    O/T A different type of Whisky

    Out shopping today, ironically attempting to find the new Gordons non - alcoholic Gin. I have it on good authority it tastes just like the real thing but no 'uplifting feeling' attached to it. Good if you like the taste but still want to take the car out in the future.

    Searched more than one store and finally ended up at Asda's of all places. No joy there either but, I found a new and different whisky. Looking at box, it was indeed a single malt. The price a very low £20. Now knowing the average 'decent' single malt should run at around £35 upwards in a supermarket, the price got the better of me.

    It showed £33 down to £20. Of course I thought there's a catch but low and behold the only catch was, and it astounded me, it was a Welsh whisky! Penderyn, a single malt of 41% volume. I thought for £20 there's no harm in trying it.

    I am somewhat pleasantly surprised of the taste. No cheap raspy taste left in the mouth like the blended rubbish that you see advertised on TV. No, this little number which holds a fresh and sweet taste with the smoky aromas associated with whisky. They say there's a slight bitterness to the end but so far I cannot detect that.

    For any whisky drinkers out there, and for a bargain of £20 I say you can't go wrong. If you buy it and it doesn't suit your taste, you can always keep it for a spare for when 'guests' call after the covid ban has been lifted

    Amazon is great for whiskey. Despite being Scottish born I prefer my whiskey with an e.

    Thereís some great Irish and American blends at food prices. Jamesonís, woodsman,monkey shoulder and bulleitt are all good buys.

    Some cracking tequila there as well.

    Funnily enough crash the only person 'taking the piss' is the one now buying it. His memory must be fading with age
