Auchentoshan Classic Whisky 70 cl
Auchentoshan Classic Whisky 70 cl
Price: 22.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Auchentoshan Classic (American Oak) Review!, 31 July 2014
Delicate and Light in nature, Auchentoshan Classic is a very pleasant and easy to drink whisky which has been solely matured in ex-bourbon casks. It has very recently (June 2014) been relabelled as "American Oak" as opposed to "Classic" , all you need to know is they are the same, just in case you see them both on a supermarket shelf!

This is a triple distilled Whisky (as opposed to most being distilled only twice) which naturally creates a more refined (smooth) experience both nosing and tasting. This is a whisky that won't intimidate you and doesn't burn at all. Bottled at 40% abv.. this is a 70cl bottle and comes in a presentation box.

My own Personal Tasting notes:

Nose (neat): immediate vanilla along with lemon zest, very faint floral notes

Palate (Neat): Very similar in the mouth to the nose, although the lemon zest is more noticeable

After adding a few drops of water and waiting 10 minutes:

Nose: The vanilla notes along with the slight alcoholic nip have receded, the lemon really comes through along with a grassy note

Palate: Bourbon vanilla and a pineapple note, almost has a Madeira wine taste. Floral really starting to stand out

Finish: Sweet with grassy notes with lingering pineapple

VERDICT: Remember that tasting notes are subjective to each person so you may detect different aromas and tastes. This whisky for the money is very good value and offers a pretty decent experience especially if you are looking for typical bourbon notes. If you're looking for heavy hitting flavours then may i suggest you either try the 12 year version or indeed the "three wood" as this one is simply too young to offer anything over complex.

Good quality, good value yet not too complex so very much ideal for beginners of something to enjoy after a meal. RECOMMENDED!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sandals for home and abroad!, 27 July 2014
In most shoes, size 9 fits me and the size 9 in these was spot on. These sandals really are comfy to wear and are well padded. Great for wearing by the pool or indeed going for a walk as the soles give good grip. I have no issues with them slipping off and for the money think they are well worth it. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Thriller!, 26 July 2014
I highly recommend this book. It's a fantastic read and is full of twists and turns and is edge of the seat stuff. You never want to put it down and you always want to reach the end of the chapter. If you are looking for a well written thriller then look no further. The kindle edition is exceptional value too!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eminem Show Album Review!, 24 July 2014
This review is from: The Eminem Show (Audio CD)
Eminem is a hugely controversial Artist and many people avoid playing his music for various reasons, it's certainly not something you play blazing away while in an open top car (unless you want everyone to curse you while in traffic).

However, in my humble opinion i find this album the best in terms of the variety and indeed the story it tells. Every song has good rhythm and the "Skits" make for an interesting addition. It's over 12 years old now but to this day i still rate this album as his best.

Great stuff and Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Proraso Sensitive Shaving Soap (White tub) Review!, 24 July 2014
If you're going to pick a Proraso Shaving soap then i highly recommend this one. Designed for sensitive skin it has a great smell and it very easy to lather. It's not a traditional soap nor is it a cream... this is somewhere in-between in consistency. The 150m tub should last months at the least if you intend to use it on a daily basis and i will say it's very moisturising and leaves my skin very soft.

They also do a green tub (eucalyptus and menthol) and a red tub (Sandalwood). I can equally recommend the green tub which has a very refreshing sent and reminds me of an old fashioned barber shop. I can't comment on the red tub as yet.

Verdict: Very pleasant to shave with and is easy to lather up, the subtle sent of this sensitive one will please most people. My one word of caution is the top simply pushes on so if you are travelling perhaps tape the lid on.

RECOMMENDED

5.0 out of 5 stars Old Pulteney 12 - A dram by the sea!, 24 July 2014
A delightful coastal malt which is well crafted and uses good quality casks for maturation (trust me you can tell). Very much a bourbon influenced whisky with vanilla and toffee and almost a fudge like note to be found on the nose. Pineapple is by far the biggest fruit note i could detect along with a lovely brown sugar note which comes through on the palate. With a little water i found a hint of lemon zest along with an almost salty tang starting to appear. Well balanced and never intimidating!

