WINNING TIEBREAKERS

I prefer Isle of Skye because…
It's a taste of heaven that doesn't cost the earth
 
I want to sit on a fat-boy because…
It's America's finest, just like Jim Beam my bourbon - why settle on anything less
 
I think Baileys Irish Cream would make the ideal Christmas drink because…
One part whisky 'n' two parts Emerald Isle, add Baileys and pour out a smile
 
I think Bells 8 year old Scotch Whisky would make the ideal Christmas drink because…
Family invasions or cosy liaisons, Bells is best for all occasions
 
I would like to be photographed with a bottle of Black Label Scotch Whisky in/at/on…
Toasting Black Bottle has no peers, still the finest whisky after a hundred years
 
My ideal occasion for drinking Bushmills Malt Whisky would be...
Romantic evenings, blissfully Bushmilling, relishing the results of triple distilling
 
My ideal occasion for drinking Co-op Malt Whisky would be...
The Tattoo - it cannot be 'beat', for a smooth retreat
 
I prefer to buy my Glenmorangie at Victoria Wine because...
Glenmorangie - the malt to treasure! Victoria's staff make its purchase a pleasure
 
With Whyte & Mackay breaking the ice, each schooner led to paradise
I trip the light fantastic when I try the real Mackay
Those two lions in each measure brought loud roars of double pleasure
 
White Horse Scotch whisky and racing go together like...
Derby and June
Champion Chasers
A Classic Double
Spirit and Dash
 
I would most like to visit …….distilllery….
It's a taste of heaven that doesn't cost the Earth
When it comes to whiskey, reach for the Skye
Smoothly rounded, slightly dry, wife loves it, so do I
My husband would enjoy being in his spiritual home
I enjoy its smokey flavour which would 'still' remain
It is set like a jewel in the Highland heart
It is the home of Islay's gentle giant
I would like to observe the distillation of perfection
It is highly situated - the malt is highly appreciated
Between Earth and Skye there isn't a better dram
It would be the honeyed highlight of a highland holiday
No bridge is too far, for a tot of Talisker
