I've not tried any NZ whisky to be honest. I'll have to get a bottle and let you know what it is like. There are plans for a new distillery to be made down south, I believe construction has already, or is soon to start.

The last postcard I got was from the Islets of Langerhans.

Did Dr. Banting say hi?

I've seen the Milford 10 at a couple of stores in the area, and keep meaning to give it a try one of these days...I'd be interested to hear what anyone else thinks of it, too...

Looking forward to hearing comments about that Milford, and others from New Zealand!

Yet another obscure Canuckistani reference....

Today's postcard was from the Isle of Lussay. Somebody has a lot of 'splainin' to do!

Mark & Di Blasi:
We tried the Milford 10 yo at a tasting Oct 2004 and I acquired one of two available bottles.(Distilled 1992;Bttld 2003; Batch 12M39; 1252 bottles)
Nose: Sweetish with clover
Colour; Pale gold
Finish: Long
Comments: Fizz following delicate smoke, a very nice dram.
Note: Jim Murray gave it an 89 and noted Barley sweetness.

Sorry for the scarcity of notes- it was the 14th dram after a flight made up of 3 Royal Lochnagars (12, 18 & 23 yo), Singleton of Auchroisk 1981, Old Pulteny 12yo and a Royal Brackla 18 yo. Actually not such bad notes on reflection.

Not bad, Pete...I'm not sure I'd be able to read my tasting notes after 14 drams...thanks!

Has to be the Talisker for me... I just adore the spiceyness. Wonderful stuff which I find hard to get in Ireland but it's cheaper to get on the net anyway :roll:

Ardbeg edges out Laphroaig, with Talisker not too far behind
