Has anyone else noticed that the vast majority of single malt bottles have corks and the vast majority of blended whiskies have screw tops, is there a reason for this ? it baffles me.

Corks are better to sniff.

Sainsbury's Single Malt Irish is a screw top - What does that prove ?

I said ' most ' not all.

Sainsbuy's single malt Irish may not be one of the best, but at £15 a bottle it ain't half bad.

Not in the Czech Republic, apparently. They've banned all spirits over 20% ABV, after a few fatalities from drinking cheap vodka.

I think the stigma of screw caps is slowly passing. Stelvin caps provide a more consistent protection for the contents that cork can't always offer.

60.5%??? That ain't booze, that's rocket fuel.

No it's Aberlour A'bunadh, cask strength.

SRS is quite right, even good quality wines come in screw tops, but not yet single malts it seems.

There ya go... "Aberlour A'bunadh". Apparently, after drinking the stuff and trying to decide on a name for it, they couldn't even spell it.

Ya, I do KNOW. It's a joke. Have a drop o tha pure and laugh about it, as I intended it.
