Hi you two,
sorry I wasn't a member or user of this forum before February, otherwise we could have met up!

I live only 20 minutes from Munich and was also there during that weekend.

Maybe next year?

I could also have recommended, or shown you, a slightly lesser known bar tucked away in Schwabing which always has approaching 100 malts on offer by the shot.

BTW, what did you think of that new Cask Strength (100 proof) Longrow?
Personally I was not impressed.

Hi WhiskyHammer

I didn't try it. I tried a few Macalans, some Ben Nevis, most of the Irish, some Bowmores, and some different Cadenhead bottlings. It was an enjoyable event.

As usual, I was not impressed by the Macallans, but that''s just me.

I avoided the Macallans this year in favour of a few different drams.

As well as my already well-mentioned 1986 Dark Sherry Laddie which I thoroughly enjoyed, was a most welcome and very drinkable Caol Ila from Hart Brothers. I seem to recall this was a 9 year old.

I also saw that Ardbeg had a small sample of the 7 year old "Still Young" but never got round to trying it - unfortunately, as it was supposed to be very pleasant and totally different to the 6 year old "Very Young".

You had an oppertunity to try the Still Young and you passed it up? What sort of madness is this!

Looking forward to the still young, i've yet to try the VY but a bottle should be on its way to me shortly.

"Guilty M'Lud"

As penance I shall agree to buy a brace or two of bottles as soon as possible and post my personal live tasting on the WM Forum.
