Another expert looking for winter warmth, JAMIE GOODE turns his attention to malt whisky. Hailing it as Scotland's greatest contribution to the world of drink, he gives a run-through of his five favourites. Heading the list is Sainsbury's Cognac-finish 15-year-old Speyside Single Malt (19.99), which has spent time in Cognac casks to give it a warm, nutty, oaky character and makes it sweet and rounded in the mouth. Number five on his list is Aberlour 10-year-old Highland Single Malt (22.99; Oddbins, Waitrose) - a superb whisky', smooth and rich with complex aromas of spice and vanilla and a fine balance.
