Inside the Bottle: Distilled: 1970

Inside the Bottle… or my thoughts, the what’s inside me. You know the drill.


Well now that was 2017 (okay, nearly, but not quite)…

So how can I encapsulate the year in one word? Enlightening.

I have already written a blog about this year Inside the Bottle: A Year of Smiles (and Whisky) however this is more of reflection of the other things…

Read on if you will, if not, see you in 2018…

I have learnt a lot about myself and others this year. On a “not disclosing owt level”, there are a number of people that have really opened my eyes… some in a good way and some in an “are you for real?” way.

Those that have done it in a good way, I applaud you, for you are the ones that make life the fun rich journey it should be…  nuff said.

I do feel that kindness and rubbing along nicely with people should be the way of life. *Deleted text is below.

I have learned to speak my thoughts, or perhaps to allow them to come out…

I have actually learnt to bite my tongue too 😉

I have discovered (been given at festivals etc.) some wonderful whiskies to try and this has been a delicious experience, to name but a few:

Claxton’s – Glenrothes 19 years old

Murray McDavid – Mission Gold Mortlach 1994 – 21 years old

Douglas Laing XOP Aultmore 1990 – 25 years old

Auchentoshan (a few)

Glen Moray 1994 Sherry Cask Finish

GlenDronach (a few)

Etc. etc… and I really need to lay my hands on some of the above.

I’m looking forward to a whisky / whisky fudge, fun filled year. You up for it?

So what more is there to say than this, I look forward to 2018 with a smile and open arms.

Or just people who make you smile.

Thanks for this year, love Sarah x

Sadly though this is not always the case…sometimes it can return too late to make a difference.

Things change, people change. Change changes people.
