ethanol has a lower boiling point than water I would expect the angel's share to be even larger in hot climates than in cold ones.

enjoyed it too much to save some to dilute. 8.5/10. Wikipedia tells me, with references, that unlike in Scotland, whiskies matured in Kentucky / Tennessee INCREASE in strength during maturation. Anybody understand and explain this? I would have expected the converse: given

George T. Stagg - Stagg Jr. Non age statement cask strength Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey at 64.9%. Very sweet, syrupy in fact, glutinous without any off-notes. I enjoyed it. Should probably have tried it diluted but the alcohol burn was not too much at full strength and I

I despair at National Express, But suspect the access and inclusion manager has a massive job on her hands, turning round a company culture and practice is a massive undertaking, Perhaps she may be of use yet. I blooming well hope so

Was actually last night, shortly before Mrs May had her phone call of Doom. Suspect she would have needed it more than me at that point. No mobile reception and very little internet where I am :-)

Auchentoshan 18yo 43%. I like Auchentoshan. It is interesting to compare this to the non-age-statement triple wood in the bar. Surprisingly floral on the nose; the underlying butterscotch is quite masked. Long dark fruits on the finish. Highly recommended 9/10 DO NOM

but then the classic Speyside buttery sweetness comes through. Very full mouth feel and long oily finish with lots of spice. I like this quite a lot. 9/10 DO NOM

I'd never heard of this distillery. Apparently that's because it is almost exclusively used in Diageo's blended whiskies, rarely put out as a single malt. Dailuaine 16yo Flora and Fauna single malt Scotch whisky at 43%. On initial nosing, was surprisingly earthy or even yeasty,

You probably already know my thoughts on the matter, but the answer is a resounding No, and I've told Parliament this on a number of occasions. I blogged on this:

12yo Caol Ila. Ash. Could have sworn that this was a young Ardbeg. Quite one dimensional! But I like it for that, and of course Caol Ila is nearly exclusively used in blends (in Johnnie Walker.) Definitely enjoyed. 8/10.

Always great when an organisation sends your password over plain text email. This brings into question their password storage system (I supplied the password on signing up, they didn't generate it) And other concerns.

Deanston 18yo at 46.3%. Very pleasant. Perhaps a little understated, or perhaps I'm overused to phenolic whiskies. Wouldn't kick this one out of bed.
