Right, Dominic has suggested Thursday June 18th for the next whisky booze up, I’m thinking about Oran Mor as, although I enjoyed the Pot Still, the lack of a menu and its early closing time kinda put me off, plus we don’t have to leave Oran Mor when we need food.
Recently I’ve been buying far too much whisky as well as a bottle of Mezcal to make the drinks cabinet look a bit less lop sided. Bought a bottle of Bruchaddich Bourbon Cask 16 yearold and the BenRiach 12 yearold Peated malt with the Tawny Port Hogshead finish, I cannot recommend these whiskies enough but they are both in excess of 30 quid and I know that’s pushing it for some of you.
Malt of the month has been more of a tricky one this month with Tesco going out of it’s way to offer some great deals.
So I’m going to suggest the Aberlour 10 yearold for the Malt of the month but I would also like you all to consider if you have the spare cash to look at both the Chivas Regal 12 yearold “Pure Malt” which is blend with no grain and the Balvenie DoubleWood both on offer and both well worth a look.
On other whisky related topics, The Gathering is coming up soon in Edinburgh and if you’re around a small group outing might be in order. And Oddbins have a few bottles of the Ardbeg Supernova the peatiest monster malt they’ve ever produced! It’s steep at 74 of your hard earned notes, but come on now chaps.
Right, hope you make a purchase and enjoy the selections and with any luck see you in a couple of weeks.
