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?

#146 Clynelish 1998 15yo | SSWC review 69b
Whisky club 69 (wahey!). Initial research found a blend called VAT 69, but it didn’t sound that exciting. Teaninich is one of the largest distilleries in Scotland, but very little whisky makes it out as a single malt – most of it goes into blends, including VAT 69.

Hello delicate little bee in a pink dress. My sherbert dip, my marzipants. Watch me drizzle honey all over my lemon, as I slowly unpeel my banana and undress this orange with my teeth. Take a freshly fucked pineapple and cocoNuts and voila – it’s a Penis Colada.
'Pepper Pig' arrives in Herbie (he’s gone bananas) dressed in a cardboard bikini. She walks into the bedroom, the Balkan honey, clutching imaginary hogweed flowers. Ginger spice is in the bathroom taking a golden syrup shower. "I'll give you an Thai massage", she says… a few vodka and Fanta Lemons later came the spicy ending…"pass the butter".

Finish & Comments
The length? It matters. It’s a micro finish, a wizard's penis on a cold day, a short prostitute skinny dipping in a paddling pool. But confusingly, it also goes on… all night long…

This being the 69th whisky club the first tasting game had a fruity twist – extra bonus sex points were on offer for noses, finishes, or tastes that matched AND were sextastic. You may have noticed...
