Baxter Inn again

7.4.14

Met up with Luc after work for drinkies at the Baxter Inn.  We split four different whiskies so we could try some different kinds, although we mostly stuck with the Islays.

First up a Longrow Campbelltown limited edition ($19).  Only 9000 bottles made in small casks.  Very smooth.  Strong smell, but not peaty.  This was Luc's favourite of the night.

Then a Laphroaig Triple Wood ($13).  Not a strong smell to start with, although released more vapour after being warmed up a little.  This was nicely smokey, but a bit bitey.  Luc wasn't as much a fan of this one.

Askaig ($20?).  A bit smokier and smoother than the one above, I liked this one as well.

Baxter Inn

Bowmore ($17).  This one had some very interesting flavours.  Luc said honey and herbs and sweet - would go well with dessert or Christmas cake.  Kinda like burnt ginger snap.  I found it a little bitey and quite interesting.

We also shared a cheese and nibbles platter, which became my dinner.

Then I had their signature drink, which is half a shot of this drink, mixed with the juice of one apple.

Yum!

Look at the bottle of Monkey Shoulder!

I finished off with a Big Peat ($11), a blend
