Musical Drams: Glenrothes

Get yourself a glass and pour a heavily sherried Glenrothes (Adelphi’s 6 year old is highly recommended). I must say, it was hard to fit this with a song! A lot of powerful songs just didn’t have suitable lyrics. So I ended up choosing an Instrumental track. No relaxing this time. Swash-buckle your seatbelt and get ready for take off…

Not the pace to enjoy a whisky at but it reflects the character of the Whisky really well, I think.

Musical Drams: Ben Nevis

From the beginning it was my intention to bring something “extra” to the table.┬áHere’s the plan:

The winner of each tasting session will be paired with a “Soundtrack”. One of my other passions is music from various decades and I will attempt to find a song which enhances an/or underlines the expression of the Whisky. Maybe I am shoveling my own grave here…;) but I just love the thought of opening up the experience to the audible senses. Quite certainly I will be walking on thin ice, since everyone has personal memories attached to certain songs but I encourage you to give it a go. You may click on the image to play the song online if it is not in your collection.

Poor yourself a Ben Nevis (22 year Silverseal if available) sit back in your favorite chair and play the track. Just enjoy the moment and relax with your dram.
