Doesn't Spirit of Islay (Gordon) do a Wednesday thing on his site, I'm sure he and his guests are sipping and tasting? I haven't joined in yet, but have been planning too. Just I'm rarely off Wednesday nights.
your quite correct we do a small chat every wednesday night on my site . We do drink and chat about Drams during it but we also talk about other things .
We've had "Guests" on the chat and even had people from the trade dropping in from time to time , the wednesday chat is timed for people from Europe but we've had people from America coming in regular .
On a thursday night /friday morning (Depending on where your from !) the Plowed mob use the room for their thursday night chat .
Everyones welcome but you do need to register to get in as in the past i've found some unwelcomed dodgy logs so need to know who's using it .

Hmm... would it not be better to do it here in the forums? Chat are well and good - but time differences would make it hard for some members to participate. Much better IMHO to declare weekend X for Malt Y weekend and make a thread were members share notes on the expressions in their glasses and discussing the distillery and it's offerings.
I've done some "live tastings" while on the forum a few times and would enjoy getting together with a group of like minded individuals to do so. Mayhaps something could be set up under the auspices of the existing User groups in a side discussion area.
Matt, this would give a great reason for having such groups. Would it be possible? The members have been "vetted" so are trustworthy types I would assume.
I am definitely interested, however there's a 6 hour time diffence between myself and Europe . Badmonkey in Alberta is an hour later while poor Lawrence and Killerwhale out West are two hours beyond me.
