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.

It was a dark and stormy night… Thunder storms are a regular occurrence in summer. After a hot day, afternoons cool down with dark clouds gathering and lightning that streak across the sky. When a storm hit in the dark of night, it can be really scary. I was standing in the doorway, listening to the thunder and seeing the lighting flash accross the horizon. The wind howling around the house and rattling at the windows; rain pouring on the roof. The noice made by the storm drowned out all other sounds.
I capture my whisky tastings in a pretty notebook. I love the act of scribbling notes, pictures and drawing emotions on paper. Sometimes a whisky create such strong emotions what it is easier to draw an emotive face on paper than to try and capture the emotion words. Old school, I know. John loves technology and he captures his thoughts via speech recognition software. Perhaps I also prefer paper because paper does not complain about my bad spelling. Capturing my thoughts digitally leaves me with a lot of red underlined miss spelt words that I first need to fix before I can continue. My pretty book is more forgiving. My short hand doesn’t need to be spelt correctly.
