Can we have an option of "don't really mind as long as we know well in advance"?

Ask and ye shall receive....


That's the one I picked because obviously sometimes both Friday and Saturday will not be suitable. If I'm there, I'm there.

Now, I better start stocking up on Balvenie...

Friday nights I'm usually in the pub doing a whisky tasting of my own from 6pm anyway. If I manage to tear myself away and I've not had too many then I'll join in...

Great, whilst you're in the giving mood I'd also like a Lagavulin 21yo. Thanks.

If we make it a Friday one month and a Saturday the next and rotate that way then that would give everyone a fair shot at being able to join in, maybe?

Fridays generally work out better for me since my wife usually has somethng planned for Saturdays. However, I like Butephoto's idea of alternating the days to get more people involved. :thumbsup:

And if the tasting night is on a Friday that month, then we can have a tea tasting on the Saturday!

I voted Saturday, because of no work I can join the tasting in the afternoon. Our European members are a good 8-10 hours ahead of the U.S. Pacific coast.

I seriously considered the last option but devolved to Saturday, for, as Mikey and Ganga can attest, the time zone difference is pretty tough for making a decent starting time with those on the other continent. With a Saturday start, I can be blotto by 4 pm here, while JJ is blotto by 10 pm there!

C57:
Do you mean to imply that you "Spit" after you taste? How far the British Empire has fallen.

My mother taught me to swallow whenever I put someting edible or potable in my mouth and not to spit it out. You must have missed that lesson.

Honestly, I really can't persuade myself to rinse/spit while doing a tasting. It seems like such a waste, especially considering what we have to pay for the ruddy stuff over here. So I stand by my "Blotto" comment and look forward to you joining JJ and myself as we drink for effect.
