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.

The Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition 1990 – Another release from the Diageo stable that I have had for AGES, but never properly written about. Representing the Highlands in the Diageo Classic Malts Collection Dalwhinnie, together with Oban, Glenkinchie, Lagavulin and Talisker complete the collection aof the six original malts launched and marketed together by United distillers in 1988.
This is one of the bottles that started our whisky collection, before we even realized we are collecting. We tasted the Glenmorangie Lasanta at our favorite restaurant and loved it and John brought a bottle home soon after to remind us of a great evening.
The whisky fabric is an amazing place. It is full of vibrant people and amazing conversations. Friendships start over a glass of whisky and lasts for many years. Friendships that transcends whisky. The opportunity to all meet up, happens only a few times a year. One of the biggest events of the year is the Annual Whisky and Spirits Live Festival in Sandton at the beginning of November and it is an event every one looks forward to.
John went climbing in Iceland two years ago. Not a country that was on my bucket list, until we started researching it for his climb. He came back with amazing memories and made us all jealous with photos of the amazing scenery and stories about trolls and sheep. It was also a country that allowed us to add to our World whisky collection.
