Happy New Year - 2017

Since the photo is a special Scottish whisky perhaps the term should be Happy Hogmanay.

Another special thing about today is that it marks the start of the tenth year for this corner of the cyber world.  And if one considers a previous blog that was maintained and written for a group it marks my nineteenth year of this strange addiction of blogging. That long streak should also explain the long stretch from August to December in which there was no posting.  Let's call it a needed sabbatical. 

The bottle above, a special 8 year release of Lagavulin to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the distillery was a gift, and a very much appreciated one.  It's more intense than the 16 year old regular bottling, a little rawer.  It's still delicious.
