Well congratulations Les. Today marks our anniversary. Unfortunately (or is that fortunately) she and the kids are leaving for a week today.
Congratulation Les and Ganga (for your separate anniversaries)
Last night I had Monkey Shoulder (Sample), it was not bad at all! Followed by Macallan 10yo Fine Oak
I finished the Laphroaig OMC 18yo 1987 on Saturday (finally). It was kind of a disapointing whisky.
Last night I had a Port Ellen 7th release. Even though my tasts buds had an off day it's still a very good whisky.
Second was a sample of a smoky Irish whiskey that will shortly be released - Connemara Sherry Finish from their new Small Batch Collection.
Both very good - read our full reviews on the Whisky For Everyone blog.

Any notes on this one?
I don't normally take notes. But I will send you a pm of tasting notes from memory. I have had this one on many occasions.
Forty Creek Barrel Select
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Highland Park 15yo single cask for GvM
Old Weller Antique 107
Both my dad and his SO liked Powers most, followed by the HP. Some months ago I had brought Laph 10, HP 12, and Macallan 12, which was their first time trying single malts and whisky neat or with just water (though they often drink blended scotch and soda). It's been fun introducing them to my interest, and they both said they enjoyed it.
It's amazing to me how much glasses matter though. We started with rather large brandy glasses, and the Forty Creek didn't smell or taste right at all. So we switched to small tumblers and while not ideal, everything worked from then on. In fact, the HP was the best it's tasted since I've opened the bottle. I re-tried the FC in the tumbler and it was just as I remembered, sumptuous rather than spirity as it was in the brandy glass.
With dinner, an Italian red table wine that was all cherries and plums, yet a thin body...didn't really work for me.
