Very nice pictures Mattbuty! Edradour looks very idyllic indeed! Photos from distilleries often look a little dark and even unwelcoming and very unlike your pictures of Edradour. Nice to see a different angle like the "top view" picture of the still.

It's pretty good, but I don't thing it's fantastic. A bit like the 17yo when I compare my notes with others on the forum. It's not that powerful on the palate, but the finish is actually quite nice. I like sherry finished though...

This is what my current stash looks like. Can't wait till I have my own place again, so I can get a nice display to put this in...

Not a bad start, right? I remember exactly when I bought my first malt (Bowmore 1989, 16yo) because I also got Michael Jackson's 'Companion' on the same day, unfortunately the day he died. That certainly gave that purchase some additional meaning...

In fact, it's completely gone. I have too many other things I want to taste, so I won't be replacing that one shortly. But it will get replaced if I happen to stumble across one with 35 EUR to spare...

My whisky tastes like tourists walked through it!

Nice little stash you have, Mcc. Tell me, what do you think of the Glenfarclas 15?









Heh heh...just kidding. What about the Japanese one next to it?

Not that one again lol. It's not to my taste but I might have a go at the 30yo you suggested (might have been somone else can't remember). Hopefully going to get a cask st' Bruichladdich at the W/E :D.
The jap one is nice imo quite like speysiders in its sweet component but with a little bit of spice also. Im not much of an expert on jap whiskys tbh, in fact I know nothing about them.

Which one is it? I'm sure some will recognize right off, as easily as most of do SMS bottles, but I can't quite read the label.

CS Laddie is really nice, by the way. If you get one, try a little experiment in counterintuitiveness--have some after a monster peaty Islay. It's an interesting effect.

Congrats IWC. And what a very beautiful photo.

Last year I holidayed in South Africa and volunteered at a monkey sanctuary. This is one of the little orphan vervet monkeys that I was protecting from scary, um, cleaning brushes, while Mr.Treacle got the job of cleaning out the cages.

Matt - yes, my monkey's absolutely delightful :D

LSD - they're Brasher boots and I wear them nearly all the time cos they're such good boots. The soles have started to go on my old Scarpa boots, and I have some Karrimor KSBs that I make my niece wear when I take her walking - try putting gaiters on a trendy teenager...that's fun :roll: Do you go walking (probably not in pink boots tho)?

Great picture Treaclesponge - very cute monkey!

Had the pleasure of preparing tomorrows dinner which will be "Pinnekjøtt" - a traditional meal in the western parts of Norway. It's what people in these parts usually have as Christmas Eve dinner.

Basically - and it really is basic - it consists of separated ribs from a single side of a lamb's rib cage. After the animal is slaughtered the rib cage is hung up and dried for a long period. You can of course buy the separated ribs but part of the charm is to use the saw and do it yourself. It's perhaps slightly morbid that I just watched the second season of "Silent Witness" (Tv series about Forensic Pathology) prior to sawing the ribs apart.

After having been left in cold water for 24 hours the ribs will be steamed and served with tatties and neeps. Dark ale and akevitt is also needed on the side but I'll try the Linkwood from Dun Bheagan instead.

Fantastic stuff that "Pinnekjøtt!" Nice posting Mr Fjeld. Did you forget to mention it's salted for a week before being hung to dry? It certainly is weird the first time you eat it as it's not "classic" American ribs. The fat, bone, meat and everything else is all over the place, you gotta pick around to the good stuff, and when it's good "Pinnekjøtt," it's really really good!

I guess I did :) and in addition to that the missus have corrected me as it's left in cold water for 12 hours not 24...

Yes, it's lovely but looks like something from a close fight between Lt Ripley and Aliens.......

I think my fiancee's family leaves it in water for 24 hours too. I think it's maybe best that way to make sure the salt is removed.

I guess there are many ways to skin a cat because Bente and her mother leave it in water late in the evening before - but they change the water in the morning. Today's dinner was nothing less than fantastic - and it's strange that such a "primitive" dish can be so delicious. The Linkwood 10 yo Single Cask Dun Bheagan was a good match with the meat also. I think it's best to avoid smoky or heavily sherried whiskies to food like this.

Nice to hear dinner was such a hit, I knew it would be!!! I think they, the fiancee's family, also change the water in the morning now that I think about it. But either way, soaked in water for some time to re-hydrate the meat and remove some of the salt is the idea here. Damn Mr Fjeld, you shoulda invited me over for that!!!!