Verdict: Obviously everyones tasting notes can be different so keep that in mind but i FULLY RECOMMEND this single malt to you, it's a great experience and the price is pretty competitive too, if you've never tried it then this is one to add to the list. RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sets the mood and has a lovely scent!, 22 July 2014
We love this Massage oil. It's non sticky and is very easy to spread across skin and is absorbed into the skin within a few minutes. It has a very pleasing smell and certainly heightens the mood prior to sex. We take it in turns to massage each other and have to say it does add to the fun.

It's not cheap but would certainly recommend to those wanting to use such a product on special occasions. Thumbs Up

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Charging the PS4 controller while playing at the same time!, 20 July 2014
This is ideal so i can now play with my PS4 controller and charge it at the same time. The cable that the console comes with is pathetically short so this fitted the bill perfectly at 3m in length. The quality of the cable is pretty good and the connectors feel solid when they are plugged in. Would Definitely recommend if you want a longer cable!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vanish Gold is brilliant stuff!, 18 July 2014
This is fantastic stuff, you can either soak stained stuff in the sink for an hour, apply directly to a stained area or simply use some in the detergent draw of a washing machine. Either method works just as effectively as the other although if the stain is particularly bad then i usually apply some directly and wait for 5 minutes and then use some in the washing machine and give the stained clothes a good wash. It particularly does a great job with red wine stains but the key is not to wait too long!! So in other words make sure you wash the stained clothes the same day!

RECOMMENDED for shifting stubborn stains!

5.0 out of 5 stars TP-Link PA2030 Powerline Kit Review!, 18 July 2014
It seems Amazon has lumped all the reviews of the different variations of this product together, just so you know my review is based on the twin pack 200mbps adapters with 3 ports "TL-PA2030KIT".

If you want a wired internet connection to a PC, games console or another device but your Router is in a different room then "powerline adapters" are the way to go. They use the electrical wiring system in your house as data cables to send and receive data. The key thing to understand is that for them to work, they must all be on the same fuse box, what i mean by that is if one floor in your house works off a different fuse box than the other, then they won't be able to work across different floors. If your house has 1 Fuse box that covers the whole house then you won't have a problem!!

These by TP-Link are fantastic and are rated up to 200mbps (that's megabits not megabytes). For 99% of people that should be more than sufficient for most things including gaming (you can game off 75mbps quite easily although these will allow for a better bandwidth).

These units are quite small and compact and each features 3 ethernet ports so you can connect up to 3 devices at each end. I myself have my PC, PS4 and TV connected at the same time. You simply plug both adapters in and turn them on and if they don't auto pair then simply press the pair button on one and then go and press the same button on the other and they will sync together. Security wise once connected they are protected by a 128-bit AES Encryption.

There are three lights on the adapters, the top one identifies that the unit is getting power, the second is to show that it has connected to the other adapter and the bottom light shows data is being sent and received. Inside the box besides the two adapters you get 2x 2m ethernet cables, a instruction book and a CD for use with a PC if you are having difficulty in setting it up although i didn't need to use the disk and doubt you will either.

It is important to also note that the adapter i connected my three devices up to does get on the warm side after a few hours of use but it never gets hot, just ensure it's going in a well ventilated area. It's also worth noting that you can connect additional adapters up and have different rooms connected at the same time.

VERDICT: These powerline adapters create a stable wired connection using your existing electrical wiring, provided you don't live in an old house with "dodgy" wiring then you shouldn't have a problem. Range wise they work up to 300m so most houses should be covered. I'll simply finish by saying this, if at present you are using wireless and are sick of the constant drop outs and disconnects or if you are a gamer and sick of the "lag" that you can get due to your connection, try using these and you should find most of your connection problems will be resolved.
