ok, nothing stellar to report. there is a severe lack of availability here on the base of whisky of any quality. lots of blended stuff but that is not what i am after. at the second establishment i stopped in, they at least had a 12 yr glenlivet which can be counted as my first official scotch whisky tasting. it was nice and soft, well balance. warming to the stomach and pleasant. not as complex as i was looking for but it is my first baby step. i really should have taken up this interest while in england. i mean we traveled to scotland several times for god’s sake. but no, i wait until i am in the armpit of south korea to try to develop my palate.\
i do like a challenge i guess.
