    If you enjoy quality (proper beer) it's a lovely one. Got it before Christmas in a mixed case in Lidl, Got a few more to try

    Decided to open the Arran 10.

    Rather nice. Not too complex and has a little burn at end which is controlled with a teaspoon of water. Fruit and Heather for me.
    Think I will have another..


    its a nice craft bottle and label with a wooden stopper so stylish too. not bad for money. Think it retails around 38 from memory but I paid a bit less, buying when I did.
    Its deffo a nice little dram you can sup at happily all evening if you wished. Nice and light

    As an accompaniment to tonight's meal (picture at https://theartofsound.net/forum/show...-Today/page767), we enjoyed this:

    2018 Maison Gillard Dole des Monts, Valais, Switzerland



    Awarded a Gold Diploma, 'Expovina' Internationale Weinpramierung, Zurich 2019

    25% Gamay and 75% Pinot Noir grape. 13.5% ABV About 13 a bottle.


    This is only the second bottle of Swiss wine I've tasted, and unlike the first reported here, I really enjoyed this one.

    Nice earthy nose, the taste starts as tart cherry finishing towards almond.


    The blurb on the bottle states:

    Nose: red fruits, strawberry, raspberry and cherry

    Taste: fruity start, silky soft tannin, beautifully rounded

    Can be drunk with red and white meats, charcuterie and cheese.

    Arran is a very enjoyable malt.

    Birthday pressie..

    Wolfburn Langskip.

    The wolfburn distillery was rebuilt after closing and becoming a ruin about 150years ago. When open tho it was the biggest distillery in area.
    I'm guessing this is 5 Yr old as that's how long they have been making it.
    I thought it right to lend sd one support. This is cask strength so being new too will need Liberal watering lol

    Just back from our usual weekly jaunt up to the Highlands...

    Treated myself to an 18 year old bottle of Glenrothes for lifting 2 more of the Scottish Manhood stones... And because I fancied a lovely sherried dram for a change to my usual peaty drops

    Picked up this bottle of wine in Tesco. No idea if it's good but I loved the name.

    It's from Leasingham
