I think you should give back Jan 2nd to compensate - taking two days to recover is just out of order :wah:

Big coincidence?

A lot of people don't like it for being "too smokey / peaty" but it suits my taste to a tee.

On the other hand, I really don't get on with Aberlour.

I'm not a fan of any of any of the Bourbons - tend to be a bit harsh for my taste.

That said, any port in a storm and all that, I wouldn't say no if offered.
