Any new recommendations in the world of gin?

Tanqueray rangpur seems to have improved. Pint of please.

Malfy grapefruit is good too.

Tried the Busmills Distillery Reserve 12yo a couple of weeks back - in theory it's only available for purchase at the distillery itself. No idea how strict they are about that. But it's bloody lovely! :cheers:

Got some King Alfred Gin in the post today from Wessex Distillery.

Looking forward to trying it.

Wife got me a membership for the Craft Gin Club last Christmas. All the gins so far have been good.

Too much!
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

Good old Ulster Rugby encouraging responsible drinking by giving a discount if you buy 4 pints and an even bigger discount if you buy 6 :lol:

Any of you whisky drinkers help me with Laphroaig 10? SWMBO picked up a wee 5cl bottle, just for fun. Is it really supposed to smell a bit like wintergreen? Is it absolutely foul or are my taste buds simply not educated enough? I thought I understood whisky (and whiskey), but this one is beyond me.

Hi Solids

Laphroaig is a very required taste,distilled on Islay with a lot of the barley used grown locally on the island and dried using turf fires,hence it has a very strong "turf smokey salty" taste and aroma, in my opinion probably the most "peaty" of all Scotch whisky. For a good selection of all ages and makes of whisky at sensible prices For a decent aged bottle try Whisky Broker Ltd Creetown Scotland owned and run by a chap from Banbridge originally if you need any further details pm me.

Cheers >burp

Cheers Volvo. I'll give it a go and see what happens. Could be like the first taste of a blue cheese. Hateful but stuck with it and developed an understanding.
