    I'm only about a year into a serious look at whiskey beyond just enjoyment with friends, but for personal enjoyment of the flavor. I have a lot more practicing to do!

    You can do this quite well with Laphroaig – the regular 10 is 40% but can go down to £25 on christmas sales. The 10 cask strength is pricey, but you can combine the two to produce something of medium strength that is more affordable.

    Ralfy, I think you’ve done this before! Somehow I have a vague memory of a review in which you tasted a Caol Ila 12yo (standard core range edition) and then "enhanced“ it with a teaspoon of a Caol Ila 12 independent bottling (either G&M or SV, possibly at cask strength). At any rate, I remember taking your advice and trying it out, and I was pleased as punch with the result! Cheers.

    I always like seeing Ralfy's face changing at the end as he becomes unsure whether the camera will turn off or not

    Just bought this Glenlivet today for the equivalent of 27 quid here in Bulgaria, based on you review. The normal 'Livet 12 was the first malt I tasted with the intention to explore and understand it, so it is kinda dear to me.

    The Bothy. Silence. Ralfy showing whisky bottles. Cowbell sounds from outside. Paradise?

    Ralfy, am I wrong in thinking you mixed up the glasses and put the third option in front of the official bottling just before the tasting, and then mixed them up during the tasting?

    I hoped you would say "Progressive…Rock" 😀 …but can you share a link to what you're listening? Me, being a musician myself, I am always curious about new tastes for my ears.

    The Bothy really exists. I found it on satellite last year.

    I was pessimistic about independent bottlings being available in NZ but was pleasantly surprised to see this one is.

    A whisky tasting (since cancelled by the lockdown) I was going to actually would have included these exact two glenlivets. Think when we finally get back together we might try this!

    Hi Ralfy, I realise you like the 46% strength. I see a lot of the time you add water, or perhaps that is just to open up the flavours for specific tastings..? If you are going to dilute it why would 40% not be ok to bottle it at so you don't have to add any water? Some people might not have mineral water to hand and tap water is not ideal. Or do you prefer the slightly more concentrated flavour full stop at 46%? Am sure you have covered this somewhere so apologies for repeating..

    There are very few people with three different drinks on the go that I would trust to make a stim of sense. However,Ralfy you pass the test with flying colours. Bravo!

    When I see a Signatory unchilled filtered collection, I snap it up, haven’t had a shite one yet.
