Laphroaig and Aphrodite

As a Christmas present for solo sailors, I think it only fitting that we hear a little more detail after this teaser, if you please.


"SeaworthyLass: ... I am now sitting here snuggled under a quilt with a hot water bottle at my feet sipping my favourite single malt Scotch and munching on Greek icing sugar coated rich almond biscuits while awaiting the arrival of Santa (anticipating the sex bit later tonight just to complete things LOL). The Christmas tree is spotlit and a fellow Aussie is crooning carols in the background:

Kylie Minogue - Santa Baby (hottest x-mas video ever) - Video Dailymotion

No regrets at all here .
Merry Christmas everyone!"

More details?
It was Glenmorangie not Laphroaig. I find Laphroaig a little too peaty for my liking .

Aye, Lassie, that's what I we were waiting breathlessly for! Too peaty for your liking, eh?

Yeah, well, this is a family show.

Here's a friend that isn't too concerned about the peaty taste.

I don't know if she's single, Mark, but if she's hanging out with me, you can count on her being available.

Hmmmmm, sorry to disappoint you, but that's not my style at all. I believe a good single malt is definitely best savoured slowly from a fine vessel, not gulped from the bottle .

Oh me too, me too! I'm a classy guy. You don't want her lips on the bottle. Not in my world.

I thought I knew every bottle shape that Laphroiag currently produces but I don't recognise this one...

Then I thought maybe Bowmores as they use a shorter style neck but it still isn't right.

So is it another peaty SM or an rare Laphroiag SM or heaven forbid, not SM at all?

My O My! What an eye. Did I say single malt? And yes, I may have implied single malt to the nice young lady but after I paid her cab fare and her upfront charge, you know, I gave her a lesser libation. She didn't seem to notice. And when she started chugging I realized I had indeed found the right woman and the right single purpose Scotch.

For myself, I don't always drink Scotch but when I do, I drink The Macallun 1926 or Dalmore 64 Trinitas.

On edit: I should note that I spent every dollar of my football winnings. Easy come, easy go.

Make the most of while it lasts Blue Crab . I am not sure that you would want either of those two fine lassies anywhere near your bottles in a few years time:

Thanks Cat Man Do, recognised the face, wracking my brain to put a name to her.




Looks a lot better without the bottle

WooHoo!. Nice pic, Nigel.

Well, this sucks! Thanks to the international flavor of CF, and my buddy Cat Man, now the whole world, El fffing Mundo, knows I'm a bullsh*t artiste!

On the positive, I still have Santa's $480 in ill-gotten gains for boat stuff, and a pint o' West System.



Lassie, you didn't get that babe's number by chance? I like my women a little on the skanky side.

Matey, we knew this at post 1 of this thread but you took every inch of the rope we gave you and knotted the noose yourself .

Shame it was derailed by the alcohol, I was hoping to hear more about the French knickers.
