Whisky Selection – Jim’s Birthday Selection Part 2
Now this is part two of a Whisky Selection, it is still the 4th of September 2010, this time it is the Whisky Gifts that Jim received for his 60th birthday.
Jim has to confess he was over the moon by the generosity of his guests and also the time and trouble they took to source some exceptional drams, thanks.
Talk about a little boy in a sweetie shop, that was Jim on his birthday, his party guests kept arriving with bags and boxes under their arms and Jim could only guess what they contained.
The day was great, only a very select bunch of guests were invited, (family, friends and neighbours. not to mention his three gorgeous granddaughters). The invites stated that all guests had to dress up as a Sporting Hero, past, present, actual or fiction. Jim’s wife Jacqueline with a little help form Whisky Boy Nicola, did all the arrangements which included outdoor sporting games, a fabulous Indian buffet and a challenging Quiz for the evening entertainment.
Imagine all this and some smashing drams and presents, Jim thinks it may be a wee while before this birthday is forgotten or beaten.
So in no particular order this is Jim’s Whisky Gifts he received:-
Caol Ila Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, The Distillers Edition, 43% Alc/vol 70cl Bottle, Distilled in 1996 and Bottled in 2009.
