I should probably feel guilty.

After all, I’ve just spent more on a single bottle of booze than I ever have in my life. No, it wasn’t the ten thousand pound bottle of Glenfiddich (one day…), but I have just bought a bottle of the Bushmills 21-year old that I’ve been after for the last couple of years. Assuming, of course, that the website wasn’t lying about them having it in stock…

So I should feel guilty. But somehow, I don’t. I’ll probably feel guilty when I’ve drunk it all, because no matter how slowly I drink it, I’ll still feel like I’ve rushed it. It’s the same logic that has lead me to have a bottle of Bushmills 12 (only available at the distillery shop, and very lovely indeed) unopened all year. My parents bought me a personalised bottle of it as a gift last Christmas, and somehow, there hasn’t been an occaision special enough to justiy opening it all year, this despite the fact that I’ve got through three bottles of whiskey that cost more than the 12…
