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.

I have not done a whisky and cheese pairing for ages. I have been savoring all the old favourites, so it is high time I try something again. The Wyke cheese selection at Checkers is amazing. The mature cheddar is a firm favorite in our house and regularly paired with the peatier drams. A couple of weeks ago I found a Wyke Bonfire cheese which is a smoked mature cheddar with paprika. It sounded rather delicious, so I decided, this is the perfect cheese to experiment with.
A short couple of weeks ago, it was Mother’s Day. I wipe my eyes and suddenly it is nearly Father’s Day. I was spoilt on Mother’s Day with breakfast in bed and a few special gifts. It was a wonderful day that I could spend with my family. Now it is my turn to celebrate the amazing father that John is. I looked around for special items that will make him realize how special he is to us. Items that convey how much we appreciated him. One of my favorite places to look for personalized gifts is Netflorist.
Baby, it’s cold outside! It is winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Short days, cold nights and frost on the ground. Some parts have snow, rain or slush, depending on where you live. Here in Johannesburg, the mornings start out really cold, then it warms up a bit, just to cool down as the sun sets and it gets really cold at night. It is time for warm chunky jerseys, hearty vegetable soups and hot chocolate with marshmallows. It is time for lighting the fireplace and sitting back with a book under a blanket. For me, winter is a time for introspection and being at home.
It is nearly December and that means time for my Top 6 Blends 2016 Edition. This is the third year that I do my popular post on delicious affordable drams to buy. Same as last year, these are all drams I have tasted and really liked. You can with confidence, buy these drams as a gift for someone special or for yourself. Making shopping easier, one whisky at a time.
