Welcome to the Whiskey Wednesday Roundtable number 6! We have a few items related to Scotland’s favorite son, Robert burns; 100 year old frozen whisky; and Whiskey Bacon Pie! Maybe my favorite Whiskey Wednesday Roundtable yet!
1. Whiskey Wednesday Review:
Welsh whiskey was once deemed extinct. That is, until it was resurrected in 2004 by Penderyn Distilleries. Now they make one of the best whiskies on the continent! Take a look our review of the Madeira and the Portwood 41 expressions.
2. Interesting news story this week:
This week we have a couple of news articles because the world was just so dang busy!
Have you heard of Ernest Shackleton? Well, he lost his ship and a couple of crates of whisky over 100 years ago. Some of the scotch was brought up and duplicated. Now it’s back on the way to the bottom of the sea.
Our second story is about this Friday, January 25th which is Burns Night. We’ll be officially celebrating it on Saturday night, but you can bet I’ll pour a dram on Friday as well! This link is more of a suggestion as to the top 3 places to celebrate this momentous event but it also gives a brief background as well.
3. Our favorite whiskey related product of the week:
How about a book of poems and songs by the aforementioned Robert Burns.
4. Recipe of the week:
Whiskey Bacon Pecan Pie?! I’m literally drooling all over the keyboard right now!
5. Random coolness:
This beats the ice cube sphere that came out a few years ago…by a lot! How about an ice cube mold shaped like a skull? That’s what I’m talking about!!
