Tasted the Alligator for the first time last night. Gentle smoke, peat, graham cracker pie crust, clotted cream, toffee. No detailed tasting notes since it is unobtanium at this point.

I also enjoyed glasses of Balvenie Tun 1401 Batch Three, Yoichi 15, Campbeltown Loch 25, and Glen Elgin 16.

Feeling a bit under the weather today. Fun time though last night, and yes, about approx. 30% of the above ended up in my friends' mouths. Augh. That didn't sound right. I shared the glasses, and yes, I did try to keep my side of the glasses turned and I made a mental note of where the glass rim was still clean. Actually, I must confess that I'm something of a germaphobe, but I'm trying to overcome the aversion.

Be this as it may, I've never been a miser. Maybe a red-headed bastard stepchild, but never a miser.

Word had it this one was a winner and word was correct. And now, it is all gone. Goodbye sweet Ardie, goodbye. Perhaps we shall meet again in a better world. Ralf the Mouth never sang thy praises, but alas it should have.

In the meantime, there's always . . . the Mouth of Sauron?

Actually, to amend the title: it should read "We wants more. . . ." Gollum usually spoke in the royal "we" (himself and the precious ring of great power)which was symbolic of the Planet Saturn, I should think. Why? Well . . . ever hear of the Saturnian Death Cult? I have and I'm certainly not a card carrying member. How did I hear of it? Well, there's this thing called the Internet. . . and, yes, some things one ferrets out of obscure websites actually turn out to be true, although one has little way of knowing for sure. . . .

I fear I will forever regret not getting this one. Soon after returning to Sendai, I was in a downtown liquor store and this elusive bottle was sitting on the shelf. I only had a little cash on me and the shop didn't take credit cards. I went back the next day but it was gone... : (

Very sorry to hear that. A real sob story. For me, it's much worse when I end up not getting something that I could have got. Regret is a powerful emotion, particularly insofar as consumerism is concerned ;) Snap, snap! Them's the alligator's teeth comin' up air. . . .
