    My dad was licencee of a number of function suites many of whom were whisky orientated. Hence why i got into it, being often in charge, and able to sample to 100+ malts

    I never have gained a taste for bourbon - it just tastes like very poor quality whisky to me .

    Nice bottle.. Yeah bourbon, like whisky has good and bad ones.
    It's a different drink and needs drunk differently imv. A bit warmer and take less at a time. Also give it air.
    A nice pappy is heaven although pricy now. Weller wheated is nice and rich too

    Just picked up a Dalmore King Alexander III as a little chrimbo present for myself.

    Dalmore King Alexander III Bottling Note

    A sextuple-wood bottling from Dalmore. This auspiciously-named dram was matured in wine, Madeira, Sherry, Marsala, Kentucky bourbon and Port casks. King Alexander III is a rich, fruity Highland single malt.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose:*Malty and utterly Dalmore. Seville orange zest, Parfait Amour, malty cereal, barley and chocolate. Creamy vanilla fudge, tropical fruit with a vaguely vinous quality.

    Palate:*Medium, rounded. Winter berries, spice, zesty orange. Liqueurs emerge; Grand Marnier, kirsch and Frangelico.

    Finish:*Peppery with well-integrated oak and the claret makes a last minute appearance.

    I would not buy it at full price.
    I am travelling through an airport, and they had an offer on. So I bought the Mrs a bottle of perfume. This gave me 50% off a basket up to €300. So I took this and a bottle of Highland Park 16 Wings of an eagle travel edition or something.

    The Mrs will be happy that I thought of her, but not as happy as I hope I will be with these purchases.

    On the downside, the flight is delayed.

    In appearance, that reminds of me of a bottle of 'Hai Karate' aftershave from the 1970s

    Seriously though Mark, enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

    I always feel sad for those who are (or have been) less fortunate than me in life and love.
