06/04 - Whisky and... lamb

After skipping the last event (I wasn't really in the mood for mussels) I took the chance last week for another regulars' table of the Scotch Single Malt Circle in the Gasthaus Gemsle... the group is getting bigger and bigger and always we'd some nice bottles with all of those which were put on the table.

Two Tobermory... one from Cadenheads and the other one from the Limburg Dramclub, their first bottling is a peated Tobermory. Interesting to drink them side by side and with the Dramclub one being much better than the Cadenheads it lost its fascination when pouring it in later at the evening.

I'm not sure if I've not been in the right mood for whisky (the leaving cold was definitely not influencing my taste buds) but none of those whiskys didn't really get me... the 6 yo. Islay Blend from C&S (by far the cheapest one) hooked me up most... the latest release of the Caol Ila Destillers Edition was a disappointment too... diluded to 40 or 43 % it was just watery and boring...

The food was ok but honestly it's been better many times before... let's cross that evening off the list and look forward to autumn where this series will be continued...
