Meet #73   |   09/04/16   |   Hosted by Saskia
Two of our old crew were back visiting and decided to host a peatfest - pitting the new Lagavulin 8yo against a Gorda-cask Ardmore.
Other bottles sampled:
#160 Lagavulin 8yo | SSWC review 73a
Hot toffee mocha soy Lattecino, with marshmallows on top. The pick 'n' mix at Cineworld. Ripe banana. Raisin sawdust. Burgundy coloured tapestries. Foosty bananas. Overripe pineapple (conscientious old man jizz, the ageing country singer?). Toffee-flavoured Ronseal. World's most alcoholic banana split. Raisins. Glace cherries in an old library surrounded by dusty books on old shelves. The timber section of Homebase.
Chili ham jam. Bruce Springsteen. Andalusian winemaker getting drunk on Rakia. Cherry Tunes. Alcoholic prunes. Sticky toffee pudding. Chili motor oil. Sciacchetra wine. From fruity to mouldy fruit. Wether's Originals (pronounced as from Germany, where they originated).

  Meet 73   |   A peaty gorda cask - this should blow ones socks off!   (2 photos)
White pepper and lime. Longo from Huntington School. Urinal cake. Too long for how it tastes. Toilets on a Georgian train. Mixed peels soaked too long in brandy. Foosty Vimto. Bile. 'Hot Scotch Bunny'. After dinner mints. Wooden floor polish.
This has one of the best noses I've ever had the pleasure to smell. A one sip wonder. Zimbabwe is above gender politics. Words for men-sluts: cock-a-boot.
