Tipples of the week

This week the Scribbler has mostly been enjoying:

Beer of the week: Doombar

Tasting note: Named after an infamous sandbank at the mouth of the Camel Estuary in north Cornwall- quickly acquiring a cult following. A balance of spicy resinous hop, sweet malty and delicate roasted notes. A nice balance and complex blend of succulent dried fruit, lightly roasted malty notes and a subtle yet assertive bitterness.

Chosen venue: The Paris Hotel, Coverack, Cornwall or The Coat & Badge, Putney

Scotch of the week: The Glenlivet 15 year old French oak reserve

Tasting note: Infinitely quaffable but pricey not my normal taste at all...less peaty or smoky more smooth and nutty- a grower

Chosen venue: The Admiral Coderington, Chelsea
