Islay Malt, Tantric Flying and the Perseids

Never put a list in a blog. I was offered a malt last night, and sure enough, it too wasn't on my list. It was a 16 year old Lagavulin, from Port Ellen in Islay. And magnificent it was, too, with mature peat tones and something special acquired from the cask. It is one of a number of distilleries owned by Diageo. Another, also not on my list, is Gleneagles. The Lagavulin brightened up an unusually dark evening. Although at about 11 pm I discovered I was still wearing my shades.

Bobby was not on the malt. He didn't need to be, getting high enough without chemical assistance, as the piccie shows:

As we got home K saw a shooting star from the Perseids meteor shower streak across the sky.


  1. It's fun to have a clever camera.

  2. Or a clever photographer. You should have had a credit, shouldn't you? Sorry. Take one credit: the clever photographer was Megan.
