Having just made the previous post, I noticed that the 20,000 unique hit mark was passed last night, which is almost hard to believe to be honest. Somewhere out there quite a few people are dropping by my little corner of cyberspace to read fishy mumblings. Thanks to everyone who comes here, and especially to those of you who seem to enjoy it enough to come back. I’ll raise a quiet glass of Caol Ila tonight 🙂

    Congratulations! Is that unique visits, or unique visitors?

    In any case, always happy to see a new Tamanawis post.

    Thanks very much chaps, very kind.

    To be honest I’m not sure, but I think it’s unique visits. I haven’t got round to checking this statistics stuff out in detail yet, but will do someday.. Google analytics seems to be quite good.

    I should add, Tom, that your support and linking has always been much appreciated. Thanks very much. If you ever make it to this part of the world give me a shout and we’ll go catch some 5 inchers (fish, that is).

    Turns out the 18 year old Caol Ila is, as you say my friend, a fine, fine whisky.

    I tried the new Tobermoray 15 year old at the weekend. Strewwwwth…. like toffee apples and cherry pie. Gorgeous, really gorgeous. 50 quid too, so a bit much for the moment..! I’ll stick with the tenny Talisker.

    You keep mentioning all those whiskeys and you’ll have another 20,000 by next weekend. We’re living vicariously through your taste buds…

    Hi Mr Singlebarbed, thanks for stopping by these humble pages. I’ll have to find more excuses to write about whisky. With my collection expanding as it is (friendly friends and birthdays are a good mix), I’ve got plenty to write about.

    mmmm…. where to start… that sherry cask finished Balvenie is a real beauty. Vanila toffee and peaty apples. Soft as butter and smooth as porcelain.

    Congrats! I just started reading your blog, but I’m really enjoying it so far!
