Ash are you asking for some help to tidy up the place, or do you want donations? :wink:

A SECOND bottle?? B*gger me, you must be on Tommy Cooper's Whisky diet. "I've lost three days already..." and 2 bottles!!

Lose any more and bang goes your diet.

Thinks: did you leave it at the checkout counter?

Did you open it in the car because you couldn't wait til you got home and stash it under the car seat?

Did you...hide it from the wife in such a safe place not even you can find it?

Did you...drink it all and forget that you did? :dead:

Did you mistake it for bleach and tip it down the loo?

thats the favourite, but with the house a mess i cant think where, been in the cellar, back room, pantry, under the stairs and in the attic - no joy

Maybe your wife hid it from you.

Aye Mr TH, there's a sense of "been there, done that" about your suggestion.

Meanwhile Ash, If i happen to see it lying about I'll be sure to keep it for you.

For a day or two at least...

Definetly not, just trying to think out the box, (or the tube) as to what Ash has done with it.

Did you take it to the rcycling thinking it was empty.

Ash,

Has it turned up yet?

If you don't find it then I would be more than happy to send you a wee minture (quite rare!) to make up for the sad loss.

Where are you based? If you are in the North of England then you might like to come along to one of my tastings at The Whisky Lounge where we will be nosing and tasting cask samples that were used to create the first batch of Signature!

Check out Eddie Ludlow's (The Whisky Lounge) postings in the events section of the forum to keep track of dates and venues or see http://www.thewhiskylounge.com

That goes for all of your poor house mates too - if they have finished tidying up your mess!

Ash have you looked in the pocket in your car door? I'm always losing things in there, hair clips, earrings, CDs and stuff. It's like Christmas when I remember to clear it out. Or the drawer under the phone. Things just turn up in there after they've been off adventuring on their own.

Andy, um, I just remembered I've lost a 17yo rum cask Balvenie, so any chance of a mini, please? :angel:

Treaclesponge,

Sorry but there aren't any 17 y.o. Rum Cask minis available. But if you come along to one of the Whisky Loung events in York or Leeds then we will be tasting it there along with Doublewood 12, Signature 12, Single Barrel 15, Portwood 21 as well as some cask samples and Balvenie new-make. Should be good.

http://www.thewhiskylounge.com for tickets

BTW - Treaclesponge - thats quite a good tasting note for Balvenie I think!

Ash,

Glad to hear that you are going to be coming along

Is there anyone else reading this saga of the mystery missing bottle of Balvenie that wants to join us for the tasting at The Whisky Lounge?

check out details and tickets at http://www.thewhiskylounge.com if you are interested

Gee Ash
I do feel for you, losing that must be heartbreaking? I have never seen that one here? But if I did see one I will let you know? :)
