Pedantic assholery alert.

Scottish whisky is spelled without an e.

Irish stuff is whiskey.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Actually, the Scottish is spelled with an "e": uisge beatha

Whereas in Ireland it is: uisce beatha.

Well, I know, but having some fun isn't forbidden (yet). And: I goofed – thought so. :mrgreen:

↑ Nice, love how the levels go down. In French the loss due to evaporation from the cask is called "la part des anges", angels' share.




Some time ago I had a Douglas single malt, single cask, 10 years, from the Laphroaig distillery. Pleasant but without distinguishing characteristics. Not worth a picture.

The 2 and 4 cl are of course capacity. As for the rest I'm not sure at all but it could be (as I vaguely seem to remember) some legal markings that said capacity is real.
If you're really interested I'll ask the bartender.
