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.
