    I seem to lean more towards sherry finished single malt scotches these days......LaSanta is a excellent sippin' sherry cask finished scotch made by Glenmorangie (give it a try if you haven't already) but Dalmore is my favorite.

    the buddhist say " live only in the present - which is from waking to sleep - the past has gone and for all purposes no longer exists - I suppose it's nice to think about it occasionally with a glass of malt - but it won't come back and we can't get younger! - and then there is the future - well that is just a void - there is nothing there until we start creating it and as we do it instantly becomes the present - which is why the wise old monks say - there is only the present - live in it! mind you their idea is "do not partake of the present apart from what you can fit in your begging bowl" - tidiy up ya kutti once a week perhaps and then use all your time to meditate and strive for 'nirvana' [whatever that is] - best malt whiskey ever for some!!

    ps: heh Gary didn't you say that your malt was older than 12 years??

    Yeah, 12 yrs old
    Don’t know of any Glenmorangie any fresher

    Laphroaig is another of the fancier single malts of which I don’t afford

    My north neighbor friends know to bring that for a gate opener

    Heh, when I write ‘neighbor’ I should spell it ‘neighbour’ for their sake

    Anyway, I happened on a very ancient golf club from that isle of Islay
    It was in a corner of a common second hand store…for $25
    Worth around $3000
    One piece wood, club head, hand grip and all
    It sits in the shipping container, and hides when I threaten to auction it off

    Funny how conversation wanders

    Anyway, yeah, savor the moment, it’s the only thing we’ve really got
    …and have yet to keep
