My apologies for not responding sooner - this is an area of the forum that I visit less often, so I was not aware Matt had posted his generous comments in this thread.
Truth be told, I enjoy talking about whisky as much as I do drinking it, and I'm tremendously grateful to this forum for facilitating the exchange of ideas, suggestions, questions, polls, and all the wonderful things we discuss, argue, and carry on with.
Thanks to Matt for his great work in keeping the engine running, and of course to all other contributors for this global community of drinking friends.
Frodo - I echo Lawrence's thanks for your kind words. However, I note your extraordinary number of posts contributed in just two and a half months. If there's an acknowledgement for the first person to reach 1000 posts, I suspect Lawrence and I will be sending congratulations to you!
