More Questions Than Answers
Our first quiz night proved one thing – we may drink a lot of whisky, but we know very little about it! Another great night at GWC and a huge vote of thanks to the Quiz Inquisitor Mr Bell, whose brain-stretching questions provided much food for thought.
Four teams battled it out for a spectacular prize, which, unfortunately, the Chairman forgot to buy. The winning team was Juliet, Julie, Blackie, Bobby B and Mark, who, as a non-member, should have been disqualified and all his answers stricken. Except he's joining and he didn't get any answers right!
The night was Islay-themed and for those who were at the Bon Accord – but can’t remember – here is what was on the barrel:
Duncan Taylor Islay Blend
Ardbeg Almost There
Bruichladdich 2009 Feis Ila 14 year-old Cask Strength
Lagavulin 2009 Feis Ila 14 year-old Cask Strength
Caol Ila 1996 Gordon & MacPhail
Breath of Islay sample by Adelphi Cask Strength
Laphroaig 2009 Feis Ila12 year-old Cask Strength
Some of Bruichladdies Peated Ale.
I can’t imagine why we’ve taken so long to have a quiz night. It was great fun and it also meant members got a chance to chat with other souls they may not have really spoken to.
Now it’s back to the ongoing research that’s going to be a feature until the next quiz night.
