Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This is for the whisky drinkers amongst us who like our malts. My favourites are the Islay malts, in particular: Port Ellen (1982:13yo), Ardbeg, Caol Ila

    Plus of the other whiskies: Glenturret, Clynelish, Rosewood, Old Pulteney & Scapa.

  7. The Glenlivet is fine if you like an earthy, peaty taste.
     
  8. Many years ago, I was told by a Sweaty Sock that
    "There is no such thing as a bad whisky " and I believe that to be so.It's just that some are better than others.
    That's a bit profound for this time of day aint it?
     
  9. Highland Park has a lovely smokey flavour, and I'm a Paddy as well :)
     
  10. Like a drop of Cardhu now again but pretty much any single malt is fine.
     
  11. I also like Bushmills - does that count?
     
  12. Yes. Bushmills 1609 is lovely stuff!
     
  13. I have to agree about the Islay malts although I only discovered them recently after reading Raw Spirit by Ian Banks (reccomended reading).

    I was in our local offy recently and they had a malt called Drumguish on sale for £9.99, well I couldn't resist at that price and it's not bad. It's on the young side but with nice grassy, peaty flavours. Apparently it normally sells for between £12 and £17.00 and if you see it, it is well worth getting in for when you don't want to share the really good stuff!
     
  14. A nice cup of Horlicks before bedtime !

    Mmmm Malty !!!
     
  15. I know it's not a malt but i like Jack Daniels with ice , Nectar of the gods :lol:
     
  16. Baileys and Cointreau mmmmmmm
     
  17. brimstone and treacle, its supposed to be about malt whisky
     
  18. Any malt but all time favourite Glenmorangie.
     
  19. That was the first one I ever tasted, from my Chief Observer in the ROC... lovely stuff. Before then I though whisky meant the blended stuff like Teachers which I hated!
