Well it's that time again.
Lose weight?
Stop smoking?
Spend less?
What will you do?

If memory serves me correctly JL weren't you guning for 1000 bottles at the mountain in 2010? Can I assume you made it?
Is there anything in particular you don't have that you'd like to pick up for 2011?

As i have been off dramming for a while, i intend not to rush into buying the usual fare (done plenty of that) but save up for a few quality bottles of what i really like, such as HP or Balblair.Fingers crossed it will not take too long. :)

Drink more whisky and keep on learning about my own tasting preferences.

Oh - and try to lose a bit of weight!

Try out more new single malts and especially Japanese single malts and try the occasional American Whisky/Bourbon ( I really want to try Elijah Craig ( 12 or 18 ) of which I had a nosing during a tasting :insane: )

I resolve to encourage Nick/C57 to open bottles. Not to the point of excess but merely to get him above 30. :P

Secondly, I resolve to encourage Sean/pkt to keep under 100 open bottles. :thumbsup:


Nick, every possiblity. Sean, no way :P

I ain't making any. There are plenty of ones I could make like gain weight, drink less/more, ETC, but why make promises you know you ain't gonna keep.

Sample more whiskys of course been sticking pretty much to Scottish in origin but might lash out on some Japanese malts .Any suggestions for a novice as to what to buy first up?
Lose some weight too but I say that every year and the metal fillings in my teeth are drawn to the fridge magnets and once you are there ....... :oops: :oops: :oops:
