Something I just thought of; a couple of years ago I went through a bottle of Bowmore Surf. This 17 is very different. I can't think of one thing that reminds me of it - although I liked the Surf too. If I enjoyed whisky on a daily basis I wouldn't mind drinking the Surf.


Hi Ganga - you really ought to come on board :)

Thanks for the notice. I am still at work for another 45 minutes but I thought I would check in to see how the tasting event worked out. Seems to work quite well. :smoke:

I need to pick up the kids Friday but will be at the computer by 3:00 PM Pacific.

...a Blenders art that involved 17 years. An interesting way of looking at SM, Mr. Fjeld, a well balanced Single Malt could very really be referred to as the culmination of the blenders art, considering the blending is done with the same ingredients and techniques of other distilleries. Yet, when the time comes to choose the casks for final aging and melding together for final bottling it truly does appear the work of a highly trained alchemist.

Ganga: If you've got something to dram with, please pour a glass and join in we'd delight in hearing your comments. Maybe later tonight as you're at work. If not we'll see you at 1500 Pacific, 1700 Central and 2300 GMT

Christian,
I couldn't thank you enough for jumping and getting this serendipitous tasting up and running. Thank you to everyone else who was already here ahead of me and who joined in later to watch and comment. It was like being at the same party, jumping from PM to Forum thread and back without the actual physical contact.
Thanks again everyone it was a blast!

Sorry guys I was one who also went to bed. It had been a busy day including a 4 hour flight. But yes I did get a hint of coffee in the background as well. I'm looking forward to the next time.

What will be the bottle of choice?

Les, here's an anotated version of an earlier post on the thread, setting out the timing and drams, generally Islands SM this time around. I'll line up my bottles tonight before bedtime so I can kick in as soon as I get home at noon (yes, that's 1800 hrs GMT) I may need a nap after the first round!
Please note that Matt has set up a special thread for us to go to Friday which is locked until the proposed start.
Muskrat Portage wrote: ... I'm proposing to set up a Live Tasting on Friday Oct 12, at 6pm (1800 hrs GMT) ...

At 1800 GMT, I propose a welcoming dram - the Balvenie 12 Doublewood
... (at 1815 GMT) the tasting would "officially" start.

HP 12 then follow up with
Bowmore (Dusk/ Dawn/ Darkest) (one or all whichever you have)
Bowmore 12 and 17 yo
Ardbeg 10;
Laphroiag QC
Laggie 16 yo.
If someone has a different bottle from the same distillery, they could post their comments on it and we vicariously make note of the similarities and differences. After that, it would be open to whatever anyone else wanted to sample.

...A second tasting start at 2400 hrs GMT, being 1800 in Wooden Lake, and 1600 in California.
Again the same format a welcoming dram until several people are online, starting tasting at 0015hrs GMT

See you there! I'm off to work!

I came home yesterday to find my home computer not running. :cry: I'll see if I can get it fixed before tomorrow after noon. :headbang: I may need a bigger hammer. :wink:

Later...

Argh! I won't have the 'puter back before tomorrow's tasting. :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

Ganga:
There are actually two times tomorrow so if you can't make the first, maybe you'll make the second? In the alternative, once your home 'puter is working we can set up a "serendipitous" tasting if you want on Saturday.

Okay, my notes for tomorrow are printed off, my whisky is sitting by the computer and I'm off to Karate. See you all tomorrow at 1800 hrs GMT (6 pm in Greenwich)... or 2400 GMT

The first Live tasting went off wonderfully, at least I think so, with plenty of input from forummers in most of the Western hemisphere. I personally picked up some new nuances in regular standby whiskies that I'd owned for years. I also "met" some new people who are going to be a strong asset to the online whisky community.(MrIntrepid and GregB) Welcome aboard!
All in all an excellent time... too bad I finally had to sleep!

It was great to follow your last tasting session. The format where you could open a link which covered the whole window instead of the standard "thread" was a very good invention. It worked fine for a while but as soon as the tasting evolved into 2 and 3 pages it wasn't possible anymore? Matt, would it be possible to fix it so we could have an "infinite page" or something?

Cheers!

That's true! Once you moved to another page, the new format was gone. A solution to this, for future tastings (if Matt doesn't have any more great surprises for us before that ;)) is to look in the address bar of the page. There is a bit like 'viewtopic.php' that should be changed into 'viewtopic2.php'. The rest is to remain intact. This will bring up the alternate layout for the current page, so even if you are at page 2 or 3 you still get the new layout. When you move from or back to the page, just add the '2' again and you're good to go.

As far as I know this was a temporary page, so I am sure it will get better as we get more of these live tastings (and we should).

Thanks for bringing this up. This way, Matt can try and figure it out and we all benefit!

Yes, Mr Fjeld and I are working on a second one this Friday, after which I'd be interested on some input on when tasting should be scheduled. I'm thinking a 3 week schedule alternating between Fridays and Saturdays might work. That would allow for 17 tastings a year and showcase a nice variety of distilleries.

