Finding the whisky that you want is not that easy. Some will tick a couple of your boxes and some will fail completely. I found a nice YouTube channel and this guy tried to replicate and expensive Ardbeg 25 year old by using Ardbeg 10 and another bottle of whisky.
This got me thinking. I love a good Single Malt with an extra hint of port or sherry. I decide to give it a try.
100 ml Arran Single Malt
100 ml Glenfarclas 2007
100 ml Dalvenie 12
50 ml Sherry
20 ml port
Wow. Right of the bat I loved this one. Remind me of the Dalmore Gran Reserve.
I will gradually add some other whisky over the next couple of months.
