Hmmm highland one eh. I tried a Dalwhinnie some time ago which is also a highland one but can't say it excited me that much. I bought my brother an 18 yr Glen Livet which is wonderfully smooth but also not quite that exciting. Great for a quite drink Now, the 10 year Ardbeg. That numbed my face. The 15 yr Jura also isn't bad. Of all the whiskies I've drunk the 18 year Talisker is a firm favourite. Their 57 is quite exciting. About 30% stronger than the standard whisky of around 43-45%. Packs a real punch.
when one waits for a wine to age, one doesn't rush
The only time I looked at my uni notes was when I took them out from the box from under my bed and tossed them into the recycling bin, 10 years after I graduated... which was 5 years ago....so yeh, I graduate from my undergrad...15 years ago XD
Must say you have a very mature outlook on things. Although I'm sure a lot of other soompiers would nod and agree, I'd be pretty sure many of us would not be able to do the same thing I think you've picked the best option. There's no need to commit right now since you two are only just getting to know one another.
