Hi Ho, fellow Whisky lovers.

For those inclined to enjoy the Whiskies of Islay - Friends of Laphroaig are mounting a contest to design a tartan for the group.

You can follow the link below to my entry (which you may vote for if you feel so inclined) or test your hand at making a tartan on their program.
My Entry & Tartan Generator

Here's a direct image of my submission for those who don't like following links
The winner has their design become the official tartan of FoL as well as receiving a kilt made up in said tartan.

What could be better for a Whisky lover than wearing their allegiance?

I made the mistake of ordering a Glenlivet (rocks) and a Drambuie (neat) at the hotel bar and mixed myself a Rusty Nail.  I thought that it was the Drambuie that tasted like swill - maybe it was the Glenlivet.  I saw both come from properly labeled bottles but, I daresay, something was amiss in Tucson . . .

Almost a week has past since the end of WWWC and as I have said many times before, what a grand fabulous time it was. However, I must say that the scotch I had during the dinner theater from the dinner bar was... abysmal. Now, granted that blame is on my shoulders when I asked for "whatever scotch you have" after they said they where not sure what they had.. ahem. Anyway... anyone get an ID on that bilge water? (I suspect it may of been Johnny Walker Red... but..) Yes! I know I said I liked Johnny Walker in an earlier post....

It's been called "Ladylike", but Dalwhinnie is near the top of my list.

and allow me to forward on an aether print message (text) from a friend...


The Prince Edward Pub in Toronto, ON, Canada.


This was in response to me asking her to remind me of the bar she was telling me about that carries several hundred different whiskeys... ;)

ah... a home away from home...


reminds me of the time, whilst sipping bushmills, I got asked by a person doing Te-kill-ya shots how I could stand the taste of the stuff...


when I pointed out that it was much better tasting that the particular drink she was partaking of, she responded with "Yeah, but I don't taste it" to which I responded with "then why drink it?"


She didn't have an answer.
