My votes are in, but there are lots of good choices this month as far as I'm concerned. When it comes to the date, Saturday's seem to work well. I'm flexible, whatever works for the group works for me.

I voted Springbank, Bowmore, Glenfarclas. No particular preference, I only have 1 bottle total between the 3. I really haven't tried alot from either, so all work for me.

Shame to waste a vote - please could you allocate Spirit of Islay's third vote to Scapa? I am only joking!

Springbank would be nice. Had only one bottle sofar, the regular 10 but I liked it very much.
A few bottles are waiting to be opened: vintage 2007 edition 1 and a 15 yo.

does matt send out samples anymore :wink:
(actually curious)


LSD, as far as I know, Matt is no longer involved with Whisky Mag as a moderator or admin. So unfortunately he's not sending out samples anymore.

Let's see what wins, then I'll check what I have available to distribute. :D

Vote cast for the final 3.

Bunny
Rosebank
Springbank

Not an expert on any of them so would relish the opportunity to sample them.
