    Nice shelf there mate have a few of them myself

    As for tha macallan being worth the money I have a couple of bottles and no they are not you will find a great whiskey suited to your taste much cheaper.

    As an investment though they are quite good atm and seem to go up 50-80 a year on the bottles I have to keep.

    Lagavulin 16yo is my favourite.

    Nice selection!

    I'm at Lagavulin on Tuesday, and I've driven just shy of 500 miles today in my Elise so you've no excuse not to get up here in a Boxster ;-)

    Is there a Springbank 12 among that lot? What are your thoughts on the 10?

    Any Glengoyne?

    Question for the whisky lovers. I'm not a whisky drinker but been offered a couple of the 2019 sherry oak McAllen for slightly below retail. Worth taking as an investment for a few years or nothing special?

    Now the nights are chilling down and drawing in it's time to be visiting the cellar here at Caisteal magirus. Some are still here, some long gone, and some rum has entered the fray . . .

    How much?
    Friend bought 3 casks of Bruichladdich 15 years ago. He paid about £800 per cask.
    Will be a bit more today though.
    Great fun visiting it every year on the bikes...and he did ok out of the deal.
    Bear in mind you'll have to pay excise duty and bottling/labeling fees when the time comes. Furthermore, remember you can't actually sell it without a licence. If it's decent deal, you'll usually sell two-thirds of the cask contents back to the distillery to cover those costs...so end up with about a third? I visit Islay/Jura twice a year. Just returned, am sampling Jura 'The Road' at the mo...picked it up at Craighouse a few weeks back.
    I recon Kilchoman is the one to watch...it's grown from nothing (a farm) a few years back, to something quite special. One of the few distilleries to grow their own barley, process it through to the whisky AND bottle it, all on site. The majority of Islay bottling being done on the mainland. Their stuff is just properly coming on stream now. Will be huge in a few years time. Also registered an interest in buying an Ardnahoe whisky future should they come up. We'll see.

    Go for it.

    Away for a bite to eat and then away for a private whisky tasting.
    We have some french friends over and they love it, take it very seriously, taking notes etc on each one we try.

    Son was with wife in Costco today. Son says Ďthatís one of dadís favouritesí ..... not yet seen the receipt but she said £54 inc VAT. She got me two bottles. If the price is right that is a real bargain.

    Chadderton, Manchester. And she just showed me the receipt. £54 includes the VAT ! Tempted to go back for a couple more. Can be £90 elsewhere

    Total bargain...last time I was in Costco it was £80 (couple of months ago). Generally, they have Lagavulin 16 at a decent price...around £45.

    This is from the SMWS and is bloody awful.

    Do not bother. Iím having to blend it with other malts to attempt to make it palatable, but feel Iím just wasting other malts.

    At the other end of the spectrum...I just found Ben Bracken 8 year old single malt in Lidl for 9.99 euros, very, very easy/pleasant drinking speyside malt, not a world beater but at that price what can you expect/ you'd be mad not to try it, might be worth checking your local Lidl's.

    I find that with every speyside whisky I've ever tried. Can't get past that underlying vinegar note.
