Blimey that was quick, brilliant, thanks everyone. Am I allowed to have a bit of a snigger at Sleepyfergus commenting that it neednt 'cost the earth'? - peat based and all that. I suppose if I feel that i need to explain it then its not a good joke is it?
A really good peaty whisky comes from Islay, a good name to go for would be a Laphroaig or an Ardbeg. If you google them, (or Islay Whiskies) then you might find a special edition, or a limited bottling. Doesn't necessarily gave to cost the earth either.
I've volunteered to buy whisky for boss's xmas pressie, we know he likes 'peat based' whisky but having trawled a few whisky websites I cant find one that tells me whihc brands are peat based so can anyone help please? I know its meant to be a wine thread but I thought this might be the section to try initially!! We'll have about £30 to spend. Thanks in advance
