Hi Nathan,
It's very sad indeed to go when so young as he was always a class act full 
of fun and a great sense of humour.
Your comment about the "single malt Scotch" is fitting.

One evening visiting here at home Martin and I decided we'd taste test more 
single malts than we should have. :-) A smashing good time not that we could 
remember the next morning after we "test tasted" about twenty different 
brands. Oh but that wasn't the end, as we still probably had about another 
10 or more. Mind you only little bits! ;-) But when one was particularly 
good it was necessary to have a second to confirm our first findings! :-) Oh 
the pain! :-(

I'm amazed I remembered the evening at all. But then any time with Martin 
was always a memorable time!
He will be sadly missed.
