Whiskies

Since contracting Diabeties, type two, I found that drinking beer sends my sugar levels high very quickly so I have decided to try dry drinks and I have developed a liking for single malt whiskies. In this web page I have tried to share my appreciation of the distillers art of whisky making


The type of terrain that the water used for whisky making percolates through has a great influence as to the taste of the whisky. it is usually accepted that there are six whisky regions and six classic single malts of Scotland.

Aberfeldy Highland 40% 12 £27 Scotland No Pic Link to Aber... H/page Single Malt No Pic
Description......The Aberfeldy Distillery has produced a fine Highland single malt Scotch Whisky since 1898. An elegant full bodied whisky, noted for its heather, honey softness, Aberfeldy malt has for years provided the signature notes of Dewars family of blended whiskies. This 12 year old one litre bottle has a full flavour, the perfume characteristics become more spicy, with a bitter hint of Seville oranges in a decidedly dry finish
Nose......Almost incense-like, heather honey with a fruity softness, notes of pineapple, toast and cereal

Amrut Higland like 46% No age £35 India No Pic Link to Amrut H/page Single Cask No Pic
Description......The blurb below mine is from the distributers Milroyds of Soho. This is a smooth pleasant whisky well worth a try. I get an initial taste of exotic flavours, with an excellent balance of sweet oaky pepper and a smoothness which only comes with age. It is full bodied and lingers for a while.<br /> Excellent.<br /> We are delighted to offer this splendid single cask single malt whisky from India's Amrut distillery. The whisky was matured for over three years in ex-Bourbon casks in Bangalore, Southern India. It was then shipped to Scotland and aged for a further year in an ex-grain cask. As with all Milroy's of Soho single cask bottlings, it is bottled without the addition of caramel colouring and is non-chill filtered. This is thrilling stuff for collectors and connoisseurs alike. Robustly rich and fruity, with a fascinating floral edge and a touch of marzipan, it lingers on the palate impressively. Limited relase of 210 bottles.
Nose......Hints of the exotic fruity spices, toffee, vanilla and sweet oak.

Nose......Soft, very aromatic with a hint of honey and lemon in the foreground.

Ardbeg Islay 46% 10 Yrs £30 Scotland No Pic Link to Ardbeg H/page Single Malt No Pic
