Never too late in life to discover new avenues of pleasure. For me, at age 61, the past month has been wonderful. The Christmas 2010 season really started me discovering the world of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies! Back a year later, and my favourite by miles is the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Is it possible that, after a year, this could be an even lovelier spirit than a year ago? Cheers, Carl

Bushmills 16 Year old 3 Wood - Warming up to this after a few sips
Well, having only yesterday reviewed the Black Bush - and given it 100% - and saying that I probably would not try another Bushmills because the Black Bush is so outstanding.... After work today, I found… read more
