On a hot day…I still drink Bruichladdich

It was 90+ degrees (F) here today, and as a result I might not go for a heavily peated high-ABV whisky, but the Bruichladdich’s I have in the house are very nice. Tonight’s dessert was mountain blueberry pie (my wife is an awesome baker!) after which I had some of the Bruichladdich Links Carnoustie. Yum!

With that said, I am looking forward to cooler weather, and some rain. I just checked and it looks like Islay is getting some rain in the near future, which is pretty much par for the course from what I can tell. This Winter, I’m really looking forward to my Port Charlotte PC7. I’m conserving my PC5 until I get the full range of the pre-production series. It’s shaping up very nicely, but two points don’t really constitute a data set from which conclusions can be drawn. Can you tell I was a Physicist by education? 😉


A business trip (to San Diego)

I’ll be back to blogging on Thursday evening. I’m staying at the Torrey Pines Hilton (and I know you won’t believe it, but I already checked out their bar menu and they don’t have the Bruichladdich Links: Torrey Pines expression on offer!). In fact, for such a posh place (it’s a four-star Hilton!), they have a really lame liquor menu in general. Really pedestrian Scotch choices. Oh well, I’ll be back home to my collection soon enough.

Taking my Bruichladdich on the road

Major road trip starts tomorrow. And what better accompaniment than my Carnoustie Links 14? I’ll be back next Tuesday to further explore the plethora of expressions of Bruichladdich, the Islay malt.

FYI: I have been in Denver (actually: Keystone, CO) for the past several days, and sadly had no opportunity to have whisky. 😦 Sorry for being away from my blog, but it’s not always possible to blog about, or drink, whisky. Sadly.
