It is that time of the year again. I look back at all the whisky that I tasted and rated during 2017 and see how many whiskies I rated as ‘Divine’. From this, I choose my Whisky of the Year 2017. Always a fun process and a great way to look back on what happened during the year. Past winners include the Ballantine’s Limited Edition 17 yo Scapa, Kavalan Solist Ex-Bourbon Cask, Ardbeg Super Nova 2009 and the Glengoyne 21 yo.

The start of November. From here, it is only a hand full of sleeps till Christmas and not many more before the start of a new year. But before the year speeds to and end, it is first one of the most anticipated whisky events in Sandton – the Whisky and Spirits Live show. Held on the 8-10th of November at the Sandton Convention Centre, the show this year will, for the first time, incorporate not only whisky, but a variety of local gins and other premium spirits as well.
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.
