What is it about whiskey…

What is it about whiskey that makes it the perfect drink to unwind with? I suppose it’s the leisurely sips, the unhurried lifting of the glass, catching a whiff of the scent and that little bit of expectant burn. The lips tingle, the nose stings just in the slightest, and then the flavors burst out on the tongue before this comforting warmth wraps its way into you.

This past year has been filled with a lot of whiskey. Bourbon, rye, grain, scotch, all kinds of whisk(e)y.

Today was one of those stressful days when you need to force yourself to unwind. A glass of whiskey is perfect for that.

Tonight it’s Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye Cask Proof. 58% alcohol by volume, yet still full of flavor. Can it be described as almost tropical? Coconut, banana, cocoa notes…

May this coming week be good.

I made a magazine

Well, to be more accurate I made a Flipboard magazine, so it’s not quite as exciting.

It’s focused on American craft spirits and happenings within the liquor industry; relevant for me as I work on Liberty Spirits Asia and The Secret Mermaid.

Learn more about spirits!

Can I point out that trying to access a Flipboard magazine from the web instead of the mobile app is confusing?

Liberty Spirits Asia at Whisky Live

Many of you in Singapore have probably heard of or attended Beerfest. It’s a great time; hundreds of craft beers, live music, food, etc. It’s like Oktoberfest in the spring time… without all the German background.

Well… last year La Maison du Whisky organized the first Whisky Live in Singapore. It’s like Beerfest but instead of trying out all kinds of beer you hop from stall to stall sampling their whisky. It’s delicious, interesting, and gets people loose a lot faster (after all it’s whiskey…)

This year Liberty Spirits Asia will be participating and will be featuring Catoctin Creek’s Roundstone Rye, Lost Spirits’ Leviathan III, and Blue Ridge Distilling’s Defiant Whisky.

The folks over at Spirited/SG have written up a preview of Whisky Live and include a section on our American spirits. Have a read!
