Merry Christmas Everyone

Postby John Clotworthy » Sun Dec 08, 2002 10:36 pm

Hi Everyone
I want to wish everyone out there a very happy Christmas and the happiest of New Years ever, OK so lets decide, a cold winters night the snow is falling on the window ledge, you have a vast array of endless malts, what will be in your glass on Christmas Eve? Me, 22 year old Mortlach bottled in June this year by G & M, heaven in a glass.
Slainthe John.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you too !!!

My choice has to be Highland Park 12 years old. Basicly because it is such a warming malt. But Isle Of Jura 10 years old will also make it to my table at the end of the evening. If I had a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label, that would also be on my table. But a Chivas Regal has to do, I guess.

I only drink standard bottling singl malts and luxury blends (well, Teachers is not...) because of other financial commitments. Being young today etc. etc. etc.

Yes, Merry Christmas

With luck I will be pouring the Longrow 13yo cask strength sherry finished (casked?).

John, the finish of that 22 y.o. Mortlach is still going after you poured me a dram of it in The Hague more than 2 weeks ago! Superb dram indeed ....

All the best to you and everyone else on the WM forum!

Happy Christmas and New Year,


I think the Taliskers are a good choice. Switch off the central heating and turn on the Talisker 10.

Merry Christmas to you all.

I guess I will suffer with an Ardbeg 10 yr old.

Seems that I will celebrate Christmas with Springbank 10YO or Lagavulin DE 1986, I think the last mentioned suits better to this time of the year but on the other hand friends are coming for the New Year's Eve ... hmmm, hard choice which to pour to kin and which to friends. Image

Kippis,
Ize

P.S. I forgot to wish everybody Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Bah! Humbug!

I'll give Bob Cratchet a glass of J&B - he can bring his own coke ;-)

I wish everybody a Merry X-Mass and a very prosperous New Year, to each one of you.

For me it will be the Bunnahabhain 1968 "Hogmanay Edition" (catching up with some "auld acquaintance")

John, good choice the Mortlach even I came to you for a dram, after a great tip from Lex....

Slainte Mhath,

A friend - what a friend! - has invited me for a drink on Christmas Eve, and promised
me a dram of the Bunnahabhain 1968 Hogmanay
Edition, so like Erik Huurmann I will be
getting the holiday off to a great start!


May Christmas bring you all the dram you desire - and may the New Year bring you a lot more! ( special regards to Frances, John and all at Drumchork Lodge Hotel - wish I could be there!)

Cheers

Rudolph

This Christmas Eve, I shall mostly be drinking Brora, having just taken delivery of the Signatory Unchillfiltered 21-year-old (I know I said in a different thread that Brora was just getting too expensive and I wasn't going to buy any more. But I lied. Image )
