    I'm trying to imagine what Whisky and Marmite taste like together and realise I can't do it .

    Peanut butter (must be the 'crunchy' variety) and Marmite go well together on toast.

    Neither have I. The only thing I might mix with my whisky is water.

    I'm now drinking a whiskey from Dufftown and it doesn't taste of Marmite at all! Marmalade and aniseed notes, but not Marmite. Must be a duff bottle from Dufftown.

    Lots of distilleries in Dufftown . It has the most and us said to make more for treasury in taxes than any other place.
    The beast of Dufftown is Mortlach distillery.

    One of Dalmore's travel fortuna merita collection today.
    First opening of the year, and may be last for a while.
    Dalmore Dominium 43%.

    Stunning this.. Lots of fruits. Pineapple is one that creeps out from under the sherry, ginger cinnamon etc. Smooth and warming, and very, very drinkable. Too drinkable. A nice controlled finish too.
    Lovely stuff.

    That a tough one to answer as some of the wood used is exotic. They used their connections with Gonzalez Byass to draw from rare and valuable sherry casks. They were 30yrs old and you can taste all those fruits. Bloody marvellous stuff. Also good white oak giving some rich tannins in this..
    Whiskies I am betting will be about 6 up to about 20 I think
