After several days of rain the skies cleared late yesterday and we had sunshine for the last several hours of the day. There was an afternoon cookout at work so the evening ended with only a small appetizer and an equally, small salad. The evning called for a Scot's whisky.
This particular Buichladdich is very "peaty" for this particular distillery which is more attuned to a lighter style of Islay single malt. Iodine, smoke and sea spray in complete balance made for a wonderful nose. At 110 proof, I did cut it with some spring water. Very good stuff.
