Speaking of Whisky, I just finished reading this, good to have a glass of the stuff in hand when reading about it!

Image

I'm a big fan of Banks' work and read a lot of his earlier contemporary fiction as well as his Iain M Banks culture series, so when I saw this I thought I'd give it a try. I've been to quite a few of the distilleries so it was nice to reminisce and as I was reading the book, I started putting together a list of ones I needed to try when the next bottle was due which was also quite cool. As a Scotsman it was also nice hearing some of the trivia from places I grew up near, and roads I remember tearing down, particularly the A82 that was really the gateway to anywhere out of Glasgow.

It's a bit of long yarn and he certainly tells you about a lot of different whisky, can't say I agree with all his findings but as he says, it's all down to personal taste, but if anyone wants it, PM me your address and I'll send on

I'll post it off, then stick it back up here and see if anyone else wants it... We all might end up a little more knowledgable about that lovely stuff we drink!

No worries Pete. Could take me a while though if I have a few drams while reading it. :lol:

Water brings out custard creams apparently! Supposed to taste very smooth but haven't tried it... I think we need some tasting notes pig!

Thought I would give this a go. Special bottling apparently. I'm always a little uneasy moving away from my beloved Ardbeg, but I am pleasantly surprised :thumbup:

Noted, Mate. Your wish is my command. In December, when I get there I will bring some of the Solist for a GTGImage

That's looks like it has a nice mellow finish, honey characteristics on the palate and a hint of heather on the nose Image I've become quite partial to the smooth peely walley whiskers these days for their simple drinkability!
