    as a standard 10 / 12 year old.

    Macallum
    Highland park
    Edradour
    Hibiki
    The Singleton

    Long time ago was a big fan of Islays but laphroig tastes like parrafin these days.
    Funny how tastes change.

    Got to say, I agree with all those, especially Macallum. Only issue I have with other whisky drinkers is that it has to be neat, no extras for me, but each to their own

    Couple of drops of water in some to liven them up, nothing else though. Certainly no ice and certainly no mixers.

    I'm a bit vague with wine. I normally stick with white, but I'm no expert. I like what I like.

    Customer put me onto a New Zealand Sav blanc, and I tend to stick with those since then.

    Managed to get a bottle of cask strength 60% Caol Isla once...blew everything else I've ever had out of the water....better with just a drop of water than at full strength though.

    Isn't that a bourbon (made from corn)? It's not a whisky (made from malted grain), it's a bit like calling a white rum (from sugar cane), vodka (from potato).
