My alcoholic weakness

December 26, 2008

When it comes to alcohol, I have a weakness. Single malt Scotch whisky.

I don’t drink to excess (well not often), but I do like a wee dram every now and then. It helps calm the nerves after a stressful day.

My favourite? Probably Laphropaig. It’s an single malt from Islay. And it has a very pronounced smokey, peaty nose. Just opening the bottle allows enough aroma to escape to relax the mind.

However, I also drink other malt whiskies. And I have a small collection of them. At the moment my drinks cabinet contains the following:

Laphroaig 15yo

Glenmorangie Burgundy wood finish

Glengoyne 10yo

Macallen 18yo


Glenfiddich Caoran Reserve 12yo

Glenfiddich Solera Reserve 15yo

Glenfiddich Toasted Oak Reserve 12yo

Glenfiddich 1991 Vintage Reserve

Highland Park 15yo

Aberlour 10yo

Bruichladdich 15yo

Isle of Jura 10yo

Cardhu 12yo

So if you ever want to by me a present or get in my good books – you know what to get me!
