    Not at all... My usual is Laphroaig, but whenever I happen across a singleton I do find it eminently quaffable. I might lower the tone with this Highland Park, which was on offer at Tesco... Surprisingly nice, if a little pointy around the edges.

    Currently drinking / in the queue (in between ibuprofen doses):



    Singleton
    Highland Park
    Talisker Skye
    Tamnavulin

    Impressive collection, Grant. I tend to have one or two on the go and replenish. Might be interesting to find the space to have a real selection to choose from. I'll think on that.

    By the way, I'm firmly of the opinion (reinforced by some expert whiskey drinking training I once took part in) that a splash of cool water in your whiskey is the correct way to drink most whiskeys... Or straight, never ice unless it's' throat burn'.

    Think it was about £55 when ordered. You should still pick it up under 70 tho

    Deanston 18. New bottle. Naughty me.

    one of my top 5 bourbon heavy malts.. a touch of fresh burnt cask in this that you only taste after a really fruity malt.. almost tastes like smoke. very rich this.
