What do you buy for the special person in your life who loves peaty whisky? The peatiest whisky in the world of course. The fact that it completes the series from the Bruichladdich distillery of which we already have 2, is just the cherry on the cake. I bought John a bottle of Octomore Scottish Barley for a special occasion. I can’t even remember what the special occasion was. Might have been a wedding anniversary to reward him for surviving with me for another year. 😆 John loves peat! I have a sweeter palate and prefer my peat with some sweeter notes.

About 2 years ago, I found this bottle of Galloway Single Grain somewhere in a small bottle shop and bought it. It was rather affordable and its was a single grain. Not that this means much, but the information on the bottle about it being made on the banks of Loch Lomond looked interesting.
Canada celebrated their 150 year anniversary on the 1st of July. I was fortunate to be in Canada during this celebrations and it was special to raise a glass (or 2) in celebration. One of the glasses we raised was filled with JP Wiser’s Deluxe. I spent quit a bit of time rummaging through Canadian liquor stores during our trip. It was very interesting to see all the flavored whiskies available. Flavoured whisky is not really available in SA. The occasional JD Honey, but nothing as exotic as what I found in Canada.
