Good afternoon! Server maintenance is scheduled for Thursday 7th March at 12pm UTC and there may be some downtime experienced. All being well the interruption should be kept to a minimum. Thank you :)

Hey @Nozinan, I've been making an effort finish up open bottles in my cabinet rather than buying new stuff. I found a bottle of BNJ recently (remember that?), I'd forgotten how good it was. Shame they discontinued it! How about yourself?

@jeanluc I've had a cold all week so nothing since my Uncle and I shared some Balvenie 14 YO Caribbean cask.

I would very much like to try some BNJ before I die.

Over the coming month with March Break and very little call, I hope to make a little headway on some reviews I've been meaning to write, and maybe free up a few sample bottles.

We're still working on optimising the new server, apologies if the service has been slow today. It should settle down now. JL

BNJ? The thin-textured nectar of the Gods! @Nozinan, it may be years before I open it, but I do own a bottle of it. I wish I owned 5 bottles of BNJ. It is one of my most treasured whisky possessions. My thanks to @Maltster, who was so kind as to give me a bottle of BNJ from his Vienna stash 5 or 6 years ago. It was very hard to get even then.

For noobies, BNJ = The Bailie Nicol Jarvie, a character from Rob Roy by Sir Walter Scott. The whisky was a blended Scotch made by Glenmorangie, with about 60% malt content. It is extremely tart lemon citrusy, in a magnificent way.

A memorable bottle of BNJ kept me company over a couple weeks in 2010 from Oxford to Liverpool to Edinburgh through the highlands to Skye! I think it was toast by the time we got to Islay.

Would I buy another bottle of that if it popped up? Sure. Would I relive that experience of drinking my first one? HELL YES.

@MadSingleMalt yes, indeed! BNJ is nothing if not zippy.

Yes, a very fresh, light, zippy, refreshing whisky, as I recall.

@jeanluc The "image up load" function on the "My Cabinet" seems to not be working, following the schedules maintenance. I tried from both a smartphone and a desktop computer without success.

Apologies for the downtime this afternoon. We've had a few teething problems with the new server but have had an engineer in to do some fine tuning today.

@jeanluc When you get a chance please look into the image up load issue. It seems to have come back since the tweak to the new server. Thanks in advance.

@fiddich1980 thanks for the note I will investigate this on Monday morning UK time. The previous fix may have rolled back for some reason.

@jeanluc thanks for your attention on this. I tried uploading a photo on my review as well (MacBook and iPhone attempts) if this helps.

Investigation is ongoing with this issue, please bear with us. It seems that some software packages – relating to images and image uploads – have been disabled on the server. I will update as soon as I have more.

@jeanluc Wasn't there a story about a man given three wishes....he wished for a bottle of scotch that would never empty. When he tasted it, he wished for 2 more!
