Damn, did I miss that? I don't suppose there is any chance for a rerun? :roll:
What about vintages, say from 1980 until 1990 or something like that?

Now there's an idea. A cask vintage (1980 - 1989 or so like Sean proposed) from a specific region or type of whisky.

Oh no! Just like you it's all the same for me. I'll just have to do some more reading on this december tasting then. No worries.

That's just fine by me. :thumbsup:

So did we ever decide on a Topic for January? I think I might make it out to the store tomorrow for a bottle, and wondering if I should be pressured to lean towards a certain category.

Alright I was confused from:

Not sure if I can get anything 18 years old or older right now, but I could, and definitely are leaning towards trying to pick up something laden with Peat. So if it goes back to "keep the peat fire burning" I may be ready for that.

So perhaps I am missing something, but on what days are we doing the tasting? This weekend or next weekend?

Completely off topic here but just wanted to say the Victoria Whisky Festival last weekend, was another brilliant event! Lawrence and Ian (and others too numerous to mention) really outdid themselves this year. It was so well run, I actually witnessed Ian have a moment to sit! Congratulations Lawrence!!

Why not wait until the weekend after Valentine? I assume a lot of people will be ... uhmm ... very busy around that time of the year. :mrgreen:

Well, let's make it easy then. What about the last weekend of March? That would be 26 and 27th of March.
