Many many years ago, a group of friends went for a holiday in Zimbabwe. We first stopped off in the rugged Eastern Highland for some trout fishing and then made our way up to Lake Kariba. There we stayed in the Cutty Sark Hotel while exploring the beautiful dam and finding tiger fish. The name Cutty Sark alway stayed with me and reminded me of wonderful times with good friends. When I saw a whisky with that name, I just had to have it.

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.
It was one of those weeks! Frequent tantrums, fights about breakfast and school assignments not finished. Getting stuck in traffic, with deadlines looming larger than the truck you are stuck behind. Afternoon rush from ballet to swimming, soccer to extra maths, all with a grumpy toddler in tow. The husband down with man flu and the geyser breaking and no hot water. After a week like this, a glass of red wine is just not going to cut it.
A cold front is sweeping over South Africa. Temperatures have fallen dramatically and all thoughts of hot summer days have been eliminated by the rain, cold wind and dreary weather. The days are short and it gets dark early. There is more rain predicted for some parts and even a bit more snow expected.
