Bowmore Distillery

Our second day in Islay during the 2014 Scotland Trip started in Bowmore (Bogh More) – the largest settlement in Islay. I use the word ‘settlement’ because it looks larger and nicer than a village but it can’t be called a town :) 528 more words

Laphroaig Quarter Cask

Yesterday, the Laphroaig 10, today its younger sibling, the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. My understanding, probably wrong, is that this is the regular spirit that would normally be destined to reach 10 years of age for the 10 yo release being re-racked at a younger age into smaller quarter casks which impart far greater wood contact and influence to it (claimed by some to “speed up” the maturation process). 456 more words

Arkansans often complain about the lack of fine dining experiences the state has to offer.  The growing Northwest and Little Rock areas feature a few options; however, most fail to incorporate traditional Arkansas cuisine in an elegant style. 489 more words

Laphroaig 10

Laphroaig is my favourite distillery and in some ways the entry-level Laphroaig 10 may be my favourite real world whisky. By this I don’t mean this is the whisky I rate more highly than any other; I mean that it presents most of what I like about Laphroaig at a price that would allow me to drink it everyday if I were so constrained, and that I would not be unhappy drinking it every day—it rewards attention and it’s very pleasurable even when you’re doing other things that require more of your attention; it’s direct but it isn’t dumbed down. 348 more words
