Meet Deets
Meet #69   |   14/11/15   |   Hosted by Russell
Russell hosted our 69th meet, and things got SEXY. Not only the saucy vibe, but also a couple of distilleries we've barely scratched the surface of.. how would they stack up?
Other bottles sampled:
#145 Teaninich F&F | SSWC review 69a
We were tired of innuendo so back to normal rules (though some continued to be lurid..) Sweet and sour like a pickled grape. Sweet and rich like flambéed bananas, raspberries, Crunchies, Christmas cake and wine. Sour like green apples and the last salty vinegar strokes of a final fatal asphyxiwank, in a flat meticulously cleaned in preparation for said act, mingled with the tang of the lemon that he failed to bite down upon at the crucial moment (every day’s a school day!). Sweet like cherries, sour like a Mafia Sugar Daddy’s cologne.
'Delisious', delicious prunes and Irn Bru. Or is it baked dates? Or is it caramelised baked dates.. with moscovado sugar? Perhaps a treacle-as-in-molasses tart, a tarty tarte-tatin or a pumpkin pie with tobasco. Burnt toast and MELONS and CUMin (hahahahahastophahhahah). Then calming down with a Desi Chai and a wee watch of Netflix with chill-i powder. (NO MORE SEX POINTS!)

Finish & Comments
Is 9 inches more than adequate? Somebody’s still unpeeling that orange with their teeth. It’s a little minty and peppercorn sauce-y. Green grass. Custard.
Whisky clubbers are capable of innuendo without encouragement. Encouraging such behaviour will take you to depths of depravity, feats of facetiousness and passages of puerility you never knew were possible. Do so at your own risk.
