Wonder if you get a discount for buying a case. Laughing

Do folks buy these whiskies for drinking or for putting aside as a future investment, I've done a search and there doesn't seem to be a name for folks who collect whisky.

I'd say it's an evaporating hobby as the angels surely do get a good share even with what you might think is a tight stopper. Very Happy

Still Game with Jack and Victor in the distillery is a cracker. Laughing

Its says it taste like salted caramel toffee and chocolate truffles, Turkish delight and a hint of balsamic vinegar. The palate opens with a soft gentle mouth-feel, before vibrant baked apples, oranges and honey, toffee and molasses balanced by double cream, cloves and aniseed. The finish is lingering and soothing with pecan nuts, leather and fudge notes.

What happened to good old fashioned Johnnie Walker red label that tasted just like whisky.

They don't half write some tripe about whisky lol.

Johnnie Walker Red apparently is "Soft and gentle, with sweet grain, sour apple, vanilla cream and white pepper. Caramel and toffee sweetness develops."

When I was running around the world Johnnie Walker was the most famous whisky and the reason was all the Japanese and Chinese drinkers could say its name, they had no chance of pronouncing the names of other whiskys like Glenfiddich and Glenmorangie so they always asked for Johnnie Walker.

I wouldn't want to drink whisky that tasted like balsamic vinegar anyway.

When I was there we used to drink Black Nikka and in Thailand it was Mekhong, but that was a rough headache drink.

A programme on BBC highlighted the dangers of drinking spirits in Thailand, apparently bottles with genuine looking labels stuck on contain methyl alcohol (methylated spirit) and are sold in local shops resulting in several deaths each year. The police say they have clamped down on the perpetrators, but it is still being sold, its said that the police are often bribed to look the other way.

One girl backpacker had got her friend to phone home to say she had awoke in the morning blind, she had made cocktails with what she thought was gin bought at a local shop the night before, she later died in hospital.

Bargain Booze once sold cheap bottles of some substance called White Spirit, I bought a bottle once and with one taste knew it was gut rot, I used the rest to clean the car screens. Laughing

I'll stick with the scotch that I prefer - Grant's, which you can afford to have five fingers of.

Bailie Nicol Jarvie was also a very nice scotch, but no longer produced.

Aye, there was a lot of them in the film Hangover 2. Laughing Heard there's quite a few in Benidorm too, no wonder folks are quiet about what they got up to whilst there. Shocked Laughing
