    Anyone got any SWMS recommendations (my preference being peated and on the stronger end of the spectrum, i.e. ~60%+)?

    I'm only just starting to get a taste for whiskey and I know nothing about it. I'm off to Tiree on Sunday for a couple of nights and there is a small distillery there that I might try to visit. Does anyone have any idea if it's a decent tipple? Would be nice to have something to warm me up after surfing.

    From a brief scan it looks like they are not ready to release whisky yet (it must be at least three years old).
    They sell a Speyside in the meantime* and you could sample their "new make" spirit or gin.

    *Expensive for what it is imo:

    Thanks for that. Maybe I'll be able to pick up a bottle of something in Oban, on the way out.

    It's tricky to recommend SMWS stuff as it often sells out quickly so the ones I have can't now be bought, so I can't recommend one I've actually tried. Also none of the current Islay ones are over 60%, so if I did have to pick one myself at the moment I'd either go for:
    - 108.52 (Allt-a-Bhainne) Beef Stew Barbeque
    - 93.180 (Glen Scotia) Goatmeal

    Anyway I'm currently enjoying a dram of the 2012 Whisky Cellar House Malt - lovely.

    It was only a matter of time. What a cheap wreck of a turntable. Grave reservations about his cueing action. Maybe it's because the Hand Artist is left-handed. Surely a left-hander would approach the TT from the other side...unless they have Obama's style. And that would mess with the composition.

    * sorry.

    Worse still - it says "Oloroso sherry casks" and then "aged in first fill ex-bourbon." o_O The latter is correct as it's a new 11yo release and a diversion from Aberlours's usual style. Colour in the glass looks all wrong for bourbon.

    Ah sorry, missed that bit

    Just spoke to my brother @JTC and he's got this and highly recommended it:
