Got a bottle of that in Japan. Very tasty. It's like a slightly sweeter version of the Arran malt if anyone has tried that. Buying whisky in Japan was really difficult, all the aged stuff is either gone or incredibly expensive. Managed to get some nice 5 year White Oak stuff for my dad, but the bottle is tiny and it was pretty pricey.

I also bought some Nikka Coffey Grain that got confiscated in Amsterdam airport. Then I bought myself a bottle of Highland Park today to cheer myself up and I strawberry floating dropped it on the way home. I've honestly never felt so gooseberry fool.

I might sign up for this.

A different whisky in the post every month. It's only a 5cl taster, and so at £7 it's decidedly pricey, but it would be a nice way to try stuff I've never had before. Anyone else interested?

Too expensive for what you get. Would be better visiting a whisky bar instead.

I'm getting through my Talisker 10. I don't know if I'm mistaking the taste of medicine / TCP for 'smokiness' though? It's very smooth but not quite what I was expecting from an award winning bottle.

I'm on a week off after my birthday so I've been drinking whisky. I've been trying the usual suspects: Highland Park, Jura, Talisker Skye. All good. I got given a bottle of Inchmoan 12 for my birthday from work though and wow! It's challenging in a good way, it tastes medicinal, like almost like whisky jager but not as kitchy as that sounds in writing. I like.
