Good stuff Mark :thumbsup:

I'll take a guess (yes, already!) at the mystery dram #1 being the new Amrut Peated stuff :smoke:

Just a guess, was intrigued when I saw it on the RMW site earlier and I know that Mark likes to throw in the odd curve-ball like that - cunning little fox that he is!

I was looking forward to a blind tasting so thought I'd cheekily try and guess one early :P

Looking forward to it, I've refrained from the aqua vitae all week especially. :thumbsup:

Any other forum friends (or foes! :P ) joining us?

Okay, I'm a tad hangover today but it's all worth it :insane: :coffee:

Last nights tasting was (again) very good, first time I'd had a Macallan from a Bourbon cask, intriguing :thumbsup:

Star of the show for me tho was the Peated Amrut, wow! :shock: What a lovely complex dram, I was convinced I was on Islay. Would love to try this one with a ruby murray!

From memory the majority 1st choice was the Arran from a Fino Sherry cask, very fine indeed.

Lagavulin 25yo was a classic sherrried and peaty dream of a dram indeed, but at it's pricepoint I'll stick to the 16yo OB and their DE from PX.

Anyway, back to some more.... :coffee:
