Seeing as it was such big news at the week-end, I thought
we would have some enlightenment from you Whisky.

Honestly, mate, I don't get involved with that kind of nonsense.

If someone is rich enough to pay that kind of money for a whisky, good luck to them: their choice.

Will it better than a whisky which wins my World Whisky of the Year at a very tiny fraction of the cost? Extremely unlikely.

In recent years £30k whiskies have become almost two-a-penny. Rich business guy sees exorbitantly priced whisky in a bar/hotel - buys bottle for his friends and they polish it off that night. Because they can...

Does it interest me? Not even slightly....

I'm not a whisky drinker although some years ago I used to indulge, I won't bore you with my favourite tipple as was.

A young member of the family 23 yr is getting into drinking whisky, I was looking at these below. The price I've got is discounted because Ocado are desperate for me to place an order, is it value and a good starter pack? Or am I being conned by marketing?

Glenmorangie Malt Whisky Explorer Pack 3 x 35cl. After discount £35.00

The Original
Ten Years Old
The original expression of our elegant, yet complex single malt whisky, Glenmorangie Original is produced by maturing the delicate spirit that emerges from Scotland's tallest stills in first and second fill American white oak casks, resulting in a perfect balance between a smoother, purer spirit and a fuller, rounder depth. A complex single malt whisky with a soft, sweet, mellow finish.

The Lasanta
Sherry Cask Finish Aged 12 Years
Redolent with the "warmth and passion" of Jerez, Glenmorangie Lasanta is characterised by rich, spicy, nutty notes from the highest quality Spanish Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks selected for extra maturation. An elegant and full-bodied single malt whisky with a wonderfully long and smooth finish.

The Quinta Ruban
Port Cask Finish Aged 12 Years
Ruby red in colour, and inspired by our visits to the Quintas of the Iberian peninsula, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban owes its velvet rich smoothness and long finish to the highest quality Portuguese Port casks selected for extra maturation. A voluptuously smooth single malt whisky with a complex balance of sweet and dry flavours.

The Glenmorangie Pioneering Collection invites you to join us on a journey through our exquisite range of expressions, starting with Glenmorangie Original. Follow in the footsteps of our Whisky Creation Team, as they select the very best casks from around the world to bring you a range of taste experiences.
Perfected by the sixteen men of Tain

Whisky, once opened how long is whisky safe to drink?.I don't drink myself but in the past have bought spirits etc. to offer friends when visiting. I have a bottle of Johnnie Walker originally opened for our 25th wedding anniversary, now 20 years ago.It has been opened a couple of times since (the last time about 5 years ago) and the recipient quite enjoyed it and suffered no ill effects.still about quarter bottle left..should I bin it?

If by bin it you mean drink it, then bin it. Fast.

Once it gets past the half way mark oxidisation takes effect and the whisky starts to lose its personality and firmness on the palate.

The trick with keeping a spirit, whisky especially, is to keep it away from sunlight and heat. In those conditions, a partially opened bottle can last decades and still retain its character.

Your whisky will be safe to drink. But it might feel a little flat.

It's ok Whisky, whisky writer and rare whisky specialist,Jonny McCormick
has filled me in on the release of cask121.
Apparently it's the last of the 1943 vintage Glenlivet, hence it's price.
Some interesting reading on the Gordon & Macphail distillery though.

Rare whisky specialist....? For fuck's sake...what does that mean?

Can this bloke tell me what samples from the last two casks from Buffalo Trace's 1996 production tastes like...? The only whisky matured in a madeira cask from a particular Tasmanian distillery?

I have been to a distillery which so far has produced only three barrels, and tasted samples from all of them. Do I go around calling myself a rare whisky specialist? No I bloody don't. Of course there are extra special rare whiskies collectors are after from dead distilleries. The 1943 is rare because wartime production was cut and most that was made ended up in the US. But taking things down to an atomic level, every single cask is, in its own way, a rare whisky as they all taste differently from the other. The fucking bullshit spouted in this industry knows no bounds...

My point is, I remember 15 years or so ago Gordon and MacPhail (the name of an independent bottler, not a distillery - I wrote their official centenary booklet) bottled a 1937 whisky. It didn't cost £30,000, or the year 2000 or whatever's equivalent. Or anything like.

The Chinese have come into the market place and they and the super rich are paying silly money for a whisky which years ago would have been marketed at a fraction of that price. It doesn't make the whisky any better.

Just more expensive.

Blimey Whisky, I thought you was going to tell me that you and Jonny
were great pals. Sorry, didn't mean to upset you.
Rare whisky specialist is what he names him-self in the article.

Never heard of him.

You haven't upset me in the slightest, Midway. You never do.

But this year marks 25 years since I made the leap into the unknown to become the world's first full time whisky writer. And maybe it is the Millwall in me. But just not a great fan of some of the silly pretentiousness that I have unwittingly spawned...
