Can't remember having tried that one. But I agree with Mike.
'best' is subjective and can change over time.
If you are looking for something mellow you might go for a Speyside. If you want smokey you grab an Isley. All have their time and place.

And blends can be very nice, too. As can the American types.

Watered single malt. You'll be asking for a deep fried Mars bar next!

I was hoping to partake of a certain Lady's buns with my coffee, but her business looks to be under refurbishment.
Well, a little wait only increases the pleasure.

OMG did I just call her a Lady?!

In the loosest sense of course. Ahem.

Yes I know, sacrilege personified. But my palate won't take neat Scotch! I'm a beer man with an overtone of red wine, and an aftertaste of Port.

But I have a cheeky little bouquet :-)

Looks good, John. Would love to have a taste of that but I don't think they sell it over here. Never seen it before.

Why does that sound as if the UK wasn't a part of Europe?

Now now William my good man, do behave. You are exhibiting a propensity for getting into areas of contention, that might be more purposefully discussed in another forum.

Naughty naughty, tut tut :-)

Because the word "Europe" has a number of meanings.
A few of them are: the political union, a geographic descriptor, a greater geo-political descriptor, a descriptor for the western part of the Eurasian land mass, and a descriptor to distinguish between the land mass call Great Britain, and "that large lump over the sea to out east and south". And many more..................

That's conservatism for you - originally all traffic was on the left side - something to do with the sword hand usually being your right hand ;)

Up to the late 1700's, everybody travelled on the left side of the road because it's the sensible option for feudal, violent societies of mostly right-handed people. Jousting knights with their lances under their right arm naturally passed on each other's right, and if you passed a stranger on the road you walked on the left to ensure that your protective sword arm was between yourself and him.

A change was carried out all over continental Europe by Napoleon.The reason it changed under Napoleon was because he was left handed his armies had to march on the right so he could keep his sword arm between him and any opponent.From then on, any part of the world which was at some time part of the British Empire was thus left hand and any part colonised by the French was right hand.

The drive-on-the-right policy was adopted by the USA, which was anxious to cast off all remaining links with its British colonial past.
