IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN - ARDBEGGEDDON INSANITY RULES!
Here we go again... Slur Dave and I are on a direct Southwest Airlines flight from Manchester to Las Vegas and all systems are GO! Another hectic start for me this year. We got a good 4 inches of snow in Portland on Thursday and were attending a dinner party in Yarmouth hosted by our good friend from Vermont - La Betsy! Here's a link to this event.
We got home around 10:30, shoveled the driveway and I hit the road for the ChelmsfORD Drammery around midnight arriving around 1:45 am. Slur Dave was finished packing and totally wired. He poured me the first official A7 dram:
1. Mortlach 1970, 32 yo, 40%, G&M - GREAT DRAM! We settled in here and I had several of these without bothering to try anything else. Dave tossed in a full bottle into an empty spot in my bag at the last minute to add yet another "undeclared dram" to the menu for A7.
Crashed around 3:30 am and set the alarm for 7 am which came along WAY too quickly. For my skalk I chose the Ardbeg FEIS ILE dram, ex-Fino cask. That did the trick and we were enroute to Las Vegas in no time at all with no snafus anywhere.
Here are links to each of the days activities and excesses as channeled by your host - Doctor Entropy (photos only for now...)
I don't know if we have high speed internet access at the house and of course, updates will largely depend on how well this works. Check in early and often!
