...and that's as far as I get before I implode under the pressure of being offered too many choices
Actually TS i was struggling to get 11 , first off one of the ones i have a lot of bottles of was removed off the list due to it being closed ( Brora) .
I was trying to pick the ones i like a lot and have a few bottles of (first 4 in the list) , at the end i reluctantly put Bowmore on , i have a few bottles of Bowmore , but i have went off the distillery a lot since i first went over to Islay . It was my Favourite Islay at one time but something happened either to the Spirit or my taste buds around 1999/2000 .
I think after this years distilleries you will be struggling to get another 11 from the list that people will have or will be willing to splash out good money on IMO . By then it might be time to return to pastures old......
