    Sjmaerig lekker, duudelik wie Ben Nevis huert te sjmake. En dan waor dit nog mer 'n bourbon vaat, op sherry waor 't mesjien waal get te väöl van 't goeie gewaes. 88/89.

    (With so many people posting their notes in their own languages, I felt that this was the appropriate occasion to do so for once as well. Sorry, Google Translate won't help you very much)
