Started with a Straffe Hendrik '9' but that was a damn gassy beer so I switched to Uigeadail. Much much better.

Not in my usual drinking territory , "Darn Sarf" at a friends wedding in Hitchin , started off the night with an Old Speckled Hen (forgot how good that was if not a wee bit potent) , then tried the Singleton of Dufftown , not a bad dram though i wouldn't go a bottle....
Finished the night off with a Few Tali 10's .
I think i might be hitting the reserve flask of Renaissance sometime today though.....

After a 10 hour shift I had a Westmalle Trapist at 9.5 % vol while I was waiting for the rain to stop (I was with my bycicle). It was pouring down last night. I had to wait about 45 minutes so meanwhile I had an old jenever with coke. I finally managed to ride home and finished with a Lagavulin 16yo. The damn rain makes me thirsty.

Rochefort '10' at 11.3% vol (I really like trappist beers) followed by a Talisker 25yo edition 2007. Absolutely lovely stuff!

Like I mentioned in 'The Bar' I had beer last night. The last two bottles of Straffe Hendrik 9. My tummy still has not settled down. Maybe I poured too much of the sediment in my glass. I think I'll try some of my new Laphroaig or my Ardbeg Ducan Taylor tonight.

I am a few days late but, on Friday night I had Yamazaki 12yo for the first time. I thought it was very nice and very light. Perfect as a before dinner whisky tho. I rather enjoyed and the price was perfect.

Hot chocolate sounds nice to me, but not in the evening. I had BNJ at my friend's restaurant and a Lagavulin 16yo at home.

Another excellent Night at The Northern Counties Club with the SMWS Christmas List Tasting hosted by John Kirk , although technically only 3 were from the list....
A quick run through as full report will be posted on the SOI main site shortly.....
35.31 - excellent 19yo Glen Moray , lovely Spiciness to it (Bottle Purchased)
36.37 - Superb 14yo Benrinnes from the SMWSA , took a while to open up on the palate but once it did it was worth it (Bottle Purchased)
24.109 - A very good ( best one for a long while IMO) 24yo Macallan , might have considered a bottle but it was nearly the same cost as the two above.....
26.49 - A very disappointing 22yo Clynelish after the first 3 , had this one on an earlier tasting and rated it higher probably due to the other not so good malts that were on it .
3.150 - 18yo Bowmore , both myself and Mel (who loves the 12yo O.B.) thought this was awful , it was everything that turned me off Bowmore but quite a few people around us (and the tasting panel...) were raving about it......
Had a feeling beforehand that the 20yo Talisker and 24yo Longmorn on the list wouldn't be on the tasting !

Nice purchases! I had some more Whiskybase Laphroaig CS. No sweet sherry notes but I like that (it's a bourbon hogshead cask).

Caol Ila 12 yrs
Oban 14 yrs

I had almost forgot Caol Ila amongst all the other stuff I enjoy, so I bought a bottle of the 12 years old a few weeks ago, and now its back in my memory again. I enjoyed it and maybe I will go for the 18 years old the next time. The last time I tasted that one was 2003 when I brought a bottle home from a trip in Scotland.

Duvel at 8.5 % vol followed by an Oogie L6 and a Lagavulin 16yo. That Oogie tasted sweeter than usual (or was it my imagination?).
