Adrian what a result. I'm just having a Glenlivet 18 and then going to bed. I've been working on rebuilding an old chesterfield for the last 4 days and the end is in sight at last. So it's nice to have a decent dram to savour. :thumbsup:

Ye had me worried there for a while but all grand now :thumbsup: ... however I do know that when I'm over tired whisk(e)y just does not taste right to me :(

Yes, normal business resumes Les :thumbsup: ..... Well I started with a RB 15 then the Karuizawa '71 ... I did chicken out on the Tomintoul 27yo and Yamakazi 18yo as I wanted to make sure I had a fresh palate. Then had a Bushmills 1608 400th, a Tesco 12yo Highland Malt (Which is not bad at all) washed down by a couple pints of water and a Labats Ice then again followed by 2 large Lap QC's and now a a'bunadh 19th batch..... :o

Will let you know how the head is in the morning


Jaysus Adrian - Is that what you call easing yourself back in? What do you usually drink on a Wednesday night??

Well I survived ..... but yes did go over the quote a bit ... especially after I said I was going to take it easy :oops: Luckily I have a marked glass and measured out my drink as god knows how much I would of drank then. In all fairness the 2cl of a'bunadh was a waste in the end as I was drinking whisky at that stage :?

18cl of whisk(e)y in total, 33cl of beer and 25cl of red wine with dinner. I think it was the 2 pints of water that saved me :o

However some eye opening results of that little binge .....I have followed the official UK alcohol unit calculator to a tee .....

And just to give you a prespective if I was drinking in an Irish pub this would equate to 7.5 drinks. 5 Whiskies 1 beer and 1.5 Wine

This amount actually totaled 14.07 Units :shock:


Can't say I'm perfect today a bit dopey but sure what's new :wink:

I'm one of the lucky ones that doesn't suffer woeful headaches too often however.

Roll on Friday I still have 1/3rd of my weekly quota left :lol:

I just heard on the radio that Michael Phelps eats 12,000 calories a day. So it's OK to ignore guidelines meant for the general population when you are, you know, a professional.

The thing is though, to keep in shape you have to do 50 lengths of the pool per day. :)

Does the effort in pouring and lifting to mouth not counter act the calories in a small measly dram?
