Sounds interesting, OK99. And incidentally, welcome aboard. Your moniker reminds me of The Great One, although I can't figure out where the "Kiwi" bit fits in.

Thanks.

Oiler for the Edmonton Oilers NHL Team, Kiwi as I'm from New Zealand and 99 in honour of as you pointed out The Great One, Wayne Gretzky who wore 99 in his career with the Oilers, Kings, Blues & Rangers

Spot on! Sorry I haven't planned a night in Glasgow on my upcoming trip--I'd definitely stop in for a dram and a blether. Next year, maybe!

I tried this before. I woke up the next morning with a Glenfiddich 12 next to me in the bed. I could have sworn the night before it was a Black Bowmore.
