I'm currently sipping a 3 year old single malt whisky.

Yes, 3. Not 30, this was distilled in 2007 and bottled last year, which makes me feel like a child molester.

And yet it's not bad at all. Damn, I think this may be the Lolita of Whiskies.

It's 46% strength, matured in Bourbon barrels, delightfully pale. Designed by a former distiller from Laphroiag, but not peaty.

Oh, and it's English, from Norfolk.

I'll be intrigued to see how they develop over the next few years - I trust they're keeping some of the casks to age a bit longer.

Isn't it interesting how much of a whisky's taste is from the barrel it's aged in?

Oh, and: Maker's Mark barrel #802830 will bear the name of Dave Oldbloke Budd.
