Ghostly

Apparently this is not the reason for the name but I did find that the bitter hoppy taste of this Adnams offering did linger on the palate for an extraordinarily long time - nay uncannily long - after the liquid had sunk from the mouth. Eerie, and nice. Another good one, inducing a feeling of tilting and sinking that was pleasant rather than disturbing. A fine way to go.

Distinguished advertisements. Did they already ask ... no: beg you to sign a contract?

Am negotiating a revised edition of Sample 717 with Adrig drinking Adnams and Edrig having a taste for Edradour malt, obviously

Andrew said...

Adnams and Edradour are unaware of these negotiations yet, of course, knowing less about the future than I do.

Sean Jeating said...

Which drop of Edradour are you going to let Edrig taste? Classic Range or Cask Strength? Even Cask Strength 21 Year Old Oloroso Sherry, by all means? :)
And do you think your namesake Andrew (Symington) will rename Edradour as Edrigour?

Andrew said...

I am sure Edrig would gleefully sample all and any offering from Edradour, and Edrigour does have a certain ring to it, as does Adrig Ale... I suspect a couple of boozy spin-off ventures would meet with much more commercial success than the book).

Sean Jeating said...

Knowing less about the future than you, I wonder they might share some wee dram with me. Andrew?

Andrew said...

Edrig and Adrig share drink? Never! They would surely let you buy them several though, but don't climb into their "van" unless you want one heck of an adventure.

Sounds enticing. I might even feel 30 years younger than I am going to become on Friday the 13th. Who says becoming old is boring?

Andrew said...

And to a Lady Lord you might seem like a virile fresh offering. Hmm. I feel there may be a place in a sequel for a complex but bemused Germanic character

Two copies with the authors autograph herewith ordered.
And if you could convince Adrig, Edrig and my favourite Lady Lord to come to add a dedication: four copies.
