If I reply, does that mean I'm sad and lonely?

Specifically, I turn on the computer every morning hoping you have responded to my questions.

Ardbeg is very very nice, but I don't think it was as well regarded before it closed and then opened again. The whole industry is probably fueled by bull, but it works. Maybe when I open my 1977, I'll change my mind.

Oh, and A'bunadh is very good.

Hi there,

no, A'bunadh is not the best whisky ever. We do not know what more is to come. If you read the posts that do mention whisky you will find that we have a consensus that taste is individual and thatfor a matter of never ending discussion - or not to be discussed at all.
And Worm, welcome to the forum. Glad to have someone to sort things out. :wink:

Greetings

Personally I'd had my fill of A'bunadh after half a bottle. Started well, but ended up tasting like caramelised sherry concentrate coated in golden syrup - too sweet and too sherried for me. I did enjoy the first half of the bottle a lot though.

With regards your second question, well I have the entire Star Trek collection on video, write computer code for a living, tutor people in the Linux operating system and have an average knowledge on whisky.

I do however have a girlfriend, don't generally read porn, don't mix whisky with coke so I'm not sure.

However I would venture that you are a Troll and know a lot less about whisky than most of the posters here. Additionally your aggressive posting style is rooted a deep seated fear of rejection coupled with low self-esteem.

Welcome to the forum :)

I think you've proved you can write very well, Lawerence.

Worm was right about one thing, though. I don't have a girlfriend. I just don't seem to have the time for one, what with my job, golf, football, whisky, traveling... Oh, and my wife.

Well Aidan, if it's fashionable to be single, depressed and disillusioned then I'd say you fit the bill :D

Christian - these seem like symptoms of whisky drinking. My advise would be either to drink a lot more or a lot less of it :!: . Either should work.

Apart from the football I'm very much in the same situation - and I prefer to be a geek "with no life" instead of single, disillusioned and depressed!
Go Ardbeg!

Funny, I've known trolls to exist on most other internet forums, but on a scotch whisky forum?? That's pretty "out there," wouldn't you say?

What's a Troll? I mean the cyber variety as opposed to the kind that lives under a bridge.

After reading all the praise and esteem given to the Aberlour A'bundah, I've decided to go out today and buy myself a bottle.

You guys better be right about this... :D

Believe me, if you don't happen to like it, you will have no problem reassigning it!

Which batch # will you be getting?

(I realise you probably won't have a choice in this, it will be whatever your store has stocked on the shelves).

Maybe I can't let go of the past, but I simply can't forget Batch #6. This was such a sensational whisky, and so ridiculously cheap at the time of its release.

I saw Batch #14 in my local store the other day. The price is up to $90, which is about 2.14 on the JWB scale.

Cheers,

A cruel twist of fate as I entered my trusty liquor store this afternoon...

They were out of it! So instead, I picked up one of the only other bottles they had that I haven't yet tried (besides the ULTRA expensive whiskies). I got the Bowmore Mariner 15. I've already had several drinks from dinner tonight, and so I'll wait until tomorrow before trying this new scotch. I hope it's good!

Hey worm. I think you'll find most of the guys using the Whisky site drink more than they write. I know I do now. Just started drinking scotch in July this year and never knew how good it was till now. I work on machineguns everyday and used to only dream about shooting them till they turned red and quit. since finding scotch now I dream about going to Scotland and visiting the greatest places on earth and helping them drink the fruits of their labors. I happen to like A'bunadh very much. probably as much for it's higher alcohol content as flavor. so many years of gun oils and solvents my nasal passages are a lot less sensitive now than most of the good folks here. welcome aboard. much better to be a friend than a target.

Cheers
