"If it's not good enough to drink slowly, then it's not worth drinking"

Whisky Ship

 7 Dec 2003  

Last weekend I visited the fifth annual whisky exhibition here in Zürich, the Whisky Ship. There were sev­eral exhibitors, each offering samples of lots of whiskies. Un­for­tu­nately (for my bank account, that is) they also sold whole bottles =)

According to my tast­ing notes, I tried 60 whiskies over the four days... The highlights were:

Bowmore Seadragon91-92 p
Bowmore (Celtic Heartlands)       90-91 p
Longrow "Dreams" 198790 p
Brora (DL) 1982 19 y.o.90 p
Longrow (Samaroli) 198789-90 p
Port Ellen (DL) 1979 21 y.o.89 p
Rosebank (DL) 1975 27 y.o.89 p
Macallan (Celtic Heartlands)89 p
