These past couple of weekend I have been testing a lot of whisky and cheese pairings again. After the craziness that was June and July, weekends have slowed down and lefts some space for experimenting. Sitting back, grabbing a few whiskies, opening up some interesting cheese and in general just relaxing a bit. I tried a goats cheese and bourbon pairings, but that elicited a rather negative response from John.

My never ending quest to find affordable, drinkable whisky. Finding well priced blended whiskies is rather easy. There are plenty of them around and some of them are actually quite good. However, the Single Malt group, is a different story. There are not too many new Single Malts at a good price available locally in South Africa. With the worldwide increase in Single Malt prices and our unstable currency, it might become even more difficult in future. My ongoing search led me to the Muirhead Silver Seal Maturity Single malt. I found it at a Pick n Pay. I have never heard of Muirhead, but it was in the affordable category, so I grabbed it.
It is nearly Father’s Day. For John, the best gift is a card or something made by his daughter. However, if I add a bottle of whisky to the card, I know that he will love it even more. Father’s Day is a celebration honouring fathers and applauding fatherhood, paternal bonds and the influence of fathers in society. This year, Father’s Day falls on the 19th of June. Are you stumped for a gift? What to buy the man who has everything? Want to avoid Character socks again this year? Whisky is a perfect gift for the male parental in your life. To make it easy for anyone to buy their husband, dad or grandfather a gift, I have compiled a list of our Top 5 whiskies to give to the man in your life.
