  • Comment on Episode #251 from Stephen, N1SH
  • Thanks for the mention of the qso mapper project! It was quite by accident that I heard the mention on your podcast as I had just been surfing for a ham radio podcast to add to my routine. I happened across yours, and gave episode 251 a test-listen. I guess fate is telling me to subscribe. N1SH.

  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Glenmorangie 12 Quinta Ruban
  • Description
    • The darkest and most intense whisky in the extra-matured range, Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban has spent 10 years maturing in American white oak casks before being transferred into specially selected ruby port pipes from the Quintas or wine estates of Portugal. Extra maturation in these port pipes develops Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban into a voluptuous spirit with a complex balance of sweet and dry flavours and an intriguing contrast of smooth and crisp, cooling textures. Non chill-filtered for additional aroma and mouthfeel.
