A nice Islay single malt to mark Day 12 of #WhiskyAdvent
: Kilchoman’s Machir Bay. Peaty, but not as much so as other Islay’s that I’ve had, and the underlying vanilla and… caramel? toffee? comes through. I see a few reviewers who describe it as a “lighter” Lagavulin 16, and I can see that. It’d probably be a good dram for someone trying to acquire a taste for more heavily peated whiskies, like said Lagavulin.
I happened to call in sick today (yesterday’s cold, that I can’t take anything for because reasons, has gotten a lot worse. With the amount of, well, let’s say “productive” coughing I was doing for most of the first half of the day it was better that I rest up, then get a few things done over the VPN rather than playing Typhoid Mary at the office.) Felt mostly human again, if a little rough around the edges, by later afternoon, but that also meant I was actually home for sunset. Tried to catch the sunset in the glass; I think it worked out reasonably well. The whisky went right back into the bottle after this snap — if I can’t have my Nyquil to help me rest, I figured a spot of whisky might work. In a pinch. As one does. G’night.
