Look forward to meeting both of you again at future events.

Thanks, look forward to bumping into you!
I notice you are from Manchester too, where do you go for a whisky in Manchester. I have not found anywhere that great so far....
kyorke1 wrote:For a whisky I go to the Piccadilly Lounge or the British Protection. If you haven't been in either, the Piccadilly Lounge is stylish and quite expensive though but has some good whiskies. The British Protection is small and less attractive but has a larger range. That's it really I haven't found any other good bars.
What about buying bottles in Manchester? I live quite near the centre so I try all nearby, none of which are particularly good.
ClubSmed wrote:On the bottle front I have not found a one stop shop and as I too live almost in the City Centre I tend to shop in Selfridges, Harvey Nics, Oddbins and the shop that used to be an Oddbins on Deansgate that I cannot remember the name of.

...or Catford to be precise. Quite a sclepp to the Windsor Castle pub in Carshalton, but Derek came to a gig bless him, with his lovely wife Barbara, a cognac drinker who hates whisky ( especially that awful liquid germolene called Aaagh-dbeg)Yet she has a strange penchant for her hubbie's "christmas pudding-ey" Balblair!)
well, the landlord said it was the best gig I'd done there...so I hope you enjoyed it!
I'm very happy you came, and I enjoyed meeting you both.
