Trip report follow-up
After a great couple of days touring Alameda, Berkeley and the wine country in Sonoma, we headed back to San Francisco for the Extravaganza.
Mistake #1 – We ate lunch at the Spinnaker restaurant in Sausalito
Mistake #2 – Always carry Imodium in your wallet (in your bag back at the hotel is not good enough)
Later in the afternoon, I was feeling Dizzy as we signed in to the tasting and received our booklets. During the Whisky Panel, I was quite ill. I was able to make my way to a number of whiskies I had not yet experienced and to a few others I needed a second look at from several months ago, namely Glenmorangie.
It was not a proper tasting experience because I was nauseous and not in the right frame of mind for whisky.
– Oh well, here’s what I tasted:
Highland park 18
Glenmorangie nectar d'or
Glenmorangie 18 xr
Glenmorangie Quinta ruban
We went to the Whisky Shop the next day and I bought a bottle of the Talisker Distiller’s Edition as it was my favorite from the event.
