Sorry Richard, I was sure I read you said your wife came from over here, must have dreamt it, just put it down to age, along with
brown alcohol Embarassed

I'm not a Scotch drinker, even single malt's, getting back to wife's, my pals wife likes that dreadful smokey/peaty stuff & gave me a good measure to try, I tired to drink it but slipped it into her glass while they were out on the room, think she went to bed happy, if not it would have been acid indigestion. Very Happy

Guess you'll have to put me down as a philistine on Ice, Ice Cool

Talisker holds a special place in my palate ( my initial foray into the world of Scotch), but it is really a breed unto itself rather than an expression of a style.

Your mission Jim, should you choose to accept it, is to put the following "to the test".........

Cardhu
BenRaich
Tamdhu
Ardmore

Shoot for 12 years old all and compare side by side if possible
Yes, I'm working that palate out regularly. I have the "problem" of enjoying something and then being completely happy to just keep on enjoying it. For example, at our favorite Mexican restaurant I order the same thing every time we go. I'm sure there are many delicious things on their menu, but I look forward to going every time. And come away completely happy with my dining experience.

Similarly I have this "problem" with alcohol. It's only been recently that I've started trying more and more bourbons, whiskeys and scotches. I'll take your recommendations to heart (although I don't recongize all of those names -- so they might not have them in our stores here).

I had to do some work in Buffalo a long while ago and took a young engineer with me. On our first night we went to the hotel "club" bar, he was very pumped up and excited to be in the US for the first time. The barman asked what we would like, he said confidently "Bourbon".
Barman says "Straight or on the rocks?"
Less confidently "straight".
Drink turns up and he said to the barman "wheres the f...ing ice?"

I was in stitches.

Every great journey still begins with a single step.

Any moderately well-stocked retailer will carry at least one of them. It is just a small list representing most of what to expect from a Speysider.

If you enjoy researching via reading as well as tasting you should look into the writings of Jim Murray. He isn't hard to find online and an excellent source would be his "Complete Book of Whiskey". My copy is a 1998 edition and even though that is quite dated as whiskey is concerned it still is a suitable point of reference from which to begin your journey.

It was my Wife that came from England, not Richard's. Must be too much brown alcohol, Fish!

She's from Keighley, but moved around in England a bunch. She spent a lot of her life in King's Lynn, Norfolk.

As for me, born and raised in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, outside the city in the great rural Piketown. Cool

And it's threads like this that have me chompin' at the bit to get across the pond! How many distilleries can I realistically access in a 5 day period? I really don't have a good idea of what it's like with distances/driving over there...

.........Ahhh, Like ya too Ice Cool

No Ice Cool the miniatures came in a gift pack courtesy of a customer who enjoyed a motor club set tour of the main distillery's, I think the trip was spread over five days. I was just happy he didn't brake down the miniatures were a bonus Very Happy they've been in the cupboard for years mind, pity Scotch doesn't suit me pale

Now, that would suit you, Richard too, better stop buying Guitars & start saving your Penny's, that way when the next X350MA surface's, you'll either be too pist or too broke to be any serious competition drunken Very Happy

Scoundrel !! How dare you, sir! Preemptive moves like that are uncalled for! What's an x350ma??



I've a good friend over here who grew up in Arbroath (which is up along the Northwest coast abit) and he has told me in some of the more concentrated areas 6 to 8 a day is doable as distilleries go.

Are you remembering to practice, young man?? Laughing Rolling Eyes

I'm also curious what an x350ma is.

And I have been practicing, regularly! In fact, just today. We ARE talking about drinking, right?

I'd better recap here Richard. Ice knows what an X350MA is, one of his first posts was that he would like to find one.

My post was for Ice but as you had posted your note as I wrote mine I added ''would suit Richard too'' relating to the link, though grammatically it reads all wrong, or am I just digging a deeper hole for myself. :?:

I came across this pic while looking for something else on Google, not an Enfield Bullet but its a nice old photo. Didn't know Enfield had built a fully enclosed production bike, 1932 as well. I always though the 1955 Vincent Black Shadow & Prince were the first enclosed production bikes Surprised



Woman Seeks Directions
1932 UK, A woman perches on a Royal Enfield, "Cycar", motorcycle while she asks directions from a Royal Automobile Club rider. The "Cycar" is fully enclosed which prevents oil and grease from soiling its rider.

I guess it was posed for an add but interesting non the less Very Happy

Off topic, but we've slowly been watching the whole Fawlty Towers series. It makes me cring sometimes, it gets rolling along and becomes like a train wreck that you can't stop watching! Cleese has a unique talent for the awkward. Laughing
