A suggestion for late September / October

Postby Deactivated Member » Tue Aug 12, 2008 8:25 am

Since I posted elsewhere about my new whisky 'Flights' (I hate that term, is it a modern-day equivalent to the 1980's booze cruises :lol: ) I have had a few members enquire about sending some of these out by post.

Of course, this is more than possible, but how about integrating this into a full online tatsing?

I could offer any of the flights, or even come up with a slightly different selection just for WM Fourum-ites.

I may even be able to offer a discount to reduce the price a little and my initial research has shown that postage may be very reasonable.

So, would anyone be interested in a co-ordinated online tasting with a selection from myself?

If we aim towards late September / October time, I may even have the webcam available which means there could also be a possibility of really doing this 'live' either from the pub or from my whisky den at home.

Your comments are most welcome,
MT

The reason I suggested that time was so that there would be sufficient time for any samples to get to far-away places.

I don't want to push it back too long, but I am open to suggestions for suitable dates.

Let me start the process again, how about a Saturday in mid-September?
Or when in October?

OK, so it looks like Sept. 27th is the date.

This will be a crazy day for me, but I guess by later that evening I'll be ready to sit, relax and enjoy a dram. If I can stay awake.

That is also the AFL Grand Final Day - in the middle of Wies'n (Octoberfest) and one travel company will be bussing a load of sport-hungry drinking Aussies to the pub.
The game starts at around 06:00, so I will be there preparing the 100 or so breakfasts at around 04:00, but unlike last year, I won't be staying until after midnight!

So, I'll start a poll to see what drams we should include.
