We Whisky You a Merry Christmas

This year's Manchester Whisky Club Christmas party took place last night. And this was the line-up of half-finished bottles accumulated during the year's tastings, which were brought back to be duly polished off by the membership.

The best 20 or so were kept back on a separate table to be given out in a prize draw, and I ended up with a nice Douglas Laing blend of Speyside whiskies called Scallywag.

Of the ones relegated to this table, there were still a few gems to be enjoyed. That Teeling third from the right is a really good drop, and there's a bottle of sherry-finished Arran further down which disappeared pretty quickly too.

This was last year's party - - thankfully, this time the other group cancelled so we got to use the bigger room.
