So stay tuned for its release in December, and my first official publication.
So on to my new project. First of all, what you must know about me, is that when I decide on something, there is really no discouraging me. It’s a need to accomplish whatever I set my mind to, no matter how smart or dumb or useless it might be. So for those following me, know that I have written a script, and still anxiously waiting on the editor to revise it. The screenplay is about my 6x great Irish grandfather that emigrated to Canada back in the early 1800.
Why I tell you this? Because back then, these hard, fisticuff men, were whiskey drinkers … and so I’ve decided I too would be a whiskey drinker … yes, yes I know how this might make me sound, but it’s not at all like that, which again, that last sentence might prove your point, but I digress. It was the same with espresso, because the last time I went to Italy, I wasn’t keen on the coffee beverage, in fact I thought it foul. And, when I travel, it is as much a visual, as it is a culinary experience, really full sensory overload. So I taught myself to drink espresso, and now I thoroughly enjoy it, and next time I travel to the ancient cradle of the world, I will enjoy my coffee shot. How many of us, when they first tried sushi, weren’t sure at first, now everybody you talk to, loves it.
So, why now, why whiskey, because one day I will visit the Emerald Isle, especially if I get to make my movie, and I will not only appreciate their friendly, heartwarming welcome, but fully intend to eat a large bowl of warm Irish stew, no doubt with potatoes, and a pint of Guinness, but also my glass of fine whiskey.
So far, however, my tastebuds have only had the chance to savour Scotch, I also intend to visit Scotland … not sure about Haggis… still on the fence.
So far I’ve tasted the Bowmore Islay, the Glenfidditch, the Macallan, and the Balvenie, all of them aged twelve years. Tomorrow I’d like to post a review of my findings, but we all know how that works out. So in the meantime, here are a few pictures of the bottles I’ve had the pleasure to try.
