Bain's Cape Mountain Whisky. Which is actually better than it sounds.
Haven't seen that in a while. Used to go cloudy in the bottle/glass if cold from what I remember. Nice.
Try some Campbeltown if you get the chance - peaty but not explosive like Islay can be. Their 10 y/o Springbank was very good as I recall. Not had the chance to try their peaty Longrow stuff but here's hoping for some day...
Can I get some recommendations from my American cousins? Not so long ago, discovered rye whiskey as opposed to typical 'bourbon' we tend to see in the U.K. Now, IMO, the pure rye stuff is orders of magnitude better than the often too sweet Jack Daniels type of stuff so I'm looking for some (not too expensive!) ryes to try out. All suggestions gratefully received...
After reading a couple of these threads lately, BC and Long Game, I need a drink!
For a starter kit, I prefer Aberlour
Ablerlour 10 is typically inexpensive and good.
I drank Abunad'h when my ex and I would drink together -- still didn't save the marriage.
Thank goodness in many ways.
Aberlour is my favorite scotch although I typically go for the 12. I've tried some of the smokier ones like Bowmore, and they just aren't for me.
Ahhhhhhhh, christmas cometh early.
