Always a fave…
Lovely old-style bottle of Laphroaig.
This is a great single malt and a good value.
I like Talisker 10 y.o. but hadn’t heard of this one. Let’s give it a whirl, shall we?

A recent Ebay find. David Glen’s collection from the late 1800s. Well-loved, but still very readable. There are some great tunes in here.
From Ceol Sean: “David Glen, the son of Alexander Glen, was a pipe maker in Edinburgh, and published pipe music from from 1876 to 1911. David Glen’s Collection of Highland Bagpipe Music as presented here includes all seventeen books, and the tutor book. In all, there are over 1100 tunes in this collection, making it the largest collection of pipe music. The first book was published in 1876, and the last was published sometime around 1900.”
