    Best Malt / Distillery (tour)

    May one respectfully proffer...

    Caol Ila (cask strength) and Dalwhinnie respectively

    A gentle Highland Park to open the pallette, washed down by an obliging Oban before upping the ante with Bruichladdich, challenging that with a 16 yr Lagavulin and topping off with a 25 yr Talisker. Take a wild fling with some amazing Connemara before coming back down with a philosophical Jura whilst running great adventures of yore through the minds eye

    Sheer Poetry! Off out over Barden moor now and will be savouring thoughts every step of the way

    Personally I prefer a stiff one after a bite to eat &/or as a nightcap.

    Sounds like a wonderful ramble would never have thought of a little Jura to finish off. Might just tarry a whille at Bruichladdich.

    Have you not heard of the Barden Beast?

    Oi! Leave it out you! I'll have nowhere to run soon!

    As it was, when I got back to Barden tower I saw this dog-faced cow-looking winged beast jumping on me car So I decked the begger and told him to go practice his fiddle elsewhere.

    Mind, I had taken some of Wheeze's Talisker to give me courage (nice one Wheeze, tasted great on the top of Simon's Seat. Hope you enjoyed reciprocal Craggmore...!)

    As I type, finishing off the last dregs from a bottle of 15y.o Linkwood; not bad at all. Not sure what is next, so many malts to choose from and so many marvelous flavours - something for every occasion
