On The Eighth Day God Made Malt Whisky.

 Uisce beatha "Water of life" is the Gaelic pronunciation  for whiskey in Irish.

Any road this morning the lads were clearing out the kitchen press/cupboard to make room to put a vent in the wall for the tumble dryer.  

Look what they found:


Only a bottle of my favourite 15 year old Scottish Malt whisky:  Dalwhinnie.  They hid it there last Christmas and we forgot about it.

The whisky is now 16 years old.

Aren't I lucky?

    1. It was very nice GZ. We once visited the Dalwhinnie whisky distillery and Culloden. I would like to visit the Highlands again some day.

  5. I guess your family are in the habit of hiding alcohol from you Dave. They know you very well.

    1. You should be patriotic and stick to Irish whiskey! To me it's more palatable anyway.

    2. Irish whiskey is not in the same league YP. Give me a Scottish Malt any time.

    1. I will be glad to see the back of this year River. The 2000s haven't been good ones.

  13. I can tell that you are not an alcoholic. Having said that, maybe you forgot about the Dalwhinnie because you were so blotto?

  14. I think you only know that you are an alcoholic when you stop Tom. I got two bottles last Christmas and one was put away and forgotten about it.
