Thread Name: BS: Question about Scotch
Subject: BS: Single malts
I will drink any single malt whisky, from lightweight to the heaviest smoky peaty jobs. However, though I may be a prosecco socialist, I am no millionaire. I definitely prefer the heavier peaty jobs. My two go-tos are Talisker ten-year-old (beware of those imposters, Talisker Storm and Talisker Skye) and Laphroaig ten-year-old (beware of the terribly inferior Laphroaig Select, but the Quarter Cask is very good). But today is my 42nd wedding anniversary, and, for the third year running, Mrs Steve has bought me a bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail. I think it costs about fifty quid, but, I tell you, this is by far the finest malt I have ever supped. It's dear, but it's 52% vol. so you get a lot of bang for your bucks. The damnedest finest dram I've ever supped. It's malt. Discuss.
