I like the sound of The Glenfiddich 21 Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish, and heard good things about Glenmorangie Signet.
Signet is class. Spicy and sweet, but nicely balanced.

I counted all of my open bottles yesterday, i have 64 bottles of whiskey that are open. I think my wife may have a point when she suggests that i may have enough.
Tell her you're just getting started <laugh>

That’s not a collection you’ve got there, it’s a bar <awe>

I have a bottle of the Glenfiddich 21, its great. Only down side for me is its 40 abv. I feel like they could have knocked it up to 45 or 50 to give it a bit more flavor. Otherwise, very good

Signet is delicious.

Another 8 bottles to the collection <gent>
Do share...

I’ve never used whisky hammer but submitted a valuation request for the bottle of 2016 William Larue Weller antique collection that I’ve been holding onto for a few years.

It's a good site imo... loads of stuff on there, ya do have to pay a membership fee which is like £3.50 and 10% commission on any bottle you buy tho.

My latest haul included:

-An old bottling of a Glenlivet 18
-Glenmorangie Signet
-Ardbeg Drum
-Tomintoul 21
-Glenfiddich 21 Gran Reserva Rum Cask Finish
-Glenmorangie A Midwinter's Night Dram
-Compass Box Delilah's
-An old bottling of VAT 69

4 to drink, 4 to keep

Just checked and a bottle sold for £1,075 at the last auction so I’ll see if I can list mine in time for the next one...I paid £125 so that’d be a nice tidy profit.

Nothing fancy but got a bottle of Western Gold Bourbon from LiDL for £16, not bad at all.

Wife disagrees strongly with that statement.

Have you had Ardbeg 5 wee beestie? It's actually pretty damn good!
Nah, not yet. I'm wanting some but it's sold out everyone I've looked online. Whisky Hammer have an auction next week so will see if I can pick up some from there, don't wanna pay over the odds too much for it though. Love Uigeadail tho, that stuff is the dogs bollocks!
It's not as good as Uig obviously, but it may be the best bang for buck you can get it scotch at the moment if you can get it at retail.

I don't think I've had 60 bottles of whisky in my life. I've currently got a small amount of Bulleit, some Laphroaig Quarter Cask and about 1/3 a bottle of Remy Martin 1738 - not whisky I know, but it's f***ing beautiful.
<scratch> after having a bad experience with cognac when i was a kid i've not touched it since but lately i've been looking to give it a go. I'll look into this <ok>
