This week I’ve cracked open a bottle of Scotch, unlike me but dire times call for changing tacks. I have always like a good Scotch but it is not usually what I reach for. I’m finding it to be a perfect match with Halloween candy, particularly the chocolate ones. A classic blended whisky of 12 year old grain and malt whiskys, it has lovely toffee and spice notes wrapped in vanilla with a hint of smoke.
I’m sipping this watching election programming and trying to ease my mind. Who knows what the future holds but I’m happy to have more Johnnie Walker at home in the coming days.
