Sitting here thinking about life in general and thought...a wee dram would go down well. My Mother in Law gave me a crock of Grant's scotch that was given to my Father in Law about 15 years ago when he retired (he was a non-drinker).

OK, my Mum is visiting from Sydney so I reckon it is time to uncork it and have a taste. Not sure how old it was when bottled, but I can tell you, it is most pleasant now...so much so I just might have to have a couple. Very Happy Very Happy Cheers Cheers

Cheers, Vince

FYI the empty decanters sell for $40 & up on Ebay - just about enough for another bottle of Scotch. Very Happy

I see they are from Glenfiddich and Balvenie, If it is the deluxe version of those it must be divine as either of the aforementioned are always welcome.

It is a blended whisky FN...but that just means it has the best of both worlds mate...although I must admit I am rather fond of a good single malt whisky.

Cheers, Vince

Yes mate...a couple of small ice cubes...but I did try it before polluting it. Very Happy Very Happy

Tullamore Dew is a nice drop, as is Jamesons.

Cheers, Vince

Vince I am appalled, ICE. Surprised

Well at least it was not single malt. Very Happy

Don't stress Lester old mate....NEVER, under any circumstances, regardless will I put ice in a fine single malt whisky...that would be sacrilege of the highest order.

More often than not I find that a blended whisky lends itself well to a couple of small pieces of ice.

Cheers, Vince

Not stressed about your icing a blended, just jealous that you got to drink it and not me, so I had to poke at ya a bit.

Once upon a time many years ago God smiled upon me and directed me to buy a very expensive bottle of single malt while I was in Northern Ireland. Took me many years to finish the bottle and on a good day I can still recall rich smoky flavor of peat and the hint of what I think was chocolate and tobacco.

Cheers

JW Blue....I know it is good mate...but I tell ya, it would wanna be to overshadow an OLD Glenfiddich.

I think the Johnnie Walker BLUE is still a blended whisky, but it is blended from extremely old whiskies. Never been luck enough to try it though...maybe one day.

Cheers, Vince
