Won my fantasy football league and a £100 prize, will probably invest in a bottle or two of single malt and/or bourbon...any recommendations? I wouldn't usually spend more than £40 or so on a bottle, but as it's free money essentially I'm open to suggestions on more expensive ones. Single malt wise I prefer Speyside or Lowlands.

I've got a bottle of Laphroaig cask strength. I usually get reflux for a day after I have a glass....

Ooh, also Glenmorangie just released a 14 yo port cask finished Quinta Ruban instead of the usually 12yo. I personally love the 12 and imagine the 14 would be even better. Unfortunately it looks like it won't make it to TX for at least another half year.

I'd highly recommend any of these:

£35-£50
Glengoyne 10, 12,
Glenfarclas 10, 12, 105°
Aberfeldy 12
Cragganmore 12
Tamdhu 10
Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban


£50+
Glenmorangie Nectar D'or
Glenlivet 18
Aberfeldy 16
Glengoyne 18
Oban 14
Glendronach 18

Cheers, will do some research over the weekend. I've had the Glenlivet 18 before which was really decent. Glengoyne 18 is tempting.

Sadly not, it's £120+ so a little over budget. Have heard of it and sounds amazing tho!

Mates birthday so having a glass of Stagg Junior. Got it 4 years ago for my 30th, tend to save it for special occasions and got about 1/3 bottle left.

Tomorrow will be four months on the wagon. Surprised at how little i'm missing the booze to be honest (i.e. not at all).

Nice work. I do quite enjoy having a break now and again and usually give up for one month a year, never made more than that tho! I have dabbled with the idea of a dry year.
