This too, I suggest:
Don't open it
Take it back. Its past its sell by. Ask them to pay your bus fair as well.
Wouldn't it be a bit rude to say to friends, sorry, you'll have to take this back? And, can you pay my bus fare, please?
Apart from the fact that we shared a wee dram when it was given.
I'm thinking of you. It may give you a belly ache.
It's not your job to take it back. I bet they brought it at the reduced items section
Best not to let him even get a sniff of certain brands of Japanese whisky...
Mind you his pocket money probably wouldn't stretch that far for something that old
I hope so!
I was also given a bottle of 15 year old Bladnoch. I remarked, when I saw it, that it looked a bit special.
I was advised, it is!
I'm afraid I behaved badly and looked it up.
That is yet to come. I have had one wee dram so far, as a snifter, but I think I'm going to have to wait until it's time to share it with old friends.
Try drinking that without adding water...
What happened to Sammy - too much whisky?
P.S. Macallan is a favourite whisky of mine. Laphroiag has a very harsh taste; OK for a nip only. There's a great whisky shop in Bakewell where I've sampled some fine tasting rare old whiskies, but it's too expensive a hobby for me!
Bushmills whiskey, oldest distillery in the British Isles ,circa 1608.
I prefer a glass of "Tina Turner" (Black Bush whiskey) .
Any truth in the theory that good whiskey can only be produced in Scotland and Ireland because the water is soft due to flowing through peat bogs where as England is built on chalk which makes the water hard ,which is good for brewing ale but not good for distilling whisky.
Probably not, plenty of soft water peaty areas in England.
Why no English whiskey then?
Ireland and Scotland are not renowned for their Ales but England makes the best Ales, as water is the biggest ingredient in Whiskey and Ale it must contribute to the taste of the final product.
Don't really know, but most of the flavour of whiskey comes from the barrels its aged in, the raw whisk(e)y liquor doesn't taste of much at all.
There is - a whisky is made in the Lake District. Wales makes whisky also.
