    As I'm feeling particularly poor, a wee (double) dram of Glenfiddich. An annual Christmas gift from my daughters. Both, sitting at the table with me. Both wondering if they should learn to embrace the creature. We ('She', myself, & 2 no longer tax deductions) are between casas, & staying with the in-laws. Need I say more.

    Knob Creek single barrel cask strength (120 proof). It could use some water, frankly.

    GlenMorangie Quinta Ruban and Laphroaig Brodir

    I have more than 25 single malts in my whisky cupboard and for the most part at sometime each of them is my favourite, especially the Islay whiskies.... lately though my tastes have gone toward port cask finished whiskies and GlenMoragie's Quinta Ruban fits that bill and is lovely. Laphroaig has also offered a port cask finished expression and it is incredible, nothing like the usual age statement or quarter cask offerings. I was told that Laphroaig Brodir, is only sold in duty free shops at airports and as I was returning home from Scotland through Heathrow, that is where I purchased it

    I really must try the Brodir the next time Iím abroad; I had Quinta Ruban for the first time earlier this year and I was floored by what the port cask finishing added to the flavor.

    That was the first cask strength whisky I ever had and I learned then that a wee drop of water, just a tear, really cuts the alcohol and opens up the flavours hidden beneath the alcohol "burn"

    You will not be disappointed .......There is a great difference in TASTING whiskies , and DRINKING them......The first tasting I ever went to the presenter explained....I'm not here to teach you how to drink whisky, you already know how to do that. I am here to teach you how to TASTE whiskies....and he was absolutely right......
    in an evening that starts with tasting whiskies, if you don't spit (I can't bring myself to do that) after the first 3 offerings, you really stop tasting and start drinking.....but there is nothing wrong with that.
    After tasting a whisky you will know what to expect when you just want to DRINK whisky......never be afraid of adding a drop of water it really does cut the alcohol and open up all the flavours especially the subtle ones that come in the after taste
