    Hallo Nancy!

    I am assuming 9pm Rochester time - aka 6pm PST - and will act accordingly when the time comes unless I hear different from you before then.

    This year is a first for 12yo Aberlour which happened to be on sale at the local liquor store. As we speak the seal is unbroken and the plan is to keep it that way until the 2020-01-01 cybertoast which appears to be only 5 dagen from now. :-)

    Het leven is goed,

    Sounds good to me... I'm pretty sure that will work fine... :)

    I still have my Macallan 12 ready at hand... :)

    And only the day after tomorrow now... :)

    It never fails ... so far ... :::knock on wood:::

    No surprise there. I believe I've never had 12yo Aberlour before this 2020-01-01 will be a first for me. See you then!

    Ok... here it is... ;) To Maurice and another year of good times...
    Happy New Year....!

    And now you can tell me how fine a drink it is... :)

    Excellent! I am enjoying a second one as we speak. :-)

    I would probably buy another on sale if it happens again in the future. I am still hoping for a Glenlivet gift pack on one of these occasions. Also a bottle of "Glen Breton 15 Year Old - Battle of the Glen" might be fun for a change. Maybe next time.

    Looks like we pulled off another successful cybertoast.

    12 year old Aberlour.... I'll have to keep that in mind then, for
    another purchase.... ;) Sounds like it might be one to try.... :)

    My nephew brought a Dalvenie 12 to our family get together... that was
    pretty nice, too... ;)

    That we did.... a nice tradition to have gotten started.... <G>

    Hallo Nancy!

    Sounds like it might be one to try.... :)

    I'd go along with that. I still have some left but a neighbour has her eye on it as she wants the bottle (thick heavy glass) and a cork (as per usual) for bottling her home made beer. I have the feeling she will ensure it is emptied in the very near future.

    I think I may have had a shot or two of that back in the 1990's. Seems to me that it is all very good albiet some more expensive than others.

    That we did.... a nice tradition to have gotten started.... <G>

    For sure. I am starting to rethink the 10 year decade thingy for Nov 5th. and make it an annual event while this is all still working.

    Less if we enable the annual Nov. 5th jobber. The below tagline shouldn't take
    too much hacking to reflect the change if we both are in favour.

    And has she...? :) Did she help with the emptying, or does she leave
    that to you.....? ;)

    From my perspective, some are better than others... and more expensive
    doesn't guarantee better... ;)

    Not a problem with me.... The cybertoast can make it special enough...
    and the years go by whether or not one specifically acknowledges them,
    after all... ;)
