Single Malts

Recommended Posts

I used to enjoy a bottle of " Paddy " whiskey when back in the UK. One of the smoothest I've tasted. Much better then a Glen Morangie. Whenever I used to ask in the off license if they had any Paddy whiskey they nearly always offered me Bushmills ha ha ha :o

Loch Lomond is indeed a malt from Loch Lomond.

Its not a whisky to be taken dry.

Taken wet its OK.

Not long back the D/F shop had some Islay whiskies:-

Caol Islay and Lagavulin.

Both can be taken dry and are a rand dram

Don't ever share a single malt whiskey with a Thai.

A few years ago I brought in 2 litres of Glenfidich, gave one to my bro-in-law who had picked us up from Cmai Airport. Well mine was sipped, savoured and half drunk after 6 weeks, the other bottle GONE after 6 hours, mixed with liberal quantities of soda, and swilled down the gullets of several whiskey ignorant mates of the bro-in-law, tragic! If I'd just put Mekhong in the bottle they would never have known the difference.

They seem to consider that "100 Pipers" a quality drop for the more discerning drinker.

It's certainly a lot cheaper than Glenfiddich.

I doubt very much that "100 Pipers" has ever see the high road or the low road, let alone the lochs and the braes!

Au contraire...

100 Pipers Blended Scotch Whisky was first produced by Chivas Brothers and sold to Seagrams around 1949.

The name '100 Pipers' was taken from the '100 Pipers who proceeded Scotland's legendary hero, Bonnie Prince Charlie, into battle'.

100 Pipers is a blend of between 25 and 30 whiskies.

I think 100 Pipers is an OK Whisky. A year ago I bought 100 Pipers Blended Malt and that was a very good whisky for the price (at that time 480 baht for 70 cl). But I have not seen it the last couple of months.

Have you checked the 571 different Single Malt you can order in the link I posted earlier?

:D:o:D

Thanks for the correction & tip, I had a look at their web-site too, but still found it pretty rough.

I'm currently enjoying, one sip at a time, a Macallan 12-year malt. :o

Well, 100 Pipers is a blend, not a single malt, as mentioned above.

It's OK, but in that price category I much prefer Benmore.

Lots more flavour, IMHO.

Benmore is certainly a better drink.

100 Pipers do make a "single malt" but it's hardly likely to threaten the Talisker/Laphroaig market.
