Lagavulin

by Jack
(Panama)

A sports bar in Panama is an unlikely venue for the whisky tasting experience of a lifetime.


I was with some friends watching the Preakness Stakes on one of the huge TV screens.

One of my friends was Canadian and he got to talking to a couple of his fellow countryman in the bar.

One of these gentlemen very kindly produced a bottle of 1989 special edition single cask Lagavulin that had been bottled in 2005.

After acquiring five shot glasses he poured us all a dram.

Unfortunately it was somewhat wasted on my Canadian and Australian friends as they clearly hadn't the palate to appreciate a truly wonderful malt whisky.

I waxed so poetical about it I had another two glasses pressed upon me!

A terrific whisky and definitely my favourite.
