I finished off the Bowmore last night, so after some Kim Phung with Zane the mood for a new Islay scotch struck, and I fetched a bottle of Ardbeg. I haven’t actually had any yet — I’m waiting for the Kim Phung to go down — but it sure does look good.
A little booklet came in the box, and I can join there’s a registration card (so to speak) that I can mail off to Scotland if I can figure out the postage. A few years ago, at for my birthday Zane gave me a bottle of Wild Turkey Rare Bread — a fine bourbon if you’re into that — and there was a little card to mail in for that bottle. I became a member of the Rare Bread Society, and I got all sorts of stickers, letters, and even a member directory one year. Maybe if I mail in this one I’ll get the same type of fun junk-mail.
Also, I decided to do some of my Christmas shopping early.
