    Question to the board

    I’ve voted yes, but I freely admit to being a bit OCD.
  2. Isn’t that “one of a kind decanter” a Riedel?

    Whiskey decanters and decanting

    Whisky doesn’t age once it leaves the barrel. However it does evaporate pretty quickly if you don’t have a good seal. Something to bear in mind when buying decanters. Decanters are cool, and sometimes they can be much more aesthetically appealing than the original bottle. I have two whisky decanters at home, one Edinburgh Crystal, one Stuart Strathearn. Both have a decent seal, but nowhere near as good as the cork seal in the original bottle. They really only get used if I know I’m going to work through a bottle fairly quickly. So Christmas is peak-time for decanters in our house. Also, I work abroad a lot, so if I have a few weeks at home, I’ll stick a nice bottle of something in a decanter and work through it.
  6. The apple has fallen very far from the tree indeed.
  7. We don’t have it Scotland. It’s an Aussie brand, released by Carlton & United. Possibly an original blend, but most likely a re-brand of Ballentine’s or Famous Grouse, or something similar. Love the David Frost endorsement, btw!
  8. The old maxim “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” is beautifully illustrated by an old legend about Robert the Bruce, the famous Scottish King, who finally inspired and led the Scots in defeating the English at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. Dejected, defeated, on the run, and short on hope, the legend tells of him watching a spider, in the cave where he was hiding, repeatedly attempting and failing to start a web. The plucky spider never gives in, and eventually succeeds, inspiring Robert to carry on, and eventually win, the fight against the English. http://www.sath.org.uk/edscot/www.educationscotland.gov.uk/scotlandshistory/warsofindependence/bruceandspider/index.html “Freeeeeeeeeeduuuuuuummmmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!” is another useful quote, particularly as it was an Aussie who said it. 😂

  10. Lol. Duly amended.😂
  11. Another vote for the RG Perlas.
  12. The second one. Welcome to “Great” Britain. 🤦🏼‍♂️
  13. Don’t be greedy. Let some age. I just had a ten-year old JL2 recently that was simply breathtaking.
