Well folks, i just received this, my monthly mailing from a "leading whisky retailer" in London. It has to be said that they do source, sell, serve, and advertise some great whiskies...but this kinda takes the lemonade!! read on...
"This is just a quick note to remind you of our Whisky of the Month for March. For lovers of Macallan, this is a great opportunity to secure a bottle (or perhaps a few...) at a drastically reduced price, as well as getting £5 off your next bottle of Macallan Fine Oak.
For those unfortunate to be braving the current cold snap in the UK, a wee dram or two of Macallan might just be the tonic!!
Buy a bottle of THE MACALLAN FINE OAK 15 YEAR OLD and receive £5 off your next bottle of THE MACALLAN FINE OAK
With its characteristic pale colour and delicate taste Macallan Fine Oak is enjoyed by experts and discerning whisky lovers alike.
It has been matured for a minimum of 15 years in a unique, complex combination of European and American oak casks that have previously contained either Sherry or Bourbon.
The Macallan Fine Oak is a smooth and delicate Single Malt that is delicious served neat, with ice, or lengthened over ice with lime and soda or lemonade.
“I have for years played about in my lab with bourbon and sherry cask Macallan and come to the conclusion that a truly great whisky was waiting to happen. This could be it. You have to travel a long way to find a whisky with quite the same refreshing all round harmony as this. The balance is the stuff of legend…and genius.

Well blow me down!! I'm guffawing into my sleeve over here! Yessir, I'm REALLY interested...
...to know why they are so keen to sell a "leading malt" that goes so well with ice, lime, soda and lemonade!! Did JM add lemonade to his before awarding this masterpiece of mediocrity a score of 95?
