Found half a bottle of Glenfiddich in my cupboard. I know it's probably the cheaper end of the spectrum, but not bad for a freebie.

Here's the limited edition bottle I got back in June during the Irish gold open.

Looking through the whiskey/burbon collection I've got the following

Blue label bush mills unopened
Black bush unopened
2 x jim bean, one unopened and one half drank (got both in a duty free for a tenner!)
Canadian club, half drank
Jack daniels half drank
Wild turkey almost gone, about 3 shots worth left :cry:

that bottle above, the discription on the bottle

12 year matured in a oak cask, rich complex malt, sherry, dark chocolate and spicy notes.

I tried a sample before buying, its very nice, wouldn't mix it, maybe just have it over ice.

Looks very nice.

I'm out of whisk(e)y at the moment. Maybe invest in something nice for Christmas. Unfortunately my problem is that once opened I cannot resist polishing it off pretty damn sharpish !! So I try to abstain from purchase...

I have a 21 year old royal sulute and i must say for a whisky that is over a £100 quid for it i have had far better. Howver the packaging is nice you get a velvet bag that is the same colour as the bottle that is ceramic i think.

Oh man, I drank far to much Jim Bean today :fp:

I'm done for now, but I'm thinking a sore head is going to be all day tomorrow :|

So nice over Ice on it's own or with coke.

It's good stuff.. My favourite whisky by far.

Smokey, but sweet and light.
The 18 year old is sublime - but expensive..
