Just so you know, whisky with just ice cubes, is called "On the Rocks." I.e Currently I am drinking the Corner Creek neat, if I were to add ice, it would then be Corner Creek on the rocks.

I look forward to seeing reviews of the Galileo. Many of the Ardbeggers I know are not happy about this release.

:shock: Eh? Are you serious? You purchased a zawa from TWE. How? Why? When?

I assume you expect it to be a good bottle. I got one too. Just because it was a Noh.

Bought it for the label and hope to hell it's a good one Pete. I saw it while sitting on the terrace of my hostel in Santiago and pressed the go button. I actually have a fair amount of confidence in these early to mid 80's sherry 'zawas.
Did I ever tell you about the dram of '76 'zawa I couldn't even finish? Bottles of this stuff sell for hundreds of pounds(usually never to be opened however). Actually the guy cracked a bottle of Hak 1989 Sherry while I was still sipp'n the 'zawa, so the 'zawa really didn't stand a chance 8)

I am not sure who is at fault here, my own lack of will, me knowing I would be chastized by Sean and Rich, or the fact that binnys had some interesting specials with my binnys card. I am going will all of the above, with possibly a little less on the first, as if I really lacked will, I would likely have walked out with at least 4 more bottles.
