    End of another bottle. Clearing the dregs I think it's called.

    This is Tamnavulin sherry cask. Fairly cheap n cheerful this. Quite decent for under 30 notes.

    A fine Bourbon today. The Eagle Rare, 10yr old.
    It's not malt but it's smooth and warming. For money, and if you fancy starting on bourbon this is a very good start point

    I took a punt on this Austrian Gruner Veltliner' tonight for around a tenner and am absolutely blown away by its quality.

    The fruit is deliciously ripe and rich, somewhere inbetween Sauv Blanc and Viognier territory but it has an earthy, chalky steeliness and a bit of pepper on the finish.
    I will definitely be back for more!

    Just the local off-licence but worth looking out for this or other producers ...

    Dalmore Port Wood Reserve.

    46.5% no colouring. matured in American white oak and finished in Tawny port tubes.

    Caramel and sweet stewed fruits. Quite creamy. A bit of orange too. A slight dry finish.
    Quite powerful so water may assist. Nice tho



    edit, yes a half teaspoon is helpful in opening up and smoothing edges. a nice drop.

    growing on me more and more

    My last bottle of this.. Young but very tasty from what may be a distillery to watch.
