Already open:
10yo 2007

Corryvreckan

I might buy an Uigeadail and an Airigh Nam Beist before the tasting but will not open them both.

You are very right Ryan, as soon as I posted I realised it is gibberish.

It's ok Ras! I'm really looking forward to this tasting. I've got lots of nice Ardbeg samples to try already, with more on the way!

I can currently bring the following:

Ten L8
Ten L8 (new bottling)
Renaissance

I also have a Ten miniature with the first part of the bottling code being 'L3', so whether this is a 2003 bottling or not I'm not sure - don't know if the bottling codes work the same for miniatures or not. Would be good to compare to the other Tens if it was though!

Gordon,

It would be good to try the VYA as well, but I'm sure I'll try it one day.

You have quite the lineup for that day.

I'd suggest a small variety. Maybe along the lines of Sigbig, Cadbeg, CC, a 1970s, Renaissance and new Ten.

Its very depressing, but I can't be here on Saturday night. :(

Shame, because I had a nice healthy line-up.

We're going to get this thread setup for Friday Willie as several people have had conflicts develop for Saturday.

Currently my Saturday looks like Ardbeg Tasting, HiTime Tasting, S'tan's Hepatic House of Horrors Tasting. :lol:

I'll definitely be around Friday evening to get this started. It looks like I have a very nice lineup, so I'll get going on Friday with it.

Plus I just found out that my wife and I are 'boys free' Saturday evening, they are spending the night at my inlaws.......so........ :angel: :angel: :angel:

Needless to say, I'll be giving it a go come Friday night!
