    Ah, I thought you were talking about malt whisky! Well, you're in Scotland mate, not Kentucky, so hardly surprising that the selection of Burbon wasn't extensive...

    I should've thought you'd have had Jack Daniels and Wild Turkey, and that was yet lot! But any good bar in Scotland should have an extensive selection of malts.

    I also enjoy bourbon, I started drinking it a number of years ago when we first started visiting the southern States of America. You will usually find a good selection of malts in most decent bars and of course gin now.

    I love a good bourbon too, as it's quite different from whisky. Generally richer and more 'intense'

    But, we don't drink many spirits, so aside from malt whiskies, don't keep much of them in the house. The vodka, gin or any other white spirits we have, are strictly used as ingredients for cocktails!
