New Years 2010-Drams Around the World

Postby Ganga » Tue Dec 29, 2009 4:28 pm

I thought I would set this up early enough that all can join in toasting the New Year to our friends around the world. There will be a link coming to show who is in what time zone.

Here is a Link to a nice (simple) countdown website...

http://www.timeanddate.com/counters/multicountdown.html


It gives the location and Time Left... And then you can click on the location and it gives you a countdown for that place...

I will be using this to toast around the clock (or as much as I am awake...)

Cheers,

(11hours till the first one... )...

Hopefully I am feeling better by tomorrow night (fighting a cold and sinus infection), so that I can join in. Though the last two years I barely managed to stumble to bed :dead: after taking part in this. Great fun though.

scary thought... 2oz every hour for 24 hours and my liver will be pickled. :dead: (ok, maybe not... I really am THAT big... ha ha...)

that said... I may start around 9:00 or 10:00p... at least welcome in Eastern North America...

Planning on being here to ring in our UK friends. Will try to "toast" in some of the regions during the working hours today. Also, happy new year to all those that have already made contact with 2010.

Boy they come fast and furious in the far east... seems like every 15 minutes to half and hour...

Will give a toast to my Indian Friends in Dubai with some Mountain Dew at lunch (still at work)....


Trying to come up with what to have for beverages tonight... and I think I am going to start out with 9yo's (or 09's if you like) whiskies and then move onto 10yo beverages... (09->10 get it?)

Some examples:

Ardbeg 9yo 1998 (54.1%, OB, "Almost There" D-98 B-07)
Caol Ila 9yo 1994 (43%, Signatory, 6.9.94-2.3.04 cask 10867 240/372)
Macallan 9yo 1997 (46%, Murray McDavid, Bourbon/Ridge Zinfandel, b:2007, /2000)

and

Aberlour 10yo 1993 (40%, Duncan Taylor, Trader Joe's 1993-2003)
Glenmorangie 10yo (57.2%, OB, "Traditional" Non-Chill Filtered)
Macallan 10yo (40%, Brands Development, Trader Joe's)

Any New Years Beverage Plans out there... ???

Cheers,

I like it Mikey, going from 9yo's to 10yo's. Good idea! I'll be around, but it will be later on this evening. I just found out I have some unexpected company coming over, just not sure how long they'll stay. :D :D

Evening all. Seems like the fun has started already.

I haven't strated dramming yet as the last two nights have been particularly heavy, but I'm getting set up now.

Way cool Willie. I'll be getting out of the office in a little bit. Then I need to go get the boys. Should be on at home before you hit 2010.

Happy New Years to all those I have missed already, a little Balvenie 10 Founders Reserve for you (thanks for the sample Jeff).

I will be in and out until the wife gets home from work and then I should be on for the rest of the night after that.

Yeah, a local beer called Brugse Zot Dubbel (dark beer) at 7.5% vol. In fact, I just finished it. I think I'll switch to single malt again. I got home 30 minutes ago due to work so I missed the fire works in the street. :x
