whiskey bottles

Recommended Posts

Bit random this but bought a bottle of whiskey at the weekend and the bottle its in is huge, really tall like a wine bottle so doesn't fit on the shelf it should.

 

Can I simply pour it into another empty whiskey bottle or would it loose some of its flavour?

 

Single malt cork stoppers any thoughts.

 

Cheers

Send it to me

 

I've got some shorter bottles it will fit in

They're the perfect height for most shelves, though for some reason they make whiskey taste like cold tea....

Ha ha it will be getting poured into me, only slowly. Could lie it down but won't look right

This is what happens when you buy Welsh whiskey, didn't even know they made whiskey in wales.

Penderyn, the wife has been getting me a bottle of single malt every now and then and I'm not going to discourage her, won't get it again its not as smooth as others I've had slightly funny after taste could be peat or Smokey.

 

Kept the other bottles because I like them and the whiskey, Dimple was really nice, the Aberlour was really good a 40th present.

 

The monkey shoulder was good, Wife got it on offer at Morrison's would get it again.

Gentlemen Whiskey is Irish or American....Scotch is Whisky....

I have not got any or even tried it....but I believe 'House of Commons' label is a Speyside Whisky?.......I may be wrong??

Frustratingly some Scottish producers occasionally adopt the 'e' as well, although i cannot think of an example right now.

 

The Canadians and Japanese also favour the spelling 'whisky'.

I'm sure your memory would be helped by a dram or two!

I only really enjoy sipping the Malts, used to win a lot of cheap ordinary stuff when clay shooting years ago and would give it away.

 

Last bottle I won was a Lagavulin and that was passed to a Mate in Somerset who enjoyed it more than I would have done.

 

Each to their own I guess, love good brandy and Armagnac though, now Port is another matter, I enjoy all sorts from the basic to the vintage years.

Penderyn Welsh Malt?......not to my taste, neat.....drinkable with water........just!

I'm no connoisseur but that stuff is horrid!

Tullamore Dew is my favourite by a long way, having tried many others.

I have no idea what it is about it either, but have seen the same as you where mild mannered folks get a bit 'handy'. I don't get angry or anything like that, just way too introspective and deep. If i'm in the right mood I can enjoy a few drams, but it's not a drink I would choose to have a couple of in a regular evening.

I absolutely go along with you about Port, I absolutely love the stuff although it turns my tongue purple.

Got a distillery a few miles from me. The bus to town routes by it sometimes.

Having done the tour as a car driver I'm tempted to try to time it by bus some day to be able to enjoy more of the free samples dished out at the end of the visit.

Never having been educated on the single malt distinction it was an eye opening tour & I've not looked at a blended whisky since.

 

If you ever get the chance to do such a tour, or join one of the single malt tasting days that some retailers organise, do so.

Monkey Shoulder is blended from 3 MALTs - (Glenfiddich, Balvennie, and Kininvie) - very nice whisky to be fair.
