    Where's the blog this week?

    Written by
    I am not going to be posting a blog entry this week (well... except this one).  Why?   I spent the weekend at the Victoria Whisky Festival and I am still a little overwhelmed from that experience and to be honest I haven't really been able to concentrate on a single entry or idea (and I have a business trip to prepare for this week).  Highlights included an eight whisky / whiskey master class from Jim Murray (see picture), an unbelievable chance to sample the Gordon and Macphail Glenlivet 70 year old, participating in another WhiskCast virtual tasting and meeting Mark Gillespie, Grant Stevely, Simon Brooking, Ashok Chokalingam and many others.  Oh and I have a Glenlivet Nights of Passage tasting event tonight.... still someone has to do it.

    I have to admit to being a little skeptical about Indian whisky, but my doubts were quickly overcome.  The nose has some caramel and toffee notes with a little peat.   The taste at first is peaty and peppery with a slight sour note, then caramel, chocolate, fruit and vanilla notes come through.  Finally some oak in the slightly stringent finish.   Complex and delicious.   I have always loved Indian food, and it turns out I love Indian whisky too.
