This is not going to help me avoid the homilies but I have a sneaking suspicion that the thing I nearly forgot and couldn't quite remember but have now nearly remembered involves the Scottish Malt Whisky Society.

It is all becoming clear.

Charles - decant the bottle.

My bottle single decanted at 6.30am. All seemed in order. Expected arrival time of 6.30pm.
