Last week, we joined a whisky bloggers trip to Scotland as guests of Inver House Distillers. We were taken to visit three of their distilleries - Balblair, Knockdhu and Old Pulteney - and our distillery profiles, whisky tasting notes and photos from the trip will be appearing over the forthcoming week or so. However, while we write and you read about our trip, we have decided that we would also like a lucky somebody to sample some the fine whiskies from these three Highland distilleries. As a result, we have a trio of 5cl bottles to give away - AnCnoc 12 years old, Balblair 1989 and Old Pulteney 12 years old.
We had this competition in mind before we went to Scotland but could not decide on the nature of it. However, one particular event that happened on the trip made it a 'no brainer' and led to a one-liner to end all one-liners (and there were a few top ones on that trip!). This became the centre of a conversation on the minibus where it was commented that, if taken out of context, this would be a very obscure and, if possible, even funnier. The whole group started discussing other funny one-liners that they had seen or heard, that when taken out of context didn't make any sense or made you sit up and think "What the ...?"
So our competition is - which one-liner or statement has made you sit up and think "what is that all about?" or "what happened to get to that conclusion?" It can be whisky related or not and may have been said or witnessed first hand by yourself, a friend or a colleague. Equally you may have seen a random text, Facebook status update or tweet on Twitter that didn't make any sense but made you wonder how or why someone had typed it. Also, let us know where you saw or heard it. We will choose our favourite on Friday 12 November and the winner will receive the three samples. Simple.
