We’re all rather excited here at Village of the Drammed HQ, because news has just reached us that one Mr Billy Abbott (known about this parish) has gone & won the blind whisky nosing contest at the Feis Ile Festival of Music and Malt 2015!
So that’s rather special. Well done, Billy!
Last time we had a go at it I think I got 2 out of 7 or 8 or 9 or whatever it is (i.e. barely a result worth remembering – which is probably why I’m so vague on the details), and joined the philosophical group who came up with all manner of post-event theories about how impossible it was and how it was all guesswork, etc. Which is exactly the sort of thing you’d expect from people who were basically guessing.
The *good* news is I sense that we’ve got a podcast topic in the making here.
