St Valentine's day treats...

Just a quickie to say Happy Valentine's day to all you lovers out there! We hope that you've got that table booked or have the night off for some quality time with that special someone.

If you happen to be looking for a special lovin' cup then The SMWS are there to assist you!
The society have produced a specially labeled bottling - 125.18 'A Chocolate Valentine', which should warm the hearts and palates of even the most thorny of lovers out there.  The 13 year old dram is from a first-fill hogshead (which amusingly, is what a former girlfriend used to call me) and is limited to 298 bottles.  

If you fancy keeping your loved one happy, or snuggling up on the sofa with something sweet, rich and well dressed - but can't afford to hire George Clooney/ Keira Knightley for the evening, then check out the next best thing!

We happen to have a bottle here, but Mrs Caskstrength is looking like she might explode, if I dare to type some tasting notes out now, instead of heading off to our romantic rendez-vous.
