The First ‘Whisky of the Week’ for 2018! I start on an Indian note – with the Paul John Classic Select Cask. I love exploring world whisky. Whisky that come from non-traditional countries such as South Africa, France, India or Taiwan. It is probably linked to my endless wanderlust. Drinking a whisky from a new country allows me to dream about traveling there and seeing it for myself. When I got invited to taste a few Paul John during a tasting at Churchills Bar I was understandably excited.
Many years ago I traveled through Russia. It was an amazing experience. Growing up, I never thought I would stand on the Red Square, see Saint Basil’s Cathedral and touch the walls of the Kremlin. But after the fall of Communism, Russia opened up and I grabbed the opportunity to travel there, with both hands. I spent some time in Moscow and then took a boat down the Volga to Saint Petersburg. The experience and landscape was mind-blowing.
A couple of Saturdays ago, I met up with some friends who are all bloggers. They blog about all kinds of topics. From parenting and food to beauty and lifestyle. It was a great morning where we could all catch up and talk a bit about blogging. The venue was the very cool State 5 Fourways. A child friendly venue but we all left out kids at home. It was time for just us.
