    Solera bottle. On your previous advice Ralfy I have had one on the go for 2 years. Always adding quality to quality. I have so far used eleven different single malts. It is producing a flavour rich, sweetish smoky experience. I find now that when buying a new bottle I have to take into account not only the providence of the whisky in question but also how it will fit into my Solera. Makes decision making a longer process but extremely interesting. Thanks Ralfy , as always, for the guidance 🙂

    I have a bottle of Monkey Shoulder. When it got down to about a cm from the bottom I started emptying all my near finished single malts into it, with the exception of all the peated malts. Now it's my personal expression of Monkey Shoulder 2.0

    Ralfy have you ever tried blending different high quality spirits? I suppose this would really just be some kind of cocktail at that point but I have a really nice bottle of 8yo Barbancourt Rhum and a bottle of Prunier Cognac and I've always been curious how there might go with some of the different malts I have.

    Great information as usual and very uplifting. I'm going take up the challenge after watching this few more times. Thanks Ralfy for continuing to share your experience with us and encouraging us on the journey.

    Had ~1/5th of a bottle of (v. flat) Black Label lying around, several drops of Ardbeg 10 (from a freshly emptied bottle) completely revived it and made it better than it ever was beforehand. Would recommend – cheers Ralfy!

    I bought a 2008 bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail at a liquor store recently. I was shocked to find such an old bottling. Do you think it will rate a 92? Cheers☺

    Glen Moddle 10 yo whisky (the Spirit of Imagination) is my personal blended malt, consisting of all sorts of good malts, from bottles that are running low.
    Works well with my model railway mates after every train show!
    As with all good things (including friendships), it's much more than the sum of its parts.

    Can't you just direct pour it into the glass or you need to give it time to blend?

    Hey Ralfy, speaking of blending malts together, do you have any “Bankrowburn” left? Such a catchy name! Thanks for your time.

    Excellent! nice extra . I blended a bottle containing 80% of singleton of dufftown then added about 20% of ardbeg 10. i'm expecting to get an improved singleton.

    Ralfy, quite a few of the modern cheapie digital kitchen scales will measure in both ml & fluid ounces, if a malt mate was procrastinating over the procurement of a graduated cylinder in order to blend…

    I really like balvenie with half a teaspoon of ardbeg.

    Thanks, Ralfy, can't wait to try this! I live in KY so decided I should learn Bourbon besides Scotch, found an interesting blend of bourbon, rye, and peated scotch called High West Whiskey Campfire – very interesting.

    Great video. Mixing is fun, ardbeg and pulteney are magical together.

    2 parts Wild Turkey 101 and 1 part Peat Monster plus a tsp water – goes well with a Partegas maduro

    Thank you for the video.  I am blending my own whisky due to the influence of you and John Glaser.  It is really fascinating experience, and sadly to say, my wife would not understand the romance in such journey.  Recently, I am also using mizunara oak stick to further mature some young whisky.  It is a complete experiment. One stick into non-age whisky from unnamed Orkney (46% non-chill filtered, no color), which was young and aggressive, has tamed the whisky much in a week or so.  Plan to age for longer but also afraid of too much wood influence that kill of the vibrant nature of the malt.  Cheers.

    By the time I got to the bottom of my first lagavulin 16, I was bored with it so I added some Evan Williams barrel proof. I thought it was very synergistic.

    Really helpful advice Ralfy. Will have a go with a bottle of G&M cask strength Ledaig 04 and Aultmore 12. Cheers

    Hello Ralfy,
    I did blend 1/3 Ardbeg 10 and 2/3 Glencadam 15 yr. I wonder how iT is gonna turn up in a week or 2. Very nice experiment, thanks for the idea.
    Greetings,
    Marcel
