Slainte Doug !


Sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.

I'm drinking a Highland Park 25 in more reflective mood now Spirit of Islay.

Sainsbury Islay 12. I'm sufficiently inebriated to take on the rather insipid Bladnoch 16 MMD Amarone Finish!

Weird indeed. As a huge CI fan, I was very disappointed with the DE. Thanks for the sample, allowing me to avoid buyer's remorse in that case. Glad you enjoy it, though.

A "Whisky Lounge" festival dram 2009 number 187/250, blended from various whiskies offered by contributors to the various festival events.

Very tangy and seems to punch well above the declared 46%

Bit naughty tonight - I'm on my third dram cos the wife has gone to bed early ;)

Kicked off with a Springbank 12, followed by an SMWS 3.158 (20 yr old Bowmore) and just finishing up with an SMWS 105.13 (26 yr old Tormore)

Fortunately tomorrow is a slow day at work - although I suspect I shall be slower!

Finishing a bottle of Bladnoch 16 1992 MMD Amarone. I slated it at first, but its kinda started growing on me, must be the air in the bottle!

Any idea the bottling code Maccy? I am drinking a LU28993 at the moment and it seems wonderfully "old fashioned" Then again I've had a few and may just be getting sentimental.
