I was glad to finally meet you. I wish we there had been time to sit and have a dram or two. I hope you enjoyed the tasting. :D

Maybe, I'll bump into another Forumite or two in Edinburgh. I'm up two or three times a year to see my father-in-law, who stays in Chesser.



Yep it was really nice to meet up. It was early in the day so a coffee was good. Thanks for getting the bottles for me Tim and I'm sure we'll meet up again. :)

It was nice to finally meet you as well, next time we'll make time to have a dram or two. The tasting was great, loads of whisky!!! I'll post my sample list at some point early this week on the Event thread.

As far as the Red Sox....oh well...next year I guess. :cry: :x :cry:

I met Willie JJ at the Bow Bar a couple of weeks ago--delightful fellow. Met his charming wife briefly, also. A couple days before, I met Jan and his crew of traveling Danes, on their way back from Islay.

I won't list every forum member I've met here, because I'm sure I'd forget a couple. Suffice it to say that I've met some great folks through these forums, and I'm grateful to WM for giving me that opportunity. A number of those people have, for various reasons, felt it a good idea to belong to another forum as well, one run by fellow whisky enthusiasts, rather than commercial interests; so we are also members at PeatFreak. Perhaps some of you would find it useful, as well.

...and I've had the pleasure of chatting with Ganga on the 'phone last Wednesday. We were socialising on the SOI chatroom and decided to talk in real time.

Very nice to finally "meet you"

Had the great pleasure of meeting Les Taylor and Bamber at the WL London. It was just a shame we did not get to spend more time talking but the problem was we probably could of talked all day and end up missing the event. :roll:

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

Funnily enough I was going to ask you the same. 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.

I really like the Britons Protection but then I like old style pubs that serve decent pies. Although it does not seem to have anything out of the ordinary on the Whisky front, and most seems to be bourbon. I have not been to the Piccadilly Lounge, will have to check that one out.
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.

This is my usual round, although mine includes House of Frasier which is the worst to go in for prices. You sometimes get lucky, I got a Bushmills 16yo for £24 once. :mrgreen:
