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.

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.
A couple of days ago, a friend asked for some advice. She needed to buy whisky as a gift but did not know where to start. Walking into a bottle store can be a daunting experience. The sheer volume of products available make choosing tough. And knowing what whisky is worth buying within a smallish budget can be doubly difficult. And she needed to impress with something exceptional.
