Needless to say, my fiance is terribly glad that I remain unable :mrgreen: I am rather lazy about shaving, I must confess, but it doesn't seem to aff...

That's what I use for Manhattans and Old-Fashioneds; I recommend it, at least for mixing. Can't comment for sipping, as I tend to stick to single-malt-scotch or the occasional brandy for that. I got my rye at Nick's Wine Merchants in Doncaster. From what I've read, there are probably better ryes in ...

Re: Macallan sells for $54,000

Seriously though, what's the oldest single Malt you've tasted? I paid a serious amount at a whisky bar for a dram of 1939 Macallan once, and I've found some whisky's almost as good, but this did go to show me that you can taste the difference in price in whisky's a lot easier than you can with wine...
