Coming Soon…

Coming Soon
January is at an end and so (almost) are my travels. I will be back in Minnesota in a couple of days and drinking again (I’ve barely had a drink in a month). And the blog will be back to something resembling normal operations as well. That is to say there will be more whisky than food posts in February. I do still have a few restaurant reviews from Delhi left to post, and I haven’t even started yet on our meals in Hong Kong (where I am typing this), but there’ll be more whisky than food posts each week in February. We are moving house at the end of the month, though, and the excessive whisky collection was boxed up before I left town in December—as a result, reviews in February, and probably March too, will be almost entirely of samples that are more easily to hand (I cleverly did not label the boxes in which I packed my regular bottles). 

Here is the long list of potential reviews. As always, feel free to nominate ones you’d like to see reviewed for sure.
