Been meaning to start this one off for ages. One rule: Bourbon can fuck right off. Otherwise have at it...
why the rabid anti?
I am currently "enjoying (ir)responsibly":Very nice, not as smooth as the 18/25 but still worth the £25 in Asda.

Should investigate further I suppose, but there's so much to try from this side of the water...I see Oz and James are off to Islay next week, should be worth tuning in.
