Dramcember: A time to taste something new

I've been busy over the past couple of weeks on the DTWC group blog that I'm a member of. The Distant Thunder Whisky Club (DTWC) has an annual Dramcember challenge:

The rules are simple. Between the 9th of Dramcember until the 9th and Dramuary you are tasked to try at least 1 whisky you have never had before. This can be a single dram or a full bottle (it really does not matter). In doing so then post about it somewhere, anywhere, to let us all know how good or how bad it was.

We all get stuck in a slump and do not step to far off the beaten track which can make our pallets bit stagnant. If you have been wanting to try something new and need some inspiration well here it is.


I managed to sample four new whiskies during the month.

Bell's - the UKs favourite whisky:

A simple, easy drinking good value whisky.



A cheap dram: Tesco's special reserve:
 
Remarkably smooth for the money.


Aberlour 10yr old

A deceptively sophisticated whisky that tingles and teases.


Homemade Damson Whisky

The dessert wine of the whisky world.
