Looks to me like Balvenie could be on to a winner here!

It looks to me as if he's holding a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask... :?

Cheers

Now, where did I put that bottle of Doublewood . . .

Hats off and glasses raised to Henry.

Interesting, when I saw this over on the BBC news site I immediately thought Balvenie, but now you mention it, I am tending more to Laphroaig.

But well done that man! 109 Years old and he still looks pretty good, probably as good as 30 years younger!

Mr Allingham said the whisky, along with "cigarettes and wild, wild women", was the secret of his long life.


"Cigareets and whisky and wild wild women, they'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane..." 'tis a song from the old days my friends. The old gaffer still has his wits and a sense of humour about him. Well done, I say! Peter

Looks like the 10yo expression. Could've gone the extra mile with a 40yo bottle IMO, as with any old war vet, put his life on the line at a young age. Deserves an older bottling, or at least a dozen of the 10yo bottles :lol:

He's been alive in three different centuries, but I'd be more impressed again if they weren't all in a row.

Fair play to the man. Hope he lives for many more years.
