The morning after…

You will not believe this. My mother called me at 9 o’clock this morning just to wish me happy birthday again. Ouch.
But since I’m up anyway now I might just as well scribble a few words of praise and thanks.

Last night was every inch as good as we had hoped it would be! You showed up in numbers and quality and we had cracking time chatting to all of you and seeing you drink fantastic whiskies. Thanks a million, guys!

Some bars welcomed us more than others and managed us better, we will write all about that soon. There are also loads of hilarious pictures, courtesy of Paula, which will be posted here, on our flickr profile and on facebook group. Stay tuned in and you won’t miss them. Did I mention they are funny?

Before the main article is ready, just a wee teaser for you. A list of whiskies sampled last night. If there are any omissions, please let me know.
