I try to rotate them to make them all last as long as possible but my favourites at the moment are a Benromach 10 and an Aberlour 10. I really like smoky island whiskies but keep going back to the Speysides.

Couple of bottles from a rival dealer. This is one for any fans of sour fruit beers


And I’ve had one great bottle of this and two that haven’t been so good.. the pineapple in this really came out after decanting and a rest

Aberlour 12 on offer for £29 on Amazon atm - got a new bottle arriving tomorrow.

Deffo try the Seaweed - very good for price point and sips so well

I'm trying not to buy more at the moment. Bought a Tamnavulin the other week which is a bit too smooth for me but pleasant enough. The seaweed is intriguing, might give it a go.

Cava from Azimut in Penedes, classic Bianco from Le Coste and amazing 0mg sulfites pino Blanc from Weingut Brand.. two young brothers in Pfalz who can’t seem to do anything wrong. P Franco stock at least one of their wines (Wilder Satz)


But this new vintage Beaujolais from Sylvere Trichard is an absolute madness. No sulfites, much lighter than 2018 and tastes like cherry menthol. P Franco have had his nouveau in the past so they may have this too

Chichibu were around the retail £200 - £250, TWE released some stock of On The Way recently, the Milroys bottle just went for silly money at auction, starting to regret opening it.
