@Nozinan that's a nice turn of phrase. Maybe you could give us a Haiku.

Here's one:


Infinite Longing

The Polylemma of Choice

Too Many Bottles

To dream of a dram

Whose wings hast flew her farthest

Rejoice, glass is full

Perhaps these should be posted on Haiku House.

So true. I have two bottles of Arran Sherry Cask waiting for me in Japan, but I am not sure when I will get over there. Luckily, I have a few drams in less than an arms length.

@ajjarrett I have a couple of bottles of Armstrong era Bladnoch and a Booker's , and a Writer's Tears CS in Florida. My friend who was to bring them has since moved to Toronto and then to California and they remain in Florida. Who knows when...

Good luck with your wait, assuming they haven't already been consumed. I am lucky, my friends who have purchased whisk(e)y for me, in Japan, don't drink it.

Well, back to watching old videos of The Seekers on Youtube.

@ajjarrett let me know how that Arran is once you try it! I'll be keen to get one once it hits shelves in the states.

@ajjarrett I’m fairly certain they have not been drunk. But it’s unclear if they are still in good shape. My friend left the bottles and some other stuff with a retired professor. I don’t know if he ever plans to get it. I should ask him.

@Wierdo, @BlueNote, the Balblair 1991 3rd Edition (26/27 YO) is a gem. The first time I tasted it I immediately ordered four of them, under $200 CDN, a couple of years ago. Good luck finding something comparable for only double the price today.

@paddockjudge I'm going to crack my 1990 27 yo Balblair as soon as I can safely have a gathering with my boyz. One of them said a while ago "I know you're sitting on something good in there and it rhymes with small bear."

I will certainly do so. I just hope I can get to Tokyo, post-Olympics of course, assuming they are still held. I do wonder when it is supposed to be available here?

Hopefully the professor isn't the splitting image of Jerry Lewis' The Nutty Professor.

I am not sure if this is the first review of the 15yo Revival Non-chilled filtered vs the 15yo Revival chilled filtered, but it is the first one I saw on Youtube. Sadly, my German language skills is just enough to understand Charlie Chaplin in "The Great Dictator". Just kidding.

Hmmm. Well, I think these kind of videos are to be expected.

That's about it for my German...except for "Zwei pils bitte."

@BlueNote "Wo ist die toilette bitte?"

Well, back to the Glendronach topic, which for some is like needing to know where the toilet is. I have seen the online shops that I have access to, meaning that will send to Colorado, have the 18yo and 21yo listed as "out of stock" and have been for a while now. I am almost tempted to email them to ask if the 15yo, is chilled or Non Chilled filtered. But I am too busy making sure my garden is watered and the Japanese are kept in check by killing them in soapy water. In other words, I don't think I will be emailing anyone any time soon.
