RE: Fw: Water.
Add my name to the Histology Single Malt Whisky Society. Each one I've tried
is distinct and
delicious and made to be savored warmed slightly in the hand so as to
appreciate the fragrance. Much like the appreciation of fine wines.

I have to vote for Springbank. A touch of peat, and lovely sherry cask
aging. I can't wait for the 15 year to make it to the states in August. So
when is the first meeting of the Histology Single Malt Whisky Society?
Washington Adventist Hospital

And the best single malts are not generally exported to the US. There are
some really good ones however, the oldest and best stay home.
