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.

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.
