October Live Tasting - Preliminary Poll

Postby Ganga » Tue Aug 26, 2008 10:34 pm

I see no reason to fumble about with starting the October preliminary poll. Since we have a shorter list, I will limit it to two votes apiece for the preliminary round. Also, note that the tasting will occur the weekend of October 24 and 25.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

This will also serve to remind everyone that Malt-Teaser will be hosting an on-line tasting September 27th please see his thread for whiskies and how to get them. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=9450

On October 4 there will be a Port Ellen tasting. If you would like to join in please see the thread for this tasting. If you have none but would like to participate, I'm sure we can accomodate you. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=9473&start=35

In the middle of November, there is an Irish Whiskey tasting. Please see this thread for more information. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=9468

I've enjoyed every Laddie I've had, and there are so many to try - so I'm starting with that.

St. Magdalene has faced rejection too many times. It is my second. (Plus I've had one sample of it and it was excellent - ty ryguy)

Voted Ardbeg because, ... well if you don't know, I can't tell you. Also, St Maggie's because Stuart and Ryan have been trying for a while.

Cheers

After all Willie, it is Ardtober. :D

Haven't voted yet in the prelims. Waiting to be swayed.

I voted Ardbeg (because it's so damn good) and also St. Maggie's (for obvious reasons stated above).

St. Magdalene - Not as much because I want to try more (obviously I'd love to though), but I really think other people need to be shown what a great distillery it was. Every sample I've had has been really good to excellent IMO.

It's the runaway Ardbeg Express! :shock: I guess we really do want Ardtober as an official month. :P I had to vote for Bowmore, it looked so lonely.

Me thinks Ardbeg will make the finals. :lol: However, it's quite the chase for #3 qualifier. Still, the preliminary poll doesn't end until next Tuesday so there's still time to vote.

I voted for Ardbeg and Glenmorangie as these are the two I have most expressions of.

I've never actually made it to on of the live tasting nights yet, but have my fingers crossed I can make October.

Martin, we are also doing a Port Ellen tasting on Oct 4th, and an Irish Whisky tasting Nov 15th. And if you can make it, Bladnoch is next up...it's being held on Sept 20th. :thumbsup:
