Lady Magnon thinks it's the start of a slippery slope; she fears I might become an old sop.
Last winter I consumed a bottle (over several months) of 15 year old Aberlour single malt, and I must say it was stunningly good. I'm not a drinker of spirits, but a wee dram of good quality whisky in front of the fire on a cold night is wonderful. I literally drink a thimble full, just for the flavour.
I've now bought a bottle of Singleton (nothing to do with Valerie) 12 year old single malt for this coming winter. I've not heard of Singleton, so my fingers are crossed. It looks impressive, so I hope I've made the right choice.
My late father enjoyed his whisky, but always drank 'blended'. If he was still alive I would buy him single malt; there is no comparison.
It will probably be broached just before Christmas, and with the amount I drink, it should last until April. I'm rather looking forward to it.
If anyone has tasted this 'Singleton', I'd be interested to hear your opinion.
