Hi Folks, settling in to an Almost There, I really love this stuff and can't wait to try the Renaissance.

It's probably my favourite style although porters are a very close second.

Old Pulteney 17 OB, lovely taste but very short on the finish, then again it could be "my palate is jaded" CF "tired and emotional" :)

Great drams, Great company last night as always!
Thanks Spirit of Islay/Gordon for making the chat available, and Thanks to Ganga, Mikey and Andyt for taking part. Seems as though I missed Woodhill though. Maybe next time!

Glad you enjoyed the SMWS samples as much as I did! :smoke:
