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.

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.
I also have a GIVEAWAY at the end for our South African readers. A bottle of Glenfiddich 12 yo! So keep on reading…
A few weeks ago, we came across a Fairview Roydon Camembert cheese at Woolworths. We loved the Camembert and whisky pairing we tried last year. Having never tried a Roydon, it landed in our basket. Made with cows’ milk and a dash of goats’ milk, the Roydon Camembert is produced in the traditional French method. The goats’ milk gives it a farmhouse flavour. Roydon Camembert ripens from the outside towards the middle. This Fairview Roydon Camembert has won numerous prizes in the World Cheese Awards.
