I’d said in August that my posting schedule would drop and it did. I only posted 11 whisky reviews—the overall numbers were higher due to a higher than usual number of restaurant reports (from our recent trip to Los Angeles). The number of whisky reviews is unlikely to rise very much in September. And while I will not have quite as many restaurant reports every month as I did last month, I am more and more beginning to think of this as not just a whisky blog (and thanks to Heavy Table for listing me among their Minnesota food and drink blogs). Here is a brief overview of what you can expect in September.
On the whisky front: a number of reviews of “standard” malts. As with a number of whisky blogs my reviewing has often skewed towards the esoteric and I am looking forward to returning to a number of the malts I drank regularly when I was new to single malt whisky (and many of which I have not tried very often since) as well as some other entry-level malts. I’ll be reviewing other stuff too. Here is what’s on deck:
Balvenie 12 Double Wood
Bowmore 11, 2002 (Exclusive Malts for K&L)
Dewar’s White Label
Highland Park 12
Laphroaig Cairdeas 2014
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Port Charlotte PC 8
Yoichi 20, Genshu Cask 100126
Feel free to nominate some you’d like to see reviewed for sure.
On the food front: Over the next few months I will be doing a slow-motion survey of Indian/South Asian restaurants in the greater Twin Cities metro area. I’m generally dismissive of the state of Indian food in the US (see my comments here and here) and thought it was time I confirmed whether that attitude is still well-founded (at least here in Minnesota). The following restaurants will be visited and reviewed over the next few months:
Copper Pot (Minneapolis)
Dosa King (Spring Lake Park)
Gandhi Mahal (Minneapolis)
House of Curry (Rosemount)
Malabari Kitchen (Minneapolis)
If you have any favourites that are not listed here please nominate them below and I’ll see about adding them to the list.