I'd also like to see other forummers "host" the Live tasting to spread the weight around and to ensure the continuity of the tasting as a feature of the WM forums.
In this manner someone like Admiral could host from Australia, K-Mile in Amsterdam, as well as forummers in India, South America, the USA... you get the idea. If they started the tasting at 1600-1700 their time, the rest of us would be able to choose whether to attend or not.

Waking up at 4 am to drink doesn't sound so bad now does it? A possible consideration is to divide the globe into 3 regions of 8 hours each segment, at some point everyone would be able to have a tasting at close to reasonable dramming hours.
1) GMT + 1 hr (Amsterdam) would cover the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, EU, some of Russia, Africa and the Balkans;
2) GMT + 9 hours (Western Australia) would cover India, China, Malasia, ANZAC, Japan and more of central Siberian area;
3) GMT- 7 hours (Calgary/Edmonton)would cover North America, South America, Greenland and St Pierre et Miquelon.
Looking forward to hearing comments from everyone.

MP that sounds like a great idea. I would be more than happy to share the load to pull these off. I could try and arrange the 'Amsterdam' sessions whenever possible. Maybe Christian and I could help each other out, since we're in the same time zone.

Maybe 'assigning' sessions to users gives a sense of responsibility, and prevents the tastings from disappearing because nobody stepped up to make them happen.

If one or two users take the arrangements (Matt could help out here by opening/locking topics, and setting up other forum stuff) for each session we can count on some smooth going tastings.

Great idea :thumbsup: K-Mile and I will be there at .......what time? .....and make sure the tasting proceeds as planned. I know Peter have received a suggestion or two about what to taste but it would be great if the suggestions poured in into his inbox or maybe even here?

Also a good idea. I was also wondering about the possibility of making a separate section for tasting threads? That way each online tasting could be assigned its own thread with date etc.and Matt could lock the thread when it was over. Would be handy for later amusement when going through all the madness :lol:

Mr Fjeld, my esteemed colleague:
That would be great, if Matt had the time to set up a new thread all the time. He may not always be able to, so would it be better to set up a Topic for say a year instead? That would allow us 12 to 17 tastings per year in each Topic. On an average of 2.5 pages per tasting, we'd have 30 to 43 pages in the topic after a year...ouch!

It's basically up to Matt, as personally I agree Christian, I'd love to have a Topic for every tasting to go back through. I just don't want to burden Matt with more responsibilties that he already has.

Matt? Are you out there? Whaddaya think?

I already PM'd Matt about this yesterday, with some ideas on this subject. Haven't got an answer though...

Matt, you still there? Check your inbox for a couple of PM's from me :angel:

I think we could create a topic for suggestions for a session and the session itself. No other topics allowed in the forum?

Just joking :mrgreen:

Let me know what and when and I will setup a new topic and do another banner ad for it, maybe even send some spam out about it. I will try and do a bit of work on the topic viewer / live tasting viewer / tasting bbcode this week.

I think as this progresses you will be able to organise them but for now I will act as the live tasting organiser, and of course join in when ever I can.

So whats the plan for the next? Date / time / whiskies?

Great Matt! Never meant to pressure you. If you can continue to help us out getting the topics up and running, great, but please also join in for a dram or two, I mean, three, or four, or well, you get the point ;)

I am sure we'll get a schedule out soon.

Talisker Distillery Live Tasting.
The details for this tasting of offerings from Skye:
Date: Friday October 19, 2007
Time: 1200 hrs Pacific GMT+8
1400 hrs Winnipeg GMT+5(+DST =6)
2000 hrs GMT
2100 hrs Norway/Nederlands/Germany GMT-1
0100 hrs Saturday India GMT- 5
0400- 0600 Saturday Australia GMT-8,-9,-10
0500 hrs Saturday Japan GMT-9
0800 hrs Saturday NZ GMT-12
Duration: 3 hours (estimated)
Whiskies: Talisker
Starting off dram: Talisker 18
Subsequent dram(s): Talisker 10 yo
Other DE's, IB's or OB's you may personally have available.

This will be a tasting of the Talisker distillery offerings, starting with the 18 yo and then opening up to other bottlings you may have. I personally have a Talisker 10 yo and a Distillers Edition (1986) in the lair to sample myself. I'll try to acquire an 18 before Friday.

I've taken a quick gander at the Talisker selection in WM and there's around 8 that have been sampled in their whisky pages, although I know more are out there.

Does this work for you? If so mark it on your calendar and set your alarm. We will follow the same protocol as before... Logging on at the specified time and waiting 15 minutes for anyone who's been delayed before starting. Please use the BBCode for your initial tasting notes. I understand that Matt will be setting up a new thread for this tasting, as was done for the first. Look for us there on Friday.

If someone out there would like to take a shot at hosting a second tasting later on Saturday at a more amenable time for the Pacific rim, please let Matt know. I'd be happy to set my alarm for that!
