I vote for a) fewer polls, period--I think they're boring--and b) more discussion. If you must have a poll, use it as a springboard for the exchange of ideas--don't just tell us that Laphladdich Octocask rules, but tell us why.
So I voted "Less Islay polls".
Islay polls trying to decide which of the three Kildalton distilleries or their specfic expressions are the best, are harmless enough. But it is just that we have done those so very many times - and yes I usually participate - but truth to be told: I like all three and I like most of their expressions. I think it is really unnecessary and perhaps even pointless to try to declare a winner - they are all very good malts.
But they does spark the occasional interesting discussion...
This is not a political statement. Just fairness for all.
...but my 20 month old daughter won't, and that concerns me.
But I respect Mr TH's reminder that this is not a forum for "political discussion"...even if it's a matter of survival.
But "zero tax on whisky", now THAT'S worthy of political discussion don't you think?!?
It would be nice to see more Marvin polls just to know he is OK.
As for global warming. Al Gore makes me laugh. Very good film and book on the seriousness of the problem. If only someone like him could rise to a position of power, let's say for the sake of argument Vice President of the United States. Then he could do something about it................
I would vote for a pill that protected the liver from the long term effects of alcohol if it were an option.

I vote for getting Craig's address so we can go over and help him reduce his excess of whisky.

PS: Craig, please feel free to illuminate us on your experiences there. I for one anticipate any crumbs that you are willing to share. It's diarized onto my calendar for 2008, hopefully I can get there this time.
