Great show! Way too many drams but still I made great progress! Sampled many, many drams.

Missed everybody from the forum; next time we need to agree to meet at the Bruichladdich table at 7PM or such.

Anytime David, and you'll have to let forrest know of the drams he missed.

Thanks also for the samples David, and if I knew we would have had that many people, I would have reserved a suite.

It was great to meet some of the folks from the Hamilton Whisky Society, and perhaps I can meet forrest at Hi-Times this weekend.

...and of course, it was good to see Peergynt again, and hang out with Mikeymad. Sorry I missed you Lawrence!

I got to meet David Blackmore from Glenmorangie and a few of the Ardbeg guys! Thanks for the Ardbeg glass!
