    Default Drams for the salmon fishing!!

    It is approaching that time again for us when we go whisky drin . . . . . sorry salmon fishing for a week. My week is unfortunately being truncated by my good ladys bloody audacity to be 40 on the Friday so its down the road on the thursday evening for me.
    However the drams are being prepared. 22 years we have been going away as chums so normally we buy a bottle of the particular year vinatge as a commemoration. However 22 year olds are pretty steep so its bottles to TOTAL 22 i.e. 2 bottles. . one 10, one 12 to total 22 if you get ma drift!!!!!!!! Being us of course it has to be at least 4 bottles each.

    I have taken at the mo the easy option. I am taking a Glenlivet 10, Talisker 12, for my first 22!! and a bottle of Bowmore Tempest 12. My mate from Ayrshire is takingat least 5 of various vintages. Big mate so far is taking 2 bottles of JW Royal Salute and a bottle of Balvenie . . vintage unknown as well as sommit else.

    What does one think?? A nice wee apperitif to capture any magical moments. Any whisky connosieurs want to add in a special or nice one that I could take (price reasonable of course). Does any one know of a reasonable 22 year old malt???? Also options please for another 10 year old that I should get to make up my second "22 pack"
    BTW I'll try and post a pic if I can be bothered on return to make all you whisky drinkers envious. . . . . . esp you Twwed Dog!!

    One of my favourite commercially available whisky's is The Glenfiddich Solara Reserve 15yr old. But you might have a problem finding a 7yr old to partner it. If you have access to The Malt Whisky Society they may have a 22 yr old on for sale at the moment.

    Hi Gav
    Oh, dear, the Findhorn salmon are going to face a crack squad. The Glenlivet sounds fine (any Speyside malt will do) but the only Western Isles whisky worth a place in my cabinet, is anything frae Jura.

    Hey, chum, give my cousin Andy MacDonald (manager at The Glenmorangie or as some folk call it Glenmorangie) a bell and he'll recommend one of Golspie's finest. Unless you make the mistake of mentioning your stance on the Dee and C&R, in which case he'll personally select a bottle of best cask dregs for you!

    Seriously, though, have a great trip.......and leave your computer behind. It'll allow you to enjoy the glen of tranquillity that much better. Slainte.

    HEE HEE Love the wee mans crack and just hope he will be in fine fettle . . . .sure he will right enough. Hes organised I think the usual full beast for food and some Hare stew I believe. that on top of the cullen skink soup and "Ayrshire" fry ups will keep us going. Certainly put a lining on the guts.
    i do all the difficult evening cooking BTW. Think at the mo the wee man is concerned with making sure we can listen to the OF game on radio when we get there. We have blown out the taxi into Portland Club in Inversneckie this time. Too early at 12.30. . . . .anyway couple of bottles at the riverside come Sunday and hopefully the right result Doon rod eh!!!

    Ah the Singleton. salmon on the bottle and all that. . . hmmmmm. thats got me thinking??????

    Now Salar . . . . manager of Glenmorangie. A fine selection of malts too. remember doing the tour with the missus when we were fishing Farrar and at the end of the tour drams were lined up like wee soldiers on the counter and hardly anything was drunk.
    "Now" says I "what happens to them?" "Oh" says the wimmin. "We cannot put them back into the bottle!" . . . . . wife drove back to the cottage I also remember getting stacks odf trout flies whilst chewing the fat with the staff. great people. Dont know if he was there then. . . . about 2005 I think but the customer relations was tip top!

    I'll promise not to mention gill bleeding springers from the Dee. . . honest!!!!!!
    As to computer. . . . .idles a we half hour away at work. . . dreaming and reminiscing and thinking about fishing. Problem is phone now connects to net so even at the riverside i like to see what everybody else is doing!!!!!

    Changed days on Tay too when a polly bag signalled in the air with a crcle for blank, numbers of strokes for fish caught between ghillies is now replaced by a mobile phone call!!!!
