@OdysseusUnbound, heat it, or soak it, or fill the bottle with hot water

@paddockjudge You have it down to a science... even in a hotel room.

A variation of my favourite summer long drink is leading to innovation.
I was about to pour a glass of PC diet tonic water with ice and lime, but there were lemons on the table and it was easier to get one than to find a lime. It's not bad (I like the lime better).
My next vatting will include both lime and lemon. Who knows where we'll go from there?

Adding lime to the lemon adds a slight bitterness, but ultimately in this case I would have to say the original lime, ice and PC diet tonic is the best.
As I discovered yesterday, vatting ECBP (70.1% batch), OGD 114 and Stagg Jr (Batch 8) seems to bring out the best in all of them. I may need to do some more experimentation.

Talisker 18 YO and Springbank 10 YO in a ratio of 1:2, peaty, peppery, and sweet.

Arran 10 and Port Charlotte HP in a ratio of approx. 3:1 in my glass. Better than the Arran Machrie Moor I tried the other night - but that was after a couple of straight gins at a tasting. This is damn good.

Laphroaig 10 and QC at 2:1. An excellent tune up for the 10 and improves them both.

@paddockjudge Very daring considering neither of those needs any help. Sounds good, though.
@BlueNote, you are absolutely correct, Talisker 18 and Springbank 10 are both great on their own. The blend of T18 and Hazelburn was something special, it made the Hazelburn better.

@paddockjudge I happen to have some Hazelburn 10 and I’d love to try that vatting but the last time I had a bottle of Tal 18 was 2011, and I had to bring it back from the Motherland. Is it available in Ontario?
@BlueNote, not available in Ontario.... probably not available in Canada.
