Photo bombing: The Usquebaugh Society’s 25th Anniversary party

I generally only take pictures of the drams I’m having, and yesterday afternoon was no exception. The pictures and impressions of the event itself are on Facebook in a lot of different posts by a lot of different people.

Here’s the booze I had:

Apart from these I remember (which is kind of miraculous) having the Whisky Nerds GlenDronach 1995 (which was good, a review will follow), the new club bottling (which was a lot better than I remembered) and the old club bottling (which I still love)
