June was full of travels! Which just so happened to prompt a few whisky adventures with:

June featured three tasting sessions!

Alas I missed the Original’s Irish Night which featured:

  • The Wild Geese Rare 43%
  • Knappogue Castle 14 year 46%
  • Teeling Small Batch 46%

The Cabinet Whisky List

However it was ably substituted by a fabulous Peat theme with Winnipeg’s The Cabinet!

Do check out The Cabinet‘s post “Peat” on our evening too!

Paul John Distillery, Goa, India

One of our intrepid whisky ladies while on  a film shoot in Goa took a little detour to visit Paul John distillery!

This prompted my Revisiting the Paul John Bold 46% – currently my smoky ‘go to’ dram.

I also had fun comparing a Laphroaig 10 year with their PX Cask.

    No wonder I wake up with a headache every morning Carissa! Too much Whisky I suppose. 😆

    Looks like you had a lovely time. 😀 ♥

    • Hehe! Hardly! I’m very much a quality over quantity kinda gal. I’d rather enjoy a little than be miserable with a lot. 🙂

      • Sonel says:

        Glad to hear that. Thought you might have been drinking too much and I was getting the headaches! LOL!

        I am the same and when I can afford it, I do love my glass of W before bedtime. 😀

        • It is quite amusing how folks think just because I enjoy exploring whiskies and write about it that I’m a prodigious drinker! Far from it. I’ve even been known to sample, spit and even dump a whisky. Which is considered sacrilege by most but works for me. 😉

          • Sonel says:

            I think people think the same of the wine tasters but I don’t think that of W drinkers. I can drink as much as I want and won’t get drunk. Think that is why I love it so much. Not that I drink that much. Two singles would be more than enough. Two doubles would be the limit and then I would still feel fine, but then I go right to bed. It relaxes me so much. I think with Whisky there will never be any need for meds. 😀

            I will never dump a whisky. That is a waste. LOL!

            • Like I said, I’ve been called quite a heretic for not finishing something that doesn’t work for me! 😉

              My partner’s mother always has her glass of cognac each night… a kind of personal ‘medicine’. We figure at 86, she can enjoy what she wants! 🙂

            • Sonel says:

              If it doesn’t work for you, then it doesn’t. Always your choice and people should respect that. 😀

              I totally agree and I think we should enjoy our little pleasures, doesn’t matter what age we are. Life is way too short. ♥

            • Yup – indeed! 🙂
