12 year-old malt

As I passed through Edinburgh Airport this week, I was still recovering from the security checks as I strolled slowly through the duty-free shop.

Three elderly women were buying a liquid present for whomsoever they were going to see.

One, in a posh Edinburgh accent was explaining to the others which bottle they should buy: "That's a 12 year-old malt", she explained knowledgeably, "they are all 12 year-old as 1995 was such a good year for whisky."

A few years ago, 2004 we were heading off to the sun on a family holiday, my eldest then was about 12 and had obviosly been doing food safety at school. My wife was just to tuck into her complimentary plonk when my daughter cried out "dont drink that mum it's way past it's sell by date, 2002 was printed on the bottle.
