OK my prelim votes are in. I chose Lagavulin and Port Ellen. Looks like I have a few samples, and bottles of each. Might be time to open a new bottle as well, but I'll wait and see what the final outcome is. :D :D

Well, Lagavulin obviously... :D

...and also Bladnoch for me, though I could've easily gone for either Port Ellen or Springbank instead.

Voted for Bladnoch :shock: simply because it would be a great time to have a Bladdie tasting , keep Ardbeg for when the weather changes in September :wink:

Bladnoch and Glenfiddich for me - both lighter drams for the lighter months.

A couple of the options leading here will be tough for me. Ardbeg is about the only one that I'd be prepared for. :oops:

Glenfiddich is easy enough to get at least a miniature. You can get the 15 for $30-40 as well.


Yeah I was checking that out. My Father has a bottle of the Special Reserve 12yo, so I'm sure I can get a sample or two with no problem. I can get the 15yo for $45 and 17yo for $69 here, so its really not that bad. Worse case I have to buy a bottle I guess. One way or another I'll find a way to partake. :iwbrnt:

On another note I'm running out of space in my cabinet. When I got it I really thought room for 40 +/- bottles would be enough. And I just got a sneak peak at the latest SMWS Bottling List...OMG!! :shock: :shock: :shock: Soooo many goodies!!!! Looks like my Brother and I are going to "create space" this weekend. :wink:

Brutal. It goes for $56 a bottle here. Just bought one yesterday. I need to move back to California.

Matt mentioned that he was unable to get any samples to the U.S. this time. Maybe next time. 8)

Woohoo! Bladnoch and Lagavulin are in the final!

As is Glenfiddich.

And, er, Ardbeg.

Should be an interesting final poll for next month's tasting!
