Yeah it was a long tasting, even longer for K-Mile as he was still around when I wound down. I did wander back as a guest after a hot bath, but by then was so sleepy I just took a gander and trundled off.
This was even better than the previous tasting, probably because more people are becoming aware of them. I'm looking forward to the November Glenlivet tasting that Matt is starting to set up. Two weeks to the blind tasting here at my place. 6 attendees, 7 fine and unusual single malts. It will be fun.
Good to hear you also get to do real 'live' tastings as well. Can imagine it's even better when being able to share thoughts face 2 face, instead of trying to focus on the screen...
I was trying to get some work done, so it wasn't whisky all the time for me. I am used to staying up late (still young and all, not getting intoxicated long enough...) and only had a few drams, way less than you all had. I only had T10, HP12 and Ardbeg TEN (two of both), and you were having more whiskies, in different kinds of glasses with and without chocolates, first trying them facing north, then facing south, and finally experimenting with the effects of gravity on you dram by hanging upside down
So that accounts for a much heavier evening than I had
