First dram was a mystery dram. It took @TAlexander 10 seconds of nosing to identify it as a Forty Creek limited edition.... founder's reserve

Well, I didn't know it was Founder's Reserve, which I had never had before!

I've fixed the image orientation issue but you may need to clear your browser cache to see the results. These were mobile image uploads right? I'd be interested to know which type of device.

@jeanluc First photo was mine, a blackberry classic, but when replying to the original post I couldn't get to the "save" button after uploading a photo so @talexander took over on his iPhone.

Just your company would be satisfactory...the bottles can wait until after the game.

Given the great company, conversation and the fact that this went from about 5 pm to 130 am, I think this meets the criteria for an epic tasting. Thanks all for coming and helping me drink my whisky and for sharing yours!
