Have a wonderful holiday everyone!

Joseph, sounds like you had a good sampling on Christmas Day. I received a Aberlour 16 D.C. for Xmas. Have not opened it yet. How is it?


Danny, sorry to jump in but I have the Aberlour 16 DM and enjoy it greatly. Also can you send me some info on the CSN Festival?

Lawrence, glad you did. Thanks for the info. How are things in Victoria.

The CSN Festival is on February 27th, 7 to 9 PM. Cost is $50 per ticket. I talked to David last week and he thought they would have around 70 expressions there. There will be some prinicple reps and I think some local reps. I got the impression that David is hosting this one and wants to turn it into a bigger event next year.

Danny:

As Lawrence mentioned it is great! One of my favorites.

Nose: Very big -- sherry, fruits, honey, citrus, vanilla.
Palate: Full/ sweet, sugar/ fruits, sherry, vanilla/oak.

I love the 16 DC , I find it has more depth and complexity than the 12yr old (which is lovely also).

I think you will enjoy it..

Joseph

Tonight was my evening of nice whisky tasting and drinking at a friend's, but I'll report tomorrow what I was lucky to enjoy.

Hi Danny, thanks for the information. I doubt if I will be able to attend this year but you never know.......
