First of all I would like to say hello too my fellow Scotch Drinkers, I like to think of Scotch as 'The Gentlemans Quaff" or ladies, Scotch is by no means a male only drink
I am just coming to the end of my most recent bottle, a 18yr Old Glenlivet, a Speyside Malt. I have found this Whisky to be a little bit of heaven on earth. It is a smooth, syrupy tipple with a lasting finish, a treat for the experienced scotch drinker as well as a good beginners drink, due to the smoothness.
Only last night I had a dram (or two) served in a Glencairn glass, which really does help the nose, and one cube of ice, I must have spent a good 5 minutes smelling the damn thing before my first sip. it really was the perfect way to relax after a hard stressfull day at work. Its the little things in life
Anyway as I said I am coming to the end of this bottle now and would like some recommendations on another smooth whisky, I like a distillery with a little romance I guess, it makes the dram that little bit more personel when you can find out the makers story.
I usually stay within the Speyside region but will welcome suggestions that take me out of my comfort zone.
Thank you and Slainte
