I loved it, just arrived today. It’s a good dram. Definitely taste the peat and the sweetness comes through. I did it with one ice ball.

How was the red spot? Just seen the price of it

I’ll pick up a bottle. It’s getting decent reviews.

Red spot is fantastic. Fruity with peppery notes. Goes down too easy. If you haven’t tried a Spot before, pick up the Green Spot, decent price for an Irish whiskey that good.

Any clues on the bottle or packaging as to who made it?

This is a weird but not unpleasant drink, tastes a bit like tequila.

I drank a lot of shochu in Japan, at the time it seemed to be to saké what cider is to beer.

I’d recommend trying junmai, it’s a great drink.

The colour of your fridge is great.

That 60's 70's hue of orange should make a comeback.

One of my absolute favourite pastimes is Buttchugging, or for newcomers, an alcohol enema. Many an expensive posh bottle has been wasted participating in this, but boy was it a good time.

Alcohol is absorbed through your anus which gets into your bloodstream and does exactly the same thing it would do if it entered through your mouth. If measured correctly, an alcohol enema will result in higher BAC than oral alcohol because it bypasses stomach enzymes that can buffer up to 30% of the alcohol you swallow.

Nothing tops this off, more than listening to the dulcet tones of Marti Pillow from Wet Wet Wet, singing Goodnight Girl
