Top five commenters get some rare LedaigJanuary 3rd, 2010
I asked you to help me pick which rare whisky to open up on Christmas Eve on this blog posting. And, as I posted here on Christmas Eve, the bottle I opened, as decided by you, was the 1973 vintage, 16 year old “Connoisseurs Choice” Ledaig single malt scotch from the Isle of Mull. A delicious whisky!
As I promised I would do, I shared this bottle with many whisky lovers over the holidays. There’s about 1/3 of the bottle remaining, and I want to share what’s left too.
I thought the proper thing to do with the rest of the bottle is to share it with you. And it’s only fair to reward the most active commenters here on WDJK. So, I’m going to send 50 ml samples to my the top five commenters. As of the end of the year, they were (with number of comments):
Sam K (183)
B.J. Reed (125)
Two-bit Cowboy (94)
Congratulations guys! If you can send me a private email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your mailing address, I’ll get the sample out to you. If you want, please feel to post your thoughts of the whisky up here after you had the chance to taste it.
And in case you were curious, those just missing the top five:
Neil Fusillo (85)
J. C. Skinner (80)
Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to a great 2010! And thanks for stopping by.
