. When they made more, these stills were copied exactly

    Not tried it, no. Its a blend I believe that's sherry orientated.
    Should be rather nice as Max the whisky man is good. No age so its fairly expensive, thus suggesting there are some nice whiskies in it.

    might add the whiskies are not theirs.. their spirit isnt matured yet but think they are making it.. speyside and highland whiskies

    Robin,
    5 minuets from your house, Walk over say hi neighbor can I barrow a cup of Whiskey?
    Just sample a little and then buy the bottle you like. A new distillery ,Id buy a few bottles and put them aside .
    When they become big you will have some of their very first offerings to drink or sell at secondary prices.

    It’s part of the Ardgowan estate , the home of the Shaw Stewarts, their plan was to open a distillery for whisky and gin, but that s not happened yet. AS you say Max is very well regarded in the whisky world, I know its a blend and a fairly expensive blend. I was at a Burns Supper in February when one of the auctions was for a Whisky tutorial with Max which raised several hundred pounds.

    As yet they have still to build the distillery, the only way to have taste is in a bar that stocks or buy a bottle.
