Whisky - 28/11/20 03:07 PM

A few of you know that I dabble in whisky and have a couple of dozen casks.
A few years ago I did a small bottling with a pic from Red3s bonnet badge with rain on it.
I can’t get my image to save.
I am bottling a few casks in the coming months and thought I would see if anyone would like some.
All cask strength single cask, single malt.
Bunnahabhain or Tullibardine probably

It’s not homemade but from very famous distillery.

Thought 33 bottles might be good?

When I lived in Roanoke, my next-door neighbor/friend was the local ATF agent and his wife was the local federal prosecutor. I was in the technology business. Their dinnertime stories were far more interesting. Particularly after I built a house at SML in Franklin County, the Moonshine Capital of America. I have to admit, I received many gifts of home-produced libations over those years and some of it was outstanding.

Good news! Bottled today! Ten year old cask strength! 12 people on list and Calum wants 6 so 18, I might do more with our label. Not had bill yet for bottling, duty and VAT

Re: Whisky - 17/12/20 12:28 PM

In etymological terms, as whisky is just an English approximation for the Gaelic uisce beatha or in Scottish Gaelic uisge beatha, so effectively a phonetic interpretation, the difference is of no great importance.

For the record, I am a big fan of the electric soup from either side of the Irish Sea.

I guess it was a general Private Eye thing of that era. In Richard Ingrams and John Wells "Dear Bill" letters, they frequently have Denis Thatcher referring to the electric soup in his missives to his friend Bill (assumed by most to be Bill Deedes).

Re: Whisky - 27/12/20 04:54 PM

Back to subject. Bottling is complete. Limited run of 21 bottles. Tullibardine 10 single cask, single malt, cask strength! Not sure how I’m going to be able to distribute. Parcel force in a blow up bag I imagine. Only in UK. I have some other bottles for Red3 so guess he will be first. I can collect from bond about 5th January if labels done.
As an experiment I took an Ardmore 10 cask after I emptied it to local brewery and he made a great whisky beer from it. Just got in a few days ago, strong and tasty

Cask strength so might be a bit overpowering straight, I'd suggest adding water to taste.

Anyone who missed out can get Bunnahabhain Red wine charred firkin finish in a few months if they wish. Smoky and sweet .

Of course, he might have been wrong too as I don't think I've heard a definitive pronunciation since.

OK, so whats the correct phonetic pronunciation? That part of the world has some very difficult words to pronounce.

Re: Whisky - 18/01/21 01:47 PM

Hi Guys

In the Highlands we no longer drink the whisky, we keep it as an investment. I have 60 bottles locked away.

It pays better than the banks !

No worries if so but thought I’d check....
