I do enjoy a good left handed giant brew.

Yesterday I had a “dream room”

Found it in the cupboard, but I've read that worldwide, there are 9 different breweries that have tried their luck in getting a 'duff beer' out there without fox making a lawsuit.

Doesn't taste anything like guiness, tastes like a suped-up super dry, real nice:


I miss this though:

Can anyone recommend a good single malt whiskey that isn't one of the usual culprits? Looking for a Christmas gift for my Dad - he usually drinks Glenmorangie, Talisker etc…

If it's available from Waitrose that's even better.

They have the Laddie from Bruichladdich or if he likes peat the Port Charlotte is really nice, both delicious. Probs the Laddie would be the safe option if he likes a Talisker.

This should be nice too:

Do you happen to know if he prefers the sweeter taste of Glenmorangie over the smokier taste of Talisker?

I think Waitrose here has a different whisky selection to England so it's probably not worth me linking to specific ones, but if he prefers the former then look at Benromach, Aberlour, Balvenie, Dalwhinnie, Glenrothes, Glenfarclas….

If he prefers Talisker then you can't really go wrong with any of the Islay whiskies, Bunnahabhain (some of them are actually somewhere between Islay and Speyside in taste), Bruichladdich, Lagavulin, Caol Ila, or Jura outwith Islay.

The Whisky Exchange is more or less comparable in price to Waitrose and has a couple of shops in London if that's of any use.

Thanks Dee and Andy. I just got him a bottle of Talisker for his Birthday so I think I'll go with the Laddie as both of you have mentioned it and I know he hasn't tried that before.

Only asking about Waitrose as I'm a cheapskate and have a voucher to use. Laughing out loud

Just picked up another bottle of the Pikesville this morning from MoM Black Friday deal, if anyone looking for a sup price on this is a steal at the mo.

This guy rates almost all supermarket own brand wines and puts a book out every year.
Think the members area^ is supposed to be for book purchasers only..

Clunky as fuck but recommend using filter on the left to select your supermarket and 'book rating 9-10'.

Strong stout, mental flavour but couldn't hack more than half a pint.



Same as above. 9.4% ultra dark, chocolatey stout.

Both pretty good, but nursing drinks not lads lads lads material.
