Merry Christmas from

Islay Events written in stencil

Merry Christmas. Be it on Islay or elsewhere. I had hoped to make you a Christmas present with a new Islay video, but at best I'll be able to show you that on Christmas Day, more likely on Boxing Day. So instead just a picture of the wee dram I'm enjoying tonight:

Picture of a bottle of Bruichladdich Octomore 05.1 and a wee dram

This is the Bruichladdich Octomore 05.1, 169 PPM, aged 5 years. It's a limited edition of 18000 bottles. Mine has the mildly interesting number 13131. Not that it matters, but I thought I share this useless fact anyway.

For those interested in the weather and the general ambience on Islay today on Christmas eve, a few pictures I came across today:

Ryan Campbell went on a Lovely Christmas "Eve"ning walk in Port Ellen. Andrew of The Bowmore House wishes us a Happy Christmas from the Bowmore House. Mark Reynier reports the weather from I think his home, Christmas Eve, Islay. No snow, 9C, 7knts. Bit of a blow forecast though.

And that's all I have for today. Merry Christmas!

PS: Just chatted with my sister in Germany for almost 3 hours. Got to love t'internet and free VoIP telephony.

Sharing and discussing. Opening up the discussion. Have your say:
