All of my swaps so far have been enjoyable and worthwhile. I've tasted several whiskies that I might not otherwise have got round to for many years, and found the results interesting.

Last night, though, was unexpectedly a bit special. I drank your Cragganmore. Now, this is a whisky that hadn't even made it onto my radar until I saw it on your list. I thought merely that I liked the name, and that it might be another interesting dram to sample. In the event, though, it was a real "wow!" moment. It's not a typical Speyside by any means, but I really enjoyed it a lot. I'll definitely be buying a whole bottle at some point, and will savour every drop.

So thank you for that moment of pleasure.

I hope that others here find similar special moments through swapping.

Great to hear that this whole sample swap thing is creating some special malt moments 😀👍

Yes, definitely. Thank you for the idea, and thanks also to William for facilitating the implementation.

The only fly in the ointment is Royal Mail...

I've used 2 different Post Offices so far and have stuck to the story that I'm sending computer parts, nobody has raised an eyebrow so far....

I guess I'm just too honest. Whilst I don't think it's any of their business, and I get quite annoyed at being asked, I'm very uncomfortable indeed about not telling the truth.

Guess my local Post Office are not quite so hot on the 'rules' - I'm always honest about what is in the package and haven't had a problem yet, hopefully that won't change.

Hi there, I'm trying to reply to your messages but they all seem to be stuck in the outbox! Any idea why this might be?

Ah right, I mistook it for an email inbox where if it's in the outbox it means it hasn't been sent. Thanks for clarifying!
