    Ralfy, you are so right. I also love to sit in the courtyard of old Distilleries, watch the people and soak up the feeling.

    I prefer the reviews and the extras just the same. Also, the philosophy.

    Only thing missing from one of these types of videos is a cigar, will you ever do more cigar reviews down the line Ralfy?

    Enjoying my first dram of Craigellachie while watching this extras episode and yes we do like the extras, perhaps more than a normal review, but the fact of the matter is they are all GOLD. I let the Craigellachie breath for a half hour after pouring about 3 oz. into an infinity bottle to allow it to open up, based on your previous reviews. I do like it, time for the 2nd. pour.

    The smell and the stoor are the heartbest of a distillery.

    Glad to hear that you're working on another book Ralfy, I thoroughly enjoyed your first. I appreciated that you touched on the meaning of money in this video. This is not discussed enough I'm afraid.

    I feel the same about old books…the hands that held them. Perhaps it was one of their owner’s few since for much of history books were a luxury. Just love your sincere appreciation. ❤️. Have a wonderful week Dear Sir!

    Ralfy, If in a burst of creativity I came up with a malt mention, where would I send it?

    Your right Ralfy. Some of us do like the Xtras more than the reviews!!! Me too. But the reviews seem needed to understand the current state and consistency of the whisky we have available to us right now. Thanks for the Xtras Ralfy!

    Hi Ralf, I think a lot of us here value both the reviews and the extras equally. Unfortunately I do not have the budget that allows me to join you in every tasting. When I can join you, the reviews have always enhanced my tasting experience by providing a sense of familiarity with a spirit. Extras, on the other hand, are something I can listen to in my spare time, such as on a ride to work, and simply learn more about the field we all love. Both have provided quality information and have helped me gain experience in different ways! And I certainly plan on joining you in many more reviews in the future, specifically Dalmore Cigar Malt (just kidding…) I would not object to a ralfy podcast discussing all things whisky!!! Hope all is well, thanks again for all the awesome content!

    Whisky stored in fish barrels … Fishky?

    Thank you Ralfy! I went along with you on your whisky journey a few years ago and it has been a most fascinating time. I am appreciating my whiskies so much more nowadays.

    Very interesting video. I'm liking the extras more except when I'm watching a review on a malt that I have and can enjoy along with the video, or if it's on one that I am particularly interested in or thinking of buying. Having said that, I have watched some random and new videos here and there too, and they are always good and also come with extra information and interesting thoughts that make it worth while.

    Hey Ralfy. I didn't really watch the review closely, because that whisky isn't currently available in Australia (that I could find). The Extra's are always applicable everywhere.

    “Barrels used for fish were dreadful when used later for whisky”…… absolute magic….. have those who gave a thumbs down actually listened to what this bloke is saying?

    Why don’t you give us a discourse on the nature of money? Perhaps on the philosophy channel?

    someone should tell Ardbeg about the importance of distillery only bottlings/distillery experience. Only distillery on Islay that doesnt seem to care about that.

    Ahh, nothing better after a long working shift to watch a Ralfy ramble and enjoy a good HP 21j @47.5%. I always love your anecdotes and your way of "how you see things" with an philosophical touch 🙂 Greetings from Switzerland
