Hi Bruce,

Just wanted to thank you again for the great advice on the Glenrothes distillery on-site tasting (in the Inner Sanctum).

The company was superb - we had 2 Americans, 2 Swedes, 1 local, and 2 from the Netherlands. Ronnie Cox gave us an excellent prep on the distillery, its heritage, and we even had a visit in the still room.

Then on to the vertical tasting in the following order:

1. Select Reserve
2. 1991 Release
3. 1987 Release
4. 1985 Release
5. 25 y/o Duty Free (UK) special bottling
6. 1974 Release
7. 1972 Release
8. 1967 Release
9. 1966 Release

Hats off to Ronnie, Glenrothes and the event organizers. I really appreciate the way the distillery views enthusiasts. Will definitely plan for more SOS days next year.
