For fathers day, I received a bottle of Edradour/Balechin blend which the Edradour distillety have just put on the market.
For those who aren't in the know, Edradour is a small distillery near Pitlochry (in Scotland need I add) They produce a range of unpeated whiskies under the distillery name but they also produce a range of peated whiskies under the name 'Balechin' (the name of another local small 'farm' distillery that closed in 1927). This new blend is the only time (so far) that you will see both names on one bottle. The result is a very nice, lightly peaty taste.I think it can only be bought at the distillery shop, it's not on general sale and doesn't even feature on the website. If you get a chance, it's well worth a try...

I remember stopping for fuel over the road from the Edradour distillery years ago. you could not smell petrol for the smell of whisky from over the road. We rode around 2 miles and then the bike started to loose power and just stopped. Pulled in to a layby and found the main Pos lead from the battery to the fuse had snapped on the crimp fitting. Crimped on a new one and 10 mins later back on the road.

The distillery over the road from the petrol station in Pitlochry isn't Edradour, it's the Blair Atholl distillery (home of Bells whisky for them as likes blended and Blair Atholl single malt for them as prefers the real thing :drunken: ).

Edradour is a tiny distillery in the hills behind the town. To my mind, it does the best whisky tours I've seen (and since it's a regular attraction for visitors, I've seen a few). The tour guides are very knowledgeable and passionate about the product. The Whisky ain't bad either :grin:... and , in addition to the regular lines, they have a whole raft of whiskies that simply aren't available anywhere else. Worth doing if you like a drop of Malt and are in the area...

I've had that Queen Margot years ago, nice drop of whisky. Also look for Monkey shoulder. It's a blend of 3 malts and very nice. Around £28 a bottle but well worth it.

Hmm, close but I prefer my G&T Aldi special having spent the day trying to shoe horn a Land Rover engine in.

Never heard of that one. When I was doing home brew my best one was Hambleton bard amber export ale. 2 1/2 pints and I couldn't get up the stairs to bed. #-o

I recommend it
