    Fans like the steam and misty….it brings a vintage view to the review.. 1990s? Why does that sound so 1920s?

    Not whisky related, but I just bought a Carlo Gobetti Grappa, thanks for introducing the distillery to us. It's an amazing piece of work!

    I wonder what's your oppinion on Bruichladdich's "The Classic Laddie", Ralfy.
    On one hand it is bottled as an NAS whisky, but on the other hand Bruichladdich offers the possibility to enter the batch number on their website, which will then provide you with a complete list of casks used (and even the barley used for the whisky in each cask).

    Hey Ralfy, do you happen to have a business email I could reach out to you through? Thanks.

    I have fond memories of my stone garage having the same earthy characteristics of the Manx Bothy. It was a very cool place, at all times of the year, and a very cool place to hang around in.

    Ralfy I hope you'll consider breaking your no-NAS rule for Teeling's single pot still, which will be available for sale in the UK soon, and is a fantastic and important whiskey

    In 2020 I am looking for a quality spirit that shows its quality via basic oak, Bourbon oak. I am not looking out for finishes and wine casks and all that, I would rather taste the spirit character.

    I just finished and enjoyed your book very much. I hope that you don’t mind but I’m going leave it in one of these “mini library” boxes that we have around town. Hopefully it will introduce them to you and the world of whisky.

    I just got a bottle of Balvenie 14 Carribean cask. I read online that it's natural color. I emailed the distillery, but they haven't responded. Anyone know if it's natural, and they don't say so on the label?
    Also in whiskey challenges, the price of Scotch in America will rise 25% soon do to tariffs, as various European spirits have been tarrifed in retaliation for the EUs bourbon tariff.

    Meant to say Ralfy. When I came to Australia donkeys years back, I bought a dehumidifier as I live in the sub tropics. They can be noisy buggers but work like a treat.

    Excellent extras. I have a small 3 L barrel that is old enough I can use it as a solera cask. What is your opinion on adding young whiskey or new make? Is is something that needs to be added slowly to prevent a large change or can it be added a bottle at a time?

    Canada had quite a few excellent single malt distilleries that have popped up all over the country in recent years. Still in the early years, but some great value whiskies already. Especially using local wine region producers casks and as well peated. No Canadian peat yet, there is more then enough feeding the peat moss industry

    Be careful Ralfy lest ye turn into a whisky snob. In the past you have spoken very highly of an Antiquary blend and JW Green and probably some others that I have forgotten. Good quality blends are out there and and a man of your highly tuned senses should be capable of sniffing them out. This channel is heading towards a " nothing under 50 pounds " type of operation meaning that many malt mates will soon grow tired of watching reviews of products they either cannot afford or cannot locate.

    Hate to bring up morbid topics here but another thing cropped up as I was reading more about alcohol – the higher abv whiskys are universally praised as having more flavor and character, but there are medical publications online that suggest people avoid 50 abv entirely, regardless of the amount. Can you share any insight you might have on any medical evidence relating to 40+ abv and cancer?

    Such a bummer that the majority of life's small pleasures tend to be harmful, to varying degrees…

    Splashed out and tried this, got to say i was dissapointed, maybe expecting too much. To me it was no better than a cheap bowmore 12, in fact i prefered the bowmore. Just hope i can eventually deveop a palate to pick up all these different flavours, im unfortunately just tasting one taste cant pick out other flavours

    On the heels of your Queen Margot review (and in line with your age statement approach), Lidl are selling a 5-year-old blended malt named Glen Ochry for 14 pounds. My inexperienced palate found it eminently better than the better part of big-brand NAS blends I tried and I'd love to see it reviewed here, at some point!
