Talking of whiskey can anyone who knows about such matters suggest a special bottle/brand in the c.200 sort of price bracket, FiL done a load of work on the house for us and want to get him something special as a thank you and he likes his scotch (don't think he will touch Irish!).

Do you have any idea what sort of thing he likes? Peaty? Sherry cask, that sort of thing?

Was just having a whisky so thought I'd bring it up, naturally I searched to see if we have done this before, as you can see we have.

Just wanted to give a shout out to Whits who actually contributed to this just over 10 years ago. x

Anyway, I love it.  I'm a scotch man, really love the peaty stuff, current favourite is Laphroaig Four Oak which, unfortunately, is usually only available in duty free unless you buy it online for 65 quid, which I can't justify.

Other favourites are Lagavulin 16 and Ardbeg 10.

Any other fans out there?  What are you drinking at the moment if so?

So that delicious bottle is now dry and as suggested I've tried the Aldi offering.  OK it's not sensational, I'm not expecting it to be but for less than 18 I really don't think you can go wrong.

I could get 3 bottles for the price of the Laphroaig I love so much and, of course, it isn't as good, but for three times the amount of whisky that is about 80% as good is just good economic sense.

it has a decent peaty nose and mouth with a kind of burned toffee that you often get. Certainly has that element of TCPness that you get with a more peaty whisky, which I like.  Compared to similarly priced whiskys this is it for me.

To be clear this is the green label Glen Marnoch Islay offering, I'm going to buy more.

I'll have to try that one. So far I've tried the Speyside and the Highland. They were nice, not the best single malts I've had, but for the price of a cheap blended I'm not complaining. The limited reserve for 2.50 more looks interesting too.

Cheers
