/ Attention: Malt whisky fans
He's great. The first time I saw some of those I thought it was a spoof.
Coming back to teh UK in October, will be working on my whisky palate there. (Whisky in Aus costs 3 or 4 x UK prices.)
ah i do love an obsessive....

A man who clearly appreciates the benefits of product testing :-)
I cracked open the bottle of Aberlour a Bunadh that I bought as a reward for moving house at the weekend. Very, very nice!
Aye, it's superb. :-)

He's not wrong! I added quite a bit of water to my first dram and it was still bursting with flavour. It's almost like a liquer.
I'm a big fan of his stuff. I especially like the way he's not at all a snob about brands and labels. Gives some very good pointers on supermarket own-label bottles that are worth trying (including Lidl's bourbon) and offer some good value for money.
He's also converted me to be an advocate regarding non-filtered, non-coloured, higher percentage bottlings (e.g. Ardbeg 10 yr).
His "3 bottles to start with" video is great, and I very much enjoy the occasional forays into other spirits categories (gin, rum, Irish)
Bookmarked! That is a lot of whisky reviews...
