Hey, if you're actually here and come to where I live, I'll get a bottle of 12 for the occasion.

So last night I had a cocktail made of rye, coconut water and bitters. It was gods damn delicious. The bitters perfectly balanced the sweetness.

For some reason the 12 matured to a 16 while I wasn't looking. I apparently bought the wrong one.

I fear cries from you all of "Shun the non-believer! Shuuuuun!" when it comes to my tastes in Scotch, because I like them to be more sweet than with peat. Glenmorangie, Glenmorangie Lasanta and Auchentoshan are particular favourites of mine.

I was given a bottle of the Lagavulin 12 for my birthday last year. It was definitely smooth, quite lovely.



I've got to admit I have a real thing for Laphroaig Quarter cask. I bought myself a bottle two years ago as a break-up present. There's just something about the smokiness I enjoy.

Other than that, I don't know much about Scotch, to be honest. I've had Chivas and recently bought myself a bottle of "Monkey Shoulder". No idea what that's going to be like.

I'm really loving the trend of reusing whiskey barrels to age beer. The only downside is it almost ruins non-barrel aged beer for me.

Ohh yeah. Definite case in point for me is Brewdog's Paradox (Isle of Arran) beer which I believe is brewed in Jura barrels. (Being that they're a Scottish company, I wouldn't expect any less!)
It's 15% proof too, so in honesty I don't think it'd be wise to drink any other beer after that...!

'Help' is a big word. 'Hinderance' might be more accurate.

Anyway. A Port Charlotte was bought. It's old and from an independant bottler so it was horribly expensive. Haven't opened it yet but I drank some in the store and it is manna from heaven for those enamoured of Islay.
