Coming Soon…


By the time you read this I will hopefully be in Hong Kong. I’ll be here a week on work and then in Bombay for another week on work. And then on to Delhi for a couple of weeks to see family and do some research before returning to the US in late December, and then finally back to Minnesota in early January. It’s going to be exhausting but hopefully also fun and almost certainly with a lot of very good eating. Though I’m taking some samples with me to be assured of good whisky, I’m not planning to be doing much reviewing on the trip. But I do have a large backlog of completed reviews that will publish on a regular schedule through the month. I have more reviews ready than I plan to post so if any of these catch your eye more than others, write in below and I’ll move them to the top of the stack. In addition to the whisky reviews you can expect quick reports from restaurants that sling noodle soup and dumplings in Hong Kong and then Goan and coastal food in Bombay.

  1. Curious what you think of the Tomatin PX. I have a SC Tomatin that is 18yo PX and I’m loving it (even though I’m usually not a fan of either Tomatin or PX)
    Also, the Loch Lomond please. So few reviews of it and I want to hear why you put it on your well roundEd bar list.
    Safe travels!
