There has been a lot of dead air around here lately – mostly because I finally took some time to get away and have been in Japan for the past few weeks. Things are winding down and I’m headed back home tomorrow night. Another all-to-short vacation is coming to an end. I have been doing mostly non-whisky things while here but I did manage to do a couple of fun whisky related activities that I will be writing about shortly. I have also had a few tasty drams while here and one of my favorite of the trip was a peated single cask BenRiach that was just plain awesome! Tropical fruits, loads of white peaches and just a touch of peat, which was quite surprising.
