The time is right for another bottle-share, or at least, that’s my opinion! After some deliberation I chose to do one with ‘Malts of Scotland‘ bottlings. Its an independent bottler mainly active in Belgium and therefore rather hard to get in the Netherlands. In shops at least, the internet solves those problems.
The bottles are of course, a guideline. There is always the off chance that some are sold out by the time I will place the order. And, contrary to the last few times, I will only get one set of bottles. To fill up 13 spots is rather easy, but 27 is a hell of a lot more. Plus the work and administration involved is also no small task.

I really hope they’re still available by the end of the week, when I expect to fill the list of participants. That should be manageable, since there are only two spots left! I emailed previous bottle-sharers last Saturday and the list filled up rather quickly! Not as fast as the Buffalo Trace Antiques, but still pretty fast.
