    When in London, I used to drink a lot of London Pride (and Extra Special Bitter - ESB - "brain damage" to the locals!). Landlord is my favourite Yorkshire beer, and there is one pub in Edinburgh that looks after it really well.

    Sorry, can't advise on the malt. I don't buy it any more and only drink it when I'm with Ally!!

    Chris and I tried this at a recent Cuddy Brae meet and we both thought it was lovely.

    This is a slighty peated Malt but great value for money, some supermarkets are selling it for around the 25.00 mark at the moment.

    Thanks Ally, that's two to add to my list. It might be down to what's available on the day in the store but armed with recommendations it should narrow down the choices.
    Regards,

    Nigel

    The Famous Grouse.
    I enjoy the single malts like 'old poulteney' & 'glenmorangie' more, as a drink. When paired with a stout tobacco however, I enjoy the grouse. By far.
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    Don't know about you Simon, but after a couple of drams of The Famous Grouse I become very mellow - the trivialities of life pass by unnoticed. Wonderful blend - arguably the best in the blended scotch genre.

    I think so. I used to like 'Teachers' but they've changed it. So I sticks to what I know, which isn't a lot but I knows what I likes.

    As a student, I used to work part-time in a bar. The old guys either asked for Grouse or J&B, mostly Grouse.

    The 15 is better than the 17 and cheaper as well also a higher abv, 46% compered to the 17 at 43%.

    Also ordered a bottle of this last night.

    That Strathmill looks VERY interesting, Ally. Good value for a cask strength (60% ABV), single bottling. It looks just right for an ex-bourbon cask malt - almost colourless. They burn off the whiskey from the cask, which has a caramelising effect - imparting a note of honeyed sweetness to the malt, as it ages.

    You'll probably need a smidgeon of clear water in that! LOL
