A short impression of De Whiskykoning’s Bottoms-Up tasting

Yesterday was the annual Bottoms Up tasting. I was invited becaus I went to (or brought enough people to) tastings last year. I hope I make it again for next year.

I didn’t take any in depth notes because I didn’t feel like it. Mostly I didn’t want to stop the conversation tell people to ignore me for a bit, while I start scribbling down notes. I went to have fun. And whisky, always to have whisky.

The setup.

In the end I had some other drams as well, but many of them were wrapped in tin foil. Among these were a Bowmore (nice), a 197x Laphroaig (didn’t like it very much). I took it slow. It’s too easy to get completely hammered, as some people were proving right then and there.

A great afternoon and lots of thanks to Rob, The Whisky King himself.
