On Scottish Soil

In Scotland again and it feels great.

Landed to beautiful weather, good friends, and a killer curry at Kebab Mahal

Walked into an OddBins and a Tesco to take note of the increases of whisky prices across the board since leaving the UK a year and a half ago. Everything is about six pounds more than when I was last living here.

The pubs are still where I left them.

Tomorrow I hope to pop in on the lads at Royal Mile Whiskies in the AM before heading up to Dufftown to spend some quality time at Glenfiddich and Balvenie distilleries and hopefully include a visit with the good folks at Duncan Taylor. I am sure I will get up to some more nonsense before heading back to my home, kjaerste, and bed in Brooklyn on Friday. Unlikely it will include another Malt Mission, but I do plan to down a few while over here.

Have a great week, wherever you are.

Glad to see you found Kebab Mehal. Wish I had known you were coming over - would have seen if you fancied a dram if in Glasgow at any point.

Could you publish this photo at higher resolution? Very beautiful...!

Oh, wow, wish I was there!

No Glasgow time this visit, I am afraid.

Pic is actually not mine, lifted it from an Edinburgh Uni site. Gorgeous pic, though.

Wish you were there, too, Matt.

Aye, and the prices will probably continue to rise too.
