Jesus! Last April I went to Scotland with David OG and it was one of the best times in my life. Yet, here I sit, alone with a bottle of whisky in my living room, feeling totally burnt out and a bit askew. Perhaps I need to look back on the memories from our wonderful journey to find the inspiration necessary to continue this quest.
Christ! Did we really drink these whiskies? It all seems a bit hazy at this point, but I think we must have because I took this picture. If you've ever needed a reason to travel to Islay, I think this should provide proper motivation.
Holy Cow! I remember drinking this with Jamie MacKenzie on the shores of the Bowmore distillery at around one in the morning. What a fantastic experience! Single malt whisky is awesome! What am I doing wasting my time with wine blogging? It's time to get back to what I know! Let's do this. I'm now sufficiantly motivated to get back down in the trenches. Let's see what comes of it.
I think David OG's prayer to the Celtic Cross of Islay should come in handy about now. We need a boost and there's nothing like the memory of Scotland to keep us going!
