It’s a cold, wet, wintery night, so my gentleman friend and I decided to have a special drink. Laphroaig 10 year is a scotch whiskey from the Islay region of Scotland (I like to pretend it’s hard to find). These are whiskies known for their rich smokiness, which is a lovely thing to enjoy by the fire on a evening like this. The flavor is bold and reminds me of when my first husband and I traveled on the moors, right after the War. It’s a wet, wind-swept, smoky night in a glass.
It’s particularly nice with a piece of hard cheese. Curl up and enjoy.
