    Old Pulteney is very good for what you pay. I mean compared to most whiskys in it's price range (I've tried Glenlivet, Glenmorangie, Balvenie, Aberlour, Dalwhinnie, Glenfiddich, Jura and a few more) it's superior for most part. Aberlour 10 YO is nice though, pretty sexy. But for around £25 you can't go wrong with Old Pulteney. I'm no expert, but I've tried about 10+ single malts in that price range and it's up there. Worth getting in as your "every day" whisky. Quarter cask... hmmm... might just as well have a sip of that right now. How is Lagavulin compared to Ardbeg and Laphroaig in general? I know they're the top 3 Islay brands, but I'd like to hear your personal opinion :)

    I've not tried Lagavulin but I was sold when it was described to me as smooth and smokey. I believe it will be smoother than laphroaig and a similar or more intense smoke than quarter cask. It's a 16 year.

    43% a little less than quarter cask. The flavour should be just as strong.

    I recommend it.

    Its really, really good and a bit of a secret bargain :p

    Its definitely a Whisky for experienced drinkers.

    Planning on something decent for this month although im enjoying JW Green Label (another bargain).

    Might have gotten my hands on some rather... extreme christmas beer.

    Hint: 19%. :D

    We'll see if the order goes through!

    Nah, this is the alcoholics thread that is hidden as a merry Christmas thread.

    Me? Hungover? Never! :D

    Ugh, you're probably right. My brother asked me what I wanted for Christmas, and my immediate reply was "some expensive-ass whisky", haha. But then, as long as it's all in a festive merry mode, 'tis all good, right? :p

    My mate came over with an early Christmas present. He told me to open it right away. What was it? Belgian Christmas ale. Haha! Already have one of these bottles stored up, but another one never hurts.
