Not a local brew, but New Belgium Brewery Snow Day. A beer I do not know what to make of, though I am fairly certain I do not like it.

Ruined it with too much water, and learned the hard way their is no salvaging it through adding more whisky.

Long story short I now have a giant glass of Cloudy Caol Ila that tastes like a bad cocktail.

Berrys' Own Selection 1994 Bowmore bott. 2008 46%

Mmmm! For me this is quite different to most Bowmore whisky I have drank (which I've never be overly fond of) and I have really enjoyed drinking it. Nearly at the end of the bottle :shock:

Murray McDavid 1994 Mortlach 15yr 46%

If anyone knows of any other good Mortlach bottlings (though reasonably priced) could you PM me please. This was the first I've had from this distillery, and I'm personally very impressed.

Another one of this beer. Pretty good but not great. Rather fruity with some piney hops.
