This might be a good time to visit the Orkney Islands. The Highland Park should do the trick, I think. Not yet sure if a 12 will do the job or if the jarring experience calls for a 16.
Golf clubs ?!

finally opened that bottle of Lagavulin 12 cask strength
About time too, good fine whisky is not for collecting and looking at, it's all about drinking the stuff.

At cask strength it may even benefit from a splash of Highland burn water... like I have running through the property, do you want me to send a jug over to you just now?

To bring topic back in track, that-other-site has an interesting survey on front page with a cheap dig at K3.

I know ... I just feel kind of giddy all over.

Maybe that has something to do with car doors ... and tonight's fare of "dreams".

How high up do you live? I'd have conflicted feelings about drinking out of a stream that some sheep might have pooped into or even died in a hundred metres up the slope

I tried a few drops of filtered water and, to my surprise, it seemed to open it up a bit. I think I like it even better than my beloved Ardbeg.
The flavor is absolutely wonderful. I have to think it's what a seaweed and peat salad with a nice balsamic iodine dressing would taste like. It just can't get any better than that!

clearly, you have approximately 962 pages of catching up to do. And we have the mods in on it, that's why it's not in the off topic forum.

I'm actually pretty low at about 300 feet.

A multitude of posts about things, and not one of them even the slightest mention of Fat Freddy or his Cat?!?! Inconceivable!! Of course, I'm not surprised that it was Racer X who trotted out the reference to the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers - he's a twisted and demented soul with exquisitely good taste in off the wall stuff

And that's why I won't buy a FF *or* a K-3!
