The List (June 2007)
"Dave Hinz" skrev i melding news: So old Doc is back! Been posting regularly every month for years, but has been away for a while now. Maybe he's been ill from all the artificial colouring?
Never mind. You could say he is sort of a troll, but a harmless one. He sticks to post only this monthly list and don't usually even reply when adressed.
Suggest you list the non-colored malts. The list should be shorter, although getting longer as time passes. Also, the list needs an age. There are several Aberlours at 43% for example.
And because you choose to quote this regularly spammed drivel, you now make many of our killfiles.

Any particular reason why you had to include the entire garbage list before your two brief paragraphs of observations, you moron? (plonk}
If you didn't know already, other posters have told you by now that quoting a very long post in its entirety just to add a brief comment at the bottom is considered bad form. We might be interested in an intelligent discussion on colouring. But those of us who have been here a while are not interested in seeing the same list published for about the 43d time, to no purpose.
Relevant to what? We have seen it many, many times and colouring does not affect taste. Chill-filtering, which does affect taste, doesn't seem to interest the doctor.
We already know what's in his list and it's not useful information. Years ago when he was first posting it, a few people did the research and found that some of the malts he lists are not coloured, and some malts that are coloured are not on his list.
So, what are you drinking at the moment?
We're sipping a 30-yr. Glen Grant (OB, 40%abv) right now in celebration of the 4th. Bought about ten years ago. It's fantastic -- smooth and complex, not tired at all.
It's early yet here on the Wet Coast but it may be time for another dram of the Ardbeg Uigeadail. I've been nursing this bottle for well over six months. Hard to spell and easy to drink.
thicker, spicier than the usual HP, with a little honey coming through. I opened it for my daughter's 21st a few weeks ago. Too bad she hasn't developed the taste for it yet...kinda sorta...don't have to share..lol.
Enjoy Bill P
Um...a Guinness Draught in the can here. But Balvenie 10 is the newest malt in the cabinet, and didn't dissapoint despite the young-ish age.
