Kilchoman. Its Brill. Laphroaig is still the best though.

Will put Laphroaig on the list, although now queued behind the Glenmorangie and another Kilchoman and the rate I drink it that will probably make it a Christmas pressie. Which is no bad thing.

Laphroaig is definitely quite far along towards the seaweed and, dare I say it, disinfectant end of the scale. If pubs were open you could try a dram there and see what you think before ordering a whole bottle.

I just got a decent deal on a bottle of Aberlour 12yo (almost the other extreme from Laphroaig) from Amazon for £28. The smell is truly glorious to me.

For some reason the blooming obvious of try it in the pub hadn’t occurred to me - probably because I go there once a month tops.

But it’s a top tip!

Now all I need is the pubs to open again.

Just make sure you’re going to a pub which you trust isn’t filling all the bottles from a barrel of Asda’s own brand in the cellar.

Laphroaig does smell like TCP. It's a bit of an acquired taste but worth it.

Cloggy, highland park is lovely, less severe than dome but still with some peat and honey. Have you tried Scapa? It's the other one from Orkney and has no peat at all. It isnt put through as many distillations as it used to be back in the day bit it's still very pleasant and a bit different to other whiskys.

Dis took me to a very famous whisky bar in Glasgow, which had shelves of whisky all the way to the victorian-height ceiling. Bastard made the pretty barmaid in a short skirt climb the library ladder to the second top shelf to get an ancient bottle of Glenfarclas down. Memorable on so many levels.

(Sorry I don't visit here often chaps. Been a funny few years and the NHS doesn't allow the breathing space it used to. Do you need me to re-introduce myself?)

PS It was a long time ago, pre-Germany

Nice to be back. Funny how you can get out of the habit. I got to the stage at work where there was so much pressure I was forgetting to take a piss let alone look at CTF. A bit more time on my hands now. PM me a catch up of your life, would be great to hear. Similarly, would love to hear from KM too
