English Whisky for an English Royal Wedding: April's order

By Miguel in Orders , St George , The Macallan

From The Whisky Exchange: A fine scotch single malt, an english whisky, several VSOP cognacs, a Polish vodka and a Caribbean rum. What else can I ask for?

I really wanted this want bad!, english whisky to conmemorate an english soon-to-be-king wedding, it is a premier! :).

Also I ordered a Macallan 21 Fine Oak, it is rather expensive but look what cool box and bottle. People says the whisky is up to the level.

My wardrobe of whisky

My wardrobe of whisky

This is where I store my drinks: whisky, cognac, rum and wine.

At first, I had all my collection stored there with the bottles standing horizontally, until I saw a bottle where the cork looked strange. So after checking in Internet I found that whisky has to be stored vertically. So I left there the bottles that has been opened and stored in another room the closed ones. Mainly I have there:

And about the wine, I have some great ones:

Spanish wines are really great and after having been drinking whisky and learning how to find the aromas and the flavour, I have learnt to appreciate even more the subtle aromas of wines. I do really enjoy Ribera del Duero wines but when you find a good Rioja there is nothing that can match it.
