Talisker 10. It was good, but I don't think that was what I was in the "mood" for. I was probably too tired to have enjoyed the experience. I know it sounds like blasphemy but I am a "mood" drinker.

Sorry, Mr.F, they were all out of it. :(

:) No problem Swedish Chef, if I manage to get one first I'll let you know what I think about it.

I had a great time and a couple of good whiskies at the tasting yesterday :thumbsup: After the tasting I also had a couple of Dupont Natural 1994 Vintage Calvados. If you like dry french sider then this is a massive hit - satisfaction guaranteed!

Thanks, Mr.F!

I went with Redbreast 12. I haven't had it in a while for some reason. I guess I was in a SMS kick. Not that it's a bad thing.

A Cosmopolitan, a little Merlot and then I went to the Malt Shovel in Edinburgh for some jazz and Glenlivet Nadurra. I like it there and they have a good range of whiskies. I was quite surprised to be offered ice in the Nadurra.

The trivia bar I was at last night only serves "pre-whisky". One Sam Adams and one Fosters.

Last night I opened the bottle of William Larue Weller Bourbon I had. Initial impression is WOW. Extremely smooth, especially for the proof (62.65%). Nice sweetness on the nose with sugar and vanilla. On the palate it starts really smooth, then the sugary flavors of vanilla and sweet spice develop, and it leaves a nice sweet, drying finish. Very good IMO.

I'll do a more detailed note on this next time around, but I was really impressed!

Earl Grey with a piece of cinnamon bark in the pot. A friend of mine introduced me to this which he calls "Lebanese Tea" - which was a common way to drink tea in Lebanon while he served with the UN forces. It's good - but not "whisky good" of course

Had a few drams after a Christmas dinner yesterday.
(The place only offered 6 different Single Malts so there where really not that much to choose from.)
